The time has finally come, my friends.
After five years of cringing at my master bathroom every time I step foot in it (which is quite taxing on my Botox), I finally get to do something about it.
My first major project of 2020 is a full-blown master bath remodel, and today I am sharing the design plans.
My 1980’s Bathroom Before:
When we first stumbled upon the listing of our 1980’s fixer upper half of a decade ago, one thing was quite apparent..
While all of the main living areas were spacious and open-concept (filled with natural light), the bathrooms were quite the opposite.
Wanting this house to be more about family and entertaining, however, I was willing to overlook our lackluster bathing accommodations. In fact, I overlooked them to such an extent that I didn’t even bother painting the walls.
For five years, I focused on updating the rest of the home, while also doing my best to ignore the fact that my master bathroom didn’t even have a damn window (and you guys know just how much I love me some natural light).
All of that changed when, this summer, we had to replace all of the windows on the front elevation of our home.
While the window company was at work replacing all of the existing windows, I went ahead and had them install a window opening over the Jacuzzi tub. Then , the inevitable domino effect transpired…
Master Bath Progress:
The once simple window install evolved into a full-blown bathroom remodel including the demolition of a wall, shower and all new plumbing (this process has been going on since November).
And now that all of the demo has been accomplished, it’s time to get to the fun part…selecting all of the design elements of my “modern/organic/farmhouse/boho” retreat.
When I first saw this design by Studio McGee, I was captivated by the simplicity of it all. Not only did I love the timelessness of the subway tiles and the spa vibes of the turkish towels, I knew I had to have matte black hardware in my own bathroom.
Not quite sure that our 1980’s fixer upper will be our forever home, I want to select finishes that will stand the test of time and appeal to a wider demographic of potential buyers. I am not trying to be a ground-breaking trendsetter here.
All of that being said, I do want to have a smidge of fun.
In the photo above, Becki Owens proves that a space can be super serene and classic while not falling completely flat. Through the use of a more intricate flooring motif, the all-white space is given a bit more character.
With all of this taken into consideration, I devised a design board for the space directly below. All of the source links are included in the caption of the design board .

While I have not finalized the chandelier or the art yet, everything else has been ordered. I will also be sharing the DIY tutorials associated with this remodel in separate posts (we have already devised some pretty cool hacks for this space).
I can’t wait to share the finished product with you!
Thank you so much for stopping by, and I hope your new year is off to a great start.
Now get out there and design some good vibes and a fabulous life.
