10 Beautiful Bathrooms with Earth Elements

Earth elements are great to use in design because they bring a lot of warmth and character to a space. This is especially true in a bathroom. Elements like stone, wood, and fire bring a spa-like essence that can be translated into many styles, including rustic, modern, and traditional.

If you want to make a statement in your bathroom, any one of these elements will help achieve that. You can also do a mixture of them to create something really unique. Your options are endless, especially with all the different options within each element: all the different types of stone, the many finishes for wood, and all the styles for a fireplace.

Here are 10 beautiful bathrooms that incorporated earth elements to create a stunning space.

10 Dark and Decadent Dining Rooms

Decorating a dining room offers a great opportunity to do something a little different from the rest of your decor. Giving it its own personality will create more of an experience when you dine and entertain in it. One simple but effective way to make your dining room unique is to go dark.

Dark dining rooms have an elegant, dramatic appeal about them that suits the mood of the space. It’s the perfect look for intimate dinner parties. You can go all dark or take advantage of contrast, such as with black and white, for an even more dramatic look.

Here are 10 dark dining room ideas to give you some inspiration.
