An all neutral color palette looks beautiful in a log home. The tile on the walk-in shower ties the golden brown color of the logs in with the stone floor. Extra storage is provided by a distressed dresser and a Victorian coat rack hanging on the wall. The open ceiling allows for ventilation.

If you have a place for storage other than a traditional vanity, this modern take on a vintage sink would be a great choice. The glass is translucent, adds a touch of color, and is easy to maintain. The walk-in shower has a luxurious shower head and sprays. The extra-wide mirror over the double sinks is convenient and mimics the horizontal log walls.

The gorgeous granite countertop blends with the logs and flooring. The black painted vanity and tub surround give the room its own style. note the vintage-style glass knobs on the vanity, which add a touch of sparkle.

The tile work in this shower is a work of art. The colors in the tile evoke everything from a pine forest to fall leaves to a crisp blue sky. Mixing the blues and greens of the lower subway tile with the smaller multicolored field tile was a bold choice that creates a fascinating focal point in the bathroom. The copper shower fixture adds a vintage touch.

The metallic copper finish on the walls of this master bathroom is a perfect match for the undermounted hammered copper sinks. The lights over the vanity are disguised by a wood cornice that complements the wood of the vanity. Another texture is introduced with the granite countertop.

Floor-to-ceiling tile from Oceanside Glasstile ( graces this contemporary bathroom. Using a simple gray tile on most of the walls makes the spectacular pattern of green glass in the shower stand out all the more. Reserving a special tile for a key spot can keep costs reasonable without sacrificing beauty.
