My Bathroom ...


I get sooooo many emails about my ensuite bathroom.  It's shown in the opening to my blog.  I thought I would show you the rest of the space and list the paint colours for those interested.
It was featured in Canadian House and Home ... four years ago now?  Shot by Kim Christie - my crazy ginger nut friend.
I designed it, my husband made it happen.  We knocked down walls, moved the plumbing, did some of the best cussing of our lives, and after 6 months, finally created my dream loo.


I wanted a tub to escape too.. seperate from the shower!


I wanted his and her sinks, and a water closet.  No need to explain either of these desires!


My husband wanted a large walk in shower where the curtain wouldn't touch him!  He has issues with that - fair enough, lord knows I have my own book of issues.


The floor is heated, which is just lovely.  We added a window on the east side of the room to give sunlight in the early day and more light to the room.  I love windows and natural light.  The curtains were made by my sweet mom, as is the terry cloth cover for the stool.  The stools is so essential - especially since I had Lily.   Everything came from Home Depot - I love them!  It's affordable, fun, and if you make the right choices and mix up the styles a bit, you can be completely original.

 The blue on the walls is called Bluebird by Sico –  The code for it is 6161-31.
The white I used is called Polar Bear by Behr – code is W-F-200 
The water closet and bathtub are painted Sico Anticosti Grey 6161-41

Lovely bathroom, Heather. I understand why hubby didn't want the shower curtains anywhere near him - isn't it horrible when the shower curtains just wrap themselves round you by static in cheap hotels?

Angela said...

Yum. No cold clingy shower curtain and heated floors. Sounds like heaven.
How lovley to have that much space. That's about the size of my house!

Goodness, who knew a bathroom could make my mouth water? As a daily bather (washing away the cares of the day) this is definitely envy inducing. You did it yourselves? Loud applause.

It is just gorgeous. I would live in there...

Catherine said...

I love your bathroom and the color!

mimi charmante said...

as a girl without a bathtub, really, what can I say...? I would probably keep your address to yourself as if I get ahold of it, well, you just may find me one day in your tub when you arrive home...

Oh My Goodness!!! I remember this bathroom from H&H..........wow you lucky girl to actually call it your own. Great job, wonderful colors............just dreamy!!!

Catherine said...

Bathroom renovations ~ I think that's the #1 cause of divorce - no? Haha! I learned lots of new cuss words as well when my hubby redid our bathroom ~ but my soaker tub was worth it!

Your bathroom is truly divine! The colors so crisp and clean ~ very lovely! And heated floors? You are a lucky lucky girl! :)

I'm delighted to see more of this room, and have mentally constructed its floorplan with a view to possibly achieving such a sense of space in our much needed main bathroom remodel. The sense of fresh prettiness is perfect, and I like how it's not too overtly feminine. What large ensuite bathrooms you have over there! Mine is a cupboard in comparison.

Oh-so-marvelous! LOVE your use of color. Everything is so perfect. Great job!

I have a point in my life that I remember as the best cussing ever.
Fabulous!!

I remodeled my bathrooms recently too! Went with a glasssed-in walk-in shower that doubles as a steam room. All my kids want to use my shower when they are here! I did a bathtub in the guest bathroom 'cause some people much prefer them. Both bathrooms are island-flavored and sunny colored which is fun.
I love the soft blues and whites of your bathroom and would have LOVED to have a water closet (we all need privacy!), but had to make choices.

Vanessa said...

Always loved your bathroom. Nice to see the whole room - great job!

Pinecone Camp said...

A great loo Heather! I'm with Kevin about the shower curtain thing....makes me bonkers!

Robin said...

Simply breathtaking! You two did such a wonderful job. Love it!

Vintage Simple said...

It's gorgeous, of course - and I love that you guys did all the work yourselves and cursed all the way through it. I can certainly relate to that one..! At any rate, you guys did a fantastic job. Bloody fantastic, in fact.

it's such a bright, happy place, as every bathroom should be really.
and kevin is so right, that is just the worst when it sticks to you.

The shower is divine, and the Buddha adds a nice glam yet natural touch. You obviously love it to use it as your blog header. :)

tiffany said...

Such a beautiful room--all your pictures here are gorgeous! I just found your blog and have loved reading your older posts too--your commentary makes me laugh--especially getting the shot of your little girl in the dryer and your mismatched (peed on) tennis shoes. so funny :)

That is my dream bathroom. I love your tub and would enjoy looking at it but I'm just not a tub kind of person so I know I'd never use it - but the lovely roomy shower now, bring it on!

Jennifer said...

The curtains are ADORABLE. It's just such a lovely bathroom--how do you ever leave it?

OK..I totally remember seeing your AMAZING bathroom in that magazine!!! I remember lusting after it at the time, and still am today! Fabulous!
I just stumbled into your lovely blog, and I'm so excited to read your previous posts!! I live in Ladner, and am an organic-obsessed, shabby chic kind of gal :) I'm envious of your acreage! We are craving more space around us right now, but nothing perfect has popped up around here.
