If you've ever wondered how to incorporate the warmth of rustic elements into a contemporary design, take note of this bathroom by Cottages & Gardens. Natural wood acts as the defining feature of the space — which is boldly offset by modern detailing — and floor-to-ceiling white gives it the proper backdrop to shine. The double vanity is clearly the attention-stealer of this shot, and its clean lines complement those in the medicine cabinets above and shelving nearby. The unconventional round vanities are also a clever tip to the circular lights overhead, while the smooth white bathtub's raven fixture sets that moody hue beneath a coordinating window treatment. And don't forget to notice that shelf on the tub, either, which draws on that natural wood touch for a cohesive look. While we also like that the small basket next to the vanity showcases the room's palette on such a cute design, it's those killer sinks that make this homespun industrial look really work. They are a striking addition to an aesthetic that's hopelessly chic.
