The Well Traveled Home - A Brass inspired Guest Bathroom

If you've followed me over the years, then you know that kitchens and bathrooms are kinda my thing. Knocking down walls, gutting ratchet tile jobs, well that kinda gives me an incredible high. Seeing those spaces utterly transformed? The sweetest of joys. So it's no surprise that we gutted this outdated bathroom with much glee. It's part of this Miramar House Tour project we first featured last week.


Builder grade tiles everywhere. Builder grade vanity. Sliding shower doors. But at least the brass was inspirational.
 The old school brass inspired this pendant, just one of several new lighting sources we added to this small guest bathroom.

Tiles were the star of the show in this space for sure. We were on a budget and used porcelain wood-like in a dramatic way on the walls with this detailed installation. Hexagon tiles on the shower floor added contrast to the linear details on the shower walls.

More modern brass updates on the shower and vanity faucets. Don't be afraid to use this old school finish in a new, modern way. 

There is no powder room, so this is the bathroom that all guests will use so we thought it should be as wow as can be down to the simple finishes like this towel hook and nail-head inspired mirror.

The vanity is smaller than the original, but it's loaded with storage as both drawers are deep and functional.

And there she is. A budget friendly bathroom that packs a heck of a punch. Have you used brass in your kitchen or bathroom? We'd love to see pictures or hear your thoughts. Are you loving or hating this comeback?
