House Reveal: Master Bathroom

Let’s finish this week with a before and after of the master bathroom.

Here it is in all it’s initial pink glory:

We didn’t do that much to reconfigure the space.  We added all new plumbing and leveled the floor from the sunken tub to make one massive shower.  Next we added a lot of marble and black tile, heated floor mats, white Quartz countertops, and chrome accents.  And here’s the final reveal:

This is the room when we started:

House Reveal: Nursery

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.  We had a great Thanksgiving with friends, scored some great finds on Black Friday, and had a low-key first Christmas for Zoe.  The best is that we were able to focus on those last finishing touches for the house and finally had them photographed.  So to get this year started, let’s spend a few days doing a house reveal.  A few months ago, I did a before and (almost) after series but this will be much better! So let’s start with the nursery because (1) it is the best room in the house and (2) it makes me very happy.

Here is the room when we moved in:

MLS22It was a basic and large room.  It was also one of the least offensive rooms in the house.  But we took it from basic to this:

The first thing we did was skim coat all the walls and ceiling, install dark hardwood floors, add new windows, and remove the mirrored closet doors.  Then the window wall, ceiling, and closet were painted a pale pink.  (I discussed the inspiration for this room here).

We repurposed a dresser and added these wonderful animal & baby prints to the wall.

We then added other fun accessories to complete the room – a monogrammed changing table runner, pink knobs on the drawers and hamper, pink tassel curtains for the closet, book ledges, and a great cowhide patchwork rug from our babymoon in Brazil.  Most importantly, there is a great orange dog bed for Nala (to be harassed by Zoe during the day).

Zoe's Nursery - Joy Street Design - www.joystreetdesign.com Zoe's Nursery - Joy Street Design - www.joystreetdesign.comI LOVE this room! It’s a room I would have died to have as a kid.  I also think Zoe’s quite smitten with the room – when she’s being changed, you can often find her stroking the wallpaper. 🙂

The best part is that I don’t think the room is a “baby’s room.”  Sure it’s a nursery and it’s definitely very girly, but once she’s out of the crib, she can easily transition into the daybed without us needing to change anything.  Let’s hope she agrees until she’s eighteen (or in boarding school…ha)!
