Blue. Tiles by Original Style and a 19th-century painted wrought-iron washbasin in this Bordeaux, France, bathroom designed by Michael Coorengel and Jean-Pierre Calvagrac. Tour the entire home.

Purple. Linda Gottlieb’s bathroom, with its soft-plum Venetian-plaster walls by Orazio De Gennaro Studio, makes for a sanctuary-like space off the master suite she shares with husband Robert Tessler—who credits their marriage’s success to the one bed, two bath approach. Taking advantage of the room’s natural light, designer Lichten Craig outfitted the window with lightweight fabric curtains and installed a mirrored bath and cabinets.

Indigo. Architect Steven Learner drew inspiration from the indigo tiles that line traditional Turkish hammams for the open shower in his downtown Manhattan apartment. Learner sheathed his master bath in shiny subway tiles of a deep cobalt, which he offset with a pure-white tub.

Red Stripes. In the New York City apartment shared by Tom Bezucha and Margaret “Sam” Hamilton, a lively red-and-white-striped shower curtain and striped terry towels make a brilliant statement in a bathroom.

Orange. In the children’s bath of her Manhattan townhouse, jewelry designer Temple St. Clair Carr chose a fiery orange for one of the walls; the sink and faucets are by Kohler, and Meltemi’s Oval sconces are from Illuminating Experiences.

Jade Green. In Mehall Griffey and Jerry Maggi's apartment, the walls and floor of the master bath are covered in Bisazza tiles, the French mirror is 1950s, and the custom sink was handmade by Sicilian craftsmen; the fittings are by Hansgrohe, and the ceiling is covered in gold leaf.

Color Grid. At designer Jamie Drake’s New York apartment, the powder room’s exuberant grid of colors pays tribute to the 1960s artist Gene Davis, echoing the palette of his striped silk screens. The vivid squares were painted by Moira Kelly, and the artwork is by Lucio Fontana.
