This DIY bathroom valance is made from repurposed barnwood and it is simply gorgeous. You could do this over a traditional bathtub as well as a clawfoot tub and it’s a pretty easy valance to make. Once you have the valance complete, add some lace curtains to really get a farmhouse look. You can even use reclaimed wood for this one so it won’t cost you anything.
Architect Greg Tankersley and designer Carol Egan conjured a Greenwich retreat that's the perfect blend of pastoral comfort and urban style, with the master bath as perfect proof. The tub by Kohler has fittings by Waterworks, the Hans J. Wegner stool is from Wyeth and the 1970s Luigi Caccia pendant light is from Bernd Goeckler. The Thassos floor tile is from Fordham Marble and the walls are sheathed in Venetian plaster.
If you want to create a new look in your bathroom, but want to avoid a complete interior overhaul, consider tweaking your color scheme and decor. A few simple changes can create an entirely new vibe without going over budget. Design a bathroom with color and styles that truly speak to you. Since it’s the room you spend time getting ready in the morning and preparing for bed, it’s important to create a space the boosts your energy and offers you a quiet respite from your busy schedule.
"I always start with the stone when designing a bathroom, and that begins to inform the color palette. Pale Oak partners well with most marbles, enhancing the vein in the marble, but equally works to soften a dark tile. Be careful, it can go gray or beige depending on the light. Personally I love that about it, but depending on the space, it can be tricky."
Over the past four years we have gotten to know the owners and employees at Ace as they helped us through having water in the basement and so many other issues.  Each time we come in, they spoil the girls! We spend a lot of time buzzing around there getting supplies for our latest project or quick fix. They offer everything we need and more importantly, are so helpful when I wander in alone and have no idea what I need.

This DIY chevron burlap bathroom sign is really cheap to make and pretty easy, too. You need a strip of plywood, some burlap and some white paint to make this one. You will also want some wooden letters, which you can get at the Dollar Store or at any craft store. You could do “Wash” or anything else that you wanted as far as the lettering goes. This is a great rustic looking sign that will take you about an hour or so to finish.

Even if you don’t have large windows scaling your bathroom wall, you can introduce your fondness for nature in other ways. Stone or wood will emit the natural look, while mint green and white colors will ensure a refreshing feel. Clean lines will help reiterate the modern theme you’re going for—these square sinks work well in a rectangular shaped room and panel windows.
