Ask Trove: Creating A Bathroom You Love
In so many of the homes we've featured on the journal, the bathrooms are often overshadowed by grand entryways, living rooms or formal dining rooms. Not that those spaces don't deserve to shine, but we think these bathroom sanctuaries should get a little time in the spotlight as well! From clean white and timeless, to funky and playful, each bathroom has its own unique personality.
Your bathroom is the place where you spend time each morning preparing and getting yourself ready for the day. Why not make it a space that feels calm, tranquil and helps you center yourself for the day ahead?
This beautiful master bathroom belongs to a talented local designer who always seems to effortlessly pull together the most swoon-worthy spaces. Kelly chose to create a classic airy feel with creamy walls, Carrara marble counter tops and sleek lucite drawer pulls that float against white cabinetry for a dreamy touch.
The faucets and fixtures she chose are part of the Kohler Purist Collection which features clean, timeless lines. The polished chrome finish accents the cool tones in the marble countertop beautifully, don't you think? Fresh eucalyptus stems bring texture and a calming fragrance. Whenever you add fresh flowers or greenery, we think it gives your bathroom that spa-like feeling!
Mirrored medicine cabinets with wood framed fronts are a great storage solution that doubles as a striking decor element. They draw your eye upward and add so much warmth to this crisp, clean space.
The cabinetry is painted Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore (if you're looking for the perfect white, this is your go-to!) and she added this amazing vintage runner to pull in tons of texture, color and character. Kelly loves to mix old with new and create a high-low look with a clean overall palette and touches of antique charm.
Delilah is one of our lovely customers whose home we recently featured on the Journal (if you missed it, you can check it out here). Her master bathroom is equal parts playful and tranquil and we couldn't resist sharing a few photos! Sleek, modern drawer pulls embellish classic white cabinetry that's contrasted by lots of pattern throughout the rest of the space. They chose this beautiful ceramic tile that mimics a monochromatic fleur de lis and adds tons of visual interest and movement. Delilah isn't afraid to try something different and we think this bold botanical wallpaper brings in such a unique element!
This re-purposed accent chest is ideal for extra bathroom storage painted in a creamy charcoal and finished with a few panels of wallpaper for a cohesive look. The shelves are filled with cozy guest towels and some Trove accessories which add a little color! The walls are painted this beautiful slate blue by Sherwin Williams which we think is absolutely the perfect bathroom shade that feels relaxing and current.
Delilah's half-bath is probably the most fun use of a small space that we've seen in a long time! This amazing black and white Trove yak print adds so much personality and draws your eye into the room as you walk past. As a guest at one of Delilah's awesome dinner parties, this simple round frameless mirror creates the perfect little spot to refresh your hair and makeup before heading back to enjoy the evening! This simplistic, small-scale vanity with a smooth white ceramic sink top is all this bathroom needs to feel complete.
This amazing powder room has all the highs and lows that Kelly loves to incorporate in the spaces she designs. She chose to take a few risks in this space like this black and white buffalo check cement tile from Clé. A simplistic wood and marble vanity adds warmth and blown glass globe sconces in a toasty bronze finish bring in a modern element.
Classic white shiplap adds just enough texture without overpowering the small space and as Kelly mentioned, it will never go out of style! When it comes to accessories, she keeps it simple with a few sprigs of green and makes sure to include all of the essentials so her guests feel comfortable.
If you have a bathroom like Kelly or Delilah's that feels like a getaway, you know just how much they can improve the comfort of your home. If your space is looking a little less than inspiring these days, stop in and see how Trove can help you pull it together! No matter the space, from bathrooms to bedrooms, dining rooms and everything in between, our team loves helping you create a home you love!
