From the moment we walked into the master bedroom last October we knew we'd found our house. The views of the water were exactly what we'd dreamed of waking up to each morning. And after these months of renovation we've turned into our dream bedroom.
Muted tones to mirror the low country's subtle, sun-dappled palette. It's refined without being stuffy; our sumptuous sanctuary.
But it didn't look like this initially. This is what it looked like when we first saw the room.
DURING (the mess)
The bones were there. We ripped out that "cabinet" in the corner. We replaced the carpeting and painted everything "Silver Sage" which became the launch point of all the colors and design. I chose shades of watery blues, and soft greens for the bedding and the chairs.
The ensuite bathroom was in need of a total overhaul. It was dated, and pink, and needed to be reworked. There was a enormous pink jetted bathtub. We gutted it all.
We opened up the back wall for a door to my new dressing room. We closed off one of the two doors on the left to the double closet to leave only one door. We created a "potty" room where the old bathtub was.
And the results are beautiful.
The cabinet color is "rain".
Frosted glass privacy door to the "potty" room. This is where the bath tub used to be
Pollished chrome, water glass tile backsplash, quartz countertop.
This was a fun idea that I'm loving. A power drawer where my products stay connected and neatly out of site.
The walk in "cove" shower has no doors and no barrier. Designed for our use as we age. Oversized white subway tiles with pale gray grout. The shower box is framed in the same water glass tile. The floor is river stone.
Heated towel bars.
The final results!
