It’s finished! Finally! This old house y’all … I’ve been dying to show you all my bathroom reveal and now I finally can. Its been a long process and I’ve been working on it since we moved in about 2 years ago. Between school and coming home on some weekends you can see why it took me so long to fix up and renovate. Below I show you some before pictures and explain my design behind my bathroom. Hope you enjoy!
When we first moved into our home my attached full bathroom was pretty dark, boring and grey. It had good bones though and I had a vision of brightening it up. The first thing I fell in love with was the black and white hexagon tile floor. I wanted my bathroom to reflect my bedroom decor (you can view my bedroom, here) but with a twist and a little more glam.
I decided to be bold and choose gold paint for the walls and to go a step further… I wanted stripes! haha crazy I know! But I had this vision of what I wanted and the best way I could explain it was to draw it out. If you know me… you know that I love to draw and its easier for me to express myself through drawings. So thats what I did as you can see in the picture above. Also, I find that for myself drawing things out helps me envision what I want my end goal to be. It helps me see what I need to tackle and get done.
However, I knew that if I did stripes on all four walls – floor to ceiling – it would be way too busy for the eye. So thats when I decided to break up the stripes and do a white chair rail with a crown molding trim. Chair rail trims are a very old characteristic of southern homes so adding that into our historic home made me feel as if I was bringing the character and history back to life!
My bathroom came with this beautiful black exterior claw foot tub, mirror and vanity sink. So for decor options I knew I needed more storage space for all my beauty products and bath products. I found this white drawer and added crystal knobs to it for more of that glam feel I wanted. Among other decor pieces that tied this bathroom together were the towel rack, towel bin, vintage ottoman & pillow, vintage magazine stills, a painting, gold mirrored side tables, white faux fur rug, and long black shower curtains with gold rope ties. All items (and similar ones) can be found below.

The bathroom is pretty spacious so I was able to add a lot more pieces than I originally thought without making it look too clustered. I decided to add an ottoman to the design scheme because I find that while I’m doing my makeup or blow drying my hair etc. I like to sit down. Also, I added a set of three staggering gold mirrored side tables next to my bathtub so that I can light a candle or put a book down while I’m taking a bath. The side tables were definitely a good idea in that respect.
I hope you find inspiration for your own space through my photos of my remodeled bathroom. Thank you so much for all your nice comments on Instagram and private messages. Please leave some love below or on my Instagram picture that I just posted! It really means SO much to me because it’s something I’ve put so much work and heart into! Decorating and designing is something I’ve been very passionate about, all stemming from my mother so to finally be able to show you guys something I’ve been working hard on for so long is truly fulfilling.
Thanks for reading!
