I love seeing a design scheme come to life, especially after the many months of planning, consulting and hard work contributed by the many people involved... and this project was no different. This bathroom which is currently used by the client's teenage son is an integral part of a larger overall remodel project so the homeowners chose to gut it with an elevated design. Their son who is a high school junior will head off to college soon and this will be the main guest bath in the house. Wait until you see the living room and kitchen that sit just off this space!
You may remember the design board I shared a few months ago featuring the design scheme below. The client requested a blue and white color scheme with a modern coastal flair. After falling in love with a large scale wallpaper, this was the inspiration for the rest of the bathroom design.
Shiplap and antique gold finishes were used to tie in with the gold accents in the wallpaper. At first the clients weren't quite sure about this but then decided to go for it and are so glad they did! We kept things clean and modern by using square shapes and softened it back up with a round mirror.
Here are some of the before photos...
And here are the amazing after photos...
One of my favorite design details is the addition of shiplap which we ran to around 42" high. This allowed us to eliminate the need for a 4" vanity backsplash and created a seamless edge on both sides of the room. The fabricator added a low 1 1/2" splash... I'm not sure why but it works! Also, replacing the fiberglass shower unit with a new tub, subway tile and shower glass really opened up that entire end of the room. Glass reflects light and makes small spaces feel larger.

Hope you enjoyed today's bathroom reveal. Next week I'll feature the master bath. The kitchen is 95% complete and guess what we're waiting on... appliances! Specifically a new wider range. If you haven't heard, appliances are the hold up of many new kitchens. It is so important that you design your kitchen well ahead of time and order those appliances as soon as possible. When this one finally arrives I'll be photographing it to share it with you. Keeping our fingers crossed for a late September delivery.
Also coming in September, you can join me for five days of free live trainings each covering a different topic around kitchen design. To access, join my private facebook group Kitchens, Baths & Mudrooms by Design. The beauty of watching live is you can ask me any questions you might have related to your project. If you can't make it live you can always watch the replay later on.
Enjoy your weekend!
