Welcome back! A few weeks ago we showcased this main floor Marda Loop Powder Room project that we completed for our design-savvy clients. We were originally hired by these clients to renovate their master ensuite bathroom, but we are saving those photos as a surprise when they will be revealed in the September issue of Style at Home Magazine. They were so thrilled with the master bathroom makeover that they asked us to renovate the four other bathrooms in their home!
We were delighted to see our bathroom transformation and two additional bathrooms from this home featured in Lonny Magazine and Rue Magazine! Let’s take a closer look at the second-floor bathroom renovation:
One element that our clients requested we keep intact was the floor tile, as it was replaced recently and was still in pristine condition. We designed a vanity with a natural walnut finish, topped with honed black granite, that had the same footprint as the previous one. The new vanity supported the warm tones in the existing tile and also allowed us to forgo any changes to the existing floor.
When our client fell in love with this hand-painted cement tile, from Saltillo Tile in Calgary, we knew that we had to subtly work it into the design. We used it as the backsplash over the vanity to create a graphic pop and finished it off with a chunky black marble pencil tile.
We definitely covered bold when we chose the patterned tile over the vanity so we decided on a more simplistic design with the shower tile. We selected an elongated twist on the classic white subway tile which we staggered vertically. We chose a contrasting grout to give the shower an extra punch and picked matte black plumbing fixtures, from Aquabrass, to tie the look together!
As you can see the shower wall tile is pretty spectacular and we thought it would be a shame to cover it up with a shower curtain. The answer? A glass partition that allowed an abundance of natural light into the shower from the skylight above! We were over the moon with this installation.
The vanity sconce from Restoration Hardware was the brass cherry on top of this classy and sassy bathroom sundae!
Last but certainly not least…We can’t ignore the pig in the room…this fun addition was found by our client while she was shopping and we knew it would be the perfect accessory for this space!
