Inspired by how well the vintage vanity in the guest bathroom turned out, Brandon and Jen decided to repurpose a 1970s dresser as their master bathroom vanity. They kept the original green paint job so they just had to fit it for plumbing and add the sinks.
In this master bathroom, the double vanity is crafted from a warm oak that creates texture and depth similar to authentic reclaimed wood. The density and grain of the wood is more consistent than with vintage wood.
A long vintage area rug adds color and pattern over the master bathroom’s wood floor, and a travertine pedestal table by the tub offers a spot for bath accessories or a beverage to sip while enjoying a soak.
This master bathroom is a luxurious retreat contrasting classic tile and fixtures with vintage lighting and rich color. The centerpiece of the room is the oval jacuzzi tub with a stunning chandelier overhead. The tile, counters and flooring are crema marfil marble with honey onyx accents.
A nook dedicated to fashion off of the master bathroom designed by Janie Wilburn is just right for a dressing area. The space features vintage fashion illustrations and soft, feminine colors of ivory and robin's egg blue on a folding screen, antique chair and wall color.
Although the designers at TriplePoint Design Build created a 1920s theme for this master bathroom, they were committed to installing modern conveniences for the homeowner. In the shower, a modern glass door adds spaciousness, and the the hardware is of a sleek and contemporary design. The same basketweave black and white decorative tile used in the rest of the bathroom continues the vintage theme.
For the master bathroom of a 1870s row house in Brooklyn, NY, designer Lorraine Bonaventura designed a vanity in keeping with the home’s historic style. A vintage mirror hangs above the white-painted vanity, which Bonaventura fitted with polished nickel fixtures. “Five deep drawers provide enough storage for all the toiletries,” she says. “The four seagrass baskets hold towels.”
Sherwin Williams Iron Ore was used on the walls for both of these boys’ rooms. The Jack-and-Jill bathroom is covered in a cool black and white comic strip-inspired wallpaper. The animated paper adds a sense of humor and a youthful energy that perfectly describes the Blehm boys. Each of the rooms also has refurbished vintage pieces that reflects the boys’ individual interests; check out the retro digital clock and Rubik’s cube. My favorite element is the black penny tiled bathroom floor that bridges that gap between the two bedrooms.
The master bathroom’s two trough vessel sinks with an asymmetrical oval basin are made from natural stone and etched with Japanese kimono-inspired textural patterns highlighted by a subtle champagne-gold metallic finish. The stylish sinks are paired with tall height vintage artisan-inspired top-mount handle faucets with a vibrant brushed nickel finish and temperature memory that allows the faucet to be turned on and off at any temperature setting.
This inspiration for this transitional, white bathroom was a vintage tourism brochure of Catalina Island. The beachy feel of Catalina Island is incorporated into the design with terrariums hung carefully above the oversized tub with thick, twisted rope Wicker Roman shades add to the casual, California design while complementing the lighter wood floors and bathtub caddy. Dark wood frames a large, leaning floor mirror and recessed lighting illuminates the room.
The dressing room features the adaptation and repurposing of vintage Birdseye maple cabinetry circa 1950, obtained at an estate sale. Originally a built-in bedroom set, Designer Lauren Levant separated and rearranged the pieces to create the dressing room's closets as well as a new double sink vanity for the bathroom. She raised the clothes armoires onto a new continuous platform she built and lined with LED light for dramatic and efficient shoe storage around the full perimeter of the room. Between some of the armoires, Levant added hanging rod sections and accessory sorting solutions.
