Hand Painted Pedestal Sinks for Your Guest Bath or Powder Room

Pedestal sinks have been suffering from a lack of attention of late with everyone doing fancy vanities with vessel or undermount basins. But… if you have a guest bath or powder room and don’t need any storage, a pedestal sink is an easy option and if you incorporate one of our hand-painted sink designs, it will be the focal point of your new bathroom. Here are three pedestal options with our floral designs, the Gold Orchids Hand Painted Pedestal Sink, the Heirloom Roses and old-standby, Ivy. They are all great for traditional guest baths, powder rooms and half bathrooms. All of our hand-painted sink designs can be adapted to any size and shape of basin so if you don’t see what you are looking for, check our web site . We’ve got quite a few option for very small pedestal sinks, which are popular in historic renovations and remodels due to the often very limited space for a guest bath or powder room. First up is this spectacular pedestal with a gold floral design, the…

Gold Orchids Hand Painted Pedestal Lavatory

gold orchids design hand painted bathroom pedestal lavatory sink

Gold Orchids design on an American Standard Pedestal.

The Gold Orchids design is made up of matte and shiny metallic gold orchids with leaves and stems which are delicately outlined in black. As usual, kind of hard to see it in it’s true beauty with our photography, but it’s very flashy. All that gold on the sink really shines. Unfortunately, the American Standard Repertoire is not currently available. I’m saying not currently because you never know, they might bring it back because it was a great sink for decorating. However, we can apply this design to any pedestal lavatory. We are just about to do a custom version on an almond color Kohler Anatole Pedestal, which is a very expensive pedestal sink with a beautiful fluted leg and sculpted bowl. I am always hesitate to start with such expensive fixtures because sometimes they break in the kiln during firing or worse, during shipping. We are also doing a toilet tank and bowl for the customer in the same design so it’s all going as a freight shipment on a skid so the ‘breaking risk’ will be greatly reduced. After all that work, we don’t want our products to get damaged in shipping so we pack them up pretty well with extra boxes and shipping foam.

The orchids, leaves and stems are a shiny metallic gold with matte gold lines and black outlining. The sink is truly spectacular ‘in the flesh’ and can be coordinated with any color bathroom, black, gold, white, red, etc. If you prefer something less flashy and a little more traditional, this next sink is a great option…

Heirloom Roses Hand Painted Pedestal Lavatory

Heirloom Roses design on a white St Thomas Pedestal Lavatory

This particular pedestal, in the Heirloom Roses design, was done for a client who wanted lots of pink roses all over her bathroom. She got it. We also did a matching toilet, covered in the same pink and white roses with dusty green leaves. We have made a few of these on pedestals over the years and I’ve heard from our customers that they cherish them (as they do with most of our designs). The sink it’s on is a St Thomas Arlington pedestal, the largest size, which they have thankfully discontinued. The tops on them weighed about 40 pounds and it was tricky getting them into our top loading kilns!

Ivy Hand Painted Pedestal Lavatory

Ivy Design Painted on a Petite Traditional Pedestal Lavatory

Here is a nice edition of our Ivy design applied to a small traditional pedestal.  The Ivy leaves are rendered in several shades of green with dark brown stems and trail over the bowl. Not too much of the design is on this pedestal lavatory but it can always be modified to include more. We did a matching toilet tank for this custom sink too.

Ivy Hand Painted Pedestal Bowl

Here is a top view of the pedestal bowl showing how the Ivy design looks. Can you tell I’m getting a little tired. Time to end this post and spend some time making some sinks and not doing ‘social media’ for the web site, including this blog. As always, anybody who is reading this… THANK YOU… and I hope you will check out our complete collection of hand painted bathroom sinks, toilets, tiles and accessories, all made with love, by me (Lynne), by hand in the USA at www.decoratedbathroom.com. 

Beautiful Blue Tiled Very Modern Yet Traditional Bathroom

Why is it that everything so gorgeous is always Italian? I can speculate on the answer but what I do know is that what I see… I like. Maybe it’s got something to do with all those years of tradition, or living somewhere surrounded by all that beautiful art and architecture. Whatever it is, from cars to shoes and handbags, wine, food, and… tiles. There are so many options at the moment that are totally unique, totally gorgeous, totally expensive (I’m sure) but would go so totally great with some of our hand-painted sinks. Two that would look great with this beautiful blue bathroom are the Elegant Swirl and the Fancy Emblem.

