Here is another informative and juicy post from my appropriately named Client Freakin’ Fabulous. This time around I’m showing you some of the thought process that went into renovating their guest bathroom.
1 // I wanted to do something kinda cool in this cute little space. One of the first things that came to mind when we were pulling this baby together was adding a little visual interest to the floors to draw your eye away from the small space. PLUS having rad floors scores you double points when you can provide your guests with a rad floor for them to take a pic of their feet on for social media! I blame @ihavethisthingwithfloors !! HA!
2 // Add storage!! Ya see….it was pretty little, and in my opinion if a bathroom is little, you really need to get creative with both storage, AND making it interesting with fixtures etc. so that it doesn’t just end up looking like an updated boring bathroom when your all done. We created this unique floating vanity out of walnut and added leather pulls for interest…and a touch of manly, masculine vibes.
3// To lighten up the room I painted the walls with Dunn Edwards white and changed the shower tile to a simple subway to keep everything bright and clean-looking. Instead of going with basic “silver” shower fixtures, we went with a matte black finish on all the shower trim and shower glass pulls. It was a lot more sleek and fit in with the whole vibe of the house.
4 // We didn’t stop at the matte black though… Just a touch of brass was added with their faucet and some fun pendants to bring back elements of the kitchen and the rest of the house.. I love the look of it contrasted with the dark vanity and wood built out.
5 // Instead of just mounting a mirror, I wanted to do something a little more unique. We created a shelf out of walnut above the sink that would house the mirror and allow for a fancy Aesop soap and a cactus…or something a little less glamorous…like a curling iron?!
