It’s hard to make peace with a dated bathroom. If yours is looking a little tired and a remodel is not in the cards anytime soon, consider springing for a few quick fixes to add a little modernity at home.  We were inspired by this simple but sophisticated black urban bath designed by The Brooklyn Home Company , which reminded us that the littlest details often can make the biggest difference. We sourced five elements for recreating the look: Above: The black paneling in our inspiration bath complements the white walls and black moulding in the rest of the apartment.

Above: Relegate grungy towels to the cleaning bin and opt for a  Black & White Stripe Towel  instead; 100 percent linen, this one is handmade in Boston by design studio Rennes; $16 for a 17-by-26.5-inch towel. Above:  Santa Maria Novella Potpourri  is the (un)official Remodelista room fragrance of choice; made from 100-percent organic herbs and flowers grown in the hills around Florence; $35 for a 3.5-ounce bag. Above: Upgrade your hand soap with Savon de Marseille  in olive lavender from La Compagnie de Provence of France; $26 on Amazon. Above: This Portuguese  Cotton Hand-Knotted Mat  is woven and has a  pattern created by knots; machine washable, it's $60 for a 19-by-41-inch mat at Bitters Co. in Seattle.

The white-dipped  Gigantic Family-Size Serving Bowl  in beech wood is $215 from Wind & Willow Home.
