Makeover Miracle- From outdated to sophisticated and elegant bathroom!

Today, I will be featuring a fantastic makeover by blogger and incredibly talented interior designer, Carla Aston from Design In The Woods. When I saw what she did with her client's dark and outdated bathroom and how she turned it into this beautiful bathroom, I was beyond impressed. She definitely had vision and impeccable taste. Check this out!


My eyes were immediately drawn to the gorgeous onyx tiles on the wall. The tiles definitely provide a wonderful visual interest and deliver a 'wow factor' in this vanity area. 


 The addition of classic antique brass fixture and hardware create a sense of warmth and timeless elegance in this bathroom while providing a cohesive color palette with the tiles on the wall.


The gorgeousness continues with the installation of beautiful mirrored upper cabinets in the vanity area to reflect light and for added storage.


Details are not overlooked in the shower either. Shower seat, shower head, toiletries niche, window sill were incorporated for functionality.


The old closet door was replaced by a sliding mirrored door to avoid blocking foot traffic when they are open and to make the small space seems more spacious. A rolling ladder was also added to the adjacent closet for easy access to the upper storage area. What a smart idea!
