I am a misunderstood genius...

For some reason I am thinking about the guest bathroom I have to get started on next week.

Mrs. Fab has got all the colors picked out, and the paint, and the accessories, etc.

She did not care for my vision of what it should look like. My artistic concept of how we should do it.

Are you ready for this?

Black and red.

Either black walls and floor and red tub, sink toilet, etc. or red walls and floor with black tub, sink, toilet, etc.

And maybe a urinal. Why do public restrooms have to be the only one with urinals?

Now how cool would that bathroom be? Please! You're speechless, aren't you? You are picturing it in all its magnificence, tell the truth.

So am I a visionary, or a pinhead?

I am assuming there is no middle ground.

Forget the urinal. Who wants to see a urinal cake everytime they come into your bathroom?! Get a bidet. They are all the craze in the latest, modernized bathrooms. Black and red are not my favorite colors and please don't get a red bathtub, lol. A red toilet would be cool. Maybe not. Have fun!

Visionary.

But not as far as decorating the home is concerned.

Go Mrs. Fab!

I have seen something like this. Red wall, black porcelain, brushed stainless faucets, handles, etc., with charcoal grey linens, recessed lighting. Done right, it can look very sharp. Not sure about going with the red porcelain, though. For one thing, it's harder to find.

But yeah, what TJ said...forget the urinal.

Or maybe, if you really want the urinal, you can disguise it somehow...or put it behind a secret hidden panel that only you know about. How cool would that be?

I would go with the red walls & the black fixtures. And my step-father has a urinal in his downstairs bathroom. He is my husband's hero for that move alone.

I've got to side with your better half on this one.

Although Mr. Cleaver would agree with you about the urinal. He has what is supposed to be his own personal bathroom in our house, but with a wife and four daughters you can probably guess that he has to share. He claims the only way he can keep us out of there is to take out the toilet and install a urinal.

He's wrong. We'd still go in there to fix our lipstick and shave our legs or whatever else it is we do in there to keep him from having his own personal bathroom.

The black walls with the red toilet/sink...but make sure you get a chrome urinal. Hell, I'd spend the night in there.

Actually, if you added some white, I think the black and red would be Fabulous :) Seriously. Just can't speak to the urinal question, tho'.

Black and red. Red and black.

Mr. Fabulous, you've never had to polish off water spots, have you?

Trust Mrs. Faboo on this one, dude.

Red fixtures? Think: REDRUM!

Black and Blue maybe, not the red. The Urinal would be excellent. I think every guy wants to have one but sadly, most will never have one.
I will say, the one good thing about a red toilet would be if you get a bad case of hemroids, you notice by checkin the bowl.

I think you just described the kind of bathroom Elvis died in.

Do you really want that?

I have no opinion on what your bathroom colors should be, but I have just peed myself laughing at all the comments, and especially your response to all the comments!

My daughter wants me to decorate her bathroom in all pink and black. I have to admit that I would kill for a pink toilet.
