Design Files | Master Bathroom Reveal

Jan 12, 2016

Happy 2016 everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. Mine was great! It was exactly the break I needed to rejuvenate myself.

I love the New Year. I completely jump on the "new year new you" band-wagon, and tasks like creating an organization to-do list for the next month really get me excited.

So, needless to say, two weeks of lounging and relaxing was long enough for me. As of January 1st I was motivated and focused on FINALLY putting the finishing touches on our master bathroom ensuite.

I first posted about our bathroom reno on June 10th. A whole 7 months ago!! (yikes!) Bit by bit and inch by inch - with a lot of help from family & friends - and after more than a few changes and re-designs, headaches and heartaches; the bathroom is done, it's perfect & I love it.

The goal for this space was to create a calm and relaxing sanctuary as part of the master bedroom. Incorporating my favorite design features including some natural, rustic elements, paired with simple scandinavian elegance, we achieved exactly the look we were going for. The result can be described as nothing short of a calming oasis.

I really shouldn't keep you waiting any longer. :)

Here is the bedroom space before being converted to our master bath. To give you a bit of context as to the new layout, the door that we're looking in through here in this photo is now where the shower is.

And here it is - our new, fresh & fantastic white inspired ensuite!

The modern floating style vanity with floating shelf was the main inspiration for this bathroom. I wanted this custom piece to add a unique element to the space. To me, the floating aspect maintains openness throughout the space, while the cedar acts as a rustic balance to contrast all of the shiny, white and chrome elements in the room. 

Functionality was a strong component in the design of this space. Features like a built in shower shelf, was a must. We also decided to extend the length of the counter top on the right so that there was extra room for toiletries and make-up.

We removed the one light in the center of the old bedroom and replaced it with 4 pot lights plus this sparkly fixture over the tub. The vanity lights and the light above the tub all have Edison style light bulbs which produce a lovely warm glow as contrast to the bright white of the LED pot lights.

Would any of my photo posts be complete without an appearance by Miss Penelope?

And this one also happens to include me!

I'm sure by now you're not surprised to see so many owl accessories throughout. Let's just say that my friends & family know me very well and owls were prominent this holiday season.

Phew! It really is such a relief to have this room finished. It was a complete labor of love and although it took a tremendous amount of time to complete, I don't think I would go back and do it differently. The breaks and waiting allowed us to make more thoughtful decisions and some of the mishaps or mistakes led to what are now my favorite parts of the room. Please let me know what you think! As with everything, I'm sure this space won't be for everyone. However as my first major design/reno project, I am pretty pleased with the outcome. 

Check back later this week for some of my lessons learned from this project!
