I never thought I’d see the day when I could successfully shower in my own master bathroom. Hallelujah — it has arrived, and it is a glorious day indeed. (After all, you can only shower at your in-laws for so many months…)

Care to see our master suite?

Do you remember our master bathroom moodboard? Let me show you precisely how we fared in getting the look:

Lookie! A driftwood mirror!

While I had no intentions of hanging a decorative driftwood mirror in our loo, I couldn’t resist adding some warmth to the area above that modern Kohler sink. After all, bathrooms can be gorgeous, too — right? And the mix of stark white, shiny chrome and warm wood is enough to make my heart sing.

At first glance, our bathroom is ready to go. But with a closer peek, you’ll see a few finishing touches that we need to conquer before giving it our seal of approval:

Take a closer peek...

See that tiny hole in the wall underneath our stool? We still haven’t trimmed out the floorboards, although they are primed and painted in the basement downstairs. Baby steps, friends. The good news is that our radiant floor heating is working like a charm and our tootsies are very cozy indeed.

Where the magic happens...

And, of course, the shower/sauna combo needs to be trimmed out. And we’re still sourcing a glass door for our DIY sauna. But you know? I think we’re making some serious progress, especially considering the state of our bathroom a few short months ago:

Can you believe this was the same wall that our beautiful sink now graces?

A vast improvement, I must say. Stay tuned for more progress in the coming weeks — we’ve got a lot to share! See you next Wednesday…

    LOVE the bath. Especially the sink/faucet combo. You have such great style! I recently had a customer who had a lot of splashing with that same wall mount faucet, we solved the problem by adding a fantastic glass backsplash from the sink up around the faucet. Not that you are going to have that problem, but it's a great finished look and easy fix. I agree with Martha, really like Wednesdays!

    Wow, I love it. I would never think to put the wood with the modern white the way you did and it's just LOVELY.