Super Cool Totally Blue-Tiled Contemporary Traditional Bathroom

Fab Ceramica blue italian tiles

This bathroom interior is a take-off of a traditionally-styled bathroom design, but that’s not wallpaper or wainscoting on those walls, they are tiles! The two different styles of blue vertical stripes coordinate beautifully with each other, and the white row of sculpted trim tiles frame the space and create a needed break between the two patterns. The black wood antique dresser or vanity is well-proportioned with a wide width and elegant long legs and has the stature to stand out around all those stripes. The curving lines of the ornate mirror, antique lamp, and decorative accessories and blue and gold bathroom mat add a little more style and also create a break from all the vertical movement with their organic shapes and gold color tones. I especially like the bathroom floor covering, you don’t see anything like that at Target, HomeGoods or even Macy’s… maybe Neiman Marcus or Saks. The overall effect of this bathroom is relaxing, clean and sophisticated. I would love it.

Our Fancy Emblem or Elegant Swirl design in platinum or gold would be awesome painted on the front of the large rectangle-shaped vessel sink. The gold would pick up the gold accents on the accessories and floor covering. Of course, it would be equally great in platinum, it would tie in the with chrome faucets and silver always works well with those shades of blue.

Elegant Swirl Design Decorated Vessel Sink in Metallic Gold

Elegant Swirl design in gold painted on a white vessel sink by decoratedbathroom.

This is our Elegant Swirl design shown in gold on a white rectangular vessel basin. The curved lines and swirls in this design would create a welcome contrast with the stripes on the walls as well as tie in the with more ornate style of the accessories. A little bling on the sink is never a bad thing! The next sink that would look good is…

Ornate Fancy Emblem Design on a Square D’Vontz vessel basin

This is the Fancy Emblem design. It’s an ornate motif we created to dress-up the front of a boring white sink. If you visit our web-site, decoratedbathroom.com, you will find some other photos of the sink where you can see the metallic shine a little better. This design would complement the blue bathroom shown above the same way as the Elegant Swirl design, a little break from all the hard edges of the striped tiles.

We have a thing for super-cool tiles right now. Check out our other blog posts featuring some of these sinks and other exquisitely-tiled bathrooms.  Thanks for reading and please check out our complete collection of hand-painted, hand-decorated sinks at decoratedbathroom.com,. All made by me, by hand in the USA!


Stunning Black on Black and White Decorative-Tiled Bathroom

This super elegant bathroom enchants with oversize black and white wall tiles with an ornate emblem that contrasts beautifully with the same design done in gray on black. Another European style ‘salle de bain’ with clean lines and a sophisticated atmosphere and our Fancy Emblem or Big Fancy Border hand painted sink designs would be the perfect complement to this interior.

This photo came from Houseideas.org but I can’t find it on there now. Sorry cause the tiles are pretty gorgeous and I’m not sure where they come from, Italian most likely. Check out the shadowy-looking gray on black tiles complementing the white on black section… love it.

Gorgeous black and gray and black and white tiled bathroom

The bathroom looks great ‘as-is’ but one of our decorated sink designs, in shiny metallic platinum, would make it even better!  Here are a few options.

The Fancy Emblem Hand Painted Vessel Sink

Three quarter view of the Fancy Emblem Painted sink in platinum. The design is on all sides of the vessel sink.

We created this design, the  Fancy Emblem  to create a little drama on the front of a plain white sink. It could be painted on the sink as a single emblem or multiples could be applied to create a design echoing the motifs on the tiles. In platinum of course. Another option that would also tie in well with the tiles is this next sink… the

Ornate Big Fancy Border Design Hand-Painted Sink

big fancy border hand-painted drop-in sink

The Big Fancy Border design painted on a white American Standard Sebring drop-in basin.

This is the Big Fancy Border design, shown in gold on an oval drop-in but as with most of our painted sink designs they can be adapted to many different installations. The border would fit perfectly around the outside of the sink in the black bathroom, of course in platinum. The ornate swirls and leaves would tie in beautifully with the brocade (ish) design on the wall tiles.

