A Little Bathroom Bling

Thought I'd share a few of the finishing touches that were added to the master bathroom today.  Finally, the knobs and pulls were installed...

I thought about abandoning personal hygiene in an attempt to keep the new shower clutter-free. Instead, I replaced our big, messy shampoo bottles with these sweet little acrylic ones. I scored them at Home Goods for $7 each. Notice how our shampoo and conditioner colors complement the color of the mosaic tile.  And, I didn't even plan that :)

I am bound and determined to keep the marble countertops as pristine as possible. I put a pretty soap dispenser by each sink.  I bought a coordinating toothbrush holder, but that will definitely be kept out of sight.

I hated the thought of "junking" up the pretty wainscoting with towel bars. Towel rings wouldn't work well, because the towels hung too low and dragged on the countertops. These small hand towel bars (from Lowe's) were a great find. They don't take up much space.

Now I just need some pretty towels to hang on them! I'm on the hunt for a couple sets of new towels. Restoration Hardware's Silver Sage towels go pretty well with the wall color, but I'm hoping to find something with a bit of a pattern to it. Would love to hear if you have any favorite towels that you recommend!

Our master bathroom is the one shiny, brand-new, clutter-free space in our house, and I intend to keep it that way for as long as I possibly can. I just need to keep the door to the closet shut...

.... because it's a whole different story in there!


  1. Looks beautiful!! I love the glass knobs on your cabinets! Martina

  2. Where did you get the long handles on your cabinets? They are awesome - I would run out and get those for my bathroom. Seriously, if you can, please let me know.

  3. Your bathroom is simply STUNNING!!!! Your cabinet work is gorgeous..what color is it? Love it..and do you mind if I ask who you went to for your hardware? Love it!! SO exciting!!

  4. Gorgeous! I love those towel bars! May need to look into those for ours...having tub issues so it's not going too great now.

  7. Well no surprise to hear, this bathroom is pretty darn fabulous!

  8. Would you mind giving sources for your material? Tile, knobs, etc.


    Lovely bathroom!

  9. Your bathroom is just stunning! I think I could just lay around in your tub for hours. I would love to add it to the inspiration galleries on my site and include you in a feature post. Let me know if you're interested!

  10. Oh, also, do you know the name of the paint color? I love it!

  11. I think if I had this room in my home I would add a 'chair' to sit in and just read and hide out.
    JUST beautiful.

  12. I read your feature on Southern Hospitality. Your bathroom is beautiful!! I have a question on your shower. We are in the process of a bathroom remodel and have a partial wall surround in our shower area. Do you have a problem with water going outside the area when showering? I'm wondering if we will need to plan for some type of shower curtain. Thank you for the information. I will be a new follower!

  13. @ Commuter Mommy... I just wrote a new post with all the product information. Hope it helps! If you have any other questions, let me know :)

    @ Ruth ... the short answer is no, we haven't had any problems with spray outside of the shower. I'll e-mail you with more specifics!

  14. Simply stunning! You did a wonderful job choosing the materials and fixtures. I'm sure you are enjoying it!

  15. OMGosh, this is an extraordinary room! I might just live in there if it were mine!
