Vintage Glam: Before and After!

Remember the bathroom renovation in my grandmother's childhood home? You may recall that it looked pretty bad. Check out the before and after! 
   No changes had been made in decades to the original bathroom. My client wanted a sophisticated bathroom that would do double duty for her daughter and guests.
We went with a lilac and gray palate and warmed it up with polished nickel, mercury glass and dark brass accents. 
I fell in love with the glass flower sconces because they added a whimsical touch and I knew my client's daughter would flip over them. I wanted to keep it simple and elegant, while tying in old-fashioned elements from the rest of this stunning tudor. 
Carrara marble tops and the marble and glass back splash mimic quatrafoil designs in other areas of the house. See here.
The Kohler "pin stripe" faucet adds a vintage touch. 
Visual comfort lighting brightens the lilac ceiling and plays off the design of the tile. 
We found this mirror at an antique shop in Raleigh and opted not to touch it. I love the shape and how it fits perfectly in the space. 

Prestige Kitchen and Bath created these beautiful cabinets in a soft gray. The penny round floor tiles and gray grout give it a vintage vibe.  
Believe it or not, the mercury glass melon knobs were a Homegoods find! 

I wanted to frame the herringbone shower wall so I opted for this custom valance and shower curtain panels. 
After quite the renovation, I know this teenager is enjoying her new bathroom. Now onto the guest bedroom...
bye bye birdie...
