Today I want to share with you my plan for a new master bathroom (yay!), and tell you all how this all came to be! But even more exciting is Floor & Decor is offering a $2500 gift card to one of my readers, so make sure you read all the way to the end for all the details on how to enter!
Today I’m sharing a friend’s master bathroom remodel that I thought you’d all enjoy seeing. This was a project we finished about a year and a half ago, but I never got a chance to go back and take photos until now!
This was one of the first projects that I helped to design, and it was a lot of fun to work on. A friend asked if I would help her in making some choices for her master bathroom remodel, and I was more than happy (and excited) to help. I mean, go shopping for things like mirrors, tubs, and marble with a friend? That’s like candy to me!
A subject I’ve talked about before is how essential I think it is to add art to your decor. In fact, I wrote a whole post on the importance of it, especially if you’re trying to get a more “collected” look. But something I really love, is finding art in unexpected places. Like the kitchen. And believe it or not, the bathroom. Art in the bathroom is one of my absolute favorite ways of using it, and I’m glad to see it’s a trend that is becoming more common!
Freestanding tubs. Is there a more romantic look for a bathroom?! I’m not sure why they disappeared, but for decades it has been the trend to build a bathtub/shower combo, or in the case of my master, no tub at all (horrible!) Whatever the reason, the stand alone tub is back and I for one am thrilled to see it return!
I love antique mirrors. In fact, they are one of my favorite antiques to own. And in a bathroom, they are particularly wonderful! Especially in an all-white or neutral bath.
It’s amazing how with all the hard surfaces, straight edges, and cool colors of a bathroom, introducing an antique mirror (usually gold) can add so much warmth and character. It keeps a white bathroom from looking too antiseptic and cold. The gold warms up the space, and the contrast of a chippy antique against all that crisp, white newness is fabulous!
I don’t know if you are aware, or maybe you are, but grey and gold is having a moment in the interior design world. What I like about the combo is the unexpectedness of it. Usually, until a couple of years ago, grey was usually combined with silver tones, even in clothing. But now, the contrast is so refreshing. Grey is a cool color, while the gold warms things up. I think it’s a natural reaction to the grey on grey trend where sometimes, in my opinion, it got so one dimensional that it appeared very cold. Either way, this trend is pretty! And now that brass is big as well (you can read my post about that here if you want to see some more beautiful inspiration!), I’ve seen grey with brass as well. Equally as pretty!
