It might not be the first thing you are screaming to share with guests that come visit (in a pre or post COVID world)…but I’m pretty jazzed to take you on a mini tour of our bathrooms at #clientmemyselfandicantmakeupmymind!! Today, I’m taking you into our Guest Bath, Powder Room, and Office Bath…and you’ll see a little theme running through these veins. I’ve mentioned this before, but one thing I wanted to do in our home was to use similar materials throughout. Keep scrollin’ and I’ll walk you through all my design decisions and talk through the material selection.
I’m saving our main bathroom and Gwynnie’s bathroom for another time, so stay tuned for more!

True story…we moved into our house the week before the world shut down from COVID. So, sadly, our guest room and bath hasn’t gotten much use…YET! When I was dreaming up this space, I wanted my future guests to feel like they’re having a luxurious getaway in say…Belgium or France…in a fancy farmhouse. I mixed a handful of textures like reeded cabinetry, paneling on the walls, rustic limestone floors…all paired with a clean slab of Calacatta marble on the vanity. It’s my version of the perfect combo of materials…a little upscale, a little rustic. All that said…I sure can’t wait to welcome my first guest…hopefully soon!!
One question I get asked the most is about this vanity and sink!! My heart skipped a beat when it arrived…and this beauty flew in all the way from Belgium. I knew a deep gray soapstone would be the perfect contrast in an otherwise light-toned room, and the bright veining against the gray was just the right amount of mood. Add in a vintage mirror I scored last year and reclaimed brick on the floor in a basketweave pattern…and this little Power Room turned into one of my faves.
Little did we know when we built this house that our office would be one of our most used rooms in 2020. Luckily, we didn’t cut any corners on this bath and I gotta say, I love how it turned out. I wanted cabinetry to be super clean but not boring, so I went with a grooved white oak to add some depth. Since I knew Mike would be primarily using the office (I’m more of a couch/chaise/breakfast nook worker), I wanted to add some masculine elements which led to honed Gris Catalan for the countertops.
Ok, that does it for the bathrooms in #clientmemyselfandicantmakeupmymind. Stay tuned next week for more of the tour!
