Kendra, of Flora Poste Studio, is a graphic and textile designer who creates fabric, invitations, signage and packaging for her clients. She lives in a house built in 1920. Faced with a recent bathroom remodel Kendra wanted it to be a modern take on the time period. See how she renovated the space, while maintaining the feel of a vintage home.

The biggest move was knocking out a wall and adding three precious feet to the bathroom, which doesn't sound like a lot, but when the original room is only three feet wide, it makes a huge impact on the space.

She installed timeless white subway tile and Cararra marble countertops, along with semi-custom cabinetry and vintage-style fixtures. But the best part is how Kendra decided to keep her bathroom's history:

From Kendra:When Dave was removing the old blue tile, he found a treasure underneath, amazing fish wallpaper from the 50s! Unfortunately it was stuck directly to the plaster and difficult to remove or preserve in any way but we took tons of photographs and I was able to take off a few pieces and framed this one for the wall:
