Because Therapy's Expensive
We always cross our fingers that a renovation turns out as amazing in person as our initial vision and storyboard. AND that our client loves it as much as we do. Well, this latest bathroom project was a super duper success and I think all of us were blown away by the end result. The original footprint of the bathroom was a great size to begin with, so we were able to work with the original plumbing layout and had plenty of space to work with to create an elegant, fresh, happy room.
We love idea of a wet room, where the tub and shower are together behind a wall of glass, and this layout provided us the perfect opportunity to create one. The existing vanity needed to be updated for more storage as well as to remove features she didn't use (chair nook and multi-level sinks). We also removed the dated soffit containing the vanity light for an immediate refresh.
Now, we assume that when people hire us to renovate bathrooms that they know that what we are going to propose is color and pattern. While we can and have done serene and elegant; bright, bold and happy is totally our jam.
It might seem out of place to put a dark wood cabinet in this bathroom, but with so much blue and white, it needed a darker color to anchor the room. We also brought in natural elements in the bone inlay mirrors and teak stool in the shower, and like to include these elements in every design. Kind of like a visual sorbet to cleanse the palette!
Because the wet room space was so big, we chose an economical white subway tile and aqua mosaic tile to match the floor. Mosaic tile is perfect for the shower floor as the grout lines provide a non-slip surface. By replacing the built in tub with a vessel tub, we gained a ton of room for the shower. Seriously, you could have a party in here.
Lastly, the wallpaper from Anthropologie gives the space that feminine touch to balance all the geometric designs and dark wood vanity. I guess we passed the test because we are already hard at work on a plan for the client's guest bath. She's already told us though that it can't be as fabulous as this one. We'll try to contain ourselves.
