I am thrilled to share about the completion of our primary bathroom remodel, a project that has been in the works for quite some time. My vision for the space was to create a timeless oasis with a spa-like ambiance, complete with plush bath towels, ample storage, natural light, and a luxurious shower head. I wanted a place where I could unwind and rejuvenate in both a peaceful and beautiful setting.

Things To Keep In Mind

During the remodeling process of our older home, we encountered some structural issues that caused a delay in the project. Our contractor had to level the uneven floor and add more support for the heavy tile and bathtub. However, after two and a half weeks of structural work, we were able to proceed with the remodel. Our contractor was able to take the whole room down to the studs, allowing us to add more insulation and come up with a new floor plan that made more sense for us.

Fun Finishes

For the finishing touches, I chose a striking blue and white hydrangea wallpaper from Quadrille’s climbing collection, which added both energy and a timeless charm to the space. We also used polished nickel sconces and cane-detailed mirrors from  Shades of Light to create interest and give the bathroom a classic, coastal-inspired feel. We opted for a clean and crisp look with a white vanity and quartz countertop, complemented by polished nickel faucets .We kept it clean and crisp with a white vanity and quartz counter top and selected these .  Our contractor color matched all of our trim and crown moulding to match the vanity to keep things cohesive. I love mixing design elements for interest so I chose these timeless polished nickel sconces and these beautiful cane detailed mirrors.  I also feel like they give the bathroom a classic feel with a coastal inspired touch. Overall, we are extremely happy with how the remodel turned out!

I wanted a wow factor over the bathtub. I love it when you walk into a space and see a statement light. Therefore, I selected this beautiful handmade beaded Lily Chandelier from Ro Sham Beaux. It adds a little fun to a classic space, and the blue glass beads are just stunning.  I love the hemp wrapping for its added texture and the way the light highlights the beautiful bathing space.

Floor and Shower Tile

We had hardwoods in the bathroom initially. They were getting destroyed by all of the moisture and had water damage. We removed these completely, allowing us to add radiant heat underneath the tile. I highly recommend doing this! The heat coming through these tiles feels so good in the morning when I am getting ready for the day. I wanted a classic and clean look on the floor, so I partnered with Tiles Direct and selected their velvet white matte porcelain tile in 12×24 for the bathroom floor.

I chose the white penny rounds for our shower floor and the velvet white matte porcelain in 4×12 for the shower walls. We used white grout and added crown molding to the top of the tile for a finished look.  I selected polished nickel shower heads, and we added a rain shower head to the center of the shower.


Cabinet hardware can really make or break a space.  It seems like such a minor detail but it really will set the tone of your space and give it some personality.  I partnered with Emtek to put the perfect finishing touches on our cabinetry and doors. I selected the 6″ freestone pulls in polished nickel for all of our drawers in the bathroom and our closet. I love how they look on the cabinetry.

I am so happy to have this project completed and look forward to enjoying this beautiful space on a daily basis. To see more of our home you can head here.