If it was my bathroom, I think I would go for something way over the top, like the Wrapping Paper Flowers design, in black on white. It’s not a design for the faint of heart but neither is this bathroom!

Black & White Geometric Floral Hand Painted Under Mount Basin

Black & White Geometric Floral Hand Painted Under Mount Basin

All of our sinks, toilets and bathroom fixtures and made by hand in the USA and kiln-fired for lasting durability. We use a combination of ceramic decals and some hand-painted embellishment. Our decals are made using the same process that people have been decorating china with for close to 200 years. Finely ground glass pigments are combined with a medium and silkscreened using the traditional methods. These decals are applied to the sink or toilet and then fired in a kiln to a very high temperature which fuses the design with the surface of the fixture. The design will not wear out or fade away with proper care.  Please check out our complete collection of hand-painted bathroom sinks, toilets, tiles & accessories at www.decoratedbathroom.com.

Very Sheik Purple-Tiled Bathroom, by FapCeramiche

This Euro-style bathroom with multi-patterned tiles in many shades of purple stands out among the norm in bathroom design. Lots of our hand-painted sink designs could be combined with this unique interior but the two we are featuring in this blog post are the Fancy Emblem hand-painted in platinum and the Wrapping Paper Flowers in the subtle contrast of gray and white.

Multi-Pattern, Many Shades, Purple-Tiled Bathroom

Gorgeous!!!!! Purple Tiled Bathroom by FapCeramiche

I love the fact that so many different patterns and shades are combined in the same space to achieve a unified effect. From the oversize multi-dimensional floral tiles on the wall to the subtly-lined, lighter shade and totally different design in the shower. The floor tiles are the same, but a smaller size and shape to add another dimension. I especially love the shower room, very European to have it like that, kind of a wet room. The fact that the water splashes on the floor (with a drain) and not the glass enclosure saves a lot of squeegee time and keeps your bathroom looking good 24/7. Notice the mosaic tile on the floor in the shower room, great for practicality and it ties in all the other shades of purple in this bathroom. The wall mounted toilet is great too. Hopefully bathroom design in the USA will keep on evolving to a European style and standard and include some of these practical additions. Several of our hand-painted sinks would be a great addition to this bathroom, here are a few options.

First up is the Fancy Emblem design and one or more of the symbols would fit beautifully on the front of the sink.

Ornate Fancy Emblem Design on a Square D’Vontz vessel basin

Fancy Emblem hand painted vessel sink by decorated bathroom

Fancy Emblem design hand-painted vessel sink in real metallic gold would be a nice addition to the bathroom.

This ornate emblem would fit right in with the eclectic style of the bathroom. We created the Fancy Emblem motif to ‘spice-up’ the front of a boring white sink! Sorry about the lackluster photography, the design is actually a nice, bright and very shiny metallic gold. If you visit our web-site, decoratedbathroom.com, you will find some other photos of the sink where you can see the metallic shine a little better. It’s shown in gold here but looks great in platinum too.  Next up…

Wrapping Paper Flowers in Gray on a White Vessel Sink

Wrapping Paper Flowers Hand Painted Sink.

Graphic and textural floral design, Wrapping Paper Flowers, in gray on a white vessel sink.

Because there is so much going on in this purple bathroom, the Wrapping Paper Flowers design in a subtle contrast of gray on white could be great too. It’s a geometric floral design which looks totally textural with this minimalist contrast, almost like fabric. You just want to run your fingers over it. Again, this one is very hard to show in a photo. If I was a better photographer, or could afford to hire a professional maybe it would look more like it actually does! Maybe one day… This design can be custom-colored to any shade and would also be beautiful in this bathroom in another light shade of purple or lavender. Oh la la. It can also be way out there like the tri-color version we did in shades of blue and green. Check it out in the previous post, Custom Floral Vessel Sink Not in a Bathroom.

This is a close up of the geometric, stylized floral design.

When we say hand-painted, it’s a loose term only to describe the end product which is a hand-painted sink. There are some people out there who paint their designs by hand, but all the others, including Kohler, Sherle Wagner and almost everybody else who creates decorated sinks uses ceramic decals. They are the same thing that is used on mugs and china and create an extremely durable and long-lasting finish. All of our hand-painted sinks, toilets, tiles and accessories are hand-made in the USA by me and are guaranteed for the life of the fixture, the design will not fade out or wear away with proper care.

