Do you wish you could infuse some Parisian style into your home? With stunning fixtures from Kohler and our design tips, you can make every trip to la salle de bains feel like a luxurious weekend getaway to the City of Lights.

Romancing the tub

Look to the Paris of Hemingway with a striking freestanding bathtub for supreme relaxation. Go full vintage with an Iron Works claw-toothed or mix classic with chic with the Abrazo line.

Complete the look (and opulence) with a sleek floor-mounted Loure bath filler & handshower. It’s everything you need for a nice hot soak and to dream of cobblestone streets and hidden alleyways. Magnifique!

Some things ARE black and white

Black and white checkered floor tiles with a distinctive black Kathryn toilet create a timeless European feel that easily blends in with the contemporary American home.

Add classy art-deco inspired floor and ceiling trim and paint with a solid neutral tone such as beige, cream, taupe or ecru. Choose matte or semi-matte to minimize gloss.

Less is more

Many Parisian bathrooms opt to forego the massive vanity and cabinetry for a simple pedestal sink and baroque wrought-iron mirror.

For those who simply can’t go without the storage, the Leaf Vessel Sink perched atop a gorgeous slab of marble is an ideal replacement. Consider complementing this unique vessel basin with a wall-mounted tap such at the Antique Cross.

A million sparkling jewels

Augment focal lighting with a lavish crystal chandelier, ideally hung just slightly outside the foot end of the tub. Choose a model that is sufficiently ornate but reasonably easy to clean and maintain. Accompany this idyllic centerpiece with a crystal soap dispenser and crystal accessories. Voila!

Creative accessories

From framed black and white prints to frosted decorative mirrors, Monet-inspired oil paintings and more, let your inner artiste run wild with imaginative ways to fill your space with art and visual treasures.

Maintain an air of simplicity and minimalism by selecting a few powerful pieces and avoiding clutter. A refurbished antique chair in the corner can provide ambience, seating and a makeshift rack for your bathrobe.

The icing on the cake

Bath salts, potpourri, essential oils and other fragrances complete the “ooh la la” experience. Parfum has played an important role in French culture for centuries and adding aroma to your bath time is essential.

Flickering candles. A bottle of your favorite vin. Soothing French music.

Lay back. Relax. Enjoy La Vie en Rose in your new Parisian inspired bathroom. Don’t forget to lock the door and shut the world away.
