This Accessory Makes Claw-Foot Tubs Look as Good as They Make Us Feel

Yep, it's official: this bathroom shared by Home Beautiful is perfect. What makes it so great? For starters, a traditional claw-footed tub is given a chic modern update with the trendy black hue that's taking over bathrooms far and wide. But the heavy color is kept from weighing down the design thanks to a clean, minimal aesthetic with a few pops of vibrant color. The choice of a light wood trim around the window and shelving further softens the tub's hard edge, while warmly reflecting the abundance of light pouring through the panes. And while we like that a few sprays of greenery complement those natural elements with texture and height, it's that round mirror overhead that really gives the room an upscale air. Its circular finish nods to the smooth features of the tub and nearby bucket, while acting as a simple yet functional art piece that doesn't need much else to look good.

Reflect your bathroom's style with a gorgeous mirror of your own.
