Renovation Update - Master Bathroom

My husband and I made a lot of progress this month with the finishes in our master bathroom. After searching for an over-sized mirror for months, we ended up purchasing the Kensington Mirror by Pottery Barn. I love how it hangs and gives the effect that it's floating. It also makes the space look so much larger.

In this photo of the mirror, you can see the brick wall that we exposed on the opposite side of the bathroom. A lot of scraping, power washing, re-pointing and time was invested in making this wall look perfect. I love how it turned out.

All of the bathroom fixtures are from Signature Hardware. Signature has an amazing selection of vintage-look faucets in an array of finishes.

We restored the original doors in the entire house. This is a sample of the mortise lock that we will use throughout the house. I love that it has a skeleton key lock! I found this at House of Antique Hardware, a dream shop for anyone looking for replica vintage hardware.

I wanted a fun shower curtain in solid white that would help cozy up the bathroom and contrast the brick wall. This morning I ordered the Waves of Ruffles Shower Curtain by Anthropologie. I think it's a perfect match for the claw foot tub, which I blogged about here.

The last item needed to cozy up the bathroom is an over sized bathmat. I ended up purchasing the Damask Bathmat by Anthropologie. It's the perfect size and so soft.

I will share final photos of the finished bathroom once the shower curtain and bath mat arrive. Have a lovely day!


  1. I LOVE the exposed brick!!!


  2. Oh my gosh, this is GORGEOUS! Love it, love that brick, too, and that is a fabulous shower curtain choice, I love the combination of vintage romantic against the brick! Great job with everything!
