Master Bathroom- Woodard

It’s a great Monday today because we are waking up to fall temperatures!!! I don’t want to jinx it but I think Fall has finally settled in to stay here in Houston. We were able to open our windows over the weekend, which is such a rarity in the South because of our insane humidity here, BUT we hit the holy grail- cool mornings, mild days + low humidity. HEAVEN!!!

I'm back today sharing the final design plan for the spec home in the Lindale Park neighborhood on Woodard Street. Last time I shared the two secondary bathrooms upstairs, and today is all about the master bathroom. I knew from the beginning that I wanted this space to feel spa-like and to be light + dominantly white. I assumed I would use a white subway tile on the shower walls, but I also didn’t want just a standard tile since this is the master bathroom. I found a 4x12” artisan subway tile that has this beautiful uneven edge that gives each tile a little character. 

To up the wow factor, and to compliment the Carrara Marble counters, I brought in a marble hex for the shower floor + a mini marble brick accent band for the shower walls. The floors are a 12x24” faux Limestone-look ceramic tile.

I chose brushed nickel, wide-spread faucets for the sinks + tub for a classic look. 
To prevent the space from feeling too matched, and to add a little warmth, I’m bringing in a few brass accents (this also connects back to the first floor bathroom). Brass bath light fixtures + cabinet hardware. The silver mirrors also has a small brass detail tying everything together.

And here is the master bathroom all rounded up.

I’m really pleased with how this home is coming together, and need to share updated construction pictures because it’s really been transformed in the last few weeks. After the walls were painted I decided it needed something else, so I had all the white interior doors painted gray (if you follow me on Instagram, you’ve already seen this picture). They made such a big difference and brought a custom touch without going too taste specific. 
Can’t wait to share more progress pictures of the tile work soon! Have a great week!!!

Secondary Bathrooms- Woodard

Welcome back from the weekend and welcome to October! This is the time of year that I miss living in Iowa most- the change of seasons, harvest, and crisp mornings, warm days and cool evenings. We did have a small glimpse of fall this weekend, which was enough for me to give myself permission to go buy mums + pumpkins for my front porch… even if it’s supposed to be back in the 90s this week. I just received a few fall-scented oils that I ordered so I’ve been diffusing those and managed to switch out my summer chalkboard art for a fall one. So regardless if it’s still summer in Houston, it’s fall ya'll at the Pudenz house!!!

Work has been rolling right along and I have some REALLY exciting news about my business that I can hardly wait to share! Hopefully will be able to post about it here later this week if everything goes as planned.

Last time I shared the kitchen + first floor bathroom for a spec home that I’m working on. My goal for this home is to keep it light and bright with a cohesive flow throughout, which is dominantly gray + white with a few darker accents. There are two secondary bathrooms upstairs- one connected to the game room and a Jack & Jill bathroom between two bedrooms. I decided to keep these spaces basically the same except for the mirrors and lighting.

Both bathrooms feature a gray hexagon floor with a pale gray high gloss subway tile on the shower walls, which offers contrast from the very pale greige walls + white cabinets. The under-mount sinks are set in white granite countertops with a light gray veining throughout the slab. I selected brushed nickel faucets throughout all the bathrooms in this home. 

The Jack and Jill bathroom is sort of long and narrow so I liked the idea of breaking that up by using two round metal mirrors with a contemporary 2-light fixture above each.

I used a dark metal mirror in the game room bathroom as well, but chose to use a rectangle with an interesting frame detail with a brushed nickel 3-light fixture above.

I think both spaces feel classic, but with a modern, industrial twist. 

I’ve saved the best for last and will be sharing the master bathroom plan next week. I went a little more high-end with the tile selections and it’s going to be a beautiful space once it's completed. Painting will wrap this week and the countertops are currently being fabricated and should be installed soon. After that will be tile and flooring. Always a fun push these last few weeks in any home! Will hopefully have more progress pics for next time as well. Have a great week and fingers crossed I’m able to check back in this week to share my news!!!
