Reveal :: Modern Bathroom with Rove Concepts

This modern bathroom reveal is long overdue folks, but with the One Room Challenge for our foyer and master bathroom it got pushed aside. One of the first projects we tackled in our new fixer-upper home last year was the guest bathroom – mainly because of an active leak that needed to be addressed. Over the years, the bathroom had been updated here and there, but not in a good way. The blinds, contemporary vanity, plastic yellow tiles and glass mosaic tile work needed to go. In fact, the entire space needed to be gutted and it all had to go except the original tub. Take a look at the before images and you will understand.

We wanted the new bathroom to feel fresh, yet timeless; traditional, yet with a modern twist. The black hexagon cement tile flooring was selected first and the white subway tile contrasted with dark grout was a natural pairing. The window was painted a glossy black and dressed with a custom roman shade in a sharp black and white buffalo check fabric. A new smaller pedestal sink, chrome mirror and vanity lighting was also added for a clean look.

As you know, I love to mix styles and love modern touches. To complete the space I teamed up with Rove Concepts, a leader in mid-century modern reproduction furnishings and accessories. I appreciate their focus on quality, detail and use of the highest quality materials to deliver reflect the essence of minimalist design.

I love adding a stool or chair to a bathroom when space allows. Once the radiator under the window was removed, it seemed a lovely spot for seating. Rove Concepts’ Flag Halyard Ottoman was the perfect choice. This statement piece was inspired by Hans J. Wegner and features suspended flag line supported by a durable stainless steel frame. It also comes with a chic Australian long-haired sheepskin to drape over the top. Isn’t it divine?

You know how I like to incorporate live plants in every room and bathrooms are no exception. Rove Concepts’ Strapped Marble Vase caught my eye instantly as I knew it would look great in the space. It now houses a beautiful orchid. I adore the strap detail – it brings a little warmth to the space and coordinates with the ottoman nicely.

Keeping it simple and functional, I selected a black ceramic coffee cup to corral the toothbrushes. The cup’s finish is a combination of matte and glossy. A subtle, yet lovely detail.

I’m completely in love with this new bathroom. And a big thank you to Rove Concepts for helping me get it beautifully styled.

Sorry for the radio silence, but our kitchen remodel has been consuming much of my time these days. I’ve made tons of decisions regarding cabinetry design, fixtures and finishes, but still have a few up in the air. For example, I still have yet to select the counter stools for an island. I’m torn on material and design. Should I pick up brass accents to echo the pendant lighting? Add a chinoiserie touch? or go with something classic? Here are a few that have made the short list. eeny, meeny, miny, mo…

San Francisco Decorator Showcase :: The Garden Room

Happy Friday! It’s been quite the hectic week with the One Room Challenge Reveal. I’m so relieved that’s it is complete (sigh) and touched by all the positive feedback. Thank you so much!

San Francisco Decorator Showcase // The Garden Room // Heather Hilliard

To wind down the week on a relaxing note, I’d like to share another fabulous room from this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase. The Garden Room by interior designers Heather Hilliard and Fleur Keyes of Heather Hilliard Design is an airy and informal space perfect for entertaining. With a casual, chic California vibe, the room’s organic design blurs the boundary between indoor and outdoor living. Love this! The walls are covered in a whitewash lime wall finish set a perfect neutral backdrop. A gorgeous open flame wood-burning fireplace is flanked by antique mirrors and logs ready for cozy fire. I’m also loving the long natural-edge wood Chris Lehrecke dining table and John Himmel handwoven rope armchairs – elegant, yet casual. Bravo ladies!

Friday Finds :: Vintage Safari Chairs

Vintage safari chairs seem to be popping up in more and more interiors. I’m personally drawn to the clean and yet rustic style. The chair which sprung from campaign furniture in the 19th century was designed to easily break down for travel.  Mid-century Scandinavian designers such as Kaare Klint and Arne Norell created versions of the safari chair that are in high demand today. If you are considering purchasing a vintage safari chair or two for yourself and the price tag has you shying away, you may consider CB2’s expat lounge chair or Bed Bath and Beyond’s Safavieh Dilan Safari Chair.

On my search for the perfect safari chair, I’ve rounded up a few both vintage and contemporary that caught my eye…
