    • Fresh Take

      Gone are the busy furnishings, flouncy ginghams, and dark jewel tones once synonymous with country style. As this remodeled guest bath reveals, today's country style embraces a look that's fresh and unfettered using updated patterns, simple lines, and airy color palettes.

       

      The soft grays in the room, reminiscent of a weathered barn, are brightened by creamy white walls and splashes of sunny yellow.  Central to the design is a clean-lined open-shelf vanity custom-made from pine that's stained to elicit an aged patina. 

       

    • Freewheeling Fabric

      A simple café curtain made by the homeowner adds a soft touch to the room and introduces the only pattern. Flowery pinwheels of soft grays, yellows, and white unite the color palette into this free-flowing design. Yellow tulips provide a bright dash of color.

    • Serene Strokes

      The roomy walk-in shower forgoes a cumbersome door allowing the polished white marble to take center stage. Soft gray veining in the marble provides a visual connection to the weathered look of the vanity. Although the marble was purchased as contemporary 12x12-inch tiles, they were cut in half and installed in a more vintage-flavored running-bond pattern.

    • Easy Going

      In country styling, functional objects offer their own form of honest beauty. Storing towels, soaps, and toiletries on the vanity’s open shelves introduces dimension, color, and texture while making it easy for guests to find and retrieve what they need. Baskets and other containers keep necessities tidy while adding additional touches of carefree country charm.

    • Bowled Over

      An unpretentious white vessel sink rests on the simple pine countertop. A gleaming contemporary faucet offers the stylized look of an old hand pump, which reminds the homeowner of a vintage wash basin and pitcher.

    • Pretty & Practical

      A glass shelf inside the shower keeps the marble surface uninterrupted while providing a practical spot for shampoo, soap, and other necessities. A single lever below the shelf controls the flow of water.

    • Easy Maintenance

      Installing the halved 12x12-inch polished marble tiles with slim grout lines makes it easier to clean the shower walls and simplifies the look. A ceramic end table stands in as a perch for shaving legs or holding showering supplies.
