As I mentioned yesterday, while we’re tearing into the master bathroom and kitchen, one space we can check off the list as remodeled is the downstairs bathroom. I love the combinations of finishes and styles in this space, a modern geometric wallpaper paired with a traditional vanity, and touches of brass mixed with oil rubbed bronze.
I wrote about the halfway point in this post from last month and showed the state of the original bathroom when we bought the house.
We’ve replaced everything in this space from the flooring on up, including a new vanity, mirror, light fixture, and faucet. Over the weekend we added board and batten below and I wallpapered up above with York’s Franco wallpaper.
The light fixture is this Feiss vanity strip but note if you intend to buy it the three wide middle parts of it glow a hint red when turned on which I was not aware of when I bought it because it’s nowhere in the description but I just went with it. The Tiana mirror is from Ballard Designs but I don’t see it for sale on their site anymore (not sure why) but it appears in the most recent catalog, so I’ll try to find out if it’s just a temporary thing. The faucet is Moen Ashville in bronze.
I liked the idea of the new vanity looking more like a piece of furniture so I swapped out the plain knobs that came with it with diamond back plate brass ring pulls. I love these pulls and I’ve used them before, so I replaced the center knobs with the smaller 73mm ones and the side drawer pulls with the larger 91mm versions.