Scented Garden Dresden Style Hand Painted Floral Bathroom

If you are looking for a traditionally hand painted sink or basin with a colorful floral design… THIS IS IT! You’ll think of a fragrant flower garden everytime you walk into the bathroom with this versatile Dresden style floral Scented Garden design painted on the sink. Multiple bouquets of flowers in many colors including tulips, poppies, roses, daisies, violets, chrysanthemums, iris, morning glory, cornflowers, a even hummingbird, a ladybug and butterfly or two! Because the colorful nature of this design it is easily coordinated with any bathroom decor, vanity or countertop. It’s one of our most popular designs and always in style.

In this bathroom the customer renovated for an updated, more contemporary styled bathroom with the fresh color combination of blue and white which really set off the colors in the design.

Blue & White Scented Garden Hand Painted Bathroom

Blue and White Scented Garden Bathroom

As you can see by the top view of the sink, it’s a little less design than we normally put on this basin. However, since there was so much of it everywhere else in the bathroom, the customer decided it would be prudent to include a little more white space on the sink. It’s installed here in quite a large family bathroom so there is plenty of room and a big skylight makes it nice and bright. The Scented Garden has been incorporated into the entire bathroom, on the sink, toilet, tiles & accessories. You can see in the photo below smaller flowers in the design which have been added to the towel bar to tie it in with the backsplash and sink.

Side view of the Scented Garden Painted Sink

You get a good view of the selection of flowers on the basin including roses, tulips, poppies, daisies, violets, chrysanthemums, iris, morning glory and cornflowers to name just a few in colors including red, pink, yellow. purple, blue, green, orange… ok just about every color except black. It makes it really easy to pick up one color or a few to coordinate the rest of the bathroom too.

Toilet Tank with Hand Painted Scented Garden Design

Scented Garden Floral Hand Painted Toilet

Here is a shot of the Scented Garden toilet, a 2-piece St Thomas Arlington and goes great with the traditional feel of the design. The tiles were all custom fired with a selection of smaller bouquets of matching flowers on the floor and also on the toilet paper holder. The individual accent butterfly tiles break up the expanses of white space and suit the overall theme of this garden inspired bathroom.

The client wanted to tie the whole thing together with an elaborate mural in the shower, framed with navy blue accent tile. The design was worked out on paper first then transferred to the individual tiles for firing.

The sink, toilet and mural shown in this bathroom are not shown on our web site. However, we can custom-make them for you with pleasure. Just contact us @ Lynne@decoratedbathroom.com for details. Please check out our complete collection of hand painted and decorated bathroom fixtures at decoratedbathroom.com.

Metallic Gold or Silver Brick Border Painted Sink… and bathrooms it would be good in.

Just added this new geometric metallic border design to the web site. It’s a stylized brick pattern about 1-1/4″ wide and can be incorporated into a traditional or contemporary bathroom. Easily coordinated with any vanity style, granite or marble countertop. Stunning in gold or platinum, the perfect accent to a stylish and sophisticated bathroom interior.

It’s really hard to get a good shot of these metallics and let’s face it we are not professional photographers, metallics are very hard so please excuse the photography and use your imagination. In real life, in the flesh, they are as close to perfect as humanly possible. We take great care when making every one to ensure complete satisfaction to all our customers.

This image gives you an idea of the shine and brilliance of the metallic on the sink and how the design lights up the basin.

Shiny platinum brick border painted sink

This photo attempts to show the true metallic shine of the platinum on the sink

Here are a few bathrooms from Houzz.com I think the Brick Border would look fantastic in.

Relaxing Gray Blue Family Bath with Wood Floors and White Cabinetry

This is a beautiful bathroom. Who wouldn’t want to walk into it every day with that gorgeous tree out the window. What do I like especially about this interior besides the whole thing? For starters the bathtub looks pretty good, great place for a quiet soak, nice shower, love the wood floors, white cabinetry, marble countertop and square sink. It looks clean, too. I’m not sure if I would do this bathroom with my oddball taste, but if I was shopping for a home and saw this I would be ecstatic, and relived, it looks timeless, stylish, relaxing and functional.

