A Modern Guest Bathroom Renovation

Since buying our first home, Quinn and I have been slowly but surely renovating and truly making the space ours. This includes our dining room update and the plans for our kitchen renovation that is currently in the works. Next on the agenda, we are tackling a guest bathroom renovation. The beautiful etched line details of Étoffe’s Feathery Clouds Wallpaper provided major inspiration and a great starting point for the vibe of the space. Pairing a neutral color palette with mixed metals, and a black hexagon tile floor, the final design beautifully balances tradition with modern elements – my favorite.

Overall, we want the space to function beautifully as a guest bath now while doubling as a guest + kids bath in the future. The cloud wallpaper adds a whimsical feel that bridges the gap between kid-friendly and grown-up, while the finishes help to elevate the design. Scroll below to see what we are planning for our guest bathroom + shop some of my favorite pieces below.

Arched Mirror

If you dream of stunning arched windows like myself, this mirror is an easier, more affordable way to get the look. The unique, architectural shape and black iron finish are the perfect pairing.


Clemente Sconce

These matte white and antique brass sconces are the loveliest balance of traditional and modern.


Étoffe Feathery Clouds Wallpaper

Wanting the wallpaper to easily grow with the space, Etoffe’s cloud wallpaper works both for the current guest bath and in the future as a shared kids + guest bath.


Public Goods Shampoo + Conditioner

I swear by everything Public Goods; especially their shampoo and conditioner. It keeps my scalp healthy and hair shiny. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that their packaging perfectly matches the bathroom color palette. Be sure to enter code: ANASTASIA for 50% off your first order.


Black Soapstone Bowl

I love having a small dish in the bathroom for placing jewelry. It’s one of those thoughtful details that guests will really appreciate.



I’m all about nickel. When mixing metals, nickel is the perfect complement to brass without being too matchy-matchy.


Teak Vanity

There is so much to love about this teak vanity starting with the door detail and carrying right on through to the freestanding design that gives it the feel of a mid-century credenza.


Ceramic Subway Tile

Because our tub is white, I wanted the shower surround to match while complimenting the off-white background of the wallpaper. Plus, how could I say no to the beautiful, handmade vibes?


Bath Brushes

These bath brushes are a must. They’re what I call functional + beautiful decor.


Hexagon Floor Tile

Because the floor needed to provide contrast and really anchor the space, I chose this matte black hexagon floor tile. Bonus, the wood pattern replicates the hatch marks in the cloud wallpaper.


Bath Towels

Turkish towels are perfect for guest rooms because they are so versatile. Guests can not only use them in the bathroom, but they can take them out to the pool as well. 


Shower Curtain + Rings

Linen shower curtains will forever be a staple. I sourced nickel rings that match the faucet and will be hanging the curtain high to give the illusion of a taller ceiling.
