After 1.5 years, 3 contractors and countless surprises hiding under the floors, the attic guest room bathroom is finally complete! What started as two small and barely functional rooms is now a large, luxurious spa-like oasis.
The project started as two separate rooms – a small bath with no headroom for a shower and a small study. The guest room is across a small hallway, both of which are on the third floor.
One of the challenges was figuring out how to get enough height for a shower (and one that would accommodate my 6.3″ tall dad when he visits)
In order to gain the height we needed, we took down the center wall and vaulted the ceiling so that there was enough room for a shower.
This was the first project I fully conceptualized and designed from the ground up and I can’t tell you how happy I am with the results – so I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
I found the gilt mirror at a local thrift store and knew it would be the perfect fit for above the french porcelain vanity.
I wanted the fixtures to have a period appropriate feel for the 1870’s house, so I selected this exposed rain head shower.
I’m in love with the classic and timeless carrara marble tiles, especially the herringbone!
I’m still making small decor adjustments to the space, but that’s all part of the fun!
We finally have a guest bathroom that I am proud of, and one that promises guests will love. For me, one of the best parts of having an old home is tweaking it so that it has all the modern luxurious touches new homes have, but with much more heart & soul.
