This master bathroom was perfectly fine, but certainly not in keeping with the rest of Studio DIY’s vibrantly playful, creative, fun, and always-intriguing design sensibility. This one is definitely not a minimalist, monochromatic makeover.

Studio DIY turned an ordinary bathroom into something undeniably fabulous. The green tile on its own is utterly glorious, a lush color that would be the statement in many bathrooms. But Studio DIY takes things a step further with the pink floor, sinks, and light. Yes, pink sinks! Bathroom projects often involve removing colorful fixtures, so it’s always thrilling to see them being installed, especially with such a clean, modern take on colorful sinks. Pink and green are almost always wonderful together, and this particular combination is especially delicious.

On a similar note, it’s common to see woodwork in this hue removed, re-stained, or painted—for example, the original vanity in this bathroom. Adding a vanity with a warm honey tone is an unusual choice that works perfectly, creating a sort of tropical, vintage vibe. The hue of the wood works quite well with all of the brass accents, creating a luxurious glow.

Once again, this bathroom is nice. Gray floors, white fixtures and walls, built-in storage, and a cool slanted ceiling.

This is a spectacularly green, tropical getaway to indulge in every day. The new window bathes the splendidly glazed tile in dreamy light, revealing the depth of the various green hues. A walk-in shower has a much more open, accommodating feeling than the in-bath shower did, and the glass wall allows the space to flow better than the shower curtain did while providing crucial views of the tile. Playful pom-pom baskets continue the colorful, island vibe, while organizing and concealing essential, but less-than-display-worthy items.

The green wall tile is Secret Lagoon zellige (terra cotta) tile and the floor is Hex Clip cement tile, both from Clé, and the rug is vintage. The vanity is by George Oliver from Wayfair, with brass and marble Anthropologie knobs. Studio DIY has all of the other resources.

Here’s the toilet and an oddly placed and proportioned window. All natural light is a good thing, but this window isn’t ideal.

The new window fits into the space much better and allows the perpendicular wall to display a fabulous art print by Justina Blakeney of Jungalow, which appears to have been custom-made for the new bathroom.

Thank you, Studio DIY!
