Home Decor, Master Bath Make-over

I’ve been helping out with Baby Boy since his daycare doesn’t begin for a few more weeks,  and DD’s maternity leave is up

I asked her if I could share her master bath redo…

I love spending time in her house, it’s full of light and the shades of gray decor is so serene and relaxing…

if you DONT think about that  Shades of Gray                ^^’

I have had the fun, and pleasure, of helping decorate a few spots…

The master suite is at the end of the hall, come on, let me show you


They have plantation shutters on most of the windows in their house


She decorated the master bedroom, which features a ebony wood king bed and chunky modern black lamps


The bath entrance is to the left of the dresser across from the bed


Come on in~


Wait!  To really appreciate this space you’ve got to see the before photos


Be warned the before photos of this bath are pretty shocking!



The original bath was tiny, about 5′ x 7′ decked out in gorgeous 1960 vintage tiles~  😱


On the upside, there was a short passage between the bedroom and bath with a decent walk in closet and a linen closet


The linen closet was removed, opening up the space


A closet in the hall that backed up to the original bath was eliminated to gain more space

The resulting bathroom is L shaped, with two vanities, a tile shower and a storage bench


“Her” vanity is where the linen closet used to be, and is next to a built in storage bench topped with the same quartz as the vanity

This shelf/cabinet provides shelves for storage and valuable extra counter space or a place to sit and tie your shoes




The walls behind the vessel sinks feature 1″ x 1,” mixed stone and glass, square tiles, running from the counter tops to the ceiling


The tiles are a mix of natural stone, mercury glass and glass.  Some of the tiles are reflective, brightening the space

The dramatic vertical expanse of tile also makes the room feel larger


The sides of the square tiles are finished with narrow stone bull nose pieces, matching the stones of the square tiles


“His” vanity is in the L part of the room next to the shower


The vanities feature drawers and a cabinet for storage and toiletries


The shower features a built in seat and the tile is the same as the tile on the bathroom floor

It looks like the floor just flows up the walls


The floor tiles are laid on the diagonal, which is a great trick for making a space seem wider


The original master closet is across from the “Her” vanity and is a surprisingly decent size so no changes were made there



My son’s company, Magic City Tile,  did the remodeling work, and transformed this beast into a beauty!

There’s another 1960’s bathroom in this house that needs a face lift- it’s full of slime lime green tile– so I can’t wait to get started on that one!


Next up, though, is this space over the love seat in the living room


The Breaking Waves painting in the foyer is visible from here so I have to paint something that won’t fight with that

Any suggestions?


Thanks for touring with me today~

    Very nice renovation! I especially love the sink, the tile that goes up the wall, and a little tiny detail that I had never thought of…having a pretty little clock on the counter so that you know if you’re running late or not! I am going to have to do that now, because I’m always rushing and wondering if I’m on time, and I usually have time to spare. That stress could be avoided simply by having a pretty little clock in the room with me! Makes me feel kind of ignorant for not figuring that out on my own! Are those paintings pieces of original Jenna artwork? I’m loving the gray colors, too!

    • Thanks Judy! I keep a little clock on my vanity that is set 5 min fast, because I’m always needing an extra 5 🙂 Yes, the paintings are mine. Hope you are having a treasure filled weekend! >
