Put a Pin in It (5.2)

The Bathroom. Since the age of the Greeks and Romans, the bath has played an important role in the regeneration of the human soul.   The heroes of ancient times bathed in warm water so as to regain their strength and invincibility and palaces throughout Greece have been uncovered with elaborate ceramic bathtubs and areas that were solely dedicated to bathing. In Rome, imports from around the world gave awareness to ointments, incense, combs, and mirrors. I can’t even begin to imagine what secrets Cleopatra’s bathroom might have held. In modern times, the bathroom, restroom, powder room, or at home spa is, next to the kitchen, one of the most important rooms in our homes. For this weeks “Put a Pin in It” we give you some of our favorite pins from our board, “Beautiful Bathrooms”.

The Arabesque.


In the world of tile design, where most everything is some sort of square or rectangle, any interesting shape stands up and gets attention. Such is the case with “The Arabesque”. It’s roots are embeded deep in the history of Arabic and Moorish decoration. Elaborate ornamental designs and geometric motifs grace the architecture of these lands and conjure up exotic environments of heady spices and perfume. It’s no wonder that this shape has found it’s way into the current design of today. Arabesque tile can be found in everything from fabrics to iphone covers, lamp shades to shower walls, and is quickly edging out the subway tile as the back splash de riguer. Perhaps these images can entice you to create a bit of the exotic right in your own backyard.
