Posts Tagged ‘Bathroom’

My last post on this little cottage is the master bath and the upstairs family room.

Before

Yikes! I know, a bit ugly, but it’s amazing what paint, new flooring, a walk in shower and other essentials can do!

This was a very simple and low-cost bathroom makeover. I gutted it except for the vanity base which I had painted inside and out. I used leftover marble tiles from my previous home for the countertop. When the new flooring was installed I opened up the shower completely and used subway tiles throughout. I also had my contractor change the lighting from overhead fixture to wall sconces (with dimmer). A new toilet, faucet fixture, towel rack and medicine cabinet finished it out.

Sorry for the blurry picture but when the cottage was purchased the lighting was quite bad.

This was a really fun project and I can’t believe I was only able to enjoy this home for 7 months! Now, besides a project still in the works in Austin, I am busy trying to work on my little home here in Los Angeles. I will hopefully post some pics soon!

Another Angle

The new floor in a herringbone pattern

Inspiration Board

Paint color, “Pitch Blue” from Farrow & Ball

A pedestal sink instead of a vanity to allow for more floor space. I also love the large flat surface on this pedestal sink to allow for a beautiful bar of soap or vase with fresh flowers.

A chrome faucet fixture for a bit of shine

Marble tile for the floor placed in a herringbone pattern for interest

A sea-grass mat for a beach feel

An ornate mirror to add personality

A Capiz light fixture for something that shimmers
 A large basket to store all the pool towels. This one is from Swahili Imports.
