Courtney & John’s bathroom was the height of ’80s glamour: a Jacuzzi tub AND a gold trimmed shower? Choosing not to live in a Gordon Gekko fever dream, they stripped the bathroom down and opted for a space that played up the historic interest of their new home.

From Courtney & John: For basic necessity, the master bathroom was the first space that needed to be tackled FAST in order for us to move into this foreclosure property. Our main priorities were to open the room up, bring back some historic, architectural interest and finish it off with a bold pop of color.

First, we removed the existing Jacuzzi tub that was taking up nearly half the floor space. With a lot more square footage to work with, we created a full walk-in shower finished with 6×6 subway tile, a privacy wall for the toilet, and added a vintage claw foot tub that I found on Craigslist and refinished in a matte black. John created interest and detail by joining the double windows in a decorative trim which acts as a picture frame for the claw foot as well. Then, we chose a deep, dramatic blue paint color for the walls to highlight the freshly painted trim, exposed ceiling beams and original, oak hardwood floors.

Thank you, Courtney & John!
