It has been a minute since I’ve continued the house tour, so much has happened… I had no idea just how much this room would become my happy place. My ‘take a bath and decompress and actually never leave the house’ happy place. I had a shoot planned in April for the entire house (before that I only had the photos from our Domino feature) but obviously the shoot was cancelled while we were all on shelter in place orders. Before that, however, I did get a chance to shoot the kitchen for my new Semihandmade cabinet front launch in February with John and Maura Stoffer and while they were here they snagged a few shots of our principal bath. So while I still want to change out these mirrors (they are like 3″ too short and I can’t not see it. ha) at least I can share the beautiful space where I have been washing my hands again and again and trying to pretend I am on a really long vacation. Which of course gets quickly interrupted by two kids that need me the second I step foot in here. every. single. time. 🙂
When I first set out to design this space and turn it into our bathroom, I had a long wish list and a very small bathroom, but we made it all happen thanks to an unfinished “hot tub room” that was adjacent to the original bathroom. We removed a wall, finished the extra space and combined it with the original to become the bathroom of my dreams.
For the tile treatment we used the Clé Farmhouse Brick in matte white on the walls and the Natural Zellige on the floor. Read all about how we executed the wall tile treatment here. I designed the custom concrete vanity with an integrated sink and had it fabricated locally.
Aside from the Clé tile, the Allied Maker sconces, the custom vanity and the shower trim, everything in the room came from Wayfair. It can take some digging on that site because they have EVERYTHING, but I always come up with some unique pieces that I haven’t seen before like the bathtub. Gah, have I mentioned my love for that bathtub? Or the beautiful brass faucets. The toilet, the bamboo stool, the planter… all found online on Wayfair.
Now let’s do a little side by side before and after…
The finished view is from a slightly different angle but where the mirror on the right is in the after photo is where the glass door is in the “before” photo. We closed up that door which led to Clover’s bedroom and then removed the wall.
This “before” view is from the other side of that wall we removed, while standing in the old carpeted master bath, with a window into the unfinished room shown in the first photo.
The only thing that would make this en suite bathroom better is if it was sound proof. Right moms… right? ha
