My Retro Flamingo Bathroom




When we bought our Toronto bungalow two summers ago, we knew we had our work cut out for us. Our kitchen and bathroom clearly needed a full renovation. When we found out I was pregnant, we decided to prioritize the bathroom, knowing being pregnant and bathing a kid in there would be difficult. it was beyond hideous, and barely functional. No shelving/storage, a broken bathtub, and my favorite feature - hitting my knees against the tub while sitting on the toilet.

Feast your eyes of these horrifying before photos.


Now that we got that over with, here's how we updated it.

TJ and my brother in law Lucas and his dad Bill came up with a functional new floorplan.  We knocked out half our pantry to create additional bathroom space and built a little sink nook. Bill made custom wood shelves to hold my black glass bowl (Kijiji find!) sink. I love how it turned out.

The floors and backsplash are from Saltillo Tiles, installed by our friends at Ceramico Tile.
I love how the black tile and white grout turned out. Bold choices for the win.


 I've been dreaming a spot for this fabulous wall mural by Coloray Decor. They make beautiful self-adhesive murals that are much easier to install than wallpaper, look gorgeous, and are removable without damaging your walls.


My absolute favorite part of the reno is our faucets. Delta faucets have a stunning line of champagne bronze faucets, which make the bathroom feel so luxurious. My shower head is the best because I can rinse my hair (or water my plants!) with the removable hose and have a rain shower at the same time. Plus it's pretty. I strongly suggest investing in a good shower head if you're planning a bathroom reno. It's 100% worth it.
At the last minute I changed my mind and ordered a wall mount faucet, because how cool is this? 
This faucet along with all of the champagne bronze accents (hello gold toilet flush) are from Delta's TRINSIC line. I love how clean and simple these pieces are. 

There you have it. A hideous beast of a bathroom turned into my own tiny bathing paradise. Thank you universe for my talented and hardworking family. These guys worked so hard to make a bathroom reno dreams come true and I'm extremely grateful.

Now I'm off to enjoy my 41-week pregnant flower bath. 


Much love,

Mercedes
