How To Warm Up Your Bathroom: Chic Gold Accents

Mackenzie and I found our new home the day after we got back from our honeymoon last year, which set off a whirlwind of events that led us to move in just 2 months later! Whilst this was already a beautiful house, we were set on spending our time making it into our home, and one of the largest parts of that was refurbishing the master bathroom. It was definitely a labor of love to say the least, but it was important to me to get it all just right (did I mention I’m a bit obsessive when it comes to interior design!? You should see my pinterest boards!)… Our bathroom is the place I begin getting ready for the day ahead, where I chat to Mackenzie before we go out for dinner, and where I take a deep breath and slide into a hot bubble bath after a long day. I believe so firmly on the importance of making it a tranquil personal sanctuary you love – I even wrote a whole chapter on it in my book, Front Roe. With that in mind, we made some big changes to the original bathroom (and by big, I mean we gutted the whole thing from floor to ceiling!), changing the single sink into a double vanity, lining the floors and walls with Caesarstone quartz, and adding much more storage. But for me, it was the stylish finishings that made the biggest difference to how much it felt like our bathroom.

I love gold (as you may have noticed!) so I knew from the beginning that I wanted to have gold accents in the finishings. Gold-tones are obviously much warmer than the typical furnishings for bathrooms, which are usually chrome or stainless steel, and I love the softer, warmer finish that bestows upon the whole room. We chose ours from Brizo, who have an amazing range of high quality furnishings – I knew immediately it had to be the Litze collection! We went for their brushed-gold finish in the Litze Bath Collection, which is a beautifully simple, yet intricate design, inspired by the Bauhaus movement of the 1920’s. I particularly love the brushed effect because it takes away any danger of the gold tone looking too glitzy 80’s and overwhelming. I knew I loved the items when we chose them, but only once they’d been fitted and the rest of the bathroom was finished, did the whole thing really come together – it was so gratifying to see our own ideal bathroom come to fruition.

If gold isn’t for you, but you’d still like a finish like ours, then I’d suggest choosing nickel. It still has a warm, golden undertone to it. Let me know what you think of these beautiful furnishings and how you’d style them in your own dream bathroom!
