Textural Teal Bathroom

Designer: Morgan Bishop
Location: Columbia City, Seattle, WA

It’s hard to tell just how dramatic of a change this main floor bathroom remodel underwent unless you look at the before photos. We rearranged the layout, added natural elements, and updated all the finishes.

Since guests would be using the bathroom, the homeowners wanted it to feel crisp, clean and cozy. They also wanted to reposition to toilet so it wasn’t immediately viewable from the hallway. Instead, a more welcoming layout showcases the vanity.

The design started with the textural (and eco-friendly!) mini hexagon tile on the shower floor. It’s variegated coloring, made of recycled glass, add interest underfoot. This was the jumping off point for a bathroom remodel that aimed to bring in more light and natural elements. White, reflective tile was chosen for the shower walls to brighten up the room. A floating wood vanity and wood grain flooring ground the space.

A circular mirror, globe pendant and round vessel sink bring soft curves to the design. Matte brass was chosen as the accent metal to add warmth. Porcelain cabinet knobs act like jewelry for the vanity. You could get lost in the beautiful ombré they have, which is reminiscent of a glacier lake. Obscure window glass voids the need for blinds, making the whole room feel more intentional.

These nature-enthusiast homeowners love their new guest bathroom and how different it is from the previous design. It’s now full of light, texture and nods to nature.
