Bumping this blog post to the top:
We put this bathroom project on the back burner for a bit and we're finally ready to roll. Samples have been ordered and we're starting to make material orders. Yeah! Follow #smbathreno here and on our Instagram feed for updates.
From a handmade vanity and light fixtures, to an antique faucet and stripped solid brass shower fixtures, to handmade tile in Morocco, we've go to say this bathroom is getting a lot of special treatment.
One of the best parts of what we do is noodling endlessly over designs...hours and hours of noodling. This is a fairly small bathroom and we've easily spend over 50 hours perfecting the design.
The showstopper in this room is going to be the handmade Moroccan encaustic cement floor tiles that will run up half the wall behind the vanity. We bumped the wall out so that we can install an antique brass wall-mount faucet. Above it will have a marble ledge for accessories and we'll flank the mirror with handmade unpolished brass and black light fixtures. Let's not forget that we're building a custom walnut vanity that will be lit from below to show off the brass pin legs. It'll be topped with an undermount sink and marble countertop.
We're using some simple shower fixtures but are stripping the silver finish to reveal the unpolished brass. Over time it'll patina like the sink faucet and lights. The shower tile will be white so that the brass fixtures stand out. We built a full-width shower ledge, which will keep in line with the rest of the modern look of this bathroom.
Demo is done, rebuilding has begun and we're ordering materials. Exciting!
