Remember when I wanted to work on our tiny master bath as our one room challenge but plumbing issues had me swap this space out for our foyer? Well now it’s a new year and we’re ready to tackle this old space. It’s going to be a long and slow process but the progress is what counts and that is what I love sharing with you all! In the end eventually many many many weeks in the future you can all enjoy the pretty pictures and my family will get to enjoy the pretty tiny bath. 😬
INSPIRATION + MATERIALS:
I want to make sure this bathroom flows with the rest of my home and was minimal. I want to create the feeling of light and airyness with a subdued hint of luxury and I want that to all happen with the materials and textures in the room. Any color I bring to my home is through the decor which can be interchanged to what season i’m in and I don’t mean just the weather but season of my life. Designing a space as a minimalist and highlighting materials and textures gives me the freedom to add pinks or greens or blues whenever I please and not worry about the color clashing with the space itself. I’m planning on using lots of light rich marbles and light wood and even some jewel tones as the base of this room and then add in the fun touches alllll the way in the end when it’s time for adding functional decor. Full disclaimer my projects morph and change as we work on the space and I notice our needs and the look changing so this is only the first of my materials list with many revisions to come.
This past fall we got the bathroom demoed and all the extremely heavy trash bags have been taken by our so very kind garbage men who deal with our constant reno garbage with such patience and kindness.
Now the boring behind the scene snaffu we came across was the plumbing in this bathroom. It’s ancient and needs to be redone just like the rest of our bathrooms needed except the cast iron shower drain was broken and stuck. Hubby ended up racking his brain and did his magic and got it undone. Now we are ready to get back into this project!
