Everyone knows kitchens and bathrooms sell a house. But even if you have no intention of ever putting the family homestead on the market, you should still give the bathrooms the respect they deserve. (Did you know National Toilet Day is November 19? Neither did we.) Consider adding a little country flair to the each and every single bathroom in your home—we’re talking master, powder, and guest. Rustic reclaimed wood, natural stone, vintage patterns, and lightly patinaed pieces aren’t just for the more public spaces—these days, they’re all must-haves for those lavs. And who knows? You might feel so inspired by the countrification process that it inspires you to take on even more intense bathroom projects!

It comes down to an inherent simplicity, which perhaps explains why blue and white inhabit so many decorating icons: Think spatterware and spongeware; Blue Willow china and Wedgwood. And we never tire of the fabrics, from elegant toile de Jouy to crisp ticking to humble flour-sack stripes.

Antique Details Add Distinction
An absence of built-in cabinetry carries the theme of Old World charm into the bathroom. For storage, an armoire fronted with chicken wire lets contents breathe — a big plus in a humid room. A small sterling-silver Edwardian purse dangles from the door handle.
