One Room Challenge-Week Six-The Reveal!


Hello, hello! This has been the most intense 6 weeks and there were moments when I doubted completing it all in time but here we are on reveal day- we made it!  We encountered almost  everything that could possibly go wrong during a renovation, but we prevailed. Before we delve into the reveal, I wanted to again thank Linda for inviting me to be a featured designer in this edition of the One Room Challenge. These makeovers could not have been possible without our sponsors and specifically the ones I partnered with;  Overstock, Signature Hardware, The Tile Shop, Hudson Valley LightingCouture Lamps, Garnet Hill, Fabricut, Varaluz, Lifecore Flooring, MintedEmtek Products and Hansgrohe USA.

I also could not have  accomplished all of this without the help of the panarican_handyman who worked tirelessly to meet this deadline. Also thank you to the hubby who was away for most of the process, but returned toward the end and helped me accomplish those last minute tasks- thank you my love!  AND big shout out to our friends who gave up their Sunday to help with the installation of our new delicious closet system.  Thank you too to Lea Hartman who captures all my hard work so beautifully.

Recap:

   Week 1/Week 2/Week 3/Week 4/Week 5

 Ok, without further ado, let's dive into the reveals. First up is the bathroom.  For the bathroom renovation, the layout remained the same but it was a total gut job.  My main goal was to make it feel bright, airy, and spa-like in here. I wrestled with whether or not I would wallpaper or repaint with color.  Here are a couple before pics for  quick reference below.




before - it was so dark and dated

And voila! After many sleepless nights obsessing about what I was going to do with the walls, I decided to repaint them and the ceiling in one of my favorite whites, Benjamin Moore Cloud White. It took me a number of days to get rid of that dark color in the before but what a transformation! As I mentioned before, we gutted the bathroom and replaced almost everything(except the tub).  

The vanity lights are from Hudson Valley and are perfect in here! I love the abstract element the art pieces I chose from Minted add to the space. I also obsessed about what finish to use and while I am smitten with brass, i settled on brushed nickel for most of the finishes, especially since that's the finish throughout the rest of the house. I did incorporate some brass via the lighting and mirrors, and art frames, but it all look great together.

As I mentioned before, we gutted the bathroom and replaced almost everything(except the tub).  The existing floor tiles were replaced with these striking Firenze Carrara Polished Marble 12x24 Floor Tiles from The Tile Shop. They are so pretty and the subtle designs in the tiles add depth and interest to the space.

The bulky his and hers vanities that took up a lot of visual space before gave way to these modern and beautiful versions from Signature Hardware. The white washed finish adds more texture and movement to the space and I am smitten with the self closing drawers. The Palora round mirrors are also from Signature Hardware and help to break up the square shapes in the space.

 My color loving self couldn't resist these subway tiles  from The Tile Shop and I thought the rose color was a great opportunity to continue coral/pink color story from the Master bedroom.  I opted to use these marble tiles from The Tile Shop in the same family as the floor tiles in the shower pan and added a touch in the niche.  I updated the shower faucet with the same brand that was there before as I found out that I needed to make sure the plumbing behind the wall was compatible with whatever the new replacement was. I learned so much throughout this process.  I kept the brushed nickel finish which complements the shower tiles beautifully.

I initially  planned on reusing the glass shower door that was in the space before, but after we completed the space and was about to reinstall the door, we realized that it was no longer going to work. It was sized to fit the tiles which were in the space before and those were much thicker than the subway tiles. For now, I'll just put a shower curtain there until we replace the glass door.

The Hangrohe faucets I chose are simple but perfect for the space.

I kept this wallpaper that is in the commode area but added this darling light fixture from Hudson Valley- so lovely!

I said I wouldn't repaint these doors(see week 5), but I did! It's no secret that I have been crushing on yellow/ochre so I had to incorporate it somehow in the makeover. I love how it pops against the white and I am a sucker for contrast. It's Sherwin Williams Overjoy and aptly named.

These Emtek knobs are the perfect finishing touch.

I decided to keep the original tub because I couldn't afford a new one plus this one is still in perfect condition and works just fine. We wrapped it with the same marble floor tiles and kept the existing tub faucets. I added some texture with this lovely basket from Garnet Hill. Towels are also from Garnet Hill. 

OK, now onto the closet. It's tiny and though I would've loved to be able to add windows, that was not an option. However,  I am loving the transformation. Thank you to our sponsors Overstock and Lifecore Flooring who made this closet transformation possible. I wanted to wallpaper, but soon realized that since it's such a small space, the wallpaper would've faded into the background once the closet system was installed.

I am so happy to come in here each day.  I repainted and continued the Cloud White in here. I also replaced the dowdy carpet with wood floors. The beautiful floor is from Lifecore Flooring and I love that not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but it is also environmentally friendly. 

The new Pur by Bestar closet system from Overstock is like a dream come true! That gorgeous mirror is such a great addition and opens up the closet, plus would you believe that we've never had a full length mirror before?

I love this view and those Emtek knobs are shining! 

I plan on following up with a video tour of the closet as it was difficult to capture it all due angle and its miniature size:-). Stay tuned 

The Bedroom- A Mini Refresh

I didn't do much in the bedroom, but after being a dumping ground and riddled with dust for 6 weeks, it deserved some tlc. I added those beautiful drapes made by a local seamstress, Hannah. Thank you Hannah! The velvet coral fabric is from Fabricut and ties in nicely with the coral wall color. Those stately and elegant table lamps from Couture lamps are ridiculously stylish! The most scrumptious and luxurious bedding to ever touch my skin are from Garnet Hill (linked individually below)

We went from having 0 full length mirrors to having 2! This stunning mirror from Varaluz looks divine in the bedroom.

This blue chair also got a nice facelift

I love how it turned out. I chose this upholstery fabric from Fabricut. Can't stop drooling!  Big shout out to local Dulceco for doing such a fab reupholstery job!  There you have it my friends! I can't believe how much I accomplished over just 6 weeks! Now it's time to kick back and relax.

One Room Challenge- Week 5


One Room Challenge- Week 5- design addict mom
I am a bit late in getting week's 5 post up because I am literally racing to the finish line! I am showing you these pink doors in the Master bedroom that also leads to the Master bathroom because I changed the color! I know-gasp, right? We all love the pink and I was actually adamant at the beginning of the challenge that whatever design direction I take, those pink doors do not change! Alas, they did.You'll have to wait for the reveal to see the new color though:-).

One Room Challenge- Week 5- how to repaint a door- design addict mom
 If you're repainting a door, it helps to remove the hardware as doing so makes painting easier. Though I've repainted these doors in place before, I opted to remove them to repaint them as so much is going on in the renovation zone and it's easier to paint them elsewhere. I primed the doors then gave them a light sanding . It's a great idea to do a light sanding to help remove any buildup/debris that might be in place. I love using my orbital sander that's pictured as it makes sanding a breeze and is very efficient.  Sanding between coats with a fine grit sandpaper helps to remove any unwanted debris and promotes a smooth finish. I also had primed the doors prior to repainting. When repainting,

This Estee light(from Hudson Valley) installed in the  ceiling of the commode area of the bathroom  is one of my faves! Well that's it for week 5 updates- see you back here next Wednesday for the big reveal- so exciting! xx
