Tips To Achieve the Right Atmosphere:

An unconventional take on the classic. 
Add a unique feature, but keep it simple. This is a great opportunity to experiment with "foot" choices. 

Think fancy luxury fit for a king and queen. This is where you embrace the original purpose of the clawfoot tub. This style is all about the details. Think about a silver or gold painted tub. Add a chandelier, and make sure to have a fancy mirror. Possibly add a fur rug, but definitely have marble flooring. This could also be the perfect atmosphere for a slipper tub. 

Vintage 19th Century 
Think about adding a curtain around your tub to add a romatic feel. Add minimal gold fixtures, and tile flooring. A classic porcelain white tub is the way to go. 

Funky Fun 
Make your tub a bright color, or add a pattern to your tub. This is a playful unique take on a classic. 

Asian Infused 
This style can be done in different ways, but it is a very calming choice. Think of an oriental influence, or imagine a Buddhist temple for inspiration. You can choose more neutral colors or add jade (a special color that symbolizes wealth, wisdom, and power). 

Rustic Farmhouse
Add natural wood, stones, and neutral colors. You can choose to do a wall gallery of mirrors that gives a country-chic feel. There are many directions you can go with this style. You can choose to go completely nature infused, or you can add subtle eclectic touches that provide a more country-chic ambiance. This is a great opportunity to choose a copper tub!
