An Expert Shares the One Thing Every White Bathroom Needs

Sacha Strebe

We’ve professed our love numerous times for the all-white kitchen and swooned over many rooms where the ivory hue rules, but the bathroom is where our adoration for the chalky colour scheme truly lies—even our Instagram fans agree. A white bathroom sets our stylish hearts aflutter every time we see one. They scream classic, clean, and cool, but you don’t want them to be too cold. So how do you add warmth to a colorless space?

Barbara Sallick, co-founder and senior vice president of design at Waterworks and author of The Perfect Bath, is often referred to as the "queen of white," and she says the white bathroom has much in common with the classic LBD. "My little black dress is a perfect fit," she told MyDomaine. "It's made of an elegant lightweight wool of the highest quality, the inside seams are beautifully finished, and its style and length are appropriate for a woman of my age. And with the mere change of a necklace or earrings, it can go from the office to dinner. A timeless white bath has the same approach."

We tapped the lifelong design devotee to share her expert tips for decorating a stylish bleached-out bathroom, along with her number one rule.
