A Bathroom in the Springs gets a Mid-Century Makeover

When we first met the Whitlocks, they were looking for a little help to get their second bathroom operational again. Generally very handy around the house, they had attempted the remodel themselves but had run into a wall with a few issues that left them realizing they might need some professional help. We were happy to step in and give them the assistance they needed to put this important space back to work for their family.


A leak is what started the original issues for the bathroom. In an attempt to fix the problem, the couple had removed the shower doors and base. Their original thought when they contacted us was just to have us fix the plumbing issue and install a new base. They admitted that they weren't fans of the original bathroom design but because of the midcentury modern style of the home, they were feeling uncertain about what the room should look like and what materials they should use. This was a super fun design to tackle because the midcentury vibes allowed us to work with some color and pattern that people are sometimes afraid to consider.


We chose a stacked indigo subway tile for the shower which we extended along the entire back wall behind the vanity for some extra wow factor. We grounded it with a fun patterned floor in muted whites and grays. To warm up the space, we added a retro wood vanity and brushed gold fixtures. A recessed medicine cabinet lends some extra storage space for all of their morning and nighttime necessities. We finished out the space with some new lighting and a fresh white paint color on the walls.

This remodel is a good reminder that a small bathroom can still feel like a luxurious retreat with the right design choices!

PRO TIP: you'll note that we did a mix of gold and black metals in the space. Many homeowners get stuck on the idea that metals need to match in a room, but that's not true. Design is all about the freedom to choose elements that add value to the overall aesthetic, so don't be afraid to mix and match metals throughout your home.
