Second Floor Renovation: Primary Bath Reveal
In case you missed it, we’ve been underway on a Second Floor Renovation and I shared all of the plans here. I recently shared some framing and drywall progress here and details on the finishes here. Get up to speed via those posts as today, I’m revealing the primary bath!
At the end of the post, I’ve linked all of the selects of decor and finishes for convenience, however, please see details on the hardware finishes post here. Let’s get into it!
As mentioned on the finishes post, I wanted the overall aesthetic to balance a timeless, yet modern style that blends neutrals to stand the test of time. To push outside the norm, I was looking for a muted taupe finish on the cabinetry and we happily found just that! As for tile, wanted a mix of natural stone hues, overall feeling light and airy. You’ll see a mix of whites, taupe and grays in both the floor, wall and penny tiles. It was so fun to see that our designer found a perfect slab to pull the space together for the countertop.
To keep with the idea of mixing, you’ll find a blend of polished nickel bath hardware, with honey brass cabinetry pulls + accessories throughout the space.
The decorative accents were selected to bring in some lived-in elements, utilizing earthy tones. The vintage rug is full of almost every color, but muted with olives and beiges. I am obsessed with the shop I sourced it (and my wardrobe rug, coming soon) from. The towels were gifted in partnership with Slowtide, a brand I have loved and used for years. They are the most beautiful muted green tone and are super soft + absorbant. I also have them in cream, and their robes are so comfy. All are linked at the end of this post, and you can get 20% off your order with code MEGLEONARDCO20.
All of the greens are faux and I couldn’t be happier with them! The shower topiary is all plastic, making it perfect for getting wet and not worrying about damage. It is so realistic and very affordably priced for a good faux topiary. The counter arrangement is a mix of favorites from Afloral, all linked below! I wanted a feminine touch and paired the scallop terracotta vase with all the greens for contrast.
As for art, I found a beautiful print on Etsy that reflects our neighborhood to bring a personalized touch, while reflecting a calm feeling in the space. Target has become my go-to for affordable, quick delivery frames that hold up well. I tried many different aspect ratios and tones, and ultimately loved how this dark wood elevates the space and that the vertical positioning elongates the wall. Shop both the print and frame below!
I love to mix tones, textures and shapes – so pairing round elements, marble and ceramic materials and other muted tones was a must to give a custom feel. I really wanted a bare counter, with essentials like a ring dish and a place for hand soap.
The lights were super affordable, yet high quality and arrived rather quickly! They come in a ton of finishes.
The mirror was custom made and it was super fun to draw out the trim design to frame the entire wall’s elements over buying a mirror to hang. All other finishes were discussed in my previous finishes post – read here.
Lastly, the paint color is kept the same with the rest of the home – Cloud Cover by Benjamin Moore with Pure White by Sherwin Williams on the trim. Once again, it all contrasts beautifully!
I’ll share the water closet once we finish some DIY trim work and shelf decor. The baby’s arrival put this on the back burner, but wanted to share where our toilet is located! It features a sliding, inner barn functioning door but has the look of a sleek pocket door.
Please let me know if you have any questions about the process, selections or where to find something! Next up – I’ll be organizing these drawers and sharing my process and items used for it. Then, the same for the wardrobes. Thanks for being here!
