One Room Challenge Main Bathroom Reveal!

It’s DONE! Eight weeks (or 12 years) in the making, our primary bathroom has been renovated and I’m so excited to finally share it with you! It’s been quite a ride. Being a featured designer of the One Room Challenge has been on my career bucket list for years, and I’m so honored to have done this and end with an amazing bathroom to show for it! I’m crazy proud of this, friends. Renovating is no joke! And doing it online for the world to see definitely adds to the pressure of it all. Oh, and let’s throw in four kids and a crazy dog and a senior graduating and items not arriving on time. How does the saying go? Blessed, not stressed? Ummm… I was definitely blessed and stressed. Lol. You can get caught up on the process, here:


So, here’s how this is gonna roll. I’m going to show a “before” image, followed by an “after” of the same view, and then we’ll discuss and I’ll share sources. Sound good? Are you sitting down for this?













Can. We. Take. A. MOMENT? Is this real life? And where do I even begin? I guess let’s start with reworking the layout of this bathroom. The huge corner tub ate up so much space. Ripping that out and putting both vanities on one wall freed up space to place a big, fabulous clawfoot tub along the back wall. It’s amazing. And as my contractor says, now we have a big dance floor in the middle:) So much space! Both the tub and the vanities are from Build With Ferguson, as is this new shower door!

One thing I wanted out of this bathroom, and any space I design, really, is a good mix of modern and traditional elements. And I love that the shower door is a whole vibe of modern and sleek in a room with a vintage-inspired clawfoot tub. It just works, and I love it.

Speaking of the shower, let’s talk about this tile from The Tile Shop! Bianco Puro, a classic 2×8 honed marble was the way to go for the walls, and I paired it with Hampton Hermosa, a marble mosaic that has just the touch of black, on the floors…

The real showstopper though, is the Saltus tile used in the shower niches!

I mean, when I found tile that looks like wallpaper, I knew it was the start of something special. And with all of the black and white happening in the room, I decided to warm things up with the Truewood Beige “wood” tile on the floors. It did just the trick! This room is both classic and modern, simultaneously, and the look of wood on the floors really keeps things cozy.

I love that we swapped the one large builder-grade mirror for two sleek black mirrors from Varaluz. Simple, but stunning.

Art is from Chaos and Wonder

Let’s talk lighting! It’s one of my favorite design choices to make in any room design I come up with! The jewelry of a room, if you will. Lighting is your chance to take a room from good to WONDERFUL, and this room is no exception! The wall sconces are from Hudson Valley Lighting, and I love the traditional pleated shade on them! The perfect combo of black and gold…

The pendant light over the tub is from Shades of Light, and truth be told, I’ve had my eye on it for years. So happy to finally have the perfect spot for it! Such a statement, right?

Next up is this super cool tuxedo light, also from Shades of Light, in the water closet!

I love the brass detail and the back stripe along the bottom. It’s such a cool shape and looks amazing with the wallpaper from Calico Corners! As I talked about in last week’s post, I chose this wallpaper because I loved the organic quality of the handwriting and how it looked like an old love letter.

Emtek Square Tubular Pocket Door Latch

The pocket door was custom made locally and I’m thrilled to incorporate a full length mirror in this way. I pulled a mossy green from the tapestry and art, and decided on the color Palm Leaf by Sherwin Williams. I love it. Makes my color loving heart happy. And the sleek brass Emtek hardware is from Ebay! You guys, SO MUCH of this space is from Ebay! I’ll get to all of it as I go through everything, but holy cow did I have fun shopping for this bathroom on that site! First and foremost, let’s make our way to the other door in this space, also painted Palm Leaf by Sherwin Williams. I also found this 19th century salvaged door on Ebay, guys! Just search “salvaged arch door” and you’ll find tons of similar ones.

This door leads to our closet, and we had it installed with barn door hardware so it can slide open. The stunning Bristol Crystal doorknobs are also Emtek from Ebay.

More Emtek in this space… I swapped the hardware on the vanities for these globe knobs and these hammered ring pulls. The quality of this hardware is just so good. Heavy, durable, and beautiful!

I spy a beautiful new Jaden rug from Arhaus! I was totally drawn to the warm, neutral, traditional design of it. It’s soft under foot, and the perfect rug to ground this whole pace.

Also from Arhaus is the Umbria vase. I love the scale and rusticity of it. Nothing pulls a room together like fresh branch clippings, and I knew this vase would be perfect for that!

Can we talk about what it’s sitting on? It’s another Ebay find, and it is glorious. Search “lucite pedestal” and you’ll find similar ones.

Check out the new window treatment! I’m SO HAPPY to streamline this window and have a custom shade from Calico Corners! Friends, they are so helpful and they do it all. Someone from Calico Corners came to our house to accurately measure the window, then they made it for us (so well done) and they came back to install! It’s perfect! And I’m thrilled because I wasn’t sure if it would stick out from the window since our window is pretty shallow, but it’s almost fully flush. Just great attention to detail. The fabric is the Fetu 811 Stingray. I wanted a classic check and the colors really speak to the rug. You can see how I painted the window panes black using Frog Tape® by clicking HERE.

Frog Tape® definitely came to my rescue for this project, as my painter bailed on me at the last minute and I ended up pulling all-nighters to paint it myself! I’m a messy painter, guys. Frog Tape® kept things clean and easy!

