Guest Bathroom Reveal and a Thank You

I just love how this little bathroom remodel turned out.  This is a guest bathroom that is also used as a powder bath, so it needs to look beautiful for guests whether they are staying overnight or not. 




Before photos below.





It was okay, but it could be so much better.


We started with the creamy yellow wall color used throughout the home to inspire the finishes.  I found this lovely wallpaper that is the real feature in this bathroom.  Gray with some yellow and a watercolor effect.


from Seabrook Wallcoverings


From there, the antiqued 6 x 6 slate tiles for the floor from Thorntree in Houston. They have the perfect shadings of greige and the brushed finish feels great underfoot.

Then came the beautiful white onyx for the counter and splash. 


love that white onyx, sort of greige with yellow veining

The new tub is a deep soaker, selected by the homeowner.  It fits well in this compact space.  We did it in the biscuit finish which related in color to the onyx.
Biscuit subway tile for the bathing surround.  I didn't want to use the slate for this, it would've been too dark and masculine and would've made the tub stand out as bright white.  As it is it blends in with the tub and makes a nice bathing alcove.

Pretty paint colors that bring out the color in the wallpaper and the onyx,

brushed nickel fixtures and hardware in a simple design so as not to take away from the wallpaper.

A mirror in a special finish,

a custom shower curtain to fit the space perfectly with an end to end curtain rod mount in a finish that relates to the mirror frame. 

There are so many different elements that go into pulling a small space like this together.






You know, it's all in the details.

Wow! The bathroom looks beautiful, Carla! I especially love your choice of wallpaper and slate floor tiles. Wonderful transformation!

I love everything about this, especially the way the crisp lines of the fixtures contrast with the curviness of the wallpaper. It really is beautiful. Can you tell me what tub you used? The squared off interior is so much nicer than the original tub.

Lovely! And I must say...I always love your blog header...are the floors concrete?

thisisthewayitis said...

I can't believe how much brighter the bathroom looks. Even though the palette is mostly neutrals, the space still has a rich and luxurious vibe. Great job!

Carla Aston said...

Linda, yes they are concrete. I'm working on my new website and blog with a marketing guy now...I will be changing that out/relocating to another place. I'm excited but I kind of dread it. I feel like I've just conquered blogger and now I have to go learn something else! Such is life!

Thank you so much for visiting and your kind words about my little DR.

This bath is outstanding, the way that you coordinated the subtle undertones in all the components. I am particularly loving the sconces and the wallpaper.

Princess Kate said...

I love this. It's so beautiful. Everything goes together perfectly. Thanks for sharing.

Kifus said...

Lovely transformation, Carla! Love the antique feel of the wallpaper and that curved backsplash is beautiful!

I also loved your tips for flooring in your previous post!
