Beach Resort Bathroom - Reveal

I love a good challenge!  A few months ago, a new client came to me wanting to update their master bathroom which had never been updated in over 20 years!  The room had blue carpet, floral and striped wall paper, cultured marble, and a shower door in bad need of replacing.  

After creating several designs and not quite getting it right, we had an 'aha!' moment!  This fun and energetic couple love to travel and they'll head to any beach that an airplane or cruise ship will take them.  This bathroom was going to be their Beach Resort.... away from a beach resort. 


Master Bathroom Vanity
The old vanity, mirrors, light fixtures, and carpeting were ripped out and replaced with beautiful custom cabinetry painted in a brisk white, marble countertops, and a tile floor to look like handscraped wood.  Although the room is quite large, it is also quite narrow; by installing the mirrors floor to ceiling, the entire space looks larger and brighter. 

Shower and Tub
A must in this bathroom was a claw-foot tub, however the space for the tub was quite small. With a lot of research and some clever plumbing, we were able to install the cutest slipper tub I've ever seen and use the shower wall to house the plumbing fixtures. 

Free Standing Bath Tub
Resting on the window ledge is a vial filled with sand from the beach vacations the clients have taken! The accent tile mosaic, a blend of glass and stone, is present throughout the entire space: as the back splash on the counters, behind the tub, and also framed as an accent in the shower.

Stay tuned to see before and after comparison pictures!! :)  (I have to find the befores.... just need some time to dig through my computer :)
