If you’re an email subscriber or check back regularly, you probably saw my recent post on my design inspiration for our second floor bathroom renovation. I knew I wanted a blend of classic Nantucket charm (lots of whites and creams) and relaxed trop-traditional (natural elements and pops of color) with an undertone of a comfortable cottage feel. One of the main features that I wasn’t willing to negotiate on was a standalone pedestal tub. Our bathroom is relatively small as far as primary bathrooms go and it’s our only one with a shower/tub (we have a very small powder room on the first floor and another bathroom on the third floor with a claw foot tub that we aren’t sure works) so I wasn’t sure whether or not we would actually be able to make it work but it looks like we can! I am also getting a stand alone shower (!) but I am giving up a double vanity for spatial and counter space reasons.
Anyway, I met with my friend Lucy of Tartan & Toile (remember when she helped me with updating my powder room?) yesterday and we mostly finalized all of the design details! COVID has pushed back our dates quite a bit but I’m really excited to get everything started! I wanted to share with you a few of the pieces that we’re leaning towards here. I bought these sconces recently to go on either side of this mirror (I also love this rattan mirror) and I think we’re leaning towards marble-look subway tile for the shower walls. I really want scalloped tile on the floor but we are having trouble finding any that aren’t real marble so Lucy and I talked about doing some shade of gray instead. I was really torn as to whether or not to do a pattern on the floor or just keep it white but this bathroom design really sold me! We’re hopefully going to do a custom build for the vanity and use either a marble or marble-look (we used marble-look quartz in our kitchen & love it!) remnant for the top. I’m thinking about this gold lantern pendant to hang over the tub and also I really love this coastal print for over the toilet or next to it.
