We are starting some remodeling on the interior of our little house in the country.
The bathrooms will be the first to go....and boy do they need to go.
I have been looking over all of my clippings and design books for the right elements that will work in the small spaces but still feel open and uncluttered.
This is humble house, so I don't think we want to go too overboard with the design.
It should feel vintage but at the same time be modern and clean and
definately not fussy.
These photos of wonderful bathrooms seem to have that certain something.
But in the end,
I decided that the more minimal the design,
more importance will be placed on the fixtures
and the more timeless the end result will be.
These last two photos are the bathrooms of architect Elizabeth Roberts.
She currently lives in Brooklyn, with her family in a restored 1860s brownstone
But do these bathrooms feel right in a home of that age?
I really think they do!
Here are the elements we have purchased for our master bath remodel
Console sinks from Porcher Lutezia Series
we will use two side by side
The faucet sets from Kohler, the Purist Series
The freestanding tub is Randolf Morris
and can be found at Vintage Tub and Bath
The tub filler is also from the Kohler Purist Series
The shower system is from Hansgrohe called Raindance
It has an exposed thermostatic valve and handshower
And sconces from Schoolhouse Electric Co
This is called Rensselaer
The floors will be a honed Carrera or Thassos
in a stacked mosaic or basket weave
something similar to this...
I'm still looking!

I will take some "before" photos this weekend
