Between the porthole window (nicely echoed by the round mirror) and the starfish accents, this space could only be coastal. This proves you don't have to pile on nautical accents to lend a breezy, beachy feel. With mirrored sparkle, suave lighting and overtones of glamour, this bath radiates Hollywood Regency chic. Stripped back to the bare essentials, this bath typifies minimalist decor. Where do you think they keep the toiletries? Warm white tones, soft light and a sweetly skirted vanity seat? Feels romantic to me. All it needs is a vase of fresh flowers and a candle or two.

She wants a bedroom that makes a statement as loud and clear as she does herself. Her eye is honed for unusual finds, like a fabulous antique headboard and a classic Louis chair stamped with a face and splashed in lime green. An eclectic space gets her creative juices flowing. Creating an impact is second nature to the diva. A room almost entirely in hot pink? The diva does not hesitate to approve a bold color scheme. In fact, why would she stop at the walls? The diva never goes halfway – she ensures that the ceiling is in on the act, too. A diva knows that a room in all black exudes edgy drama, so you'd better believe she is all for it. The diva knows the talents and ways of the past can teach her multitudes, so she is no stranger to antiques. She mixes them in accordingly, proud of her one‐of‐a‐kind finds.The diva travels all over the world, so she is not about to have a bedroom without an incredible view. If she's a superdiva, she likely has several of these bedrooms with a view in all sorts of spectacular places.

"Who wouldn't want to relax in a hot bath while gazing into the sunset across the rolling hills?" he asks. Highlight the positive. "Prior to its remodel, this master bathroom had a built‐in vanity and tub surround that started at the entry door by the sinks and was carried all the way around to the shower", says Susan Brown of Susan E. Brown Interior Design. "By using a freestanding bathtub and separate vanities, I knew the space would be opened up yet still feel cohesive with the integration of similar colors and finishes". She adds that "having negative space surrounding the tub gives more emphasis to it as the pièce de résistance of the room. I continued to emphasize that aspect with hidden accent lighting that shines through the onyx tub deck and down onto the iridescent turquoise glass tiles, creating an 'incredible soft glow,' as my client put it".

Without losing the getaway‐home element, this room has a much more tailored look than most bunk rooms. The bedding is simple and tucked in tightly. The tone on tone of whites gives the room a clean and serene feel. Curtains are neatly stacked with a dense fabric. To get this look with a lighter fabric, have the curtains lined with a heavier solid material to complement the pattern you are working with. Better yet, give your guest bunkers a treat by lining the curtains with blackout fabric. Mix it up. Mismatched bedding can transform the feeling of a bunk room. When beds are snuggled into a small hallway or attic, finding not a single matching sheet, blanket or pillow brings you back to childhood, when the cabin was heaven for old linens, dishes and furniture that weren't being used at home. To create this look, resist the urge to buy sets. See a pillow you like? Just grab it and continue your hunt. Visit antiques stores and look for old wool blankets and quilts. One trip to the dry cleaner and they're ready for bed.

It could be a spectacular view from the tub, a spalike ambience, classic English country fixtures, or rich colors and exotic, hand‐painted tiles. Of course for many of us, a complete bathroom overhaul isn't in the cards. No matter what look is calling your name, there are ways to translate the key elements of the style you love into your bathroom without the high price of remodeling. Let's explore some accessible ideas in five dream bathrooms. Even without the massive square footage or fancy designer, you can pull together a gorgeous room with classic, crisp decorator touches that are well within reach. Swap out standard blinds for fabric shades and your bath will suddenly feel like a real room. Upgrade your towels for a fluffy version with contrasting piping or grosgrain trim.

I would love to curl up in that green chair with a good book – even the dreariest day couldn't bring me down. Another bonus to using such vibrant colors is that this room needs no additional artwork or accessories. It's very clean and simple, but in no way dull or lifeless. These perky blues and the leafy‐green color work well together in small doses, such as on fabrics, accessories or painted furniture. The lighter cucumber green is a great choice for the walls. Clockwise from top left (all from Sherwin‐Williams): Mariner SW 6766, Cucumber SW 6722, Oceanside SW 6496 and Picnic SW 6731. Turquoise is a popular color right now, and here it is paired with another color of the moment – intense orange. These two colors are opposite each other on the color wheel, making them a striking and attention‐getting combo. But because the walls, ceiling and floor are white, the effect is cool instead of cacophonous. Punches of bright blue and orange used sparingly, perhaps through a thick vertical stripe painted on the walls or easily changed‐out bedding, look fantastic against a white backdrop. Clockwise from top left: Light My Fire AC211‐5 and Cool Turquoise KM3238‐2, both from Kelly Moore, and Castaway DE 5738 and Tangerine Dream DE 5160, both from Dunn Edwards.

"The inspiration for this bathroom was elegant glamour", says Jamie Herzlinger of Jamie Herzlinger Design. "The easiest way to get elegance into your bathroom is by using a frameless shower, because it keeps the look clean and sleek". Embrace minimalism. "We were looking to have the colors of the limestone tile bounce light around the room and to use few if any noticeable details, in keeping with our firm's philosophy of embracing minimalism", says David Webber of Webber + Studio Architects. Infuse a sense of calm. "I was inspired by the tranquil river and landscape surrounding this home to create a peaceful sanctuary that brought the outdoors in", says Justine Sterling of Justine Sterling Design. "The frameless shower design was key in creating transparency, openness and a sense of calm". Invite nature to be your guest. "This master bath is in a summer home on a lake, and the back of the house faces the woods", says Nora Schneider of Nora Schneider Interior Design. "The shower faces an entire wall of windows overlooking the woods, and I wanted to invite nature in as an evergreen guest".
