Tell us a little about your client, and what they were looking for in their home renovation.

The home had been partially renovated, but my client was moving from California to Nashville and wanted a fresh start!  She wanted the house to reflect her style.  We began to add design elements that were more modern. Trying not to offend the original architecture, yet adding her personal style and aesthetic . 

Was this home a total renovation, or did it start with great bones?

The bones are beautiful! I love this house...especially the windows! 

That master bathroom is a favorite by many, and we’re dying over the vanity... tell us more!

So in this room it was about introducing elements! The brick wall looks original, but we added that, along with the classic black honed marble floor.  I have an amazing local custom cabinet maker that I work with!  Choosing the right wood and designing something that she had never seen before was exactly what she wanted. 

What part of the home did you get to design?

Everything except the kitchen. 

So many great pieces of art in this home - how did you incorporate all of it into each space? 

The art grew organically. She was collecting, and I was shopping for her on my buying trips and visiting local galleries. Then we just let each piece find its home!

the perfect bath (on a budget)

This month we have the pleasure of hosting a Waterworks Pop-Up shop in Nashville at Redo on September 20th 9am - 5pm. If you haven't already been ogling their gorgeous line of bath fixtures, tubs, and stunning bath furnishings, it's time to check them out! They have some swoon worthy options for anyone looking for a magazine-worthy, luxury bath.

So what makes a perfect bath if you are on a budget?

For me,  a perfect bath combines clean lines, timeless finishes, bright natural lighting and a luxurious feel. And you don't have to break the bank!! I recently helped my parents with the renovation of their 1920's craftsman main bathroom. We started out with these photos as our inspiration:

Although we were working within a very strict budget, my parents wanted the bathroom to feel timeless, modern, and fresh. At Redo we often refer to this as the "black Target dress, with Jimy Choo shoes." Splurge on some things to keep the room looking rich, but save on the basics. The way we accomplished this in their bath was by starting with classic white subway tile. White subway tile will never go out of style. I had them straight-stack the tile (as seen in the photo above) to keep clean lines, and give it a non-traditional feel. Then we chose a dramatic 10" black hexagon tile from The Tile Shop. This added a lot of character and texture without blowing our budget. 

For the vanity, we chose an inexpensive floating cabinet from IKEA, but added some richness through our drawer pulls and faucets. Furthermore, we added texture through natural wood shelving, a patterned shower curtain, and a vintage rug. 

You can find some of our selections below:

Unfortunately, the only picture I have of the end product was taken with an iPhone. At night. And features a tiny kitten and a dirty floor. So, you're welcome!! I will post some better pictures soon! 

What tips and tricks do you have for an affordable bathroom renovation?
