Masculine Bathroom

The last couple of months have been a whirlwind for me, to say the least!  I am doing a lot more remodeling projects with a fantastic Indianapolis based company that is really keeping me on my toes.  Multiple bath and kitchen remodels, entire house renovations, decorating finished projects.  It has been amazing and a blessing to keep so busy.  I have a trip to Alabama for some design work coming up next week.  (more on that later!)  Last week, Summer ended and Fall arrived!  :(  I have a love/hate relationship with Fall.  Did you notice I changed the look of my blog?!?! Woohoo!  Thanks Dinosaur Stew for designing my new site!  So many fun things going on right now!!

Staying busy means really staying on my game!  It's different everyday.  Decisions need to be made quick.  Designs are strategially put together, with no second guessing in between.  I am more organized than ever!  And my nights are usually filled with design inspiration and research on Pinterest and Houzz!

This bathroom remodel is in a gorgeous home, with a not-so gorgeous basement bathroom for their son.  They had such a clear vision of what they wanted and the mood they wanted to capture, that it was just up to me to help them pull it all together for them.

What I love about this bathroom is the sophisticated, masculinity it has.  The industrial touches, moody colors, mixed materials, all give it a manly feel.  

We will replicate the mood and colors of this space, but not copy it.  These are the design details and plan for the bathroom.




Vanity - Custom Cabinets // Mirror - Pottery Barn // Industrial Vanity Light - Shades of Light // Plumbing, Faucet - Brizo Odin Collection // Towels - West Elm // Towel Hook - Anthropologie

I chose Eider White from Sherwin Williams for the wall color because it looks great next to the subway tile, and being a small basement bathroom, it will brighten the space and make it feel larger.  It is a very light gray color.  Elements of Style used and the same paint color in her bathroom renovation, and it looks great with her subway tile on the shower walls.


Not all of the walls will be subway tile like the inspiration photo, but we wanted to incorporate more subway tile in the space than just the shower walls.


So, I designed the space to have subway tile behind the vanity sink and toilet.  It is a great design element and functional as well because it is easy to clean.

I had to find the perfect, modern and simple mirror for the space because that was going to be a big focal point in this small bathroom.  I wanted something industrial and vintage looking with just a simple black frame.

After seeing this image on Pinterest, I loved the look of the round mirror.  So, I searched for something similar and found the perfect mirror with just the right dimensions from Pottery Barn.


I chose the Odin Collection from Brizo for all of the plumbing fixtures because it is modern, masculine, and industrial with the matte black finish. 


It was important for the client to have a fun, quirky towel hook for hand towels next to the vanity.  I love this aged brass finish of the antler hook, but I also gave the client a couple of other options too.  Think outside the box when it comes to towel hooks.  There are a lot of things that can work as a hook that aren't necessarily sold for that purpose.


This masculine, industrial bathroom remodel was designed to stand the test of time.  It is a classic design that will work for their son for many years to come.  And will also be a great guest room bathroom in the future.  Can't wait to see it all come together and be completed.
