Penny is a reader who says that when it came to her old master bath, it was like, “Hello? 1999 Miami called and wants its art deco glass block and rocket ship light fixtures back.” Not only did it look dated, but the shower leaked and no amount of bleaching could keep the mold from creeping back out from under the tiles. So they tore out the old shower and started over. Here’s how the bathroom looks now…
The French vanity with marble top is something she found at Amazon.
Of the new shower, she says, “We decided to go with a zero clearance, walk-in shower without a door and no bathtub.” She explains that they live in a community that a lot of people retire to, so future prospective buyers probably wouldn’t want a huge tub in the master. This is easily accessible for anyone.
Here’s a close-up of the 12″ x 12″ Grecian marble tile and the 1″ Grecian marble hexagon tile they used:
The photo above the console table is one she took herself on a trip to Rome.
Thanks to Penny for sharing her bathroom with us! Visit her blog The Comforts of Home for more photos and details about it.
By the way, did you see that Pantone just named “Radiant Orchid” the Color of 2014? I was kind of surprised by it, but Penny’s bathroom made me think about how it probably works well with the grays that are so popular now. (Her paint color is Silver Leaf by Valspar.)
P.S. I’m planning another week of Before & Afters. If you have a makeover you’d like to share, send it to me! (If you’re a blogger, shoot me the link or post it on my Facebook page.) I’ve got plenty of readers’ bathrooms left to show, so I’d love to see some other rooms. Thanks!
