My masculine modern farmhouse bathroom remodel is inching closer to the finish line, so I thought this would be a good time to share the design concept and some progress photos.
When I introduced the project, I mentioned how my clients didn’t want white trim or finishes in the bathroom. White is my go-to in general and especially for bathrooms, so this was definitely a challenge. I saw it as a great opportunity to step outside my comfort zone and go a little darker with the materials and finishes.
My overall design concept was to create a warm masculine space that referenced farmhouse style but in a more modern way. I chose a palette of warm grays, browns, and black with subtle organic textures and pattern.
I chose a warm brown-gray stain for the cabinetry and paired it with black quartz countertops that have subtle taupe veining. For the floor tile, I specified a porcelain tile in shades of gray, taupe and cream that resembles concrete. It looked fabulous in combination with a gray wood-look tile in the shower. I flipped the traditional combination of white trim with gray walls and decided on Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter for all of the trim and wainscot paneling.
I like mixing metals in my designs because I think it’s more interesting than when everything matches. In this bathroom, I selected polished nickel plumbing fixtures for a little bit of shine and oil rubbed bronze lighting and hardware.
The soft lines of the modern soaking tub are echoed in the curves of the faucet and the white lightens up the room and keeps it from feeling too dark.
If you look back at the floor plan, you’ll see that the vanities are asymmetrical. I decided to use pendant lights on the longer side and a more traditional vanity fixture on the shorter side where the wall space was too tight for another option.
Here is the overall mood board…
And here is a quick rendering…
I love how the winter landscape echoes the colors in the tile.
My contractor is doing an amazing job with the trim work details.
Loving these pendant lights with the dark cabinetry.
I’m so excited by how this project is turning out and my clients are as well. We’re waiting on the countertops to wrap up the trim detailing at the vanity and to install the sinks and faucet, but otherwise, we’re pretty close to wrapping this one up.
