a direction for the master bathroom

Let me share my design direction for our master bathroom.

My goal for this space is to keep it as timeless as possible. I love the look of white subway tile and how it lends itself to any style – a plus for this traditional, historic home. It’s safe to say marble is going anywhere anytime soon so white Italian carrara was an easy choice for the counter top, end caps, shower shelves, and thresholds. (We actually demo-ed white carrara marble thresholds so I’m happy those will be replaced with what was original to the home.) Deciding to stick with a marble tile on the floor is the only thing that eases my mind about the gorgeous tiles that we had to rip out and even though it’s a little more expensive, we’ll still stay on budget because the white subway tile is so economical ($1.76/sf!)

Most of the items on this inspiration board are definite – vanity, white subway tile, bathroom cabinet – but we still have a few decisions to make – rug (convincing Jason that we should go with a turkish or persian), tile (definitely want herringbone, just need to source it), towels (we’ll choose these toward the end)


What do you think so far?
