ORB You Know Me

Remember last month when I shared my design for my in-laws guest bedroom and said a bathroom plan was also in the works?  Well just like the bedroom, the feel I was going for in the bathroom was sophisticated {in this case "spa"} married with country.  My first inclination was to go with the wildly popular brass/marble combination but as I was thinking through everything I decided to use oil rubbed bronze paired with marble instead.  The brass just wasn't lending the country edge the design called for, oil rubbed bronze will be the warm country counterpoint to the spa feel of the marble and cool hues.

Here is my inspiration board:

There is an existing 30" vanity that will be updated with a new countertop, paint, and hardware.

The paint color for the vanity is Benjamin Moore Glass Slipper.  This is the same paint color that is on the adjoining bedroom walls and I think it will tie in beautifully with the sleek white marble and rich oil rubbed bronze. 

Pottery Barn's Sussex Double Tube Sconce will hang above the mirror.  The shape is not overly modern, but I like that is does add a hint of modern to the bathroom. I love in the photo above how you can see the way traditional ORB can play off white marble.  Working through the bathroom design I really grew to appreciate this pairing. 

Pottery Barn's Germain Arched Mirror will hang above the vanity, the hand carved mango wood will be a nice rustic but polished detail. 

This Home Depot Carrara marble countertop with white sink basin will replace the current vanity top.  I'm so glad we'll be able to update what's already in there rather than having to buy a pre-fab vanity.  It seems like pre-fab vanities that look nice are usually extremely pricey and in this case I prefer the look of a built-in vanity.   

Home Depot 20" Cararra marble side-splash will go against the wall.

I am so excited about this brass horse head towel ring I found on One King's Lane.  It's a splurge for a towel ring but it is a must-have.  It will hang on the wall next to the vanity and it loops in the horse element from the bedroom.  

Lowe's allen + roth Aged Bronze Round Cabinet Knob, we'll use two of these to replace the current hardware.  

Lowe's Kingston Brass Heritage Oil-Rubbed Bronze Widespread Faucet, I think this will look so striking against the marble and will really bring out the veins.  

The walls, ceiling, and trim will be Benjamin Moore's White Dove {this color is also used in the bedroom ceiling and trim}. 

The bathroom and shower floor will be Home Depot's MS International Grecian White 
12 in.x12 in.x10 mm Honed Marble Mosaic Tile. 

The shower curb tile is from the same line, Home Depot's MS International Grecian 12in.x12 in. Honed Marble. 

Lowe's allen + roth Venatino Polished Natural Stone Mosaic Subway Tile will line the shower walls. 

The bathroom currently has no baseboards so these Home Depot MS International 
Grecian 4in.x12in. Polished Marble Baseboard Wall Tiles will be taking care of that. 

All grout used will be Lowe's MAPEI warm gray sanded powder grout.

To warm up all that marble in the shower, the fixtures will be oil rubbed bronze.  The shower head and arm are Lowe's Symmons. 

The shower knobs are Lowe's Giangni. 

Moen oil rubbed bronze shower drain from Home Depot. 

The shower door is Lowe's DreamLine Unidoor with oil rubbed bronze hinges and handle.

 Ballard's Gwyneth Buffalo Check fabric in Spa will be used for the one window treatment needed in the bathroom {this is the same fabric that I used for the bedding}.

The curtain rod is Pottery Barn Essential Endcap Finial Drape Rod in Cast Iron {this same rod will be used in the bedroom}. 

Last little details...hooks, toilet handle, paper holder, door handle, and wall plate.  All from Lowe's or Home Depot and all ORB.

Another look at everything laid out together, bring on the {country} spa day.
