The bathtub is great too! Is that a renovation, or a new tub? Can you give specifics please.

Who makes the cabinets and what's the style name? (Is Carrera something to do with that or no?) Beautiful. :)

So cool I thought they might be RH cabinets.

For window..if it were me =)..definitely white shutters. I would take them only halfway up. Or maybe white roman shades..half shutters with roman shade on top? Or even shades made out of natural material like grassy/reed stuff.

So beautiful.

Okay how about a bamboo woven roman shade. Does anyone know any good websites for ordering these? I need ones that go both up and down. Here's my inspiration picture for the bathroom. I think I did a apretty good job copying it :)

hi pps7!

That is one gorgeous bathroom. Congratulations on putting it all together. May I ask the brand of the chrome faucets with the hot and cold labels? Love them and the whole setup. Were the countertops custom made from carrara slabs?

Thank you for sharing the pictures!

pps7 I love it!

I was going to recommend Smith + Noble, but it seems their website is down. I hope it's just a server issue! They have exactly the type of look you want in many shades and textures. I've ordered from them before. I hope they didn't go out of business..I just received a catalog from them with a whole house measure for free (no purchase required) and $99 install.

Thanks karena! The vanity faucets are from rohl's country bath collection. The countertops were custom made. I hope that helps.

Shoelvy, I'm going to check out jcpenny this weekend-they are having a sale. If that doesn't work I'll check out that website. Thanks!

Hi pps7,

BEAUTIFUL!
Two questions, first what is the tile in the shower and second does the fact
that both of the faucet handles turn counter clockwise bother you?
We have the same faucets and a guest tried to turn the cold on the wrong way
and actually rotated the whole stem.

Sorry - one more question - is that the Memoirs 24" sink? I'm trying to decide if we should get the L or S Cartwright (I see you got the Large) for the 24" Memoirs pedestal we just bought. Love all your selections! Tx!

What is the height of your wainscoting and where did you get it?

PPS- I have to tell you, I look at your pictures several times a day and everyday I figure out something else i can incorporate in my remodel! I have ordered your medicine cabinet, picked out your paint and today I decided to ask my contractor to do the wood trim on the walls instead of beadboard. Fabulous job!!!!!

The tile is AO catarina white. I think our shower is 4x5.

pps7, I am drooling over your bathroom. It is simply stunning!

How deep are your vanities? I am considering the Memoirs sink myself, but worry that it may dwarf the 42" x 21" deep vanity I would put it in.

I LOVE this bathroom. You did a beautiful job!!

I have a few questions, I'm not too familiar with pricing, so how would the floor and shower marble you put in, compare with a subway tile? I thought subway tile was relatively cheap and the marble was expensive, though I did see some similar marble in the home depot the other day - Was that junk tile?

Are your floors slippery? Looks like they could be when wet.

I'd LOVE to recreate your bath in my home!! Need to figure out if I can afford it.

Thanks!

Thank you for the kind words! I must say, my bathroom may be my favorite room in our house! Finally got accessories and can say it's DONE!

rem1970, our vanity is the standard 21" deep x 54" wide. It was a bit tight, they had to remove the 4" marble backsplash otherwise the sink and faucet wouldn't fit. But I love the memoirs sink and it was worth it.

sparks72, our tile is not real marble, it's porcelain- american oleans catarina white tile. It's more expensive than subway but cheaper than real marble. I think to save money you can do subway in the shower with the porcelain tile mosiac band as an accent. It's not slippery at all b/c it's in a matte finish.

I hope this helpful!

I can't believe it. It looks real from the pictures. Probably much easier to take care of too.

I'm going to see this AO tile in person at a tile shop this weekend.

Also, how did they do the walls? Is that just trim board?

I went to a tile shop today and got a sample of the AO catarina.
Couple questions for you:

Did you do the matte on the floor and the polished look on the shower walls?

Did you also use the AO small square tiles on the shower floor?

The rep at the tile shop pretty much talked me out of the carrera vanity top due to the possibility of staining. We decided on a white silestone. I prefer the look of the carrera though.

pps7

yup, that's exactly what we used: matte on floor, polished on wall, small square on floor and as an accent.

I would reconsider the carrera. I was scared too. We are not careful people at all and ours has held up fine after one year. We even have it in our son's bathroom; there is a little stain in his bathroom, but I think it's something only I would notice. The marble is ALOT cheaper than the silestone or any other alternative.

The only things that are real marble are the counter tops, slab for the bench seat and the shelf in the cubbies.

pps7, I absolutely love your bathroom. A couple questions if you don't mind.
Is your tub acrylic or cast (if acrylic do you like the feel)
Are your lower walls just painted drywall or wood panels with trim added. What color and finish are the lower walls.

Thanks for the inspirations

Thanks Amy,

The tub is cast iron.
The lower walls are painted drywall. The color is BM simply white- I cna't remember the finish but I think it's satin.

Another question, height of wainscotting? Thanks!!!

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
pps7

the height of the wainscotting is about 5'. The ceiling height is 10' I wanted the wainscotting a little higher, but I decided to line it up with the mosaic accent tile in the shower. Plus, the height worked well b/c it's below our sconces, and hits the medicine cabinet in a good spot.

We just used our window casing material and picked a cap trim piece. The tile cleans up very well. No problems.

I picked cast iron b/c I like the feel of it. Honestly , I only take a bath once every 1-2 months.

Wow, looks lovely! I'm doing my MB almost the same but with black cabinets. Used exactly the same tile in shower (with the black diamond trim) and used the AO Catarina coliseum white on the floor also and got a free standing tub.

Only thing left to do is the vanity tops. I'm leaning towards Cambria Quartz in Whitney but it's a bit price.

How do I post a photo?

pps7,

I originally saw a small glimpse of your bathroom when you posted a pic in the kitchen forum in a thread concerning dark stained cabinets. I was in love from that one little "sneak peak!"

I am so delighted I was able to locate this thread with your entire bathroom. It is so simply understated and elegant. I hope I can pull off something half as beautiful when I redo my bathroom.

Enjoy!!

I've got to say pps7 I was so excited when I came across the pictures of your bathroom a few months ago! It was very similar to what we were looking to do for our main bathroom with the AO Catarina tile, white wainscoting, dark furniture style vanities, and soft blue green walls. It was awesome to see it all put together and have it turn out so good! You did a great job! Our bathroom is smaller and only has a shower/tub combo so I hope we can get the same look in our scaled down version.

PPS7 do you happen to know what the pencil trim is that you have bordering your shower and your mosaic trim in your shower? I don't see pencil trim offered for AO catarina. Your help is greatly appreciated, your bathroom has been an inspiration for many!You should be proud

Pps, I feel like I'm always asking you questions! What are your faucets? I like them. Are they nickel or chrome? Also how Are the marble countertops holdingup after all this time? I'm wondering about the everyday use of products (toothpaste, hair products, etc) in the bathroom.

Thanks!

Marble is holding up great. we are not especially neat people.

Allison,

Shiloh has a furniture vanity line. It does come as a single piece. They are very well made-full extension drawers and soft close. The sides are paneled. They come is a variety of widths- we have the 54". Ours is the espresso finish and the Wyatt door/drawer front. They were on the pricey side, but well worth it. Good luck to you DD!

Here is a link that might be useful: Shiloh vanities
