The right bathroom for you

ever since middle school, i've had a growing interest in interior architecture and design, to the extent that i believed i was going to become the next big thing - coffee table books and all. very cute.

i decided to attend my first summer course in architectural design at new york's pratt institute when i was 16. i'm glad i attended it, because what i did find was that i'd rather wait tables at johnny rockets, and that i would never again walk alone in brooklyn. long story short, it involved me, two of my friends and a stranger who threatened to steal me if we didn't give him a dollar. umm.. is that all i'm worth?

anyway, i realized shortly after, that i was always more interested in working with the space once it was already designed. also, xacto knives and cardboard paper? not my thing. i do however have utmost respect for those who love it.

over the years i've slowly created a mental scrapbook of ideas. yes yes, i know, now there's pinterest. i should probably hop onto that bandwagon, but for now i've added some bathroom ideas below that caught my eye. i'm ALWAYS intrigued by bathrooms, more so than the actual bedroom. it's a very important room. in my perfect world i can afford any bathroom i want. so... yeah. 
space is key. this one might be a bit too large though, i'm a little intimidated.
another angle. i really love the contrast of the purple and white. very clean.
who would say no to this? if i lived by the water this wouldn't be such a bad idea. 
interesting. you'd probably have to shower like a rockstar though... in case anyone's watching.
 so much space i can do a cartwheel!! that should be the requirement, "is there enough space for a cartwheel and perhaps a round-off on a really good day? great."
 i love the fireplace. also the old-fashioned bathtub, stunning. 
more masculine. doesn't really look like a bathroom though does it. i prefer white to black.
 very zen. the candles are a must. i wouldn't necessarily need the stones in the middle. i'm too clumsy and prefer not to turn the lights on if i need to make a visit halfway through my sleep. not down for injuries.
 a bathtub and a standing shower are both a must. i love this style of overhead shower. the color is also pretty amazing.
 is that a pool?! this ones elegant but the bathtub is huge and i don't take THAT many baths. could be the angle but it looks like a whole load of wasted water from here. also i need more space. yes, need.
 love the style. although i don't think i'd want it; it's more of a guest bathroom. something about it says, don't use me, just look at me being cute, smile then leave and close the door behind you thank you.
the layout is not bad, i'd change the colors. 
 oversized sauna? i feel trapped just looking at it.  way too dark.
what's going on in here, is it a bathroom or a garden? too much clutter, i feel like there are hidden animals and insects that are camera shy.
great standing shower! not spacious enough. 

at least i've narrowed down my requirements to:
- cartwheel friendly
- clean and playful colors
- old-fashioned tub
- modern standing shower
- fireplace
- candles
- lots of mirrors
- surround sound
- lots of natural light
