When Steve and I bought our home two years ago, this bathroom was a room that I fell in love with. The previous owners had updated it with marble flooring and a white vanity, which was the perfect base to work off of. I was excited that without too much construction, we could give the space more of a custom and classic look!  

Since this bathroom would be used both by the adults and kids in our house, I wanted it to have a really casual feel that mixed modern with more traditional elements. I loved that the vanity was all white, but it still felt a little standard. We used two Cassidy Widespread Faucets in Polished Nickel from Delta Faucet to add in some character. The faucets have a lower arc, so they don’t feel too serious, and have a really pretty profile. I chose the cross handles, and I love the classic traditional look they give the space.    

The previous faucets were chrome, and changing them out for the polished nickel finish made all the difference. Even though they are both silver, the chrome had cool blue undertones. I love how much warmer the polished nickel is and how it complements the countertop. It reminds me of that classic old home charm!

The existing hardware on the vanity was brushed nickel and was really chunky with harsh lines. To soften it, and to complement the new faucets, we went with new hardware in polished nickel. The delicate profile gives the vanity a more timeless look. 

I always love mixing some modern elements in with a classic design. It gives a space so much more depth and interest. For the wall sconces, I chose a polished nickel fixture with a milk glass shade, and I love how it plays in with the old home look. However, for the mirror, I went with a black metal frame. It adds just a bit of contrast into the space, and the rounded edges keep it from feeling too harsh.

One of my favorite details in old homes is the millwork and trim detail. It adds so much interest and texture to a space and really makes it feel custom. The vertical shiplap feature wall behind the vanity gives just enough detail without feeling too formal. I love how it adds another layer to the space and contrasts the subtle curves in the faucets and hardware. I love how the contrast of modern and classic pieces gives the space a new traditional feel!
