Vintage-Inspired Bathroom Renovation

You'd never know this charming bathroom was once filled with avocado-green fixtures.

Emma Doucet and Sébastien Labelle of Ottawa won 'Best Budget' in the 2009 Design Contest for their dramatic bathroom renovation. The homeowners stripped the original bathroom down to the studs and refloored, retiled, restored and redecorated. Vintage style is imbued through unfitted fixtures, polished chrome hardware and a classic black and white tiled floor. An old brick chimney was exposed in the corner and echoes the texture of the new subway tile installed behind the bathtub.
