So sometimes it can be really difficult to work with family members, but it the opposite for my mom and me. We work very well together. Our style is not exactly the same, but that’s okay. I know what she likes, and I try to help make her home “look like her.” Her style is classic but a little ornate. She appreciates all different design styles and likes to incorporate them all into a room. I think her new bathroom is a refection of that.
I love the floor in this bathroom. The little dot is so classic. The shower and floors are marble. The dots are black granite. I think this helps tie in the black granite she wanted on the countertops. We had the mirrors custom made for the space. The fill the wall between the window and the wall perfectly. We had a very difficult time trying to decide what to do with the tub. It was a huge whirlpool tub before (ugh). This bathroom is HUGE so we decided just to use the space we had and bring the tub out into the middle of the room. They are very happy with the room, and that makes me happy!
Thank you for going through this master bath design process with me. I have finally decided on all the details, and I’m so excited to share them with you!

I hope you like everything I’ve chosen. It definitely took some compromising with my husband to get to this point. We have very different tastes. I think it’s pretty common for husbands and wives to disagree I hope you had a great Fourth of July weekend. Our’s was wonderful!
Do you ever fall in love with something only to find out that’s not available? It happens to me all the time. For example, I wanted to do a black and white checkerboard floor in our master bath. That doesn’t sound too difficult, right? Well, it’s not if I would just accept shiny marble instead of honed, but I just can’t. The look I was going for needed to be softer. Glossy checkerboard in the bathroom looks too much like an entry way to me.
This was my inspiration picture for the bathroom. I love everything about this bathroom from the floors to the walls to the lighting… Wouldn’t you want to take a bath in that tub?
Unfortunately, I just can’t get my hands on tile like that. I even tried to order it some off the internet! Never arrived… At least I just ordered samples and not the the entire amount!
After I grieved the loss of my black and white bathroom for a few days, I got over it and moved on. I was a little worried that I wouldn’t find anything I liked better. BUT I think I have found something! I really, really want to use calacatta marble on the countertops with white cabinets. This really limited me on my floor choices. So here’s what I’ve come up with. I’m really starting to fall in love with this look. I’m a little shocked that I love it so much. I can be very “anit-beige”, but I think it will be so soft and beautiful when completed.
Basically, I like the color of the tile of the first three pictures and the pattern of the last. Here are some tile samples that I found at a store in Tulsa, OK.
Tuscan Pillowed Limestone
French Pillowed Limestone
Provence smooth limestone
Calcatta for countertops
Calcatta honed tile fo the shower.
And this tub.
Time to get to work! Hopefully, I can find everything, and we can get started in the next few months. Hope you had a great weekend!
