The big reveal of the surprise bath makeover for my client’s husband. He had no idea that while she was having her bath renovated, his was being redone as well.
His taste is black and white literally. He is all about function and likes a clean, streamlined bath with everything in reach – even the telephone!
Here’s the bath before… the flower border is not very masculine, is it?
I put together the design elements to see how they would look and shot photos to send to my client. The vanity is actually more white than in this photo. I found an amazing wall covering from Romo (see below), perfect for the bath with texture and drama. Because there is a sea of white in the tile, vanity, doors etc… the bath is not too dark with this paper. Looks like it would be though, doesn’t it?
The stone flooring from Porcelanosa is similar to the wife’s master bath but hers is in shades of cream and taupe. It’s a great way to connect two spaces without making them too matching. And this dark stone was the inspiration for the black and white theme in his bath.
Lots more storage in the vanity with drawers, a new medicine cabinet and a shelf to house the electric toothbrush. We moved the socket closer to the shelf. The color, texture and pattern in the tile are picked up again in the wallpaper.
Polished chrome and black and white accessories finish the look.
I love to hear from you. What does your dream bath look like?
