Beautiful bathrooms. I can just imagine looking in the mirror in the morning and being able to see the outdoors in the window behind you. I love the skylight too.

The hexagonal tile is really pretty in the second bathroom. How large is your neo angle shower? Are there pony walls on both sides and how wide , how deep and how tall are the pony walls?

The brown tile on the diagonal is a nice contrast to the orange walls. Orange is my favorite color and the the dark brown and orange look great together.
Beautiful job and you did 3 of them!

Hoboken, they all look fanastic. Your subject line made me wait and open a few other posts first--kinda like saving a nice present.

All three are so different, your head must have been spinning, keeping things straight! I'm having a hard time with the details of one bathroom remodel.

The tub in you MB takes the cake. AWE. SOME.

Three thumbs up.

I am so glad you are posting these. I adore your master bath. Your other baths are so different, color wise, than your MB, I love that about your project. Each bath has it's own identity, so to speak. Will you post your elements in each room? I hope to find out the paint colors and the tile selections, especially that tile on the floor of you MB. A close up of your downstairs bath would be nice too:)

Fabulous job!

They are all different but equally lovely! I like all your showers very much and the wall color in #3 is sweet! What is the counter in your Master and the wall tile please? Thanks and congrats.

Ok, here are the details.

All tile from Artistic Tile.
Wall and floor tile is a porcelain wannabe. I think it's one of the best i've seen. It's called Exedra Calacutta. Floor is in 18 x 18s on the diagonal and the wall tile is 9 x 18 brick laid.

The feature tile is Danse Lucido Vetromarmi collection water jet tile with glass and calcutta marble.

The glass subways are Pavarotti Pearl.

The vanity is the 72" British Cane vanity from Modern bath.

The top is Carrara marble which came with the vanity. I thought it would clash horribly with the calcutta tile, but we actually really like the contrast and will probably keep it.

The tub is a Victoria & Albert lava stone soaking tub.

Toilet is the Toto Soirée one piece.

The wall color is Benjamin Moore Moonshine.

Light fixtures from


Vanity was already there - we repainted it 'Wenge' and put in two Toto sinks and Costa Esmarelda granite.

Floor is Crema Marfil and Dark Emperador hexagons. They sell it at Avalon Tile but we got ours from for way less. I just LOVE it. The shower floor is crema marfil hexagons and the wall tile is a simple crema marfil 12 x 12 both from Garden State Tile.

Toilet is another Toto Soirée.

Wall color is Benjamin Moore Oatmeal.


Reused vanity painted white, added Toto sinks and a polished limestone counter top.

Floor is a porcelain slate effect red/ brown 12 x 12 which we had bought a ton of to do our sun room and then never used. It was super cheap at $1.99/ sqft. We laid it staggered on the diagonal.

Wall tile is Adex off white crackle subway from Garden State Tile.

The tub is the Kohler Devonshire.

Wall color is Sherwin Williams Autumnal.

We plan to put a fun and funky chandelier in this bathroom just to add a little more fun.

I figure it could be toned down in the future by painting it a quieter color, but for the baby's room we love it!

Again, three more beautiful bathrooms! I wondered where the pumpkin wall colour came from, what an inspired choice, and then I saw the glass tile in the tub alcove!

Seeing your adept use of feature walls is reminding me how much I like them when I see them done well, and of course, now has be re-thinking my tile order! LOL

I have a question about the faucet location for the tub in your Master Bath. Do you have to climb into the tub to turn them on? I was assuming I'd have to place mine in a corner for access, and there are not as many choices in the Bain Ultra with drains at the end...

Thanks, Rae

The wall color in bath 3 actually came first, it's the exact color of some of the veining in the limestone countertop. Then when we decided to use that floor tile and decided to keep the wall color. The tile in the niche was an accidental find and the colors are absolutely perfect with the floor.

We do not have to get into the tub to turn on the faucet! It's actually quite easy to turn on and that's with our tub having a flared top. I guess just test it out with your tub? Ours lived in the basement for a while before install so we had a chance to practice various faucet options. I think these tubs are mainly designed for floor mount faucets, but I am not crazy about them and they are super expensive.

nice bathrooms!
i'm sure you probably know this, but in case you don't-- make sure you seal/keep sealed the crackle tile---i loved it when we were redoing a bathroom, but decided not to use it when i saw there were warnings with putting it in 'wet' areas- i guess mold/mildew has the tendency to grown in the crackles... keeping it sealed i think can help prevent it.

For the upstairs guest bathroom, is there any chance you recall where you purchased the orange and turquoise pattern shower curtain? We just started painting our guest bath an orange color (mesa sunrise) and I think that shower curtain would be awesome. Thanks!

Hobo - you are amazing and that master bath - wow!!
We are just thinking of doing ours - they need it but over spent on the kitchen so in a long planning stage.
I want that tile in my new bath so will have to clip your post!

Zowie (maybe I should change my handle to Zowie from a2gemini)
