Back in October. I embarked on an amazing dream trip with Delta Faucet to get inspired by the beautiful city of Chicago. We were asked to remodel a kitchen or bathroom reflecting design aesthetics from our trip. You can check out details of the trip HERE.
I walked away with a vision of strong architectural details with hints of gold and blue like the lake. A dear friend of mine wanted to makeover a powder bathroom makeover so we decided to transform her bathroom from a dark, red room into a modern, bold, navy and white dream bathroom. The transformation is amazing! I honestly cannot believe it is the same space. So here is what we started with . . . .
And this is the bathroom today . . . .
Huge difference, isn’t it?
Since this is the downstairs bathroom, it’s used the most and needs to of course be functional before anything else. The overall layout of the sink and toilet was just fine and the pedestal sink was actually still perfect for the space since there’s also a linen closet in here. But the mirror was a bit small, the faucet a little short and the large towel bars were unnecessary.
My client has three children and if you have a lot of traffic in a small area like this, then the walls can get lots of nicks. We decided to go with a tall board and batten look in a semi-gloss white finish. She can easily wipe them down or even touch up the paint when needed.
We then decided on this Caitlin Wilson wallpaper that really transformed the space. I love the over-scaled print and bold graphic. It reminded me so much of The Hampton Social in Chicago where we had lunch on my trip with Delta.
Next, I picked this larger sized mirror with gold frame. The mirror really stands out and look like a piece of art. We had to relocate the light fixture above to go slightly higher since this mirror was much taller than the one in here before. But that made all the difference! Whenever you are in a small space, you can fake height with accessories, but moulding or paint is even better.
The biggest functional difference for this family is the new faucet. I absolutely loved the goose neck feature of the Trinsic faucet and it’s modern clean lines. The longer faucet neck makes it easier to get your hands under the water in the shallow sink bowl. I tend to bend my back when using sinks like the old one in this bathroom and with a longer faucet neck you don’t have to do that. We chose polished chrome for this bathroom to go along with the modern feel we were trying to achieve. I love the contrast of it with the mirror.
I really wanted the sink area to be the focal point in this space and chose a light fixture that would blend rather than stand out. The gorgeous clear shades of this fixture (similar) blend in and the Edison bulbs give it a vintage touch that is unexpected.
I chose a few simple accessories for the space. I love adding whimsical elements to a room and these vintage books are perfect with some pretty flowers on top. I also like to have a candle in a bathroom. I love the little pop of gold this one has to tie in with the mirror.
One of my favorite details was to have the light switch plate wallpapered too. I really don’t like how they always seem to stand out on a wall when they are their original color. I always like to paint or wallpaper them to make them go away.
So what do you think? It is a crazy big difference isn’t it?! I want to thank Delta for inspiring me for this project. This truly has been a dream makeover!
