Inspiring Interiors

Hemingway’s other bathrooms (Key West & Cuba).

Apparently Ernest Hemingway had the best taste ever in bathrooms. Here’s another one from his home in Key West, and one from his Cuban estate (in which he recorded his daily weight on the wall beside the scale). Look at that shower curtain!

    i do believe that if i were to weigh myself every morning there would be a drastic change, especially if it were there for all to see.

    that shower curtain is wonderful, i love the fluting on the bottom of the toilet.

    ahhhh beauty! E.H. had extraordinary taste – in more than bathrooms, so many of his rooms are just perfection. (gosh photo one is reeeeeeally perfect)

    have you seen robert polidori’s ‘havana’? since moving to new orleans my all-things-havana obsession has been reignited and that book has been our number one source of inspiration in this house.

    I love that soft watery aqua wall colour for bathrooms — it seems so very appropriate.

    It is so beautiful! His ex wife, Martha Gellhorn may have had something to do with this….
    (I recommend reading her autobiography)
