Master Bath Before and After

 Design projects always looks best when photographed professionally, but I was so pleased with how a recent project turned out, I had to share a little "before and after" peek. I am blessed with really wonderful clients, and the young couple who own this house are no exception. We are working together to refresh all of the interiors while the exterior is also getting a facelift. The Master Bath is the first room to be completed.
The house was built in the 20's and the original bathroom was in need of an update. The goals were to add storage, expand the shower if possible, and create a fresh, classic, and pretty bathroom. I was also asked if two sinks would fit.

I created more storage with a custom made vanity, and also by fabricating medicine cabinets using twin mirrors from Restoration Hardware. I chose antique brass sconces and ceiling mounted fixtures from Circa Lighting, the finish picking up on the gilt detail on the mirrors. There was even a little drawer in between the tub and shower. Classic Polished nickel plumbing fixtures, Calacutta Marble Counters, and marble mosaic floor finish off the design. Thanks to a very talented contractor, Eloy Tapia of GTO Construction, everything came together beautifully!


 Here is a little peek at the "before", actually very nostalgic and cute (check out the sweet little vanity!), but very "dysfunctional":
 By relocating a window to over the toilet, I was able to grab more wall space for the medicine cabinet mirrors.
 We were able to reuse the tub, which was resurfaced. The shape was irreplaceable and actually left room for a larger shower, as well as room in the budget for the beautiful finishes!
 The wall around the shower was replaced with frameless glass and enlarged, making the whole bathroom feel much larger.
Best part? Very happy clients!!

There are a couple of details to finish up: art and accesories, and window coverings. When it is all done and photographed by someone who is better with a camera than I, I will give you an update!!ο»Ώ
