Bathroom reveal

For this family bathroom I was inspired by my favourite stylist kitchen which I posted a while ago.
Here’s a moodboard.

We decided to DIY the bathroom, so please be merciful in comments:) as we are not pros (meaning me as a decorator and my husband a contractor)
Too bad I don’t have any before photos (I will try to add in due course).Here’s the end result:

For the tiles we went with white marble tiles for the floor and simple subway tiles for the wall. I needed something geometric (I love this trend) so my husband put it with 90 degrees herringbone pattern (I was inspired by Smitten Studio bathroom).DSCN2320 The wall behind the tub was initially just painted (Benjamin Moore Crystaline – awsome greyish mint green), but my two little raccoons love to splash the water all over the place so we needed some protection for the wall.

Both type of tiles were bought here and we went with dark grout for subways tiles and no grout for the floor. Initially I wanted black grout, but then I chickened out as some people might not like the look (some say it looks dirty to them). DSCN2356 DSCN2376 DSCN2382I wanted some rustic feel, as I always like to mix old and new so I found this console table on kijiji.ca (it’s an equivalent of the Craigslist in Canada:) and the previous owner was so kind to even bring it my house for free (the total cost=70$). I like the distressed look ala Restoration Hardware, but for a wet space you really need to put a nice top coat so that the wood doesn’t get damaged. I was lucky – he just restored it!:))
