1950s bathroom – and fireplace

We are also tackling the fireplace which the owners want to revamp.  The white painted brick, the brass and glass doors (yikes), and the overall height don’t go with the low-slung mid-century feel of their living room.

We’ve removed the mantle, a few rows of brick, the pinkish stone hearth, and the doors.

The tile we’ve selected is Luxor Grey by Ann Sacks.  It’s a long thin tile that will accentuate the horizontal lines in the room.  I laid it out to get a good mix because the natural stone is slightly varied in color.

Now back to the bathroom:  We’re down to the studs to install the new window, frosted glass for privacy.  We’re going from horizontal to vertical with the window.  Everything has been removed; the tile, the entire shower, the vanity.

We put insulation in where there was none before.  More to come!
