Prior to our renovation, this bathroom was a bedroom. We had to plumb and wire this space to create an en suite. Off of the bedroom we closed in the jack and jill bathroom to become a walk in closet. Historical homes like ours did not offer luxuries like a walk in closet or ensuite, so I think it’s amazing how we managed to modernize ours. We spent many hours mapping out the new floor plan with several options. Luckily my husband is good at envisioning structural changes and floor plans. I like to stick to the pretty stuff! 😉
In most bathrooms, you would find the plumbing on the other side of the tub. Long story, but mine is not. Although it was a contractor/plumber “boo boo”, I like the look of the pipes!
The claw foot tub was custom painted a mint green complementing the ming green marble vanity top and floor. We heated the floors for those chilly days in the winter.
I found this chandelier online ON SALE! When I saw the green glass, I knew it was the one!
The window treatment fabric is a bird print. I am crazy about bird fabric and have a few different prints throughout the house.
The shower was a difficult install due to the slopped ceiling. The glass broke three times beforehand. Mother of pearl lines the shower wall and adds a shimmer to the room!
I love the rain shower head. The oil rubbed bronze finish creates a contrast against the mint and off white.
The vanity was custom built to fit the space and houses an apron sink. I haven’t seen an apron sink in a bathroom before, but thought it would be interesting to do! The walls and vanity are painted Ben Moore “Dove Wing”.
My favourite touch to the bathroom! I love mermaids and found her at Anne At Home Knobs! You can custom order the cabinet hardware in the finish you would like. I mixed and matched my cabinet knobs in all bathrooms and every bathroom has a special theme. This is the mermaid bathroom! 😉
You can see the hammered bronze detail on this cabinet pull. They are actually very heavy. I chose a vintage looking faucet but needed an extra large one due to the depth of the apron sink.
The oil rubbed sconces are placed on the inside of each cabinet. I like how they reflect in the mirror.
Ming green marble mosaic tiles were used for the flooring.
I’ve had this canister for 15 years! Funny how things get better with age!
The white weather mirror works in this space. Mirrors are a great way to make a smaller space appear larger and reflect the light!
The view of the river is another relaxing bonus!
