Salle de Bains no.1

• 28 September 2009

Okay, are you ready for some more before + after images? Check these out and you'll see why we gutted the entire bathroom :) Yes, the bathroom was so gross that a portable potty was almost preferable! We moved the water heater to a completely different location to give the bathroom an airy feel, took out awful wood paneling to again, create more space; and then also ripped out equally awful linoleum flooring. Just as we suspected we found hardwood floors underneath...yay! (view the video here).

After redoing all of the sheet rock, we painted the bathroom RH's Butter Cream (trim in "Right White") which ended up being the perfect color for this space. A local professional worked wonders on the hardwood and was able to bring out their rich beauty. Next, we installed a luxurious shower pod (such a treat!), new sink, toilet, lighting, a Tolix storage piece and towel warmer. From the large bathroom window you overlook a large grove of trees without a single residence or building in sight--it also creates a considerable amount of natural light, which I love in bathrooms. On the walls I hung framed,vintage botanical prints that my husband and I chose at an antique market.




  1. Such an awful before, and such a beautiful after! I especially love the hardwood floors, such a luxury in a bathroom....

  2. I'm in complete awe of this entire process. Truly amazing + inspiring. And that bathroom! Divine.

  3. Much better! I am sure the bathroom is thanking you.

  4. What a transformation! It's beautiful and so luxurious!

  5. amazing. just amazing. i am SO impressed. i can't wait to see it all in PERSON! :)

  6. You. Are. Ammazzing!! I've been blog stalking you because you just inspire me to contemplate what I would like to accomplish later in my life when I am married with a husband and after I graduate from college. Right now, college is consuming my life. Ha.

  7. Wow. What a transformation! Very nice.

  8. Love it. Where did you get the picture of the flower ?

  9. I bought the vintage print at a brocante (antique market).

  10. I'm new here and am going through your posts on this renovation with great interest. I have a tiny vacation apartment in Austria to renovate and I'm trolling for ideas.

    Long intro / short question: where can I find that little freestanding table/cabinet you have in the bathroom next to the sink for the tp rolls?

  11. Megan,

    I found that piece at Merci in Paris. It's made by Tolix. The Conran Shop in Paris also sells the same piece, as well as a 5-shelfer, but they are priced much higher than at Merci.

    Good luck! A vacation rental in Austria sounds lovely!


Thanks so much for taking the time to drop a line. I really appreciate it!
