While not totally her taste, Meaghan's bathroom was functional. The tile floor had been cracking though, so she waited until it was time to replace it to brighten up the rest of the space and add her own touches.

From Meaghan:

There was nothing functionally wrong with our bathroom and it was generally nice to look at, so we did not really need to do a complete remodel. The tile floor, however, was starting to break and crack because of an improperly installed subfloor by the previous owners. My love of marble and white walls is just getting stronger and I knew that once I convinced my husband that the floor was dying to be redone, we would embark on a "while we're at it" remodel. We stayed within a budget by keeping the existing tub and layout and I searched and searched for uncoated brass hardware that wouldn't break the bank. We did the majority of the work ourselves and hired out the tile work, as screwing up with carrara marble tiles would have been a large budget buster. I had a lightbulb moment concerning the curiosity shelves, and kept to a glass, metal, brass and vintage palette. We love the end result and how well the room ties in with the rest of our space.

Thank you, Meaghan!
