In my latest design, we took a dated and dingy master bathroom that was anything but crisp and clean and created a light and bright bathroom retreat that anyone would love to be in! With disjointed flooring, underwhelming mirror and vanity, tiled wall and corner jacuzzi tub that was rotten in parts and peeling, the overall design concept was to freshen every corner to reveal a modern master that featured sleek and simple selections with eclectic styling to finish it off. Here is where we started the process...
// Wishlist //
1. Oval soaker bathtub
2. Open up the dark (coffin, perhaps) shower with a half-wall and glass insert and door
3. New flooring, shower tile, fixtures, lighting, window treatments
4. Update the vanity to something stunning and simple
5. Demo the wall tile and paint the space one beautiful white color
6. Style it simply to show off the best features
With the amazing work of Steve Long, owner of SL Construction & Restoration, the completed bathroom is a beautiful space that is light, bright and airy.

For the styling, less was certainly more! Original photography from Guatemala, a fun "Get Naked" print in a dark wood to tie in with the natural bamboo blinds and a vintage rug in all the right colors accentuated the dark porcelain tile flooring and gray vanity and created one cohesive color story. Fresh flowers are always a must and cotton towels found on Etsy all created a comfortable and enticing space you just want to enjoy. The soaker tub is the highlight and towels with tons of texture and tassels and a small leather tote to hold the extras from Hearth & Home from Target were the perfect addition to the area by the tub. Silver faucets and matte black round mirrors set above the crisp white countertop created visual interest and tied in with the amazing tile and dark grout shining in the shower. In all, this eclectic bathroom is a master retreat that is a beautiful transformation from top to bottom.
