Oriental Dragons in a Blue & White Bathroom

Blue and white is always popular in interiors and because it looks and feels clean, especially appropriate for the bathroom. This particular one was done for a client who wanted to go all out with the blue and white theme. As you can see in the photo, the accessories, towels, pretty much everything in the entire bathroom is done in blue and white. The Oriental Dragon motifs add an eclectic diversion to the otherwise traditional theme of the decor.

Blue and white bathroom with Oriental Dragon design sink and accessories

It’s a big bright bathroom with a large window and a gorgeous view of the countryside. The ultra high gloss foil finish custom cabinetry has lots of storage for all the other blue and white accessories not already on display. As you can see, the countertop is a bright blue Formica (the lady likes Formica, what else can be said).

The sink is a Kohler Devonshire Drop in. There are several dragons in various positions and a classic geometric border running around the edge of the sink in shades of navy and light blue.

A complete set of matching ceramic accessories were created including a soap dish, tumbler, toothbrush holder and vase all decorated with the dragons and/or border.

All of the dragons have a really fierce expression and are painted in a traditional Oriental style.

The dragon is truly a vintage decal, probably from the 60’s or 70’s and was lithographed as opposed to the way they are done these days which is usually as 4 color process. The lithographed decals produce excellent results with sublte color variations and very fine details, they fire onto the surface of the china nicely. One of the awesome properties of ceramic decals is that if they are properly stored, they are good for many, many years. They are basically ground up glass and a bit of medium so there isn’t too much that can deteriorate.

One piece Kohler toilet with Oriental Dragons design on the lid

One last shot…. of the toilet. This is a one piece Kohler model. The customer purchased the toilet and supplied the tank lid to us for decoration. I love it with the blue and white mosaic tile floor. You can also get a good look at the oversize wall tiles in this photo which really make this bathroom sparkle.

This particular sink is not on the website because we have just enough of the dragon motifs to do one more project. Interested? Visit our website and click on the contact us link at the very top of the page for more info.

If you are a fan of blue and white, we have several other designs on decoratedbathroom.com that feature this color combination. Two of our most popular are the Blue Amaranth and the Blue Amaranth Medallion which are a combination of roses and flowers in shades of blue. As always, all of our sinks are decorated by hand in the USA and kiln-fired for lasting durability and enjoyment.
