You’ll Want To Wake Up Every Morning In This Pretty & Petite Bathroom

Designer Mélanie Cherrier was tasked with transforming a spare bedroom into a principal bathroom that flowed with the rest of the century-old home in Montreal West, and her plan was simple: incorporate old pieces with new accents that have timeless appeal. The 95-square-foot room she created proves that luxury can be found in even the smallest of spaces. A vintage wooden perch is ideal for keeping essentials handy while elegant new panelling gives the white envelope its Parisian flavor.

Imagine waking up to heated Carrara marble floors and starting the day with a sun-drenched shower. Its this pampered feeling that Mélanies hardworking clients wanted, and she certainly delivered. A cleverly placed window lets natural light into the shower.

A white oak vanity and cabinet reiterate the historical vibe and add warmth. “I wanted a soft and serene look that would age beautifully,” says Mélanie.

How They Did It

  • Hexagonal Carrara marble floor tiles
  • White palette warmed up with mid-tone white oak cabinets
  • Lots of natural light, thanks to two windows
  • Elegant panelling and crisp subway tile
  • Warm burnished brass fixtures and accent pieces
