Sharing another bathroom renovation today! Earthy and warm, it’s a shared bathroom for Dot and Edie. Here’s some details, and a before image…
The before! Here’s what we had to work with. Old vanity, lighting, shower, cabinets, and that all too familiar green carpet that ran through the entire home!
We tore it all out and put a bath down where the shower was. Dot still takes baths and we had taken a bath out of the primary bathroom which would have left us with zero baths in the house. To make a bath fit we did have to open the wall slightly. You can see the portion of the wall sticking out to the left which was an easy spot to naturally open up.
We also closed the second door that connected this bathroom to Edie’s bedroom. This may become a controversial move in the future when she enters her teens, but in my experience jack and jill bathrooms always lead to accidentally locked doors and just general annoyance. The one bathroom door now opens up to a hallway between the girls’ rooms.
And here’s the after! A pretty crazy transformation, right? I love the warmth and feminine feel but also sophisticated and modern. I think it’ll be a bathroom they’ll enjoy now and for many years to come!

For the tile, I partnered with Fireclay which was a dream. They’re hands down my favorite tile company focused on sustainable practices, and gorgeous handmade products. This shower tile is their Adobe in 2 x 8.
Fireclay is Certified Climate Neutral, and the factory uses 100% renewable electricity. Through partnerships with Carbon Fund, Pachama, and Climate Neutral, they work to offset carbon emissions from all parts of their operation. You can find out more about their mission, process, and sustainability practices here.
I have to say, I was perhaps MOST excited about this tile project working with their new earthly line of colors. The Adobe is SO stunning in person. In the 2 x 8 size we decided on a vertical stack lay as it’s a small bathroom (smallest in the house), and with such a pretty earthy color I wanted to feel that it connected the earth with the sky (big sky here in Montana!).
On the edges of the shower we used finished glazed tile pieces, and for the little nook here we used an antique brass schluter edging which matches some of the brass hardware. The grout color is avalanche.
The shower hardware is Delta Trinsic line in Champagne Bronze which we also used in the primary bathroom and a black version of the same line in the downstairs bathroom. In this room we mixed the champagne bronze color with antique brass. Perhaps this is controversial here, but I think too much of the same metals feels a bit too matchy matchy.
The floor tile is the 3 x 6 White Wash, part of Fireclay’s Quick Ship (so convenient) and their Foundations line of more affordable options. We used the same floor tile for all three bathroom renovations for some continuity.
You can see here how the floor tile looks with the shower tile, and how the metals are a bit mixed. What do you think? I do debate that the champagne bronze and antique brass are too similar. Could end up switching out the vanity hardware at some point. That’s an easy change.
Jared actually did the floor tiling work! Amazing, right? We were anxious for another bathroom while waiting for our tile guy to return from MIA status, and so Jared did it in just a couple days. He’s getting to be quite the tiling pro although it really is grueling work.
Here you can see detail of the floor with wall tile. You can also see what those pretty glazed finished edges look for the wall tile going up the wall.
Really happy with how it’s all turned out. These colors make me so happy in here!
