Reader request - small bathrooms 

Here is request #2 from Jeffrey and Julia of Stamford, CT: "I found your site when trying to come up with ideas for my small but master bathroom. My wife and I have three kids and are stuck with a bathroom that needs gutting and we have no idea where to start with picking colors and textures to do this project (on a dime, too.) The space is approx. 100 inches long and 60 inches wide. The sink and toilet is on the left, just as you enter this rectangle space and we have about 32 inches of shower space where we want to convert into a tub. I am at a total loss for what to do. I just know the shower wall is rotting and needs to come out. That causes me to loose all the other walls, too so it has become a total re-do, therefore leaving me with a blank canvas. All I know is that it needs storage and I want it to be the center piece of our already black wood furnitured-home, with white walls and ceilings, and natural-colored wood parquet floors. Ugh. So I write you in desperation for inspiration for something to do with our (god-awful) space and need for our simple family of five." Yikes. That is quite a small bathroom, and a master at that. I personally would try and leave the shower instead of a tub because a shower will save space (plus how do you fit a tub in 32"?). Here are some very small bathrooms that I hope can provide you with some ideas on where to go with your teeny tiny space.

Reader request - masculine bathrooms

Time for another reader request. This time I thought I'd get through 2 of them since I noticed a couple in my list had to do with bathrooms. The first comes from Sandro, who says he's renovating his bathroom and is struggling to find a very masculine look. Now this post is a bit subjective as some people may wonder what makes a bathroom "masculine"..a lack of pink perhaps? So here is my interpretation of what I think could be categorized as masculine bathrooms. (Stay tuned for request #2)

Wendi Young

It's in the details you know. Details lift an average space into something special. Icing on the cake is the cliché I believe. Wendi Young creates homes with an understated elegance, classic but not contrived and always with the well considered detail. It looks effortless but of course it is not.  Her beautiful outdoor spaces have me dreaming of summer in the chill of a southern hemisphere winter.  Don't miss the shoe-a-holic's idea of heaven after the jump.

Barcelona-based interior designer Adela Cabré has a knack for creating unique spaces that are timeless, moody and hip. The spaces below are my favourites from her portfolio - there's something intriguing in each one. I think my preferences are the dark, dramatic rooms. Now that's hot.

Bob O'Connor

  

From big city rooftop gardens to high end homes, from boho and quirky collections to midcentury modern and ending up with the only faux fur clad rooms you'll ever see on DTI. Welcome to the portfolio of photographer Bob O'Connor. Great shots that capture the character, the whimsy and the downright kitsch. The man not only has a great eye but a sense of humour. Warning - faux fur after the jump.
