this room may look familiar -
it’s where i take all my wiww pics.
so let’s get the first question out of the way:
what color is the paint on the walls?
answer: i don’t know!
it was from a swatch i had pulled years ago -
a martha stewart color from kmart, which no longer exists – sorry!
someday i think i’ll make up a packet of paint swatches for you all -
i get more questions about paint colors than just about anything else!
here’s the entry to my bathroom from my bedroom.
the master bedroom wall color is flax by restoration hardware.
the flooring is travertine tiles.
i love using beadboard on bathroom walls -
i think we’ve done it in all of our past houses.
the countertop is a travertine slab.
sinks are kohler from home depot.
the medicine cabinets were also from home depot.
the potty is just to the right of the sinks.
just across from the potty are these 3 pics.
i so badly need to change them out. i still love the pic of sean and i, but the other 2 were just fillers for the time being…
3 1/2 years ago.
the frames are from aaron bros.
i love the dark wood tones with the light and airy wall color.
that’s the door back into the master, in case you’re getting turned around ;)
one of my favorite features in our house are the 5 panel doors – but man, do they collect dust!
wall hooks (that you can’t see) for the towels were the martha stewart collection for kmart – cheap and pretty!
our shower is fabulous, if i do say so myself.
my poor kids hardly EVER get to take baths.
it is so much faster and efficient for me to take them in with me and shower them all at once.
best feature #1: double shower heads.
best feature #2: niche for toiletries under the shower head (which is from home depot)
our neighbor owns a tile company and sold us our beautiful hand glazed tile – something we NEVER would have purchased on our own.
i still love the layout of the tile – the subway pattern with the framed diamond area.
the floor and the ceiling also have the diamond pattern on them,
but the floor is done in travertine.
when the workers were here installing the glass in this shower and also in the other bathroom,
i had the flu.
i had to run between the bathrooms yelling at everyone to get out so i could throw up!
that flu turned out to be silas – surprise!
just an extra spot to hang more towels and my robes.
i have a summer robe and a winter robe.
i love wearing robes, almost as much as wearing jammies all day!
this is the door to the closet.
to the left is the washer and dryer and to the right is our closet.
straight ahead is another pocket door to the playroom.
this passthrough between the rooms was a happy accident.
it wasn’t drawn in the original plans and we just fiddled with it until it worked out!
i have very few accessories in this bathroom.
i just haven’t found something just right, and i haven’t really felt the need.
its kind of nice to have one room somewhat sparse.
these little bottles came from a trip to europe we took with my parents.
and the only other accessory is this little pottery barn knock off clock.
nicole introduced me to these great soap dispensers (from here).
i love love love them!
all of our door hardware is emtek.
in our past homes we have skimped on the knobs and done cheap stuff,
but there is a huge difference with quality knobs – mostly in how quiet they are in comparison.
these are called the clear old town knob with regular rosette.
its like jewelry for the doors.
we also splurged on the cabinet hardware throughout the house.
for some reason i was set on using latches rather than traditional knobs.
i am so glad i did – i really love using them.
we tried out a few less expensive versions and the just felt cheap, less solid.
these are from house of antique hardware.
ok, so thats it!
i hope you enjoyed my little tour of our master bath!
