Sharon writes, “My house is an Edwardian in San Francisco that was built in 1907. When I bought it in 1989 it was liveable, but just barely. You could actually see the dirt through the holes in the bathroom floor.”
She initially gave it a “make-do makeover” until she could give it the full remodel it needed. Here’s how it looks now…
It looks much fresher now while maintaining the traditional look that suits the house.
She collects little Eiffel Towers and took the photos that are on the wall herself when she was in France.
She says, “I love my Parisian bathroom!”
“The mirror is from Wisteria, the Eiffel Tower lamp is from Target,
and I made the curtains from Ralph Lauren fabric.”
It’s fun to see how people personalize their bathrooms.
She sent me this photo to show how her Eiffel Tower collection has grown:
“The floor is real marble in a custom pattern and the wainscoting is new (the original had rotted in places). The sink is from American Standard, the toilet is from Toto and the clawfoot tub is from Sunrise Specialties.”
Every Edwardian house needs a cat, right?
“This is Coco, who I adopted from the San Francisco Animal Shelter.”
Looks like Coco likes the bathroom, too! Thanks to Sharon for sharing it with us.
…even the kitty is perfect!…blessings laney

Lovely and fresh! Love the French details! And yes Laney, even the kitty matches the décor! 🙂

This bathroom is really great. I love the details – lighting, mirror, floor, sink, tub and I love the color scheme. Very relaxing and Coco is so adorable! She looks like we’re invading her space 🙂

Nice upgrade. I like the sink, mirror and light fixture, and the colors are nice, but I am more minimalist in my decor. I’d remove that whole corner piece with the lamp (not enough light? reading lamp for ambiance?) and perhaps one or two pictures and eiffel towers.
Looks like someone has found their throne. 🙂

I’ll keep my response simple, it’s the response I had when I saw the after photo: Oh.Wow. 🙂

Great remodel. It’s always nice to see a bold color on the walls. The ceiling light medallion is a nice touch. But I have to admit, as a cat person, Coco is probably my favorite part of this post. 🙂
Awesome! Very elegant and an elegant kitty too! Great job!
Lovely ….. shame we cant have table lamps in the bathroom in the UK not even allowed a wall switch has to be a pull cord
Oh, really? I didn’t know that. Interesting!

What a difference! I love the mirror!
What a fresh classic look to the bathroom now. I love every single detail.
Beautiful remodel, and she obviously has a talent for decor. Personally, I find the idea of a table lamp next to a toilet a little silly. I love the colour scheme, and I think it’s neat that the new floor looks much like the old floor, only better, and same with the toilet.

Not so silly if you run out of toilet paper. My bet says that’s exactly where the extra rolls are. A French decor demands a bit of whimsy, lol.

I like bathrooms with character and this has it to the max and Coco is a perfect addition. Hi Julia this was fun thank you for sharing. As I’m typing this email I’m thinking you gals must be making lists and checking them twice for your thanksgiving…where do you get the time and energy, stress and joy at the same time….wonderful. Till next time Regards Esther from Sydney.
Hi Esther! Yes, I’m definitely starting to plan for Thanksgiving. My son Jake and his girlfriend are coming home from college to visit and that’s going to be the highlight of the holidays for me, I think. Can’t wait to see them. And maybe eat some pumpkin pie, too, while I’m at it. Ha. 🙂
I love this! Who would have thought to put a lamp next to the toilet? It works!
I’d love to know the source for the shower rail kit. Our clawfoot from the same era needs a new setup and I’m running out of ideas…Thanks in advance!
I am totally in love with that mirror!!!
I also love the sink, but I could never give up the storage space that our bathroom vanity gives us. Our bathroom is just too small.
