Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day, but I believe your bathroom is the most important room of the day.  A great morning routine plays a key role in getting your mood set for the day and ready to carpe diem that sucker – or whatever your motto may be.  It is important to have a space you enjoy that sparks joy.

I LOVE our master bath.  The cool tones, natural light, and fun light fixtures make me happy every single day.  That and our awesome shower speaker that lets me blast Hall & Oates while I’m getting ready.

This room is full of playful textures that keep it interesting: the smooth and polished carrara marble against the hard concrete-replica porcelain Eleganza varese tile; the industrial lighting fixtures vs the soft capiz shell floral pendant; the classic shape of the faucets against very modern mirrors.  It all works and it all makes me happy.

We were also able to triple our storage in this bathroom from our previous.  A place for everything and everything in its place makes for an organized bath and an easy-to-navigate morning routine.

And let me tell you, morning showers in here are a complete dream.  We splurged a bit here: we have a standard shower head, a rain shower head, and a steam unit which leaves your skin feeling like a baby’s butt.  The glass panels allow a ton of natural light which makes waking up all that much easier – every bit helps on a Monday, amiright?

On the contrary, having different lighting options also help when going to bed.  The sconces over the mirror are very bright – which is great for applying make-up, but can be rather harsh when getting ready to hit the hay.  I am such a fan of this Pottery Barn Capiz Pendant because not only does it cast a magical shadow around the room, but it also radiates the perfect amount of soft light that you can brush your teeth, wash your face, and whatever you do before hopping into bed without feeling too awake — or reawake if you are like me and find yourself falling asleep on the couch most nights and just kinda sleepwalking into bed.  Source list below.
