My Sister’s Modern Primary Bath Reveal: Before & After

Who doesn’t love a big bathroom reveal? Today I’m sharing my sister’s serene zen inspired primary bathroom renovation! 

Get the sledgehammer and get the party started!

My sister Elizabeth and her husband have been working on their primary bathroom renovation for a couple years now. One way to make sure you can’t go back is to take out a wall and that’s what Bill did first.

They live in a house that was built in the mid 80s but the 70s influence in all their bathrooms was still going strong. 

The primary suite is a “me” time space

Elizabeth’s vision for her new bathroom was modern and zen. Living in a house with kids and all their stuff she wanted it to feel like a calm sanctuary and have that extend into her bedroom (not shown). I have to say, too many people neglect turning their primary suite into the luxurious retreat it should be.

So I’m delighted she’s finally treating herself!

The fun part! Shopping for accessories

After the bathroom was finished we went shopping to style it! Since her new vanity was a cognac one from Home Depot (so they saved some money there) we repeated the orange tone with a copper mirror that was installed behind the bathroom door (below).

The next thing was art. Once we found the picture that captured the zen vibe Elizabeth envisioned for this space, I had a lot of fun pulling in colour and pattern with different coloured towels to coordinate.
