Beach House Dreams

It’s finally here, the unofficial start to summer!  I don’t know about you, but I feel like I blinked and March, April, and May flew by, but at the same time, it feels like its March 137.

The weather this weekend definitely feels like summer which has us dreaming of the Cape house renovation we completed last year.

Tell me this master bathroom doesn’t feel just like the beach on a sunny day?  From the sand-colored tile floor to the beach glass herringbone backsplash, the whole thing reads “serene day at the beach.”

Walk-in tile shower master bathroomBeach Glass Inspired Tile

Let’s start with this tile.  We took a beautiful beach glass inspired tile and ran it in a fun herringbone pattern behind the sinks.  We then took that same tile and ran it as an accent in the shower. This is a great example of how you can take a simple 2×6 subway tile and make a splash with a geometric herringbone pattern instead of a standard subway tile design.

Repeating the tile in the shower creates continuity in the design and provides a fun detail.  We’ve been loving a vertical accent rather than a horizontal accent lately.  It gives the allusion of higher ceilings by drawing the eye up.  The full wall of backsplash rather than just a 1ft splash at the counter serves the same purpose.

Double Vanity Dream

This gorgeous white double vanity is a dream. With three banks of drawers, there is plenty of storage.  The bright white finish keeps the bathroom feeling warm and airy.  We love how the white looks with the beach glass tile.  It plays well with the day at the beach theme. Plus the warm floor paired with cool tones balances the space and keeps it summery.

Zero Entry Shower

This beach house was designed to age with our client, so a zero-entry shower was important. To provide a delineation from in and outside the shower, we varied the tile used.  The small squares pair very nicely with the large sand-colored tiles we used at the main bathroom floor.  It was finished with a glass shower enclosure which makes the shower feel spacious.

Glass Hardware

These oversized glass cabinet pulls make a huge impact on the space.  We really believe that cabinet hardware is the jewelry of your room, and should be treated as such. These pulls are simple but elegant.

A Little Greenery Goes a Long Way

When it comes to staging a bathroom, you don’t want to overdo it and clutter the space.  These large leaves provided a gorgeous pop of green off the soft palette we created.  Just a few leaves give us all of the decor we need to allow the design of the bathroom to speak for itself.

Simple Mirrors

When the tile layout is this interesting, you don’t need to make a big impact with the mirror frame. But this simple mirror is still gorgeous with the rounded corners, the frame’s depth from the wall, and the faux hanging knob at the top.

We hope this gorgeous beach themed Cape Houe bathroom has you feeling ready for summer, even if we can’t head to the beaches quite yet.
