Project by: Amanda Elmore
Location: Austin, Texas
Amanda showed us the hall bathroom in her Austin condo that she took from outdated and pink to sleek and modern. We've got her master bathroom remodel for this post to show you, and it's just as lovely of a makeover!
As Amanda explained in her hall bathroom post:
My condo was built in 1963 and the two bathrooms had the original dusty pink tiles, low ceilings and outdated everything. The baths are back to back and I had a leak behind one of the tubs that I couldn't get to without demoing the tile in both baths, so after 16 years I decided to fix the leak and try to make the rooms feel larger and more efficient. It took about three months and 20k to make it happen. I wanted the bathrooms to reflect two sides of myself...each bath had a piece of artwork that served as an inspiration and launching pad for the colors and feel.
The master is more feminine with marble hex tiles, a soaking tub and subway tile with dark grout. I used a Sherwin Williams white called "Marshmallow" that has a wonderful pink undertone that keeps the bath from being so white that it feels sterile or like a hospital.
Master Bathroom Resources:
- Colors by Sherwin Williams: Walls, Marshmallow and Snowbound for trim
- LED bath bar from Sonneman, dimmable
- Vanity: Ikea kitchen uppers (great for my small space as they were only 12" deep)
- Custom cut honed marble top
- Ikea lillangen sink
- Floors: Marble hex
- Tub: Kohler Archer soaking tub
- Restoration Hardware: Parisian Architectural Banque Pendant, towel bar and toilet paper holder
