    1. Thank you so much, Jennelise! When I think of moving this is the room I’d miss the most – enough so, that it might be the thing that makes us stay here… 🙂

  3. Simply lovely….love the RELAX…I’m a big fan of words…calm and soothing and well done…N.

  4. Beautiful, Lory! Elegant and relaxing. We have the claw foot, but it was a mistake. The jacuzzi tub is in my son’s bathroom, lol. We re-did our master bath 12 years ago – I am miserable with some of the choices, and yet, it’s too expensive to re-do it all. A year ago we talked about re-doing some of it, and then, I couldn’t decide whether it was worth it. I think it’s time!

    1. Thanks so much, Amy! It’s funny – we all make some mistakes that are too expensive to un-do. I have a sofa in my den that I’ve wanted to get rid of since the day it arrived. Now I’m finally ready! I think the thing I realize now is that it’s a mistake to listen to other people. Only you know what you can live with and when other people talk to me about practicality or what’s good for re-sale value, I know I’m headed for trouble. The claw foots are quite pretty, though. But if you really use the tub, it’s nice to have a place to put things nearby. Perhaps a little table next to it? Thanks for stopping by!

  5. What a beautiful space! You have the perfect sign for it! I really liked the container where you store your cotton balls. So, Old World and classy! I also love the little nook for your perfumes. It’s perfect!

  6. Your bath looks beautiful! We used a very similar accent tile for our pool. Thank you for partying at THT!

    Your bathroom is beautiful. I love the calming colors. I would like to know where you got your faucets I have been hoping the chrome and brass mix would come back, I have these now but they need replacing. Thanks

    1. Thanks Tifnay! The faucets are from a place called Hardware Designs in Fairfield NJ. I believe they are Milo, but the key thing is the custom finish – satin nickel and the S rope escutcheons are PVD brass. Thanks for stopping by… 🙂

  8. This is exactly what I want to do for our Master renovation….I love everything about this! Well done❤️

    Everyone needs a sanctuary! Yours is lovely and you can escape from stress. FYI…leave your phone in the kitchen so you won’t be tempted to work! Enjoy! ?

    1. Love that idea! I started leaving my computer downstairs this year, so I wouldn’t wake up and start working immediately… 😉

    Lory—
    Your new ensuite is just beautiful—timeless and classic. I love how you use such pretty containers for all your everyday supplies. I believe little details like that can elevate our daily lives. Enjoy your new space!!

    No photo of the tiny bath with the stairway?

    1. I know! I wish I had one. It would be really hard to believe. I can look back through my old photos. I know I have a video of my daughter when she was younger standing in there. There’s hardly room for anyone else in the room!!

  12. Your bath is wonderful and definitely relaxing is the right word! Absolutely adore the little antique perfume bottle since I have a small collection myself. Wish I had chosen a medicine cabinet but went with hanging mirrors!
    Thanks for the peek inside your bath! or Spa retreat!

    1. Thank you, Vicki! With the right size linen closet I can see foregoing the medicine cabinets, but I do still think they’re very convenient over the sink. I have a few more baths to work on and may just do hanging mirrors in my daughter’s bath. What I really don’t like (and I still have them in two bathrooms) is those large flat mirrors with no frame that builders typically use. I can’t wait to get rid of the ones I have left… 🙂

    So pretty! I love it! My medicene cabinet also has a framed mirror look. The inside of the door is also mirrored and that’s a big plus since I can get close to the mirror without leaning over! When we moved into our house, the medicene cabinet was on the wall opposite the sink and there was a wall to wall mirror behind the sink and toilet. I thnk that was supposed to make the room seem bigger but storage was a problem. I couldn’t build on so I put in a bigger vanity with drawers and took the wall to wall mirror down. The pretty framed medicene cabinet is over the sink and I put in a small towel bar for hand towels over the toilet. I took out the old small medicene chest, and the towel rack below it, and patched the wall. The new shower door “handle” holds bath towels. The room is still small but it’s pretty and functional!

    1. I like the changes you made. It sounds like you really did the best thing for your space. I’m definitely not a fan of those wall to wall mirrors and we still have two of them left. Those are next on the list of renovations to do. All in good time… 😉

  14. Oh for a master bath! No matter how hard I might try, there’s no room in our small house to add one. But we did redo our main bath last year which is a small 7×8 space. We removed the combo tub and shower and replaced it with a walk in shower. It may not be a romantic space but the patterned floor tiles give it a bit of a modern country look.
    Remember the days when a whole family shared one bathroom?

    1. I always say I’d rather a smaller beautiful space than a larger space I don’t love. Your main bath sounds lovely!!

  15. Michelle Buzek says:

    This is beautiful! I have similar accessories in my bath- a vintage creamer and sugar set hold my cotton balls and a-tips! Thank you for all your beautiful posts and decorating ideas!

    1. Thank you, Michelle! I do love my vintage accessories… 🙂 I have another bathroom post coming later this week on our townhouse bath. Even more vintage in that one.

  16. Lynette Carter says:

    So glad you got to have your larger bath. However not having a separate potty room would be a must for me.

    1. Thanks! And that’s pretty interesting. I do have one in our townhouse master bath, but I must admit, I never shut the door. The bathroom door, yes, but not the little potty door. Do you close yours?

  17. Elizabeth Roderick says:

    I love the counter top. Such a calming color. Great Choice.

  18. Really a lovely functional bath, I personally don’t like the HUGE bathrooms, that you would probably get a chill in—and I prefer a cocoon type feel. Your room is welcoming and will withstand the test of time. Great REDO!

  19. Beautiful relaxing spot. I can definitely relate to your “before” situation. My 100+ year old home has bathrooms the size of very small closets, not even large enough for vanities! Not much room for any vintage accessories however most of the existing fixtures are vintage so there is an element of charm.
