Our Bathrooms Revealed

September 10, 2018

While designing our kitchen, I fell down the rabbit hole with all things Fireclay Tile. So when we moved on to picking colors and shapes for the bathrooms I had a stack of inspiration images and different directions we could go. Caitlin Flemming helped us massively in this department, coming up with a cohesive look throughout all three bathrooms—master, guest suite and Elin’s bathroom—and picking out colors at the Fireclay showroom in person. Sticking to our overall goal of a modern, clean style for the house we used sleek Kohler products from fixtures and toilets to vanities and mirrors, and Schoolhouse Electric  sconces. I couldn’t be happier with how all three of these spaces turned out and how beautifully they mirror each other and the rest of the house.

Guest Suite

As I mentioned before, in our previous home we didn’t have a room for our guests to stay in so this was so fun to design and later style for friends and family. Because this bathroom gets the most light we went with the Kohler Jute vanity in Mohair Gray complimented with Fireclay tile (white gloss and Daisy), white vanity mirrors and U/2 sconces from Schoolhouse for a modern vibe. Because the light is so good in the bathroom I’ve been using it for most of my beauty content on Could I Have That?

This is easily my favorite bathroom because of the floor to ceiling stacked tile we did on the vanity wall. The colors ended up being so perfect with the Kohler white oak vanity mirrors. We used the same hexagon tile in Gypsum in the shower and outside of it creating a seamless look. The overall feeling is just how we pictured it—contemporary and clean. I added a bench from Diani Living in the shower (primarily to shave my legs, ha) but I love how it brings in a natural element to the modern vibe. The very last element installed was the Ellerbe sconce by Schoolhouse. It was like the cherry on top, the rounded shape adds a soft touch that I absolutely love, plus it gives great light for putting on makeup!

“I love the juxtaposition of modern design mixed with natural wood and baskets. “

In our master shower we added a rainhead which I have been loving for leisurely showers. I add a bit of Eucalyptus oil on the ground for an spa-like experience—feels so fancy! We also used the Purist showerhead and shower arm and flange

I love these white oak Jacquard mirrors that bring in that natural element that we love. Originally we thought these mirrors would go in Elin’s bathroom but they looked too good against that wall of stacked 2×8 Fireclay tile in tusk. Black tray is from CB2. 


This was the one bathroom we knew we could have a little fun with, so we found another playful geometric design by Fireclay, the Hexite pattern in Blue Spruce, to use for the floors and complimented it with stacked 2×8 tiles in Blue Spruce in the shower/bath. The soft gray/blue ties in so nicely with the rest of the house. Having the double shower doors for the bath was genius because it’s incredibly convenient for giving Elin baths and looks so sleek.
