Things have been a whirlwind lately, but I’m excited to take a quick break to share a recent project with you! I participated in a local designer’s show house that benefits music education for children and I can finally begin sharing the results. The first space I would like to share is the hall bath:
Keep in mind all of the show house rooms I’m going to share are apart of a very large historic home; therefore, we tried to keep the integrity of the home in mind when designing each space. The hall bath needed A TON of attention. Take a peek at the before.
This funky tile was damaged and required a complete demo. We removed everything in the bathroom, excluding the bathtub and the medicine cabinet. If you are on the fence about having an old or weird colored tub refinished- DO IT! It is worth every single penny. It turned out looking brand new and matched our oversized subway tile perfectly. If you’d like to see process photos of the reno, visit my Instagram.
The high-contrast patterned floor tile is definitely the statement in this bathroom; it’s my favorite aspect of the space. The white subway tile, on the other hand, is classic and remains true to the time period of the home.
Check out the original medicine chest we were able to salvage! I scrubbed this baby with a toothbrush for an hour and it looks as good as new. It has so much charm and I love the white lacquered surface and hardware. It even has the perfect little nook to house and display toiletries.
Wondering about that amazing large landscape oil painting? It’s another vintage find. The warm tones really bring this bright and sunny bath to life, while totally fitting the vibe of the house.
Above, you’ll catch a tiny glimpse of custom plantation shutters on the left. This is a fantastic solution to bathroom window treatments. They’re easy to clean, provide privacy, and can be opened and closed as needed for natural light.
What’s your favorite aspect of this newly renovated bathroom? You already know I’m digging the floor tile. The homeowners were ecstatic about the refinished tub and new plumbing fixtures (ahem! pedestal sink, I’m looking at you).
