The Well Traveled Home - Master Bathroom Reveal

Awww. Another bathroom reveal. Y'all know how much I love ripping apart a tired and worn bathroom for a swanky update, and this one was a doozy.
This floating beauty of a vanity now sits pretty in the home we've been revealing here and here
We started this project at the beginning of the year and were given complete creative license to do whatever we wished. 
Here's where we started:
I've never understood this vanity layout developers seemed to love in South Florida. Just an awkward layout. 

Sigh. These bulky tubs drive me insane. Just insane. Deuces.

Ok, confession: we don't have the best photos of this bathroom. Just hard to find ones without someone looking back in the damn mirror. Our floor plan gives a clear sense of the layout which we re-worked by adding a double floating vanity, a free standing tub and a larger shower. 
Alright. Enough damn chatter. Here is our client's newly transformed master bathroom.
This floating vanity was an easy choice. Our clients love a modern vibe, so black vessel sinks, wall mounted faucets paired with a floating vanity lit from below would definitely turn up the design wattage in this once drab bathroom.

 The LED lighting below the vanity changes color and comes on automatically when you enter the bathroom. 

 Brass - from the previous bathroom decor - inspired these spray painted vanity handles. 

 It also inspired these ombre brass pendant lights and brass mirrors.

 Even though we technically shrank the vanity space from what they had previously, there's still ample counter space between the vessel sinks for hand towels and an accessory tray

 Oh lord, removing that bulky tub made the bathroom feel soooo much bigger, even with a new tub! A free standing tub, installed diagonally made it easily accessible and adding a distinctly dramatic touch to this space. Speaking of drama, yes! That's a Juju hat installed as our sole piece of art. 

 One of my favorite things to do in a bathroom is to mix metals as seen here with the chrome tub filler and wall mounted faucets, juxtaposed with the brass handles, mirrors

 And these hexagon shower tiles

We definitely wanted to go bold or go home with this shower tile and boy did this black hexagon tile take us there. Fun fact: sometimes our design plans evolve over time. We mulled over many, many tile options for weeks but when I saw this tile my heart stopped. And that's often how I make some design decisions. Just a gut instinct that says hey, when a tile or any finish makes your heart stop and your jaw drop, it's something you should run with.
 It was also a splurge but one we thought was oh so worth it. 

This isn't a choice for everyone, but this was a dream of a master retreat for a couple that craved bold choices so definitely felt confident they'd love it as much as we did and they sure did.

The shower is both stylish - tall seamless glass wall and doors, both a rainhead and handheld shower faucets with body spray; and practical - two niches for shampoo bottles and soap.

We used an off white porcelain tile on the main bathroom floors to balance the black of the shower wall and floor tiles and to serve as a contrast as well for the floating vanity with the reflective lights beneath.

And there ya have it. One of those master bathroom transformations that was sooooo far removed from where we started, that I seriously wanted to take a shower in, soak in the tub and use that vanity over and over again. P.S. I didn't. But there may or may not be shower selfie floating around.
