January: A Cool Craftsman-Style Bathroom
West Coast sanctuary was revived with a coat of soft, watery blue paint on the original vanity that picks up the patchwork floor tile. Box-panelled walls are a classic Craftsman touch.
February: A Striking Urban Bathroom
The floor in bathroom of Toronto retailer Denise Zidel deserves a second look. Show-stopping porcelain floor tile — laid in a
mismatching pattern — is a credible stand-in for marble and adds plenty of visual interest underfoot.

March: A Bohemian City Bathroom
A cushy rug, artisanal carved stool and woven baskets resemble Moroccan market finds in this
stylish Toronto bathroom by Montana Burnett. A black and gold pendant over the bathtub was repainted white to tone down its presence, resulting in a serene space with a global vibe.
April: A Serene New-Build Ensuite
French-style new-build in Toronto, glass walls allow natural light from the large window to stream into the shower, while the bright palette makes the most of all that sunshine. Early mornings are no match for this calming oasis.
May: A Nautical Guest Bathroom
The bracing blue hue of the vanity in this
Connecticut home‘s bathroom complements the warm-toned mirror trim, hardware and faucets, to fresh effect.
June: A Rustic Country Bathroom
In designer Melody Duron’s
charming pastoral cabin, the focal point of the principal bathroom is a streamlined freestanding oval tub that affords a calming view of the swaying treetops. A spiky pendant highlights the ceiling’s soaring height.
July: A Natural Cottage Bathroom
sleek family cottage in Muskoka, the marble tile in the light-filled bathroom feels like a continuation of the rocky terrain outside, while a wood vanity is a natural complement to the indoor-outdoor feel.
August: A Sculptural Lake House Bathroom
Dramatically-veined marble slabs and a generous trough sink are functional additions in this polished Muskoka lake house bathroom. Sculptural sconces are mounted directly on the mirror for a seamless effect.
September: A Romantic Parisian Bathroom
Jackie Kai Ellis slips into this clawfoot tub for a soak in her
Paris apartment every afternoon, propping open the lace-covered windows and drinking in the Gallic charm of this fairytale city.
October: A Breezy Palm Beach Bathroom
This landmark home dates back to the glory days of Palm Beach architecture, and reflects architect Addison Mizner’s signature mix of Venetian, Spanish and southern styles. In the bathroom, a sleek metallic floor tile, floating vanity and sculptural tub convey a modern freshness.
November: An English-Inspired Bathroom
Georgian heritage home of interior and floral designer Cynthia Zamaria, a romantic bevelled-glass mirror puts a decorative spin on a classic bathroom scheme of glossy white subway tile and polished nickel fixtures.
December: A Spa-like Ensuite
A well-placed soaker tub is situated to best capture the lush view in this Toronto bathroom. A roomy walk-in shower — clad in marble — houses a matching bench for visual flow and ample accessibility.