Peep that arch molding, friends! You guysssssss. I’m over the moon about how this idea in my head turned out. Using corbels from Novo Building Products, my contractor made this whole thing! He knocked it out of the park. I mean, it really takes the whole room to the next level. It’s unique and custom, classic and special. And it pairs so beautifully with the beams on the ceiling! Also from Novo Building Products (along with the baseboards and ceiling trim in the water closet). I didn’t mess around when it came to the height of this stuff, guys. The bigger the better!

Alright, let’s get to the epic faucets from Axor, shall we? Talk about high end.

Obsessed. The bridge faucet in brushed brass is utter perfection. Looks so good with the marble countertops, and honestly, I was totally drawn to the “hot” and “cold” labels on the levers! So classic!

Listen, I’ve never been a bath person, and this Axor Montreux tub faucet alone is about to change that.

Sadly, the Axor shower faucet didn’t arrive in time to get installed (literally getting installed tomorrow!), but here’s an image of it! I can’t WAIT to use it!

Ok, let’s discuss some finishing details from Ebay that totally make the space. Nothing excites me more than sourcing the small details that really tell a story and pull the room together with color. Let’s start with THE TAPESTRY. It looks like a scene right out of Beauty and the Beast and that thrills me. If you search “verdure tapestry” you’ll find similar ones. A tapestry is woven art, so it totally adds an element of texture to the space. And you all know I’m a sucker for good portrait paintings (see my powder room HERE). I couldn’t resist layering this print on the ledge above the arches. She just oozes confidence. I think she’s fabulous! And the muddy greens in her dress read so well with the pocket door and closet door color!

One tip I have for making spaces special is to think of how to use old things in unconventional ways. I bought this ashtray from Ebay and decided to use it for qtips!

I love everything on this vanity. The onyx trinket box came all the way from France, and that cute brass tub is so cute as a soap holder!

That super pretty soap is from Shop House of Brinson! Smells so good!

This David on a pedestal is just so cool. It’s huge! I went to college at the University of Toledo, and the art classes were attached to the Toledo Museum of Art. I love all of my spaces to have touches of museum-like qualities. Livable and comfortable, but with pieces that take me back to the hours of roaming that museum. I was married there:)

This leather stool was the perfect casual seat to go by the tub. I foresee Zane wanting to resort back to baths now that we have this fancy tub, so this seat will come in handy.

One thing that caught me off guard? Tearing up when I stood back and looked at the styled tub tray. It looks like a high end spa/hotel and I’ve just dreamed of this space for so long that this little detail got me. Everything on the tray is from Shop House of Brinson and it’s all exquisite! Just the prettiest details, and the soaps and candle smell divine! This is what a bathroom should smell like!

This space is somewhat inspired by Little Women! Love the whole vibe of this book and movie!

I’ve had my eye on these sculptural nesting vases ever since seeing them at High Point Market. Thrilled to find them on Ebay, and the green looks great near the closet doors!

These prints are from Chaos and Wonder on Etsy.

Check out that new outlet from Buster & Punch! It’s got USB plugs to charge your phone! I couldn’t resist. They have amazing toggle switches and I ordered a black one for the water closet…

Totally random thing to share, but I also ordered this free standing toilet paper holder from Ebay! I didn’t want to bother drilling holes into the wallpaper. And hooray for having a constant backup supply of toilet paper. Lol!

One last thing from Ebay that’s seriously rocking my world right now are these clear, plastic drawer organizers. I’ve dreamt of organized makeup for years! This has been awesome!

Extra images…

Did I miss anything? Holy cow, that was so much to cover! I am SO incredibly grateful to Linda of Calling It Home for choosing me to participate in this, and to all of the sponsors for making my vision come to life! This was so much work, friends, but I LOVE what I do. Sleepless nights with visuals running through my head and all. It would mean the world if you left a comment and let me know what your favorite part is! Anything surprise you? Thank you so much for following along and cheering me on along the way!

    I think this is probably the best before and after I have ever seen. Your bathroom is absolutely beautiful.

  25. Jo J. says:

    I found you thru Emily Henderson – and I am gobsmacked at what you’ve done. This is such vision; the most inspiring transformation I have ever seen. I love that you gave all your sources too and that so many were unexpected (ebay??). The tapestry does it for me – hard to make a clinical bathroom space feel warm and cosy, but the tapestry is such an awesome jumping off point to change that. Brava!

  26. Linda says:

    The bathroom is amazing! My favorite 2 things ok 3
    are the bathtub, that wallpaper and the green doors also the star pendant light

  27. Jane says:

    Beautiful bathroom. I love the gothic arched millwork.

  28. Paula says:

    Literally stunny… every single thing.. enough said ❤️ oh but any chance you could share details/specifics of how the arches wall ledge was made? I’ve got to know…my life depends on it 😉❤️❤️❤️

  29. Paula says:

    Literally stunning…every single thing… enough said ❤️… Oh , but any chance you could share details/specifics of how the arches wall shelf ledge was made? I’ve got to know… my life depends on it 😉❤️❤️❤️

    • Haneen says:

      Lol! Thank you, so glad you like it! My carpenter built this, so I’m not sure of specifics, to be honest! But it’s two corbels facing each other (with a small wood piece in between to make it more of an arch than a point) and then a wider piece on top for a bit of a ledge.

  30. Maeci says:

    Hello, I am curious to know what paint colors you used for the trim ?
