Mandy Moore 2nd Guest Bathroom

mandy moore bathroom design // sarah sherman samuelIf you’ve been checking in on my Instagram Stories you will know that things are really moving along with our Mandy Moore residential project. It is literally the house of my dreams, a mid-century gem that we are taking back to it’s modern roots, and after many months of design, planning, and construction a lot of the finishes are starting to make their way into the house.

Today I am sharing a peek into the second guest bathroom. First let’s talk about that slab… we (Emily Farnham, the architect, Mandy and her Fiancé Taylor) all went stone shopping hunting for the perfect slabs for the kitchen and the three bathrooms. We fairly quickly settled on the kitchen and the other two bathrooms but in this bathroom we knew we wanted a statement colored stone and it wasn’t as easy to track down. A couple weeks later I went to another stone yard and had them pull out this beauty and knew it was the one!

I don’t normally work with purple, like ever, but I am broadening my color spectrum because this is a beautiful shade of eggplantey purple with bits of lilac and peach that I just couldn’t resist.

And now for a peek at the before…


As you can see, not much to look at, or work with. We gutted the entire room (just like the rest of the house), poured terrazzo floors, and will be installing all the gorgeous finishes above. Right now, the tile just went in (still needs to be grouted) and the vanity has been installed (that beautiful slab is hiding under the cardboard) which takes us to here…


The tile is from Fireclay (2×8 in calcite) and I found all of the fixtures from Wayfair (the undermount sink, faucet, shower head, toilet, drains etc).

For more progress and plans on this project check here and follow along as the house is coming together on instagram. Mine, Mandy’s, and Emily’s.

  • Hi Sarah. Love the design. What stone is that? Can you let us know the name? Absolutely adoreit. Also, if you need any hardware (knobs and pulls) let us know. Obviously love your line with Park Studio!

  • I find it amazing, I think you have chosen a piece with a lot of strength, light will also be important here. We are looking forward to seeing the end.
    I like so much your work! In fact, my last blog post, I was talking about one of your spaces.

  • This is ridiculously good. I’m on the edge of my seat, I can’t wait to see the end results!

  • Can’t wait to see this project completed. It’s always amazing to see what you do with a space, Sarah.

  • I can’t wait to see how it looks with the terrazzo, the two together seem perfect!

    Do you ever get nervous in mixing different types of brass finishes? (I never knew there were so many variations!) Or do you they all seem to work together despite the differences?

  • Virginia

    Such a stunning slab! I seriously can’t wait to see the finished project.

  • adrian fogel

    my mind is melting with how insanely gorgeous this is!

  • Purple slab just in time for Pantone’s color of the year!

  • Hi….Where are the pendants from?? I was hoping I’d find it in your shop.


    • Hello Stacey! Pendants are not in the shop, but stay tuned for the a full reveal post of the bathroom! Can’t wait to share it with everyone. Thanks for being patient!
