Our Austin Casa || The Terrazzo Guest Bathroom Reveal

I asked and you answered loud and clear that you would like rooms revealed as we shoot them– in other words, as soon as possible, please and thank you!  We were actually in touch with two publications earlier in the year that were interested in shooting and publishing our home, but as I scrambled to find the right furnishings and finishes, I realized I was rushing the process.  As we reveal the rooms here on the blog, they feel complete to me and I love them so much, but in a lot of ways they’re still the first draft. They’re not filled with the eclectic types of pieces yet that we’ve stumbled upon and collected, made and refurbished. I really don’t want to rush that process just to check some boxes, so I’m excited to get everything shot and published for you now and will revisit the editorial process in a couple of years when it feels more lived in.  Anyhow!  The guest bathroom…

Aaron says this is his favorite bathroom in the house and I can’t blame him, although the master still has my heart! I designed this bathroom with my friend, Claire Zinnecker. I really had my mind set on terrazzo floors in here, but didn’t know where to begin.  She sourced these beautiful tiles and helped me make decisions on a lot of the finishes, too.  If you’re not following her on Instagram, do! She’s a wealth of interior design ideas and just a beautiful, bright light, too.  (You can see the design post for this space here! All of the sources are linked at the bottom of the post, too.)

We went with a really modern and simple design in here– stack bond 2×8 white tiles for the walls in and matte black Delta faucets in addition to the terrazzo tile floor made for a perfect starting point for the rest of the space.  Next, I really wanted to warm it up with a warm wood vanity and these tan terra pendants from Cedar & Moss. Honestly, if I could only choose one lighting source to use for the rest of my life, it would be Cedar & Moss. I love, love, love all of their lighting selections, especially these clay pieces which are a bit newer.  We have sconces in the other two bathrooms, so I liked the idea of doing something different here with the pendants.  The mirror is from Rejuvenation, another shop that I could likely source my whole house from.  Just such great pieces and quality.

The door hardware is from the Schlage Bowery Collection in Matte Black and we love them!  We used the collection throughout our whole house.  The cabinet hardware I found on Amazon from a company called Top Knobs… obviously!  They’re the 4″ pulls in black. (All links below!)

 

 

Let the record show, that I believe that stylish pre-made bathroom vanities are really hard to come by for some reason.  I love our Kohler one in our master, but otherwise I haven’t had much luck sourcing others, so this one and Parker’s were both custom made by our cabinetry guy who did our kitchen cabinets as well. They’re rip sawn white oak and we love them so much!  I also love that they’re drawers and not cabinets. They stay so much more organized!  (PS. I heard that Room & Board is about to launch bathroom vanities for all of you lucky ducks who haven’t already made your selections yet. I love everything they do, so I’m sure they’re going to be great!)

So now I have to know, which bathroom is your favorite?! This design or the master?! Do tell!

      I just updated the link! I think it was linking to a smaller version earlier!

  3. I love this so much! What grout color/brand did you use for the walls?

    • Jen Pinkston

      04/17/2018

      The grout color is platinum on the floors and walls– I think it’s a universal color for all brands.

    This is a beautiful room (those terrazzo floors!), but I agree with you. The Master is my favorite. 🙂

    Just a heads up- I think the H&M vase links are not the same vases in your photos. I bought them from the link and was shocked how small they ended up being.

      Oh no! I’m so sorry about that Madeline! I just updated the link!

  6. I am a new reader and i’m finding your site amazing. your home is like my dream home… mid-century design with an organic feel. I even gasp when I saw that you INPUTTED terrazzo floors in your bathroom! I love that you kept mid-CENTURY touch while still KEEPING it modern.

    I will stay tune for the rest of the rooms 🙂

  7. Hi Jen!

    I’m obsessed with this bathroom. Thanks so much for sharing the resources!

    One question: Do you happen to know what the tile trim pieces are around the Niche? I’ve been searching online for something like that and I’m just not finding anything that long.

    Many thanks!

      Hey Kris! I don’t off the top of my head. Let me do some digging!

  8. Love this bathroom! Who is your cAbinet guy? We’re remodeling our master bath right now and i’m not liking the semi-custom options i’ve seen. I Would love tO use a talented local craFtsman.

  9. This is my FAVOURITE for sure! In fact, i think I’ve just tweeked our CURRENT BATHROOM renovation to incorporate some of the things i love about this room. Would love to know if your wall tiles are matt or gloss? Thank you!

  11. Oh boy, I love this bathroom so much! Every detail is perfect. I especially adore the terrazzo. Curious: did you apply any nonslip stuff to it? If not, have you found it to be slippery?

    • Jen Pinkston

      08/10/2018

      Hey Anne! We actually didn’t apply anything to the surface. It’s a guest bath so it doesn’t get used that often. When my nephew spends the night, we always put out a floor mat, but otherwise it stays how you see it here and we haven’t had any problems. That said, I can see how it would definitely be slick when wet.

    I’m in Love! This is my dream bathroom. You nailed every it! From the floor, to the mIrros And right down to the Drawer pulls. INcreDible!

    2 quesTionS for you:

    1)what color Is that Countertop and which brand?

    2)the cedar & Moss lights. You mention you used the color Sand but i’m not seeing that color on the site. They have bone listed. Is that the one you used?

    Thank you so much for sharing a peek into your home with your followers! So appreciated!

      Hi Anegla, the countertop is Caesarstone Fresh Concrete. As for the Cedar & Moss lights, it looks like they aren’t carrying that color way any longer. The bone is definitely a lighter, creamier hue than these are, but still a nice neutral!
