The Acorn Cottage {Before and After: Master Bedroom}

The master bedroom is not a large room but quite the cozy one. We decided to use lots of whites in differing tones to keep the smallish room light and bright. Touches of navy also gives the room a classic vibe.

Here is the master bedroom on May 11, 2018:

And here is the master bedroom today, September 21:

I am still in need (want) of a Roman shade for the window. We did keep the shutters in the window from the previous owner. The shutters will work for now, but I'd like to incorporate a graphic navy/white pattern in the Roman shade.

We started the redo with a new upholstered bed in white with nail head trim. Monogrammed pillows (of course) with each of our monograms are on the shams. A Hunt Sloem fabric lumbar pillow in a matching color scheme completes the look. 
Above the bed is a wooden, golden sunburst mirror. Two mirrored chests flank the bed, and two new lamps in white and navy sit atop each.

I am so happy to finally have the Aidan Gray mirrored sconces hard wired alongside the Audubon Blue Heron. An antique Empire desk sits beneath the framed print.

We added the open butcher's shelves to hold the TV, books, and other fun accessories which give life to the room. The Empire style dresser adds the right amount of storage. J's grandmother's brass, glass, and marble lamps are cherished and are perfect in the master. Flossie! Flossie! Flossie was his very favorite person ever.

The bamboo 6-light chandelier is from Ballard Designs.

Master Bedroom, y'all!

The Acorn Cottage {Before and After: Smaller Bath}

I am in love with the way the smaller bath turned out. Used by J mostly, this bath features his monogram (for those who were asking). I would never leave out a monogram. Black and white is also the color story in this bath. I simply adore its classic look.

The small bath today, September 20:

Subway tiles again covers the walls along with black trim. My favorite part is the free-standing, no door shower enclosure. I have used the shower several times, and there is no water splashing into the bath. I also like how the vintage handles are on the wall to the right when entering the shower and the shower head is to the left. The niche also features the penny tile flooring. In the smaller bath, we decided to go with all white and use a darker grout color. I am happy with the look.

The vanity and cabinet were both replaced with wooden, black pieces. I too adore the sconces with their Edison bulbs and the bead trimmed mirror.

The Acorn Cottage {Before and After: Large Bath}

There are two baths at the Acorn Cottage. Both baths were totally transformed, so today I'll share the larger of the two.

Here is the larger bath on May 11, 2018:

Dated much?

And here is the larger bath today, September 19, 2018.

I love the classic look of the black and white bath. White subway tiles and black trim replaced the dated tiles. The floor was replaced with the black and white penny tiles. I love how the installer carried the penny tiles into the shower niche.

I adore the chrome legs of the vintage-look sink. The open area is perfect for a basket of color-coordinated towels. The frameless mirror is a Pottery Barn find as well as the sconces. The custom shower curtain and Roman shade in coordinating black and white are both by Fairfax Fabric Company. There is nothing better than custom fabrics. The wallpaper is one of my favorite things in this remodel. I know a lot of folks are either pro-wallpaper or con-wallpaper, but I wanted something interesting in the bath. The graphic banana palms in charcoal with a hint of silvery-gray adds some oomph to the black and white. I am so very happy with the way it looks.

The contractor kept the storage cabinet/laundry drawer at my request. The blending of old and new is of interest to me.

And it would not be the Acorn Cottage without monogrammed towels by Pottery Barn.

It is hard to believe the bath even looked like the before photographs. I really do love how the bath turned out.

Large Bath, y'all!
