Holiday House Bathroom Before & After



Super excited to share the holiday house bathroom before and after reveal with you all today. This room feels like a totally different space—it’s crazy! We worked with Delta Faucet for this room makeover. Long before we got the opportunity to work with Delta, we were fans of (and already had) many of their products. Not only do they have really cute products in a variety of colors/styles, but they are also crazy functional and affordable. It’s basically the perfect mix of what we love for our own homes, so we were excited to add a few favorite Delta Faucet items to Elsie’s holiday house. But first, let me show you a little before and after in case you forgot what this bathroom looked like when we purchased the home late last year.

This bathroom was an addition to the original home. I really love that the previous owners decided to add a third full bathroom because it definitely increased the value of the home, and it certainly made this house more attractive to us when we were deciding what house to buy for Elsie’s Springfield home. Many older homes, like this one from the 1920s, will have very small bathrooms that can feel a bit, well, cramped. This bathroom did not have that problem. However, the other two bathrooms in the home had been designed with a mostly black and white palette, including black and white tile that felt appropriate for the age of the home. This bathroom just felt very mismatched to us, so that became our main goal. We aimed to design this bathroom to look more like the other bathrooms in the home while also getting a few functional upgrades and design features, such as the Delta Vesna Bath Faucets, available exclusively at the Home Depot. When picking out fixtures we decided to go with Matte Black- we’ve used it in other bathrooms and think it is a great style that adds a lot of contrast to the space. The Matte Black also has a nice timeless feel which adds to the character of the room. I am especially in love with the Delta In2ition Shower Head, as it has a couple different speeds you can use when showering (and a pause button—which to me is perfect for when you’re shaving your legs and don’t need a heavy stream for a couple minutes, but maybe that’s just me?).

Even though we kept the bathroom mostly black and white, we left the cream trim that was already in the room (and throughout the rest of the house), added a vintage wooden mirror, and a wood bead chandelier just to warm the space with a few wood touches.

This bathroom is just off the master bedroom and second living room. It also contains the laundry nook for the home behind two folding doors. I am SO thrilled with how this room turned out!! I can’t wait for the Larsons and guests to use this room when they stay this year. Thanks for letting me share! xo. Emma
