I can NOT believe this is my final home tour in our current home. When we moved in, I remember how overwhelmed I felt. All I wanted was to finish the house. Now that it’s done, I wish I had gone slower and enjoyed the process more (especially in the beginning) … a lesson for next time, I guess.
Today, I’m here to share the studio bathroom we put in in our basement (to go with my husband’s recording studio). This is the only room where the before/after doesn’t make any sense, but I’ll show you anyway. This is the bathroom “before” …
At least you can see here what we started with and where this little half-bathroom is now located.
The face of a woman who learned SO MUCH from this remodel. Also, I still need to get those imperfect stairs fixed … haha.
The design in here is small but mighty! I am so proud of it. The wallpaper is from Hygge + West, one of my favorite spots for wallpaper. I actually got it on clearance when it was going out of stock, but I loved it so much and I had to have it.
The sconces and mirror are from Schoolhouse Electric. I LOVE them.
The sink and hardware are from Rejuvenation. I love the gold with the rustic sink!
Small but mighty, right?
The Marfa print is from Kelly’s print shop. I want to go to Marfa soon!
So proud! (never mind the one missing light bulb, OK?)
For scale. 🙂
I’ll be back soon to share a roundup of all my room tours from start to finish. To be clear, I still want to share a LOT of home projects, I am just done with the before/after tours now. Oh! Except for the big video tour—I still owe you that one! It’s kind of funny how rushed I felt at first and now I don’t want it to be over. Crazy.
Hope your day is lovely! xx – Elsie
That sink & towel holder are so cool!
And your overalls are adorable, Elsie!
I have a question about the Cactus: Real or fake? I ask because I have struggled with greenery in the bathroom and wondering how you approach!
I think we need more acknowledgment of how brilliant soap-on-a-rope is!!
I echo Hannah’s comment. Can you speak to the reasoning behind the steps to the bathroom (at least in the comments here)? I assume it was to not have to trench the plumbing into the concrete slab?
Love what you did with it!! Looks so good! Thanks for sharing, hope you are having a lovely day.
I love it! I second Hannah’s comment, I would love to hear/see more details about the construction. A “guide to working with contractors” maybe? Where the conversations start and how to get your vision across etc. Lovely work!
Are the plants real? I’m guessing there’s not a lot of sun in here. If they’re fake, where did you get them? I ask this knowing full well that they more than likely aren’t available in Canada. ????
Hi! The cactus is real. :))
Absolutely lovely!! I would love to read more about the process it took to get here- obviously from the before picture this was more of a construction project; it would be super interesting to learn about the steps that went into it and the decisions you had to make along the way!
Thanks so much Hannah! I will keep that in mind next time we do a big renovation. Going into this house I honestly never realized people would like to see all those details. This renovation was a LOT so I think the “ptsd” of it erased some of my memory- probably for the best. 🙂 xx
Love this bathroom. In my small CA studio this would be ideal.
Looks wonderful! I’m curious — what was the reasoning for the floor height increase + steps up into the bathroom? Did you run plumbing under a false floor to avoid tearing into your slab or adjacent walls?
The soap on the rope is a perfect touch. I doubt I would have thought of that!
This home has been such an inspiration! I look forward to using some of your ideas for my home. The sink is uniquely beautiful!
Oh my goodness, for a second I thought you were moving! Congrats on being “done”. For a little while at least.
That is the cutest sink. 🙂
Isn’t it adorable??!
Thank you 🙂
Wow, the wall is so pretty! Love, love, love your style! ❤️✨

Haha 🙂 Thank you!
