Bathroom art

I love how Vicente Wolf hung this Tina Barney photo over his bathtub. "They're looking at me, I'm looking at them," he says. Cheeky!

Love it! My nana once put a photo of her sister in her bathroom because she thought it'd be funny, haha. There is something about having eyes on you in that room... cheeky, indeed!

Cassandra Marie said...

That tub is gorgeous!

Bathroom art always makes me laugh sometimes! Either go classic or be funny like this!! hehe. I love that bathtub too!! =)

laynemarie said...

I love it! I have some photos and prints that are just PERFECT for my bathrooms but I'm scared to hang them because of the humidity/steam factor. So my bathroom walls are painted amazing colors, but are still bare. :(

Joanna Goddard said...

yeah, laynemarie, it's a tough call! we have some of our favorite art in our bathroom and luckily it seems ok so far.

My roommate and I have found waterproof ways to include art in our bathroom - Blik makes really unique designs that don't peel off in steam (also they're quite different than standard framed art work), and we actually have old post cards from Spain (both of us have ties there) which we framed in cheap frames from Target (Le Tarjj if you will) and they do a great job of keeping our sentimental pieces in great shape (plus it makes the bathroom like a cultural experience!)

LOVE the bathtub. The photo, however, would freak me out. It's bad enough that my dog insists on being in the bathroom every time I shower, I don't need people staring at me, too. ;-)

reckless daughter said...

I agree, I'll take the bathtub. the photo creeps me out a little :)

not to mention how butt-kicking that bathtub is!

Veronica Tutundjian said...

I love large photographs framed like this, without matting. Somehow I feel more a part of the image.

Michele said...

That is just too funny. I think I would spend my bath laughing out loud! How delightfully awkward! ahaha!

Giulia said...

I do like it but I have a Dali print of a woman looking out a window with her behind to me. lol The plumber loves it & wanted the name. It's framed well & it's only a print but otherwise, I think I'd keep really good stuff out of a bath. I have a window & so it stays pretty dry in there...

Yes, I'll take the copper bath (& the servants to go with it...a lot of cleaning)

Anna Walker said...

Tina Barney spoke at my school last year. I think her compositions and the patterns/colors that are in her photos are fantastic. I love the funky and fun energy the photo brings to such an elegant room.
p.s I really enjoy your blog joanna, thanks!

Lulu said...

i love love love art in a bathroom. but my bathroom is so tiny that i get worried about the steam ruining things! so i stick to super cheap prints or copies of art that i like. that way when they shrivel up i don't feel bad about it haha

Tina Barney is one of my favourite photographers. Sundance were showing a documentary about her work last year when she was travelling througout Europe snapping pics of various European aristos and BoBos. I still have it in DVR -- great.

The more I see and hear of Vicente, the more I like his work!

Vicente Wolf said...

Joanna - I am absolutely honored that you thought to include my bathroom on your delightful blog! (I'm a fan)

i've always been a fan of bathroom art.
grande with an ornate, rich frame -- love it!
it gives a little bit of "over-the-top" to one of the most overlooked rooms (decor-wise) in the house.

I think it is a great idea to put an art pieces on bathroom. That will make a restroom look very different and amazing. I love the bathroom in that photo.
