And BOOM just like that, the remodel is over. It was so weird — one day we had our cabinet guy here installing some transitions in the new doorways and we realized it was the very last thing that we needed done. We kind of looked around and shrugged and that was it. And then we high fived and danced all over the place because IT’S DONE!!! And today I finally get to share the new master bathroom with you. I’m so excited about this room. It’s exactly what I wanted it to be, which is a grownup mini-sanctuary, away from all of the kid stuff and totally free of clutter. It’s bright and happy but it also feels kind of like a tiny little spa. I love it. Here are the details!
Just like in the kids’ bathroom, we started with tile. We knew we wanted Fireclay Tile to add something special to the space and eventually we zeroed in on the Large Star and Cross pattern, in Tuolumne Meadows. It’s the perfect shade of yellow and impossible not to love. We played around with all kinds of different combinations, but this pattern and color just felt so right. It makes the room feel happy and a little bit eclectic without being crazy. So we designed everything else around the floor.
One thing that we weren’t so sure about from the start was a bathtub. We initially decided not to have a tub in the room, thinking that we wouldn’t use it because we don’t have time, or we could just use the kids’ tub if we wanted a bath, or whatever. And then one day I was like NO and we got the opposite of no tub, which is this magnificent beauty from Badeloft. It’s a freestanding stone resin tub and if I could sleep in it, I would. That’s how much I love this thing. It’s made of stone resin and holds onto heat really well, which makes for awesome baths. And it’s just a stunner to look at. (Not to mention we had four kids in it for a bath one night and still probably could have fit three more. It’s massive.)
The cabinetry is build in, but for the vanity we wanted the look of a freestanding piece so we ordered midcentury legs and had our cabinet maker install them. Worked like a charm! The color is Underwater, from BEHR. The pulls are from Home Depot and were a total steal. The counter is a quartz remnant that we found at our countertop place and we split it between this bath and the kids’ bath. (If you can find remnants for countertops it makes the materials cost so affordable!) Mirrors are here, sconces are here.
The decor isn’t quite done yet but I want to let it marinate for a bit before I start throwing things in the room just to fill it up! So maybe I’ll do a little update there when I have it totally complete. We knew for sure we wanted that beautiful Chasing Paper Waves print over the tub, and it fits so perfectly. Right now the rest of the room is missing just a liiiiitle touch of something fun but I haven’t quite figured out what yet. But even with completely bare walls this room would be a joy to be in, so there’s no problem taking some time. I’m just so pumped to have a master bathroom at all! Hope you love the new space. Stay tuned for the bedroom reveal soon! xoxo
