Coastal Inspired Bath






 
  

I thought I'd share a few photos of our Master Bath.

We did some improvements last year.  We didn't change our shower which is quite roomy with classic white tile but we did remove the door leading into our small bath which made the wall available to hang up our towels which we desperately needed!  We ripped out the white tile floor and added heated marble floors, which we almost didn't do but now highly recommend! We continued the marble as trim around the door opening.  We also added beadboard to the ceiling and 4 new recessed lights.

I bought the vintage wire hanging basket at The Alameda Pointe Antiques and Collectibles Fair and filled it with sea sponges, loofahs, body brushes and bath mitts.  My friend Kathysue at Good Life of Design "sale alerted" me about the annual white sale last month at Neiman Marcus where I stocked up on fluffy white bath towels which included a beautiful complementary monogram!  I found the fabulous vintage, cast iron dolphin (la dolfina) at a thrift store in Pacific Grove and used him to decorate the back of the toilet and topped it off with a coral ceramic plaque by Fringe that I scored at Tuesday Morning.  I found the lovely and unusual ginger jar at Neiman Marcus, priced very reasonably, which inspired me to paint the walls chocolate brown.

Love the brown walls, one of my favorite colors. ( I painted my kitchen the same color.) All of your accessories are just stunning. I love that gorgeous ginger jar. So pretty. Hugs, Marty
