master bathroom

the master bathroom.  yup, its white.  i'm not sure what we originally had planned....it was light but i think more tan and cream.  mr. daddy saw a cararra and white bathroom in a showroom and was sold.  yay!  i had no convincing to do :)

the cabinetry and trim is painted benjamin moore's ready mix white.  the walls are sherwin williams quicksilver #6245.

we've lived in this house for 8 months now and so far no regrets on the white!  it is very calming.

during construction:


 the tub is not jetted.  i just like to soak.  quietly.

the tub surround is marble but not carrara.  its called white italian.  the little squares on the backsplash of the tub are carrara.   the floor tiles are carrara.

i keep my collection of medicine jars here on this shelf.  usually i have some candle in a jar too :)




this little built in unit adds storage and display.  you can see my jewelry bowls a little closer here.

during construction:


a few elements we desired in a master bath when we were building were:  his and her vanities, a soaking tub, a shower, a closet in the bathroom, a chandelier, and the toilet to be tucked behind a wall....  we had to rearrange the floor plan a bit but we were able to accomplish all of those things!

during construction (the painting stage):




 his sink area.

see that light switch?  it turns on a flood light at the front of the house.  if we hear a car or whatever it allows us to turn on the lights in the front of the house without having to run downstairs.  

building the vanities:


the shower.  simple white, subway tiles on the walls.  carrara 1 inch squares on the floor.  a strip of five rows of carrara  3/4 of the way up that matches the tub backsplash.


a closer look at the carrara detail.

during construction:



 cabinet knobs are restoration hardware.

faucets are delta.

more jewelry organization :)  these dandy little sets of hooks are from bed bath & beyond.
 

the toilet....tucked back just a bit.


the chandelier is actually pretty plastic.  i really wanted an antique one but have not found one yet.  this one is from home depot and unless you touch it, it looks great :)

  1. I love it! Now if you can share your tips for keeping those vanities all cleared off... :-) We have storage but those sonic care toothbrushes usually stay out, tissues, makeup bag etc....
    Thanks so much for sharing. I really enjoy your blog!

  3. Have I told you how much I love your house? I became a follower when you did the bed built-ins in the children's bedrooms. I was hooked. One of my daughter-in-laws plans to copy that idea when they build their house. I get so excited when I see you have posted because I love your tastes in things! LOVE this white bathroom! You are blessed!

  7. What a terrific master bath! You two have great taste! So fun that you and your husband had the same idea for the Master! I love all that white! I totally agree I just want a bath for a good quiet soak...no jets for me! :) I love the necklace hanger! Great that the potty is out of sight! So many great details..like those restoration hardware knobs! I love it all!

  8. My son just started reading the Billy and Blaze books by C.W. Anderson! Do your boys like these books? The first in the series was published in 1936. They have beautiful illustrations and are adventurous stories of a brave boy and his horse named Blaze!