Elegant Neutral Bathroom with Black Cabinets and White Marble

Many of our border designs would look great with the simple black cabinetry shown here. We featured this bathroom in a previous post with the Chain Maille Border in platinum but the Brick Border would be a smart choice too. I love the warm and neutral putty tone on the wall, the marble counter top, black insets on the floor and clean lines of the vanity. It looks calm, really clean and germ free. I’ve been seeing lots of rectangular sinks lately, I like them. Easy to decorate and they coorinate well with the geometric lines in this bathroom. It looks awesome as is, but would be just a little more special with the addition of one of our designs on the sinks, like the Brick Border in platinum.

White Zen Bathroom in Lawrence Park, Toronto

I love this white bathroom, it’s in Lawrence Park, Toronto, the very neighborhood I grew up in. I can just imagine the outside of the house, for sure bricks…and therefore the Brick Border pattern would match. Bit of a stretch but it would tie in nicely with the floor, chrome accessories and faucets, in platinum. Just a little extra something to define the style. They obviously have some, otherwise there wouldn’t be a pink chair in there and the groovy chandelier! It looks clean and there is plenty of storage space so it can be kept that way.

All of our sinks meet the strictest quality control standards so that every one is as close to perfect as possible when it leaves our studio. We take extra care to pack them in expanding foam so that they arrive to you in perfect condition. As always, all of our sinks and toilets are kiln-fired for lasting durability and will not fade out or wear away with proper care.

That’s it for today. Time to go have a bath in my boring beige and biscuit-fixtured rustic tuscan style bathroom… argh. We are moving soon. Looking forward to a new bathroom in the next house and doing a before and after for our profile on Houzz.com.

Elegant Bathrooms, Gorgeous Mirrors and Gold or Platinum Border Painted Sinks

Here are a few beautiful bathrooms found on Houzz.com that would look great with one of our Metallic Border hand painted sinks in them.

Super Elegant Powder Room Featured in Architectural Digest

gorgeous gold powder room

Powder room of Emily Summers, featured in Architectural Digest, April 2012. Photo by Nikolas Koenig. Wallpaper, Cannon/Bullock; pendant light, Gunther Leuchtmann from Plug; vintage mirror and Kohler faucet.

The first is this gorgeous gold and white powder room. It’s from Architectural Digest so that accounts for the high level of style. I love the convex mirror and especially that wallpaper, it looks 3-D. The whole thing looks great just like it is but…. the Matte & Metallic Gold Border would make it even better, don’t you think?

Matte & Metallic Gold Border Decorated Bathroom Sink

Matte & Metallic Gold border design looks great on this Kohler Devonshire undermount.

This is the Matte & Metallic Gold Border in the wider version (approx 1-1/4″ wide) on a Kohler Devonshire. It can be applied to most undermount sinks, and probably some drop-ins and vessels too. The photo doesn’t do it justice. It shines beautifully in metallic glory.

San Francisco Showcase Home with Stenciled Wall and Sunburst Mirror

I absolutely love this interior, very chic and full of contrasts and interesting juxtapositions. The clean lines of the vanity contrasted with the organic shape on the wallpaper. The traditional color and detail on the cabinetry contrasted with the whimsical motif and color on the walls. The attention-grabbing mirror and gold accent accessories ties it all together. Lots of our sinks would look great in here. Something more textural and eclectic like the Wrapping Paper Flowers design but one of our geometric borders in gold would probably be a more conventional but still totally spectacular choice. The Chain Maille in gold could be nice but I think the Greek Key(ish) Border in gold would be the perfect fit and pick-up on the gold detail on the vanity. Groovy!

Greekie Key Border in Metallic Gold Painted Sink

Greek Key(ish) Border design in gold on a white 17 x 14″ undermount basin

The Greek Key(ish) border is a 21st century adaption of the ancient Greek Key Motif. It’s available in real metallic gold or platinum and can be applied to many different sink installations.

