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!

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. I’ve been reading your blog for some time now but have never commented. I love how calm and relaxing your house is! And You’re bathroom is beautiful and very inspiring. We actually remodeled our master bath in December but haven’t quite finished decorating yet. I was wondering where you got the shelves with the chrome brackets. We are looking for something similar!

  2. wow it’s gorgeous!! can you tell me where the shelves are from? I’m looking for some for our bathroom next to the tub.

  3. Looks beautiful! We’re in the process of remodeling our bathroom and was looking for blinds that aren’t huge and chunky, it looks like you have something on your windows, can you share what they are and if you like them ? Thanks !

    1. Thanks Rebecca, they are those fabric kind of accordion style blinds? Does that make any sense? We ordered them from a discount window covering place, but I love that they pull all the way up so you only see about an inch of white and they provide complete privacy when they are pulled down. Hope that helps!

  4. Absolutely gorgeous! Love everything about it! I can picture swinging shutter doors or a sliding barn door for a cozy feeling when you are soaking in the tub. It miight even accentuate the cool arch above the door. Lovely room!

  5. You’re bathroom is truly dreamy! If it weren’t weird to take a bath at a total stranger’s house, I would invite myself over! ;)
    Love the rug, love the towels, love the chandelier. As always, you did a beautiful job!

  6. There are very few homes in blogland that I could just bring my toothbrush and move into….but yours in one of them!! I’d be in that tub all the time…and that view. Love love love!

  7. BEAUTIFUL bathroom Kelly! Love it all! I am decorating my bathroom right now too and having the hardest time finding a rug that fits our space! Your runner looks perfect for that room!
