Bathing in your Bedroom?


Today I ask you, could you bath in your bedroom? Or do you need to be in a separate room to do so? This beautiful image has inspired me to rethink my views.

  1. hmmm, I've seen this before, love it but can't imagine doing it, isn't it the girl from Melbourne with the shabby vintage shop and the big hair?

  3. wow... thats super fab. I've never seen anything like this.

    I have seen bathrooms in bedrooms with not very high walls.. and no ceiling...

    Hey.. in Kenya (at the Fairmont), I've seen open bathroom.. with walls on either side... attached to your room. I'm not sure if I explained it well enough.. Let me see if I can find a pic..

  6. Are you sure that's a bathtub in the bedroom? Or is it a bed in the bathroom! Either way, I prefer my privacy, thank you!

  7. This bedroom I could definately bath in! Wow, I love it! It would make a great back yard room, guest house, pool house. I don't have any of these, but they sounds great to me. :) KIM

  8. I have never before thought twice. But the relaxed atmosphere, chandelier, and vintage tub...I think it can, but rarely, work beautifully. Great blog!
    cheers,
    Chloe.

  10. I don't like to combine these functions. So, yes I need to be in a separate room. I looks kind of nice, but the tub to me just feels displaced.

  11. I've stayed in Bed & Breakfasts before that have the bathtub in the main room. They used to have tubs in the kitchen, so why not the bedroom. At least it more private than the kitchen. I love the way the room looks, bathtub or no bathtub.

  12. Why that may well be a living room with the sofa in it! :)

  13. I wouldn't normally, but this has such a great and feminine feel to it. You could imagine sitting there of an evening with candles burning and a glass of bubbles. Not sure I could see my fiance in that room though!

  14. When I lived in UK, we had a bit clawfoot bath that was open plan to our bedroom. I loved it - the only problem was the steam damaged some art work in our room.

  15. The room looks beautiful, but I just cannot imagine bathing in my bedroom (or sleeping in my bathroom!)

  16. Yes, I think that's Lyn Gardner's bedroom? Not sure if that's how you spell her name. She has beautiful taste and I always love her rooms. No way could I imagine bathing in my bedroom. I can see my four year old drowning us all in the splashes! Still, it's a gorgeous image.

  17. ohhh,Lyn Gardiner, I love her sooooo much. I would bathe anywhere if it looked like this

    ReplyDelete
  18. This room is gorgeous! But I need a separate room for my bath! :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I think it could be done. But only if your room is big and light and the bath has plenty of space around it.
    Our friends have a gorgeous 7 bedroom house in the south of France. The parents have a large bedroom taking up nearly a whole floor. The windows are light and look over a wood and the bedroom is simple.. They have a beautiful bath in the middle of their room. I could bath in that!

  20. I agree ... it's a glorious room, but I'd rather see it divided between bed/bath.

    ReplyDelete
  21. its very romantic and i COULD..but i think i would need other options too. paint a floor white though and you have me.

    ReplyDelete
  22. That room looks beautiful and maybe that would make bathtime more romantic and relaxing!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. oh this is the girl from empire... lyn gardner ?
    love her work...amazing...
    i dream of one day going down to melbourne and booking into one of her vintage tours...
    but i really could never have a bath in my bedroom...really need a separate space...

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well, a WHOLE bathroom in my bedroom, no thank you! But a soak in a claw-foot tub such as this right in the privacy of my own bedroom, YES, thank you very much!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I think the room is beautiful, i adore the lights, the floorboards and the bath is fabulous.... Unfortunately my bedroom/bathroom doesn't look like this!!??

    ReplyDelete
  26. I wouldn't have a problem...Makes it easier to get to get to the bed!. lol

  28. Truly. It's a very nice room, but I wish that the tub wasn't there.

    ReplyDelete
  29. lovely picture, i'd love to have this too!

    ReplyDelete
  30. This is a gorgeous room but....NO WAY, I definitely could not combine the two rooms! Interesting question though!

    PS I tagged you in my blog today Simone :)

  31. I have always been enchanted by the idea but when it comes down to it I am not sure I could do it but it would be a reason to keep tidy!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh... I love it. How I wish I were relaxing in that clawfoot tub now. *sigh* But in all honesty I wouldn't want my bath tub in my bedroom. But maybe for a weekend get-away- I think would love it.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh wow, I wouldn't mind bathing in a bath tub if it was in a room like that! Beautiful! xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  34. While I love that room, I don't think I could live like that. It would be great for a bed & breakfast type of weekend though.

    ReplyDelete
  35. It's a beautiful photo but I need the separation. What I wouldn't do for that chandelier though.

    ReplyDelete
  36. It's adorable but if I had that porcelain tub in my room it would be for decorative purposes only. Maybe fill it with cushions and pillows and make it a chair or storage? It's too out in the open in comparison with what I'm used to, and also, what do you do about the splashing all over your bedroom? :)

  37. I have to weigh in with a no. Even though it's pretty this is the one area where I would vote for function over form (rare for me).

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ooo I love the idea! What fun for a guest room too!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Thanks for all these great comments. Now I am not so sure if this is a bedroom or bathroom, whatever it is I adore it. And yes, this is Lyn Gardner's home from Empire Vintage in Melbourne. Stunning. Simone xx

    ReplyDelete
  40. yes I'd love to if I'd a room like that :))
    I've just found your blog and I love it congrats!!

  41. I love this room.. I think maybe at vacation cottage or something but I don't think I'd like that for the everyday.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I think if it was a holiday home I would go for it but my own home no, love the picture though.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Lovely as usual!
    Your absolutely gorgeous blog is mentioned on Watercolors this morning!!

  44. I have often thought about a bathtub in the bedroom. This one looks particularly inviting!

    Love your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I think I'd keep a shower for all the practical everyday stuff, but for lolling around in beautiful bath oils, eating nice chocolates and reading an inspiring book - well this would be perfect for that - is there a cup holder somewhere? That would be essential! t.x

  46. I DO have a slipper bath in my bedroom!

  47. DEFENITELY SEPARATED...Or a big bedroom with a bathroom but always a wall on between!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I really LOVE this room, but I definetively LOVE Lyn Gardeners Style and I think, this room is so romantic and female - love love love it! Sunny greetings from germany, geisslein
