A Blended Master Bath

*This post was originally published on March 30, 2016.

Are any of you sick of an all white bathroom? No? Okay... honestly, neither am I. It will always be a beautiful & classic look. However, sometimes I just get in the mood to mix things up and do something a little different. It seems like we lived through so many years of dark wood and travertine tile that we all escaped to bright white cabinets and bright white tile for a little bit of relief. Finally, I think we've reached the sweet spot. I love that we're transitioning into this time where stained woods and colorful tiles are acceptable. We get to blend our two worlds and create spaces that are both modern & timeless.

I think the goal for any home should be to make things current without being trendy. That was my goal for this bathroom- use modern elements that don't force the room to become "modern," but rather elevate a timeless space.

The newly released tiles from Emser mixed well with hexagonal floor tile and a tall tower of subway tile. It gave the room a slight edge and added intrigue, but we still feel grounded and simple. And, of course- a little marble helps that too ;)

Don't ever hesitate to mix metals and finishes. As long as you stick to neutrals, you can shake it up as much as you want and you'll still have a space that is both blended and cohesive.
