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!

Love the way they set up the shower! Good idea! Lovely bathroom.
Beautiful makeover, although I have to admit, I kind of dig the art deco glass blocks.
Nice job! I always wonder if today’s makeover will be tomorrow’s “dated”. I think the best way to go is with “classic” tones, which this bath seems to have going on. Reminds me of something you’d see in France. Classic and chic!

So elegant and pretty. Loved this transformation. Timeless and beautiful.
Such a tranquil bathroom. Great job.
I agree that that the classic look of this bathroom is timeless. I really like the shower! The vanity is lovely, but I always think of the dust bunnies and the odd lost earring that will collect under it. It is a beautiful room and a job well done!
Radiant orchid……really? I hate these “color of the year” picks, seem silly to me.

1976, staying in Paris, France.
Remember well the black/white marble bathroom. Clawfoot tub in the center, shower nozel attached, no shower curtain.
Drain nearby in the floor. Heaven.
At least smaller bathrooms now have the floating glass option giving the ‘feel’ of that Paris bathroom.

Gotta love that old mauve! It occurs to me after seeing your post, Kathleen, that Pantone’s orchid isn’t that much different than those purple-pinks of days gone by, which scares me a little…ha.
Kathleen Moore says
Ha, very true. Orchid and gray / mauve and gray. Hmmm. Soon we’ll be back to avocado and harvest gold!!
Lovely remodeled bathroom, really good job guys!
I also thought of the mauve from the ’80s when they announced the color of the year on TV. What is old is new again I guess.
What a lovely bathroom! It looks nice and big now and classy.

I’m in love with that walk in shower. I wish I had taken the time when we renovated our bathroom to make it more user friendly, perhaps when we win the Lotto. Hi Julia hope you are doing well. Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful weekend. Regards Esther from Sydney
The furniture she used sure is lovely!!!

Wow, very well done. There is nothing better than an all white bathroom – timeless and clean. White allows anyone to intact their own personality with seasonal color and change things up a bit. Great job!

I love that floor! My wife is a big white white white fan, I will have to share these pictures with her, thanks!
