Bathroom Finishes: Traditional Meets Modern

When we decided to make the kitchenette from the original upstairs apartment into our master bathroom, we basically got to start from scratch.  We had lots of options, but we decided to go with the one that made the most sense for us. In picking out all of our finishes for this bathroom, we really strove to bring in a good complimentary mix of modern and traditional elements.

But we aren’t finished yet!  There’s still several things that we need to complete this bathroom.  Enter: Modern Bath.

The main thing missing from this bathroom for me is a pretty chandelier.  We currently have the vintage hanging light that was original to the kitchenette before we converted it to a bathroom. I thought I had settled on something similar to this, but then I saw this one and got all confused again.  It’s the perfect blend of modern and traditional, and definitely makes a statement.

Right now we have a dinky little shower head that gets the job done, but leaves a lot to be desired aesthetically.  I want a giant shower head! Something like this would definitely do the trick.

We also need storage for our linens in the bathroom, and since there is plenty of space, it’s just a matter of picking out a piece that we like.  Right now we keep towels and sheets in the master closet, but with bulky sweater weather right around the corner, we’ll need the extra space.  I love the idea of furniture in a large bathroom, and I’ve always imagined having something with drawers on the bottom and glass doors on the top.  I love this linen tower in both white and gray.

This bathroom finally took shape a few weeks ago and felt complete…or at least really really close.  We still have a few finishing touches to add (vanity hardware, rugs, new overhead lighting, towel hooks, and a new shower head), but I’m pretty excited to share the results thus far with you!
