Featured Project: Sleek + Modern Hallway Bathroom

Room re-do’s are always fun, but getting to design a space from scratch is a designer’s dream! This hallway bathroom was one of my favorite projects. My client wanted a sleek and modern design, with clean lines and a neutral color palette.

For the bathroom tile, my client wanted a subtle and neutral beige with a waterfall accent tile to elongate the size of the room. These warm, yet modern tiles make the space feel larger and more luxurious.

  • Floor:  Mariner, Mainstone, Greige 12 x 12
  • Shower Floor:  Mariner, Mainstone, Greige 4 hex Honed
  • Shower tile: Mariner, Mainstone, Greige 12×24 vertical staggered
  • Accent:  Waterfall  JC, Chapter 14 Duality Trifecta Blend, Global Grey #14501
  • Grout:  Laticrete #17 Marble Beige

I was lucky to find a beautiful Cambria Berwyn quartz remnant for the countertop, bringing significant savings to my client. Remnants are smaller pieces of stone which can’t be used for full countertops – making them perfect for vanities, stepping stones, fireplace hearths, and so on. They’re far less expensive than a full-size slab, and you still get amazing quality and durability.

I choose fixtures from Moen’s 90 Degree collection – for everything from the hand-held shower head to the toilet handle! I love this Moen collection for its simplistic, modern look.  We went with the brushed nickel finish, which is one of the most durable finishes and right on point for the modern aesthetic. Not only is it easy to clean, but it also doesn’t easily show wear, fingerprints or water spots – a must for a busy hallway bathroom! 



For the lighting – which can make or break the look ad feel of a room – I went with a 4-light vanity fixture from Feiss’ Cupertino collection. It’s contemporary design was the perfect accessory for this clean and modern bathroom. And bonus, it’s upscale look didn’t come with an upscale price! I also think it’s nice when the light turns down, versus an up-light. Just my personal preference, but I think it works beautifully in this space.



To finish off the look, I selected an oval mirror with a ruffled edge from Uttermost. It’s antique silver finish was the perfect touch for the room. These silver starfish were a fun addition to the space, without being too flashy.
