Bathroom on the Brain

May 25, 2015

The start of our bathroom reno is approaching and although there's a lot of demo that has to happen first, followed by plumbing and electrical work, I'm ready to skip right to the fun part of picking out fixtures, tiles, a vanity, and all of the other design and decor related items.

I first shared some inspiration photos for our master bath back in January, since then we've given the design a lot more thought and have narrowed down some of our choices. If I were to describe the desired style or theme of the bathroom in a few words they would be simple, clean, serene, rustic, chic. So what does that look like? Well, I envision a bright and airy space with clean lines and not a lot of colour. I would then add character through brass light fixtures and some natural wood decor. 

As per my usual styling process, I've put together a mood board to help keep my vision clear. There's still a lot of specifics to decide, and things like delivery time, budget, supply and availability will all factor into the decision process as well.

 I love the brass pendant light fixture which I'm intending to hang over each sink; however consideration will definitely have to be given to whether or not they give off enough clear light (for doing everyday things like applying make up and shaving). If not, the addition of some sconces on either side of the mirror should do the trick. When planning your reno, don't forget to incorporate functionality. It may be pretty, but ask yourself, does it also make functional sense?

Another thing to keep in mind is that your metals don't have to match. Lots of metals go well together so there's no need to shy away from mixing and matching, just be sure to tie everything together in one way or another. 

In my recent research for the bathroom, I came across two photos that if you merged together, they would pretty accurately sum up my vision for the bathroom.

I'm hoping there will be some progress photos for the master bath soon! In the meantime, I'm working on some smaller projects around the house and turning my focus to our garden as well. Not going to lie, it's a little intimidating, but I'm looking forward to giving it a little TLC.
