Thanks so much for all of your amazing comments on that bathroom.  You know how to make a gal feel good!

There were a few questions so I thought I would answer them here.

"Is there a sink in the separate toilet area?"  Yes there is.  Not sure why I didn't get a picture of it.

"What is under the vase of flowers" [you guys are observant!].  
I got it at HomeGoods.  It's a piece of petrified wood.

"What is that small niche in the shower?"
It's a place to put her foot while shaving her legs!

"Give me some details about the tile"....I have to admit when we went looking at Floor and Decor I thought since it was such a small bathroom we would just stick with 2 selections.  The "wood" floor tile was the first one we selected because I am sure you will never know when it is dirty:)

We selected the shower tile next and then spotted  the glass tiles and I thought it would frame the tub nicely.  Paint would have done the same thing but the tile added more interest.  

Another factor was that I like a mix of shiny and dull.  Think about the reclaimed wood against the shiny mirrors and then with the countertops being kind of in the middle.

The soaking tub was the first thing picked and the whole room then designed around it.  Before the sledgehammer swung.....everything had been ordered and was sitting in the garage which made the renovation proceed smoothly.

Now on to Scott's.  I took a quick trip down there on Friday and to tell you the truth I had not been in about 2 months.

The minute I got there I realized why I love it so much.  

Cause where else can you see cute dogs in cribs?

And all of these wonderful things.

Like great fabrics.

And pillows....

My weakness....

And other things I don't need but wanted.

I'm not really a wreath person but I was digging this one.

Vintage green velvet chairs.

Beautiful rugs.

And these gorgeous pressed plants....
From Sweetgrass Botanicals.  Love.

I have some vintage ones I purchased about 15 years ago and I'm still crazy about them.

They used to be in my LR
And now they are in my guest room....

 Just one more thing.  

I went to get some lunch and ended up getting a soda and a chocolate chip cookie.  I don't know what came over me:)

Anyway I ran into a few people after that [one I knew] and Christy who works for Lacefield Designs.  When I got in my car I noticed had chocolate all over my face.

a. I can't believe my friend Mimi did not tell me.
b. What a great impression I must have made with Christy. 

Can I even be trusted to leave the house anymore?

I am happy that Friday raced here this week.  It's a Scott's weekend so I know y'all will be getting your "shopping" on!

I finally shot the modern/rustic bathroom yesterday!  I love when clients want something special and these guys took it there.....

Let's take a look....

How about some before shots.  These are scary so beware.  If you have ever renovated before you know that the last month before they come in with sledgehammers you just kind of give up on the space:)

Here is the same angle now!

The toilet got moved to a whole different area

Another before angle....

Hello...this is the 80's....can I have my tub back.

Close up of the pulls....

No door for the shower.

We had to take out the windows but added 2 skylights.

Here is the drain in the shower.  Cool huh!  The floor slants down.

OK...back to a before.  To the left of the tub was the vanity.

And then the shower.

The star of the room is this soaking tub.

I love the rustic mantel against the glass tile.

This beautiful photography was done by their neighbor.

Some great hooks from Etsy.

So you are thinking....where is the toilet.  Well it got moved right outside in the bedroom...

Here are a few detail shots.

This is a close up of the Cambria countertop

We used the Kohler Claxton undermount sinks.
