My Master Bath Make-Over

Happy Spring! Wondering what I've been up to lately? Besides celebrating our little one's first birthday, entertaining out-of-town guests (miss you already Mom), and juggling some design classes on top of all of that, we gave our master bathroom a much needed make-over.

Here she is in all of her shiny, new White Carrara glory! We re-used the existing vanity and replaced the solid surface top with marble. Installed new polished nickel wall sconces and faucet.

The old 6"x6" ceramic tiles were torn out and replaced with 2"x2" Carrera marble tiles.

Again, the same 6"x6" tiles in the shower were replaced with crisp white subway tile installed in a herringbone pattern.

The faucet is by Rohl.

The mirror is from Ballard, the sconces are from Circa Lighting and the drawer knobs are from Restoration Hardware. The walls are the same pale blue color that is on our bedroom ceiling, BM Seafoam.

I'm still waiting on a new roman shade to be installed on the window...

...in this lovely Allegra Hicks printed linen.

Here is a sad little reminder of what the space used to look like. Polished brass fixtures, no place to hang a towel (seriously there were no towel rods) and all of that basic white ceramic tile. Much better, no?

Wow! I love it. Did the floor tiles (2x2) come in sheets??? Otherwise that would be one hell of a tile job! The mirror is stunning. xoxo

Teresa - I just found your blog (thanks to a list of design blogs put out by Desire to Inspire on Easter weekend) and I love it!! I've spent the last hour+ just looking at old posts. I also live in Connecticut, so it's fun to see photos such as your in-laws' place with the Sound in view - so pretty! This bathroom make-over is fantastic. I'm adding the mirror and faucet to my "inspiration folder!"

Centsational Girl said...

Teresa, this is stunning ! I simply adore all of your choices, especially that mirror and that faucet, I could die ! Absolutely gorgeous !

It looks so beautiful!

Do you know what size (width) your vanity is? I like that it has three drawers on each side.

So pretty! The floor tile is great.

I was honored when my dad asked me to help him renovate their bathroom. My parent's bathroom is the biggest in the house. Our project is to keep some of the original pieces like the tub and my mom's chest drawers. I accompanied my dad to our local store known for its quality tiles and flooring (Sarasota)We ordered white vinyl tiles for the walls and flooring. We wanted the bathroom to look fresh and invigorating. When they delivered the (Sarasota) tiles- we were completely satisfied.

The wall tiles in your master bath are adorable and the mirror is lovely. Thanks for sharing your design ideas!
