Unusual Decor: Bicycle Vanity
Some homeowners like things a little out of the ordinary. This homeowner is clearly a bicycle aficionado (at least I hope so) as the defining characteristic of this bathroom is that a bicycle has been re-purposed to act as the vanity.
The bicycle seat has been replaced with a countertop on which the vessel sink sits and the bicycle basket is used to hold the hand towels.
Other than that this is a fairly standard bathroom with a light/dark color contrast that is very pleasing to the eye.
The floor is created with small alternating and contrasting black and white square tiles while the lower walls are white subway tiles with the top course alternating white and dark brown to provide a border effect that isn’t sharp (as it would be if every top tile was brown).
The window frme, the mirror frame and dark light fixtures complete the color contrast.
Why this works?
For some of you, it doesn’t. Not the color contrast, but the use of the bicycle. Keeping your bathroom clean is hard enough without all those surfaces on which dust will accumulate. I think I would want to clean the bicycle fixture with a can of compressed air.
Other than the, the color contrast is very pleasing as dark/light contrasts usually are. The use of relatively few bits of dark (except for the floor which is half and half) accentuates the dark as the foreground against the white background. The upper parts of the walls being painted a similar white to the subway tiles helps draw the eye towards the dark accent pieces for a very pleasing effect.
