not so mellow, huh? to put it simply, this bathroom is intensely striking (in a very good way). the thin black contemporary moulding that frames each wall adds to this bathroom's contemporary parisian style. the claw foot bathtub was painted black, but maintains a frame to itself with the white porcelain interior and claw feet. i also love the idea of framing a photo of fabric that is the same color as the paint on the wall. this may only work with bold colors. and tell me the footstool isn't the most precious added detail.
