Moodboard Monday: Relaxing Open Bath
This mood board was created for my bathroom renovation as a guest participant on the One Room Challenge. If you think this mood board looks familiar, that might be because it’s an adaption from my first board Moodboard Monday Blissful Bath. This bath is a part of an open concept master suite meaning no doorways. Their bath is supposed to be a private retreat for the homeowners, reminding them of their first hot holiday getaway.
The mood the homeowners wanted in their bath was relaxing. They were inspired to create their walk-in shower oasis after experiencing one on their first tropical holiday to Hawaii. With an increasingly busy life, they desired a calm place to shut themselves off from the world of ringing cell phones. Keeping in mind their love for natural materials and a simple space with rustic touches, this mood board pretty much fell together.
Bring It To Life
The first step in creating this mood board was choosing the shower tiles. A large porcelain tile best showed off the stone imagery. It’s a light color to keep the shower from feeling too dark and enclosing. Then the marble mosaic floor tile was picked for its complementary colors, but in a slightly darker shade for a visually grounding effect. It’s also a nice touch having actual marble (natural material) in their bathroom.
The luxury vinyl planks bring wood tones to the room and contrast with the glossy white cabinet and white carrara countertop. Vinyl planks are a great option for a wood-like flooring in wet locations. And there are so many color options!
A warm gray was picked for the walls. I like to use skin-tone friendly colors for bathroom walls where it’s expected that someone will be putting on makeup in the room. And the warmer tone ties all of the gray and brown material colors together.
There’s a mix of matte black and polished gold finishes in the open bathroom. And it’s done on purpose! The new cabinet pulls and faucets are black but the original light fixtures, which the homeowners plant to keep, bring a golden sparkle to the room. You no longer need to stick to a single metallic finish in your home so mix and match as you please.
