Dress up a new tub to create an antique look.
The space was small enough that Mandy could splurge on high-end tile. Hexagonal Bluestone marble floor tiles are paired with classic honed Statuario Perla marble subway tiles for walls. The combination provides a neutral but striking backdrop for the room. Mandy knew the cost to reseal and refinish a vintage clawfoot tub would eat up their budget, so she sourced a present-day model, hand-painted it a rich, matte black, and plated the feet in patinated brass. A linen shower curtain and dramatic brass rod give the tub presence.
