Pulling It All Together - Clean, Simple & Fresh Master Bath

Our Master Bath isn't large, but it is big enough that two of us can get ready and not bump into each other.  However, like all bathrooms, pictures are really hard to take.

Looking in from the bedroom, this is the view you have of the vanity area.
Decorating the Master Bath

I like for the bathroom to have simple decor that doesn't take up too much counter space, so since I have been adding a little bit of tangerine color to the rest of the house, a simple bouquet in a white ironstone pitcher works great here.
Coordinating bathroom colors to bedroom

 The walls are painted a soft camel color and I tried to match the towels as close as possible with the exception of the soft aqua hand towels that tie into the bedroom accent color.  You can see some aqua candles and a  paper rose bouquet on the tub ledge.

 We always have fabulous light from this window, perfect to put your makeup on and that soaker tub is wonderful after a long day.

 A little luxury when having a nice long bath.  Now I can have a glass of wine, or the family joke is "if it has been a really bad day, I'll just take the bottle and a straw".  Now I've never really done that, but it sounds good. lol  I have devoured every page of this book by our fellow blogger The Nester.  It is a great read and super source of information and inspiration for your home.
Tub caddy for your bathroom

I love having everything cleaned and fluffed.  Now I can enjoy getting ready every morning.

  6. I really like your light fixtures above your vanity. Mine are very 90s and out of style. Would like to get something like yours. I've been enjoying your tangerine you've been showing, I think it's the new hot color.
    Dawn @ We Call It
    History & Home link party, Tue-Fri, weekly - join us!

  7. Our bathrooms are very small..but we each have our own. Which helps. Your bathroom is lovely.

  8. I just love your bathroom! Can I have it? LOL!! My bathroom has little counter space and very little wall space. I am in the process of redecorating and replacing a vanity in my bathroom so it's great to see yours and get some great ideas.

  9. Great bathroom and I love all the light you get from the window! We have no window in our main bathroom!

  10. Very neat and fresh looking, Marty! My sink area set up is very similar and all I can say is thank God for double sinks! : ) Because we are in a condo we don't have a window in here, but the lighting is really sufficient to be able to put make-up and see what we are doing. It was hard to get used to not having a window since I had one in each of our 2 1/2 baths at the old house. Well, every room in our house had a window so that is the only downside to the condo.

  11. So pretty and so clean looking. Very nice bathroom.

  12. It looks so pretty, Marty! I could certainly soak in that tub! Love all of the light you have too.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)
