Master Bath Reveal

Since our bathroom is actually clean today (a rarity) I thought it might be a good time to post some pics.  It is one of the best parts of the house and because of the hill in our backyard, this room is the highest point of the house. So when you look out the window, you feel like you are in a secluded forest. You'd never know Route 66 is so close by!

The paint color is Sherwin Williams Rain in semi-gloss.  Blues can be really tricky so it took me a long time to find the right one. This used to be part of the Pottery Barn paint color collection for SW but I think not any more. Anyway, it's perfect - not too baby blue, not too green.

The floor tile is a 6 x 24 Karu tile in Smoke Grey. It gives the look of a hardwood but is much sturdier in a bathroom setting. 

Here's a close up of the chandelier over the tub.  I got this on Overstock (sensing a theme here?) for $249. Each tiny crystal had to be hung individually but it was easy. We had the electrician put it on a dimmer for those rare times we want to host a dinner party in the bathroom.  

This basket weave tile in the shower is my fav. It is a 12x12 Calcutta marble and it was not cheap. We almost cut it a couple of times, but I am glad we kept it in.

The shower tiles are 12x24 calcutta marble and the floor is a white arabescato 5/8 x 5/8 mosaic. 

The vanity is from Pottery Barn. It retails for $2800 but I bought the floor sample from the store and got it for $1100!  It had quite a rough life getting installed though. First they sent the wrong cabinet. Then the installers cracked the top and the back splash - drama! So this marble top is actually not the one that came with it - but a remnant piece of marble that our builder had cut to fit (after considerable debate over how exactly the marble was broken).  Anywhoooo…it now looks great. 

I pinned about 500 pictures of bathrooms on my Pinterest page  when I was trying to decide how the bathroom should look.  You can click on the link to see them but here are a few of my favorite inspiration bathrooms:

This was my inspiration for the tile and the floor. 

This was my inspiration for color. 

I was really going for this clean white look. Think we got it!

So obviously, we didn't quite go in this direction but I love this bathroom too and I kept going back to this picture when we were picking out fixtures to get some ideas.
