From Leak to Retreat

Sometimes the universe knows our desires. And as it turns out I'm not the only one in the world who desired of a new master bath that came to fruition because of a leak. It's definitely not the easiest solution but we're looking on the bright side here people. 

This master bath was ready for a fresh contemporary look. The extra wall disguising the toilet and varied height on the vanity top made the space feel choppy and small. The dark counters and shades of tile all made the space feel dark. Here's a sneak peak at the what the bathroom looked like before rejuvenating it.

Modern, clean, calming and not too cold is what we were aiming for in this revamped master bath. White cabinets were a definite NO so I chose a stained hickory for the custom cabinets. The blend of warm and cool coloring in the stain had me at hello and perfectly complimented its heavy grain. I kept the palette on the warm side of neutral with the tile selections and made sure the space still felt crisp with a white hex floor tile in the shower and a white quartz counter on the vanity. 

A deep blue/green glass mosaic niche the length of the shower makes the space feel modern and open, not to mention functional. This color is brought out in the towel selection and again in the beautiful watercolor painting by Kelly Ventura. With all of the adjustments to the floor plan and new design the space now feels open and bright, but still has a welcoming warmth that relaxes the soul at the end of a long day. 


I am loving the warmer color palette, it's such a nice change from all of the grey and white (which I still love... clearly, see my own recent bathroom renovation). How about you, are you open to taking a chance on something new or would you rather go with what you know?!
