Hello friends! Today I’m sharing the rest of our master bathroom tour, along with more details about the space.
This room did give us some challenges during the design/building stages. Originally the shower was going to be in a different spot, and the sinks were flanking the window & bathtub, (which is a look I do love) but we decided to relocate the shower to this side and make it more of a focal point. I believe it could have worked either way, but for us this made the most sense. It seemed to make the space less choppy and also gave us a whole lot more storage by the sinks.
It was an interesting process, seeing our design plans go from paper to reality. A few things that looked really good on paper felt a whole lot different once the walls were up! For the most part, we were good, but the master bathroom was definitely an area that we played around with a LOT until we finally had a layout that felt right.
I hand selected each and every one of these marble tiles, including the ones on the vanity wall too! If you’ve ever worked with marble tile, you know how much variation you can get from box to box, and if you aren’t careful you can get a look that is a bit crazy… or something entirely different than what you were planning on. I spent many many (MANY) hours at the flooring store going through the tiles (with the help of our kiddos too) picking the tiles that were more creamy and white. It was a labor of love and definitely worth it, because we ended up with the results we envisioned.
The free standing tub is a trend I am loving and we went with one that has a clean modern feel to contrast the more traditional feel of the fixtures. The decorator in me likes that this style of tub allows for some space to add in things like the chair and stool, which actually get used a TON so they provide functionality as well. We bathe our baby in here so I use the stool a lot and the girls love to come in and sit on the chair to talk to me while I do my hair and make up.
The chair is one I recently got while thrifting and recovered with this fabulous black and white buffalo check fabric. It’s one of those chairs that could work in a lot of spaces and I imagine it will move around our house from time to time, but for now I’m happy with it in here. I toyed with the idea of painting it white, but there are some things that simply must be left in their natural wood color and this was one of those for me. I love how the wood really warms up the space up and also how it keeps the room from feeling too stark and new.
The light above the tub is a showstopper for sure! It’s from Arizona Lighting and I LOVE that it adds some glam and wow factor to the space! We used Arizona Lighting for a lot of the light fixtures around our home and they were SUPER helpful in making our visions for the lighting come true. I would tell her what we had in mind and she would find exactly what I was looking for. Lighting was definitely a favorite part of the process for me! It truly makes such a difference in a space and can set the tone for the whole room!
I went with a simple white linen roman shade in here and chose inside mount so the pretty marble tile wouldn’t be covered up. It adds privacy when we need it and then pretty much fades away when it’s up. I love how much natural light this bathroom gets!

It’s a little hard to see here but I had the tile installed on the vanity wall in a double basket weave turned on the diagonal. It’s sort of a fun take on the herringbone pattern. I also had the installer place the tiles so that there is little to no grout space. I like that it feels somewhat fresh and different but also feels classic at the same time.
Happy Thursday Friends!