White Marble Powder Room with Ornate Gold Mirror & Vanity

I think I saved the best for last and we’ve used this one in a previous post but I love it so much it’s worthy of two mentions. We’ve got a few ornate gold designs that would be totally awesome with all this white marble and drop dead absolutely gorgeous gold mirror. I bet that wasn’t cheap. If you are creative you can be innovate and buy a cheap plastic ornate mirror (they have black ones for $39 at Ikea that are really not too bad) and fake gold leaf it. This bathroom is pretty awesome as it is but the addition of the Big Fancy Border to the sink would be even better. It’s got a lot of gold on it so it makes a big shiny splash.

Big Fancy Gold Border

Big Fancy Gold Border really shines on a white American Standard self-rimming baisn.

The Big Fancy Gold Border design is on the rim of the sink in this example but it can be applied to the inside of an undermount basin as well. Also available in Platinum.

Fancy Gold Border Hand Painted Fluted Drop-in

Fancy Gold Border design on a white fluted drop-in sink.

Fancy Gold Border design on a white fluted drop-in sink.

This one is a little less splashy but still gives a good metallic shine, the Fancy Gold Border. It’s composed of stylized small leaves winding around the sink on a central vine. Currently available in gold only but next time we do a run of platinum borders, we will be adding this one.

All of our decorated bathroom fixtures, hand-painted sinks and toilets are kiln-fired to permanently fuse the design with the surface on the sink. They will not fade out or wear away with proper care. Please visit our website decoratedbathroom.com to see our complete collection of hand-painted bathroom sinks, all made by hand, with love and great care, by me!!!, in the United States of America.

Flower Power for Your Home and the Bathroom!

One of our hand-painted sinks was just featured in an Ideabook on Houzz.com !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The sink is the black and white version of the Wrapping Paper Flowers Design.

Wrapping Paper Flowers Design Painted Sink in Black

This is an original design inspired by vintage gift wrap that we came across in our travels. It’s available in several, actually any, color and looks fabulous and quite a bit different in every one.

 Blue and Green Custom Painted Vessel Sink

One of the most beautiful versions we have created with this design is this three-color version in turquoise, lime green and navy blue on a biscuit vessel sink. It was elegantly installed in a dining room in Israel and the colors were custom matched to the client’s specifications. It was featured in a previous post with more photos and additional design information.

One of my absolute favorites is this subtle edition with the design in white on a biscuit vessel sink. Totally textural, it looks luscious. Not the best photography, hard to capture all the subtleties. Check it out on the website.

Wrapping Paper Flowers Design in Gray Painted on a White Vessel Sink

Wrapping Paper Floral Design in gray on a white vessel. Another subtle, textural version of this design.

This one is also very subtle, it’s done in a very light gray on a white sink. It would be nice in an all white bathroom and is also very textural in nature. It looks like fabric. Check it out on the decoratedbathroom website. Please have a look at the ideabook on Houzz.  It’s got some great contemporary-styled floral items. I personally love the animal pillows, seriously gorgeous!

All of our sinks are made by hand with great love and care in the USA. They are kiln-fired to temperatures of approximately 1500 degrees F and will not fade out or wear away with proper care. Please check out our complete collection at decoratedbathroom.com.  Thanks for reading.

Bathrooms That Would Look Great With Our Platinum Chain Maille Border Painted Sink

Just doing a little browsing on Houzz.com looking for photos of bathrooms our sinks would look good in. There are multitudes, mainly ones with vanities and under mount sinks that would be even more spectacular with one of our gold or silver borders on them. That’s why we’ve created five new Metallic border patterns designed to fit on undermount sinks. This one we are calling the Chain Maille Border because it kind of looks like chain maille, from a distance.

Platinum Border Painted Sink in Contemporary Black Powder Room

Silver Border Chain Maille sink in black bathroom

Here it is on a white sink, white marble counter, a simple silver-framed mirror and black walls. It’s an elegant addition to the otherwise understated powder room and makes this bathroom unique.

Chain Maille Border in Real Metallic Platinum Painted Sink

Platinum Chain Maille Border Hand Painted Sink

Chain Maille Border design in platinum on a white 17 x 14″ undermount.

The Chain Maille design is available in real metallic gold or platinum. It’s shown here in Platinum on a 17 x 14″ standard under mount basin.

