Bathroom decor: Simple sophistication

By: Suzanne Moutis
One thing readers already know about Style at Home editor-in-chief Erin McLaughlin is that she has unlimited talent in the style department. Most might also suspect that she does nothing by halves. But just like the rest of us, the reality is that her time is at a premium, subject to the unpredictable – and chaotic – schedules of work and family. So when she moved into her westend Toronto home last year, it very quickly became clear that she’d need help taking on the renovation of her master ensuite.

Old meets new
Texture and patina in the form of an antique door add layers of warmth to the space. A tub with a square silhouette lends a modern, refined note. SIMPLE-waterfall.jpg
Waterfall counters
Seamless staron counters that fall to the floor are the latest luxury.

Big-box beauty
This simple IKEA godmorgon vanity proves the best spaces offer a mix of elements from big-box stores as well as boutique shops. SIMPLE-5.jpg
Little extras
Make a personal statement with your favourite perfume bottles, vintage vases and freshly cut flowers. SIMPLE-6.jpg
Energy-conscious choices
A programmable thermostat for the under-floor heating lets you customize your settings. SIMPLE-7.jpg
A place for everything
We love clever ideas for adding value, from inset shelving for toiletries to heated towel racks. SIMPLE-8.jpg
Space smarts
Opening up the space and adding neutral shades in muted colourways gives the bathroom its fresh, airy look. Repurposing IKEA’s kitchen cabinets as bathroom cupboards and pairing them with high-gloss white Abstrakt doors and simple Glira knobs keeps the aesthetic hotel-crisp instead of soft.
