The bright but lacking guest bedroom before:
There was a loft-like half wall overlooking the stairwell from the guest room before. The contractor transformed that into a full wall framed in the bathroom per our design:
Once the bathroom was all framed and drywall was up and the plumbing, electric and mudding was complete the fun began. Our DIY contribution was all painting, 80 sq. ft of frosted glass subway tile, 16 sq. ft of river rock pebbles and 60 sq. ft of porcelain floor tiles... we became quite proficient with the wet saw and mortar.
We had chosen this chocolate brown for the guest room over a year ago, and I thought we may change our minds with the new layout, but we bought another gallon and as we completed the walls I started to get that homey, comforted feeling and knew it was the beginning to a cozy master bedroom.After - the most relaxing modern bathroom and master bedroom we could have imagined:Light fixture: Ikea Cesium Ceiling Spotlight Vanity: Ikea Godmorgon with Braviken SinkFrosted Ocean Grey subway tile from 360Flooring Lamps and pillow from Urban Outfitters & bedding from West Elm Bed, mirror, dog cushions and side tables from Ikea.
