Master Bath with Vintage Flair

In phase one of our home remodel, it was probably the master bathroom that underwent the biggest transformation. When we bought the home, we simply felt lucky to have a master bath (and a walk-in closet) in a home of this era. They were part of the series of unfortunate additions that had been added to the 1940s home through the years. In the bathroom’s case, it meant a large, choppy room dominated by a blush pink jetted tub! Seriously.

In our remodel, we took the bathroom down to studs, opened it up and raised the ceiling. This gave us a clean slate to create a modern space with vintage flair! I had so much fun choosing fixtures, finishes and tile and designing the custom cabinets and tile work.

The ledge behind the pedestal tub serves dual purposes. It’s a place to set your glass of wine while you soak (or – if you live in the real world – your razor & soap, or your child’s bath time Lego collection). It’s also a place to hide you plumbing! Sneaky.

Hex-dot tile, white bead board, and a stunning pedestal tub pay homage to the home’s era, while custom built-ins provide plenty of needed storage. There’s nothing better than being able to design your own custom cabinetry to fit your space. Every inch was maximized for ultimate storage!

And I just love bold, interesting tile! Maybe someday I’ll grow tired of this colorful Mediterranean tile, but until then, I get an extra dose of bliss each time I step into our shower!
