First Friday Feature: Five Bold Bathrooms
You’ve already heard about this very colorful kitchen, but what about the bathrooms? Not surprisingly, they are just as full of color as you would imagine. And we loved helping to create this masterpiece of a home! Whenever we get a client who wants to deep dive into the entire house, we gain the unique capability to make it all flow together and tell a story. And if this house could talk, we think it would sing praises. Bright, cheery colors? Yes, please! Fun patterns in every room? You bet! Let’s take a deeper look into each of these bold bathrooms and what makes them so special.
Den and Half Baths
Both of these bold bathrooms are on the first floor of this home, so guests are frequently choosing one or the other. Below left and center: the den bath. Below right: the half bath off the dining room. Each room features a bold floral wallpaper. Marimekko Piene Tiara covers the den bath and Graham & Brown Chinoiserie Canary spotlights the half bath. Touches of greens, yellows, and pink tones are actually seen throughout the home. The half bath, being so small, uses the same brick floors as the home entry and dining spaces. It’s fixed with an American Standard Triangle commode and Duravit sink basin. The den bath opts for Ultracraft floating cabinets in a Cocoa stain with an Amazonite counter and a Dravit semi-recessed vessel sink. Brizo Rook fixtures in Chrome, Crossville beveled subway tile and Daltile Frost Moka mosaic finish the walk-in shower.
The Kids’ Bathrooms
The upstairs bathrooms are all ensuite’s meaning they are attached directly to their bedrooms. With two rooms previously belonging to their children, these homeowners have updated the spaces to now allow the grandkids a space of their own when they visit. Both bold bathrooms have their own unique scheme. The first has floating cabinets from Ultracraft in Beach White paint, styled with Emtek Lida black knobs and topped with Caesarstone Frosty Carrina quartz counters. Another fun wallpaper is used in this space: Schumacher Citrus Garden. The shower sports Interceramic 3×6 Bone on the fixture wall, Pratt & Larson 8×8 Marigold Embossed tile on the window wall, and Pratt & Larson 1″ circle mosaic in a yellow color on the shower floor. The main floor tile is from Artistic Tile, the Tex Hex Cream Matte.
A mirror-imaged layout from Ensuite #1, the second does have complementary components. The floors – from Artistic Tile – are the same, as well as the Interceramic 3×6 on the shower fixture wall. The other tile comes from Pratt & Larson, but in different colors and patterns, with the 8×8 Blossom embossed on the window wall and a pink 1″ circle used on the shower floor. The wallpaper is from Caitlin Wilson’s Marseille collection, Citron Vert. Cabinets and counters are also matched, but the cabinet hardware – a pink Florette knob – was provided here by the homeowner, found locally. Both of these bold bathrooms utilize Brizo Rook shower fixtures and sink faucets in Chrome, matching Brizo accessories, and Toto commodes and sinks.
Subtly Bold Primary Suite
While using some of the same ideas – embossed tile, patterned wallpaper, and chrome accents – this primary suite is the most calming of the home’s bathrooms. Wanting to make it feel a little more spa-like, we leaned more into the whites and teals seen in other spaces in the home to create a more subtle look. Kitchencraft cabinets are used at the vanity and linen closet in Whitecap paint. Cambria Torquay quartz is seen on the countertops. Plumbing fittings are mostly from the Newport Brass Metropole collection, while the sink and commode are Toto. Floors are Marble Systems Snow White 2″ hex and tiled walls are Crossville Mailoica (Deco) White 4×10 tiles. A Cheviot Regency tub (seen at top) and Graham and Brown Crane Green wallpaper complete the room.
