New House Bathroom Pictures


Happy 2014!  It's hard to believe we've been in our new house 8 months already. I feel like I did nothing but work like crazy all of 2013.  First it was looking for a home, then getting the mortgage, then getting ready to move, moving in and everything that comes with it. All while making all of Matt's food from scratch and taking care of him. Whew! It seemed like a lot. Now, things are feeling more like home plus a lot of things are done now. I love knowing that once everything is done, that I can relax for a while. 

Here are some pictures of my new bathroom. As a reminder, I purchased a townhome that was built in 1986 but was totally redone when it was purchased by a real estate agent who flipped it.  I always thought I'd be the type to redo things however I must say, it's been great moving in and having everything done already. Well sort of...while everything is mostly new, it was more like moving into a new home since there weren't any towel bars, curtain rods, closet organizers, blinds, etc. 

I think my bathroom is probably one of my favorite rooms. Honestly, this bathroom is so me that I don't think I would have made different selections. They put travertine tile on the shower walls and floor and then did a beautiful dark wood vanity with a travertine marble top.  They used bronze hardware in the sink and tub/shower and had a brown vanity mirror.

To complement this, I added some bronze towel bars, a towel hook, new wastebasket, toilet bowl cleaner and toilet paper holder in bronze. I added some tan/cream towels with a regal design. For the shower curtain, I put up two rods and put the liner inside then added drapery panels outside for a longer, more elegant curtain. Some silk roses in a crystal vase on the counter. I still have to look for a wool rug but that will come later this year. I need to look around a bit. Until then, I have two rugs that were there when I moved in that I'll use for now. The travertine floor is just gorgeous and I love the paint color. They used Benjamin Moore's Bone White as the paint color and used it in my master bedroom. It doesn't photograph very well, but it very pretty. I liked it so much, I've painted the kitchen and hallways the same color and will have the living/dining/foyer painted the same. Basically, the whole house will be this color, lol.








 I hope you enjoy the pictures. I'll try to be a little more timely with the rest of the photos. I just took some pretty kitchen photos this weekend.

Absolutely gorgeous! Elegant and classy. Just enough frills with the roses, crystal and the towels. May I ask where you found them, or the brand?

I think it's nice that the bones of the room was already to your taste, and you just needed to add a few touches to make it yours. Like having a basic black dress and adding your own accessories to make it your own. Can't wait to see more!

Glad you're settling in well and having fun! Happy New Year!

Thank you both! Ladybug-I got the towels and most of the bathroom accessories at Bed Bath and Beyond. I think the brand name was Avanti.

Happy New Year to both of you too!

Beautiful! I have always admired your decorating style. Thanks for sharing the paint color - I'm buying a home that needs every room repainted and was looking for the right neutral. I think Bone White might just be it!
