Our master bath is one of the areas of our home that I'm the most proud of. When we moved in our bathroom rocked everything 80's - from the yellow marble countertops and light fixtures that looked like they were out of a backstage dressing room to original cabinets and laminate wood floors (which had been poorly done). The walls were painted green and there was a white trim around the wall. Basically, we saw the potential when we moved in but knew it would be a lot of work.
About two years ago we started really thinking about how we would want to redo the bathroom. We knew our bedroom was going to be a mid-mod feel with brass accents, grey and darker wood tones (you can see our bedroom tour here) and we wanted that to continue into our bathroom. We also knew we wanted some sort of backsplash behind our sinks that would be a statement, and I love the look of planked walls. We found a place that has gorgeous wood and they planed it for us to make it smooth and perfect. My dad and Will slaved away getting it up on the wall, and I'm absolutely in love with it. To keep it from going the rustic route, we added white quartz countertops, shiny new lights, brass fixtures and bowl sinks. Since we loved the cabinet space we already had, we decided to keep the bones of the cabinets but completely replace the doors for more modern ones and give them some brass handles. We had the flooring replaced when we redid the floors in our bedroom and we chose white hexagon tile with grey grout. To top it all off, I printed some photos I took in Chicago and hung a couple on the walls.
Our master suite is one of my favorite spots in the house because it's a room that we were able to completely make ours and we made it a spot that is great to retreat to.