Platinum Chain Maille Geometric Border Hand Painted Undermount Sink

Detail shot of the Chain Maille Border design on a white undermount sink.

Here’s a close up shot of the design. As you can see it’s a bunch of little inverted ‘L’ shapes. It kind of looks like Chain Maille…very textural. Sorry about the photography, as usual, it’s very hard to get a good shot of a metallic.

It coordinates seamlessly with many different styles of vanities and will fit right in with these clean-looking, contemporary bathrooms found on Houzz.

Neutral Master Bath with Black Cabinetry

I really like the versatility of this bathroom design, so many of our sinks would fit right in. Neutral, but not boring with the putty-colored walls and the touch of black order on the floor. Looks like there is lots of light, a nice tree outside the window and plenty of storage too. The Chain Maille Border would tie in perfectly with the geometric motif on the floor, and fit so well on those rectangular under mount basins.

Contemporary Art-Filled Master Bath

This is another Canadian bathroom. Is is that there are lots of Canadians on Houzz or is it that the style appeals to me? I just did another blog post with a bathroom from Lawrence Park Toronto, the very neighborhood I grew up in! I’m scaring myself. Maybe It’s been too long since I’ve been home, eh? I love the glass inset closet doors on either side of the vanity, especially the soft light glowing through them. Gorgeous, clean, sublime, and I like the art on the walls, but art on the sinks I would seriously like too, something like the platinum Chain Maille Border!

Traditional Powder Room with Bevelled Mirror and Sumptuous, Sultry Mood

Since I’m on a roll with Canadian bathrooms, here is another one and what an elegant powder room it is. I wouldn’t mind going in there at all. I would have preferred it if they had installed the sink with the drain holes towards the front so that you don’t see them. Adding the Chain Maille Border in Platinum to the basin would tie in with the chrome accessories, steampunk-esque vanity and geometric pattern on the floor. Love the textured wallpaper and the almost purple hue in this photo. It really creates a cocoon-like mood.

We have lots of other Platinum and Gold Border designs that would also look great in these bathrooms. Check them all out at decoratedbathroom.com. All of our sinks are made by hand in the USA using the age-old techniques of ceramic decoration. Our fixtures are kiln-fired to temperatures around 1500 degrees F which fuses the design to the glaze on the sink and becomes permanent. It will not fade out or wear away with proper care. Thanks for reading. I’ll be back soon with more bathroom ideas for our custom-made decorated bathroom fixtures.


Spring Flowers in the Bathroom – Painted on Sinks

Spring is here and our customers have been adding lots of flowers to their bathroom sinks lately. What’s popular?

If you are looking for a colorful and traditionally styled hand-painted sink, the Scented Garden design is for you. You’ll be reminded of a fragrant flower garden every time you enter the bathroom. Lots of colors to coordinate the rest of the room around and just about every kind of flower including roses (of course), tulips, daisies, violets, iris, cornflowers, a butterfly or ladybug and even a hummingbird or two. They are one of our most popular flowered designs. Check it out in a white & blue bathroom with matching toilet and custom tile mural in the Installation Gallery on our site.

The next on the flower agenda is this Chintz design. We’ve made a few of these in the last couple of weeks. Something about spring, maybe people have a more positive and sunnier outlook now the economy is better and the awful winter weather is finally gone. This one is full of delicately painted pink roses with lots of smaller blue and yellow blossoms with lots of green leaves. It can be applied to any sink or toilet in any combination from just a little to a whole lot of flowers all over the sink. Check out the Elegant Chintz Bathroom and Accessories post to see it installed in a white marble and mirrored bathroom with a matching hand-painted toilet and bathroom accessories.

Magnolia Soulangiana Painted on a White Drop-in Sink

Another popular floral design is the Soulangiana. We just made one of these for a lady with a 200 year-old stone farmhouse in Pennsylvania. Guess what they have out front besides a gorgeous porch? …a gorgeous Magnolia tree (they sent a photo) and the homeowner decided to pick-up on that theme and chose this sink for the powder room. The house and location looked idyllic.

All of our sinks are made by hand in the USA with great love and care. We take pride in what we produce and every one is a work of art, kiln-fired for lasting durability. Please check out our complete collection at decoratedbathroom.com and thanks for reading.
