I’m so excited to finally show you the full reveal of my parents’ Modern Hamptons-style ensuite bathroom!
If you’ve been following the journey on the blog, you would probably remember the in-progress construction snaps of this ensuite that I shared last year. A lot has changed since then – so come on in and let me show you the finished room!
Like virtually all my room designs, this one started life as a mood board. (We used this mood board for both bathrooms, so some details only apply to the main bathroom rather than this ensuite.) But never fear, I’ll be revealing that room next.
We started with a white-on white vanity with the same Shaker profile doors we used throughout the house – including in the kitchen and laundry. The benchtops are white quartz, and we used matt black tapware to add a contemporary twist.
But I know you’re not looking at the taps right now. Let’s talk about that gorgeous mirror! It’s a scene-stealer for sure.
After hunting high and low, and even getting quotes for a custom-made mirror (which turned out to be ridiculously expensive) we finally managed to source this beauty: a gorgeous bone-inlay look mirror that is the perfect size and style for this space.
The bold black and white pattern makes a real statement and adds so much drama to the room, while still feeling quite classical.
It has brought everything together beautifully. I’m so in love.
Let’s talk layout so you can get a feel for how this room flows together. For the life of me, I couldn’t fit everything into one shot. So I’ll talk you through it instead.
When you enter the ensuite from the Master bedroom, the vanity is on your left, and the shower is on the right.
It’s quite a large double shower with semi-frameless glass doors.
The patterned floor tiles flow into the base of the shower, while the white subway tiles continue on the walls. The toilet is tucked away behind that shower wall.
This shot is taken from inside the bathroom, looking back out to the bedroom. You can glimpse the gorgeous plantation shutters we used on the bedroom windows.
And here’s a sneak peek of the Master bedroom, which I haven’t shown you yet, and how it flows into the ensuite.
We still have no artworks on the walls in the bedroom, and I think Mum and Dad have sticker shock from all the money they’ve had to outlay to furnish a new home from scratch! – so I can’t reveal this room properly just yet until we finalise a few more details.
But you can see the gorgeous pale aqua, taupe and white scheme we used to dress the bed – it is dreamy!! I wanted to pick up the taupe and white of those pretty patterned floor tiles and use that in the bedroom as well.
A cavity-slider creates privacy in the bathroom when needed, but also withdraws completely into the wall to create an open feel the rest of the time. It feels like their very own private dayspa.
We used matt black accessories throughout – black knobs on the cupboards, black cup pulls on the drawers, black robe hooks and towel bars… even a black shower head.
I love the crisp contrast of black and white: it’s elegant, classical and also bang on trend.
The walls are tiled to the ceiling in a lovely white subway tile with slightly uneven edges, giving them an almost handmade look. I love how they bring a bit of texture to the white walls.
We styled the bathroom with Turkish towels in a soft grey and white stripe. I love the tasseled fringes. It’s little details like these that really finish a room.
A little potted succulent and a terrazo-style soap dispenser (both from Pillow Talk) continue the simple black-and-white theme.
I bought this little peace lily to add some greenery to the room. Peace lilies are my go-to house plant because they’re nearly impossible to kill. (I have actually managed that feat, because I’m talented like that. It just takes me longer than it would with other plants.)
The stool and basket are from Pillow Talk.
I love how the pattern on the basket echoes the pattern on the mirror frame, as well as the softer taupe pattern on the floors.
Those little hits of black really pop in an otherwise white-dominant bathroom.
So there you have it – our Modern Hamptons ensuite bathroom. I’ve listed all the sources together for my Aussie readers who’d like the info!
