I am bursting at the seams to share my bathroom renovation from earlier this spring. I have spent hours and MONTHS pouring over design ideas and consulting my ever growing Pinterest boards about what I wanted my new bathroom to look like.
My house is 91 years old (built in 1926 if you’re not great at math). My great grandparents built it in the mid-20s when they immigrated from Italy so it kind of holds a special place in my heart. I’ve lived in it for over 15 years and realized that no major renovations had been done on it since I’ve lived there. Well we have to fix that!! I have been inspired lately to go more neutral. Bright, fresh, clean lines were the only thing I wanted. I have such an eclectic mix of styles that I love, ranging from ‘Mid-Century Modern’ to ‘Farmhouse’ to ‘Swanky Hotel’. I couldn’t decide on just one look so I tried to incorporate small design elements from each style that I liked.
I knew I definitely needed the small space to feel as large as possible so I needed lighter and brighter walls. I used Behr satin finish paint in Shiny Luster from Home Depot for my wall color and Behr Ultra Pure White for my baseboards and tri-fold mirror that I refinished.
I had my heart set on copper fixtures throughout BUT it was proving difficult to find bathroom fixtures in real copper simply because they’re not made for moisture-inducing rooms very often because I’m told they turn a greenish color when exposed after a long period of time to humidity and moisture. I found a brushed copper finish on my bathroom sink faucet at Signature Hardware and a champagne bronze shower kit from Wayfair (Lowe’s had it also but for $50 more).
I picked out a carrara marble mosaic floor tile from Home Depot (made by Jeffrey Court), bright white 3×6 subway tile in a straight herringbone pattern (also Jeffrey Court), wooden corner shelves (thanks Target!), and a copper round mirror from Urban Outfitters. All links are listed below to each item (I’m also not affiliated with any company – I just love everything THAT much).
I still cannot stop drooling over the makeover. What do YOU think??!
