one room challenge // loft bathroom, the reveal!

This post is 6 weeks in the making… I’m so excited to share the reveal of my loft’s bathroom renovation! I’m not sure if I could have pulled this off without the inspiration of One Room Challenge ‘gently’ nudging me each week to finish some projects in there and share the results… but I actually did it! And, as a first time renovator, this feels like quite the feat. That’s right, I’ve never committed to a renovation like this before and I learned quiiiiite a bit.

So… without further ado, let’s see it!

Really, I just wanted a bathroom FULL of plants…

As I was prepping the room for this photoshoot, I had one small snafu: this gorgeous apothecary cabinet from Pottery Barn didn’t arrive in time! It’s on the way, so be sure to check back to see it in place. In the meantime though… I pulled my favorite stylist’s trick called “put a plant on it.” See that giant palm tree? That was my last minute fix.

This piece by Jaime Derringer was the inspiration for the entire space, especially from a color standpoint. It even has a tiny hint of the brick red coloring! Once I had color inspiration, the rest actually felt pretty easy (maybe because I wasn’t allowed to demo the shower??).

I’m really, really satisfied with how this renovation turned out. The color was truly the biggest change in the space — and how perfect is it with the brick?? The bathroom is suddenly a place where I actually want to spend time now.

I’m beyond happy that it no longer feels like a cave, but instead feels like a relaxing, restful place. What do you think?

    Absolutely gorgeous!!! One major issue with this design,ONLY ISSUE,…NEVER EVER hang a towel near a toilet.

    • Glad you like the makeover! I hear ya on the towel placement. Unfortunately as a renter, my options were limited to what was already installed in the space. Thanks for commenting!

  • Vel

    Looks fantastic and very calming. It has spa like qualities in how airy and clean lined it is … ven with brick walls. I love the texture of those with everything else! We did a bathroom, too and though small they can really take a lot of time. I was up sooooo late the night before our reveal :) Enjoy your new space!

    • so glad you get spa vibes from it – that was totally my goal!

  • OMG I am OBSESSED! Our bathroom is painted a very similar color & I love it tho it looks 100% better in your place with the brick! GAH! I also love how you added the plants under the sink- genius way to hide the pipes & house some happy plants! So good, lady! Enjoy! (PS- I’m totally ordering 2 of those rugs for in our bedroom on either side of our bed. Thanks for the inspo!) :-*
