Interior Designer Kirsten Grove takes us on a tour of a beautiful bathroom transformation in a 1960s ranch-style home.
There is nothing quite as comforting as having a fabulous bathroom to retreat to after a long day. Just imagine a tub full of soothing water, some bath salts, and a good book to dive into after a day's work. When I first met the Coffield family, they were in the process of taking half of their master bedroom and turning it into a master bathroom. They hoped to create a bathroom space that reflected their Mid-Century style but in a fresh and modern way. They wanted something stylish yet comfortable. We rose to the challenge and achieved that with the right colors, materials, and finishes.

The first thing we tackled was the color scheme. Because we wanted a clean, modern bathroom, we chose white, gray, black, and wood tones. One item that became an instant standout is the Kohler matte black faucet. This is my favorite detail of the whole space. It shines like a star. My client had a midcentury dresser that was used in another room. She wanted to use it as the vanity, so we topped it with marble and placed an undermount sink in it. For the vanity lighting, we chose the classic Isaac 1 Light Pendant from Schoolhouse Electric.

The bathtub and shower are simple yet elegant. They remind me of some of my favorite hotel spots. When you are styling a simple space like this, keep the accessories equally simple and understated. The shampoo and conditioner are both stored in wooden bottles. These uniform bottles are also a great option.

When soaking in a bathtub, being able to stare out a beautiful window adds to the picture-perfect scene. I always suggest adding natural light to bathrooms. Windows bring the outdoors in, and if you have a fantastic view, enjoy it from your tub. A classic yet trendy option for flooring is herringbone. We created the pattern in marble with white grout. It's the perfect complement for this space. The tiling around the tub and two main walls are square white tiles with white grout.

When designing your own bathroom, pair old with new or budget-friendly with high-end. It brings personality and character to a space.

This gorgeous mirror is an Ikea find! I was thrilled to find a mirror that was reasonably priced and a perfect fit for the space.

Continuing in the old and new theme, we paired brand new pendant lights with the vintage vanity. Think outside of the box and bring in what you love! Bathrooms do not have to sacrifice style just because they are primarily utilitarian rooms.
