Master Bathroom Decor

I may have to mark this day down on my calendar. It’s a momentus occasion, because I promised you all a week ago that I would be sharing some updates and changes in my master bathroom decor and – round of applause please…I’m actually doing it! That’s right I actually finished a project top to bottom without moving on to the next thing in the middle (you all know how my brain likes to bounce around).

Lake House Master Bath

OK scratch that, I just realized I painted my entire living room while I was waiting for my new chandelier to be delivered, so fine, my brain (and my paintbrush) are still bouncing over here, but at least I can check this room off the list!

Lake House Master Bath

Our master bath has always been one of my favorite rooms in our house and a definite labor of love since we laid all the tile in here ourselves, but I love it so much more now that I actually decorated it.

I mean, it was decorated before with the leftovers from our last house, but for whatever reason it took me 3 years to actually get my act together in here. I guess I was too busy relaxing in my tub to care about it.

It all started with this rug, we never had a rug in here before and now I have no idea how we ever lived without one. Every morning the Mr. and I would complain about our feet freezing while getting ready for the day. We would dream of heated flooring, warmer temperatures and fuzzy slippers and then some weird light bulb went off and DUH get a rug captain obvious!

I found this one 50% off on Overstock.com plus free shipping so I could’t pass it up. It added so much warmth to this room.

The rug then led me to buy these stripey towels from Pottery Barn, you know I can’t pass up a good stripe! But this chandelier is the icing on the cake.

A bathroom tub chandelier

The Mr. and I installed this gorgeous capiz chandelier (again from PB on sale right now, go get one!) without electrocuting ourselves and with minimal cursing under our breath.

For whatever reason when we built this house the inspector deemed our bathtub technically a shower, because of the handheld shower thingy (technical terms only around here), so we had to have this awful ugly plasticy light cover over the tub, lovely huh?

We always planned on changing it, and I’m so glad we finally did. When we flipped that switch it was like “ahhhh-AHHH!!” (imagine me singing in my best opera voice…ok, so imagine an opera singer singing in her best opera voice, it was like that) it just looks so pretty. These photos just don’t do it justice!

Here’s a close up, these shells are so pretty and it was really easy to switch this out (my friend Jen over at Chronicles of Home has a great tutorial on switching out a can light for a pendant, if you want to get a little better idea of what you are getting in to)

This shows the hall leading to our bedroom so you can get a better idea of the space, and nope we don’t have a door, there was just no great way to break up the space. The hall is so long though that it’s still pretty private.

A new crisp white shower curtain completed the mini-makeover and I’m just loving the fresh feel in this room now.

Of course, the view is much better come Summer, right now it is so blah and white (I may have to reshoot this when it warms up) but this is what I have to look forward to…

sigh, for now I’ll just focus on my pretty chandelier and not the snowmageddon that just keeps coming outside.

    1. Hey Shelby we got ours from one of those direct buy type of places, I don’t see a name brand on it anywhere, sorry I’m no help!

  1. Kelly your bathroom is a little piece of heaven. Gorgeous view and beautiful tub. It is weird the way inspectors work isn’t it?? That rug from Overstock is so pretty and tile on the floor perfect. I love Overstock, it is my computer version of HG as well as many other stores, LOL.


  2. I love your master bathroom Kelly! We are looking to do something similar tile wise in our new master bath. Can you tell me where you got the white subway tile and floor tile and the names. Trying to find some pretty and affordable options!!

  3. Love it all! Worth the three year wait for sure!! Ps: that hallway is the size of our master bedroom! I need to move to Michigan!!

  4. Your bathroom is so pretty and so spacious. I love the tile too. How lucky you are to have such a retreat!

  5. If you haven’t already started one, you HAVE to right a book. Your decorating style is so classic and you are a hoot. I am officially claiming snowmaggedon. Living in Canada, I can definitely relate. You are without a doubt, one of my favourite blogs.

  6. Your bathroom is beautiful. You’ve done a great job and your attention span is fantastic. I have the attention of a flea. I get bored doing something when it takes a long time. I love the view of the lake. It would be wonderful to soak in the tub and sip some tea or wine and just reeeeeelax.

  7. Hi Kelly, your bath is so bright and fresh looking and I don’t miss the door at all.

    Love the tub and lovely light fixture. Great touch of color in the rug and towels too.

    My pleasure to pop over and browse around.

    Hope you have great week.

  8. Well I think your bathroom is just utterly gorgeous and clean and bright looking! The bath looks so good to soak in (and I’m not a bath kind of person!). I’m sure your view out the window is lovely no matter what the weather – at least you get a change of seasons up there to look forward to – me, down-under, only has summer year ’round – sigh! Wouldn’t mind a snow-fall now and again!

    1. I do love the change of seasons, I just wish winter lasted about 2 months and we could have spring already :) Summer year round sounds pretty good right now! Thanks Petra!
