Posts Tagged ‘Bathroom’

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


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.

The Upstairs Bonus Room



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!

 Below, are some pictures of a powder room I just finished, along with my inspiration behind this little project.




Another Angle

The new floor in a herringbone pattern

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.
