Before: Outdated all-white traditional master bathroom.

Before: Lights over full-width mirror, white cabinets and white tile countertop. Very pretty, but very dated.

Before: Lights over full-width mirror, white cabinets and white tile countertop. Very pretty (and very expensive) for the 1980s and 1990s. There’s no contrast, no personality!

The French country master bathroom retreat was inspired by the Homeowners’ vacation in Provence. They were tired of the all-white bathroom,  popular with builders in the late 1980s and into the 1990s. Their remodeled bathroom has a warm color palette, with a romantic corner pedestal tub, custom walnut “furniture” lavatories. It also has oiled-bronze plumbing and a two-person steam shower. Their new bathroom features three different (coordinating) stones, including slabs on the floor that have fossil skeletons.

This bathroom one one regional and one national award.
