Today is the day you get to see the whole guest bathroom all put together! I recently installed the striped wallpaper and now the whole look is complete. Read on for the entire marble guest bathroom reveal.
Marble guest bathroom…or is it? If it quacks like a duck and walks like a duck, it’s usually a duck (or so the saying goes). However, in the case of my marble bathroom, IT AIN’T A DUCK! The very first thing I selected when designing this guest bathroom was the floor tile. It LOOKS LIKE REAL MARBLE but it’s a fraction of the cost with little to no maintenance. That’s a win for me. My floor tile is actually a ceramic marble look-a-like from Floor & Decor and runs $0.99/piece. On average, real marble tiles of the same size would run $3-$5/piece. To add my own design flare, I laid the tile in a parquet pattern. I love the visual interest it adds.
Guest room shower details
Since this space is our designated guest retreat, we opted out of a tub and went with a walk in shower. If you’ve been following me for awhile, you’d know the adjoining guest room has a bit of a coastal vibe. I even painted an ocean ombre wall as the feature wall.
Where am I going with this? Well I had a plan all along, even before the actual guest room wall was painted. The guest bathroom shower walls are covered with this white scallop mosaic tile reminiscent of the beach.The grout color is Frost, a light gray. Design Tip: Ensuites should feel united. Carrying design elements from the bedroom to the bathroom create unity and flow. White always feels fresh and clean, so I carried the white tile to the floor and finished the shower with this herringbone porcelain mosaic.
All of the tile in my guest room is from Floor & Decor. It’s honestly one of my favorite tile shops because of its gigantic showroom with a wide variety of in-stock products that I can WALK OUT THE DOOR with. Do you know how rare that is? Most tiles need to be ordered and take weeks to arrive. I know at Floor and Decor I can find top quality products I love at a prices I can afford. They also offerfree design services available to everyone.
Guest bathroom vanity & hardware details
The guest bathroom vanity is a custom design by me. It has all the storage necessary for a guest bathroom. The counter top is New carrara quartz (not marble either) and it’s painted Simply White by Benjamin Moore. The cabinet hardware is polished nickel (same brand throughout my home) and matches all of the other bathroom hardware throughout. The faucet is even polished nickel. I am usually more of a mixed metal gal, but in this space the polished nickel just felt right. I did however sneak in a brass light fixture and warmed up the space with a bamboo mirror (again think bleach) and some wood picture frames.
Guest Bathroom Wallpaper
I looked at a lot of wallpaper options all carrying shades of blue. I wanted to add just a touch of color without being too overwhelming. I finally landed on this navy blue pin striped pre-pasted paper. I think the classic stripe was the perfect pattern. It adds sophistication and interest without competing with the “marble” floor pattern.
The rest of the details are accessories that complete the color story and bring added function for my guests. These coastal prints add just the right amount of color don’t you think? I always stock extra bars of soap, shampoos, lotions, and luxurious towels for all my guests. I want them to feel welcome. All in all, the interesting mix of patterned tile in this “marble” guest bathroom reveal are the gems of the design. You can shop all my bathroom furnishings and accessories below.
