For this season’s One Room Challenge, hosted by Calling It Home and House Beautiful I am participating as a guest and giving my master bathroom a much needed refresh in 6 weeks. I’m calling it a refresh because it’s not going to be a major renovation. There will not be knocking down walls or tearing out cabinets. Instead, I’ve been really wanting to add some style and personality to the bathroom ever since moving in. It’s got a great foundation already but it’s blah. With some additional projects and styling it’s going to get a whole new look. I’ll be sharing with you all my design ideas and progress updates in the next few weeks starting with this post, which is all about the inspiration! Read on to see where I’m taking this!
Ahh…white on white on white. Love it. Although my cabinets are dark espresso and I don’t plan on changing them I’m still taking cues from the other finishes like white and gray marble, large mirrors, silver hardware and glass shelves beautifully styled. And who doesn’t love a little blue and white chinoiserie?

I’m loving how this traditional bathroom design is very classic and glamorous. It feels like it could be in a luxurious metropolitan hotel. I’m taking note of the marble subway tile to the ceiling, beautiful trim work, glamorous silver hardware and fixtures, and the glass and mirrored niche. The hits of black decor and deep purple flowers only adds to the luxe feel.

Um hello, can we talk about that amazing wall of marble? The pattern creates a stand out focal point. Yes, even bathrooms need focal points. The light fixtures and hardware are also glamorous and traditional in a classic way.

White bathrooms are really popular right now, but espresso cabinets are still a classic choice. I love how clean the lines are in this bathroom and the classic hardware and fixtures. The gray and dark wood palette leans masculine but lends a contemporary look.

Styled out niche over bathtub, check. Cute and chic lantern pendant light over tub, check. Lots of white, marble, and mirrors, triple check. Very classic.

I’m loving how the wallpaper pattern here is so subtle yet adds modern, graphic personality to this bath. The mix of cool tones like white and gray with warm tones like brass and tangerine are spot on. Makes for a modern, classic, and playful space.

My heart beats for this bathroom. I can’t get over that marble tiled backsplash pattern to the ceiling and the soft palette. The warm tones from the espresso cabinets takes away the starkness of an all white bathroom. And isn’t it amazing how flowers can make a space? This space is feminine, modern, classic, and luxurious but not pretentious all at once.

If I had to sum up the design style I’m gravitating towards for the master bath it would be classic modern luxury. But you caught onto that already, right? Stay tuned for more details on my bathroom design plan!
