Mandy Moore Guest Bathroom plans & design

mandy moore guest bath progess and design plans // Sarah Sherman Samuel

I probably say this with every new space but this might go down as one of my all time favorite bathrooms I’ve designed. The color palette, the fixtures and the extra special floor, I just can’t wait for it to all come to life. So many little details went into this room and a little finish selection like shown above only scratches the surface of what awent into a bathroom design but it really is the cherry on top and gives you a great glimpse into how this space is going to turn out.

But before we get into the details… let’s take a look back at where we started.

Trullbrook Kids Bath

kids bathroom // trullbrook // sarah sherman samuelI’ve got another bathroom design coming at you for the Trullbook Residence. This one is the upstairs guest bath or what we are calling the kids bath. In this room the layout will stay the same, but we will be gutting it and replacing all the finishes. The plan in here is to bring the decor into this decade (just wait till you see the before, it is pretty amazing!), make it a space that is kid friendly but will still appeal to all ages and not be outdated again too quickly. I chose a soft blush penny tile for the floor and white herringbone on the walls. A classic combo with a little pink twist. A minimal color palette of white, blush, and natural wood will create a clean modern look and the brass accents give it just the right amount of polish.

Trullbrook Residence Guest Bath

cle-tile // random hex pattern // sarah sherman samuelHi, Hi! Before the holidays I introduced you to my latest project “the Trullbrook Residence” with the kitchen design (if you haven’t seen the post read this and you’ll be all caught up!), and next up is the guest bath.

You may remember a sneak peek I gave on instagram (above) of the day we were on site making sure the random pattern I wanted done with the Clé Tile, looked random, but not too random… meaning every piece was laid intentionally, i.e. making it not so random at all. Well this beauty of a tile is going in on the guest bath floor and so without further ado, the before photo…

trullbrook-before-guest-bathAs you can see there isn’t much to talk about in here. It is a run of the mill, basic, basic, bathroom. You all know I like an all white room, but this one falls flat. We are taking it all out and starting from scratch. New everrrrrything and here’s a peek at what will be going in.

trullbrook-modern-guest-bathThere are 3 full bathrooms and a powder bath in the house and each one is different from the next. We’ve done a lot of pattern mixing with tiles and wallpaper and used a good amount of different geometric shapes, and we were always looking for unexpected materials and/or ways to use them. The goal was to make each bathroom special and unique while still creating a cohesive home. 

For the guest bath, I knew I wanted to make the floor the statement and that is where Clé Tile came in. I love the perfectly imperfectness of cement tile and all the geometric shapes they come in. We selected the half hex for the floors and then used their classic subway tile for the walls. It is a small bathroom so bringing in a floating vanity and removing the sliding doors on the tub will really open up the space. And while a big square mirror above the vanity checks off the functional box we found this special mirror that hangs from the ceiling and brings the fun personality of the floor up to the walls. Can’t wait to see this space come to life, I’ll be sure to share a progress post soon!

Next up is the powder bath…

Master Bath Finished Tour

master bathroom renovation // before & after // sarah sherman samuelYou may have seen around Instagram that I’ve been putting some finishing touches in our master bathroom. After living with it for a couple years, I’ve finally added in the little details that made it feel complete. You wouldn’t think it would take much in a bathroom but even small changes like switching out the pendant lights or additions like a rug and some pretty towels, can make a big difference.  READ MORE

main bath renovation progress

bathroom renovation // progress // sarah sherman samuelWell, the bathroom is 90% done, but I couldn’t wait to share the progress! As small as the space is, it feels twice the size it was before, with the removal of the old shower and the use of a wall mount sink. Now all that is left is to find a shower curtain rod/hanging solution, install various accessories (like toilet paper and towel holders), possibly add a shelf or two and take a freaking bath (oh wait, I checked that last one off the list)!

bathroom renovation // progress // sarah sherman samuelbathroom renovation // progress // sarah sherman samuelWe made up for the storage we lost by not having a vanity (times 5), by creating a large linen cabinet tucked in the corner, where the shower used to be… just needs some hardware.

bathroom renovation // progress // sarah sherman samuelbathroom renovation // progress // sarah sherman samuelOrdering everything online ended up working out just fine and I am still gaga over every single item that came in from Wayfair. Our only mis-hap was me not ordering enough tile, whoops. Unfortunately, that held up the renovation a few days because we were waiting on 10 more measly square feet of tile. I guess with a herringbone pattern there is a bit more waste than I originally accounted for. Lesson learned!
