Blue and white bathroom with white countertopsMake a statement in your bathroom with these five key additions and designer tips.

Lighting: Hanging pendant lights bring light lower than most mounted fixtures do, reducing shadows in the mirror. Interior designer Katelyn Rountree selected these Fjord Cord pendants in Matte Black from Cedar & Moss.

➋ Two-Level Countertop: This Caesarstone “Frosty Carrina 5141” countertop was designed so that the homeowners’ daughters each have a defined individual space beside their sink.

Cabinetry Color: Katelyn chose Sherwin-Williams’ serene Labradorite SW 7619 blue paint in a gloss finish for the vanity and mirrors.

Mirrors: These custom mirrors were affixed to the window frames of this historic home because changing the location of the windows was not a viable option. According to Katelyn, hanging them this way allows for plenty of natural light to fill the room.

Flooring: Katelyn kept the vintage feel of the room with hex gloss porcelain mosaic tile. Find it at The Tile Shop.


Katelyn Rountree’s tips for designing a bold bathroom

• Brighten up a bathroom using glossy finishes that reflect light. Select materials for window treatments that allow natural light to stream through like these custom linen Roman shades by M2M Designs.
• Choose “timeless bold neutrals” and balance them with crisp, modern white surfaces.
• Add a surprise with lighting. I used three pendants versus the more-expected choice of two fixtures flanking the mirrors.
• Decorative hardware, like these mother-of-pearl drawer pulls from Anthropologie are a fun design twist and can easily be switched out for a completely different look.
