Project Reveal: Brio Guest Bathroom

The guest bathroom in our Brio Project is fresh, light-filled, and timeless. The classic pairing of white subway tile and marble hex floor tile is a look that can be recreated using either high-end or more affordable materials, but today I am excited to share the sources we used and the details that elevate the design.

This bathroom is all about the tile, with the pairing of beautiful marble hex tile with floor to ceiling subway tile. Although in many of our bathroom designs we use custom hand-fired tile, (read about Fireclay Tile in the bathrooms of Villa Bonita here), in this space we went with a more affordable option, 3″ x 6″ Dal-tile Rittenhouse Square in Arctic White. Even without a handmade tile, the space feels rich with the walls tiled floor to ceiling. On the floor, we chose this 2″x2″ Polished Carrara Hex. This is another tile that can work for a range of budgets depending on the quality of the marble.

The tub surround is marble slab that matches the floor and countertops. This is an upgrade that looks beautiful and really elevates the design.

The cabinetry is painted Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace and paired with polished nickel hardware. The metal adds subtle shine and picks up the veining in the marble. We used these cabinet pulls, these knobs, this shower fixture, and this sink faucet.

Blown glass pendants from Pottery Barn hang above the mirror. The dark metal adds contrast to the light space and ties in with the cool metal towel hooks on the opposite wall. Using pendants instead of sconces is an unexpected design detail that frees up wall space for an oversized mirror.

Soft textiles finish the space. We chose these lush towels with fringe detail and these striped turkish hand towels to add a little texture and pattern to the room.
