5 Bathroom Ideas to Steal From Hollywood's Coolest It Girls—and How to Shop Them
If there's one thing we've learned from the myriad of celebrity homes we've had the privilege of shooting for MyDomaine Australia, it's that when it comes to style, some people are just born with it. Case in point: Lauren Conrad's former Cali-cool home in the Pacific Palisades. It's an undeniable master class in swoon-worthy, texture-rich bohemia, with that timeless glamour and modern femininity we've come to expect from the A-lister.
However, Conrad's not the only one. We pretty much want to steal the bedrooms, dining rooms, and living rooms of all our favourite It girls—oh, and we definitely want to raid their closets, too. But if there's one room we want to mimic above all else, it's the bathroom. While the kitchen will always be the hero of the home, the powder room is where we really take a load off, expunge the daily stresses, and soak the senses, both literally and figuratively. So we compiled five of our all-time favourite celebrity bathrooms along with the key pieces to get the look at home—and all of them have one thing in common. Can you guess? It's bound to assuage your Instagram envy.
Dial Up the It Factor
When you have a crazy-busy schedule like actress and musician Julianne Hough's, you need a stylish sanctuary to come home to. That's exactly what she did with her bathroom. It's earthy and raw, turning on Mother Nature's charm with a floor-to-ceiling window that floods the room with sunlight. In fact, this natural palette runs throughout her entire home. "Muted, earthy greens, browns, blues and some yellows feel grounded and protective," she told Better Homes & Gardens. "But I also love pops of colour. They symbolise pure joy."
Lauren Conrad's bathroom is a traditional-modern fusion. It strikes a balance between classic and contemporary with ease, and we're pretty sure most of you reading this wouldn't pass up an opportunity to have this freestanding-tub situation in your own home. We love the all-white look balanced out with natural light and warm timber details. The textured Little Market throw and the vintage Turkish rug really add a hint of boho-chic flair. You simply must check out the full tour of her Cali-cool home for more interior inspiration.
Decorate With Style
It's hard to imagine a New York city loft could ever be transformed into a space fit for a family of four, but that's exactly what design firm Ashe + Leandro did when they approached the home interior of actress Naomi Watts, featured in Architectural Digest. The two-time Oscar nominee shared the space with former husband Liev Schreiber and their two sons, 8-year-old Alexander and 7-year-old Samuel, so it needed to have that fusion of fashion and function. The end result is an inviting family oasis complete with a master bathroom and a freestanding tub we all want to soak away the hours in. We love the glam gold touches and penny-tiled floor.
Make it Glam
We all love her style in general, so it's not surprising that the television personality's superior taste extends into her house, too. When InStyle toured her Benedict Canyon home, we fell head over heels for her laid-back cool design with a hint of bohemian flair. It has that elevated nomadic vibe that comes from traversing the globe. It's these subtle jet-setting sentiments that truly make this bathroom feel like home.
Add Some Boho Flair
We're not the only ones who favour the bathroom as the top spot in the house. Erin Foster cherishes her master bathroom complete with a freestanding clawfoot bathtub. "I've never had a nice bathroom before," she told MyDomaine Australia. "The truth is I just couldn't afford anything nicer, so I lived in a dump for 10 years, and I waited until the very last minute to finally let myself have beautiful things. Now when I shower and look around, I literally smile because I'm just so happy with myself in this beautiful bathroom. I'm just in heaven. Sitting in there, washing my hair, and smiling." We love how she styled the bleached-out space with a pop of colour via the fuschia African juju hat. In fact, her entire home tour has similar pops of colour to brighten your day.
