Prestine 1960's: that would be the description of this bathroom when I bought my farmhouse. Yellow toilet, sink and shower. Psychedelic flower themed wallpaper. Orange carpet. Yes, carpet in the bathroom, on top of which the toilet sat. Yuck. Hazmat suit for demo? Yes, please. We gutted this bathroom down to the floor joists. We ran new electrical and installed a bathroom fan. We moved the toilet to accommodate a claw foot tub. And we busted down a wall to install a neo-angle glass shower. This was the first full room I remodeled in my house and I chose to go with a very vintage feel. I choose traditional penny tiles for the flooring and pine edge and center bead for the walls and ceiling. I decided to install pedestal sinks with vintage-y chrome faucets. Even though, I don't have as much storage space as I did before with the clunky plywood cabinet, I don't mind. There is something a little gross about storing things long term in a bathroom, don't you think? I choose to tile the shower with white subway tiles and to accent it with a glass tile. The glass shower door and the glass tile add a modern touch to a very vintage bath. I replaced the 1960 brass door knob on the bathroom door with a cast iron and glass replica knob made by a company in NH that has been producing door knobs, shelving brackets and other miscellaneous hardware since the 1890's. I figured the original door knobs from this house that were lost many years ago may have come from this company. It feels a little more like restoration and less like rote remodeling when I can find something from the same period to put back into the house. It brings peace to a house that upon entering looks chaotic - decades of mismatched remodels that don't quiet flow with one another or the original character of the house itself. And in the end, that is my purpose with this house - to right the wrongs of the past and restore it to its original splendor.

This is a newly constructed master bathroom. I went with a vintage feel using hexagon tiles on shower floor and adding a claw foot tub. Dark beadboard cabinetry, glass knobs and carrara marble counters. I was inspired by a recent stay at Watch Hill's newly rebuilt Oceanhouse Hotel in Rhode Island.
Wall paint color is Benjamin Moore Beach Glass.

Love decorating in warm beige and whites through out the farmhouse / cottage.

Everything original 1959 pink bath with pink tub, sink, toilet, pink tile floor, pink tile countertop, and giant window right inside the shower. This bath had one light fixture over the sink, and one over the tub area. Although this hall bath had been well maintained, it needed to be freshened up on a tight budget.
Researched reglazing for the tub, and walls. Replaced the tile floor, vanity, sink, and toilet. Added 4 recessed lights, 2 wall sconces on dimmers. Raised the shower head up by 11 inches and added sprayer.
Now, this bath has all the bells and whistles of a high end bath, and our total spent was right about $1,400.

With the vision for a timeless and luxurious master retreat, the Decor Innovation Designs team selected a neutral colour palate and travertino noce floor,shower and tub surround. Counter tops, tub top with joining shower seat were done in caesarstone quartz Ginger for this master bathroom. By adding the floor tile to the face of the soaking tub adds interest to the floor and helps define the large space.
