Conventional wisdom dictates white on wainscoting and colour above, but Stella flipped that combination by painting the trim in her master bathroom a (custom-blended) mossy green and the upper walls ivory. Along the way, she gained a cozy corner that seems to hug her vintage tub. "I wanted to create a sense of intimacy," she explains, "and still make the height of the room feel as if it goes on forever." Stella bought the towel-and-robe rack at Restoration Hardware.

Bright Idea: Who says a bathroom mirror has to be all business? Certainly not this beveled beauty.
