My Favorite Room.....Sweet Chaos Home

I am so thrilled to be a part of Kim's favorite room series. I have loved seeing all the beautiful and inspirational spaces that others have shared, and I'm happy to welcome you into my favorite room.

Please don't be alarmed when I tell you my favorite room is a bathroom. I know a bathroom is not the obvious choice as a favorite spot (Unless you're a guy. Then I think it would be considered perfectly normal.)

Welcome to our master bathroom...




Our master bathroom was completely overhauled in 2011. It was my first attempt at designing a total room remodel, and I loved the process of planning the layout and choosing all the materials.  Documenting our experience is what propelled me into the world of blogging.




You see, the bathroom started out looking like this...


The combination of wallpaper, carpeting, a ginormous swimming pool bathtub, and a shower and toilet crammed into a small water closet made this my least favorite room in the house.

After a complete gut job, removing walls and moving plumbing, the toilet is now in a separate water closet, and we have a large open shower.




I love the spacious shower, and I don't miss cleaning glass one tiny bit!



The vanity area is light and bright, and the cabinetry provides ample storage.






I selected finishes that would appear timeless, such as carrara marble countertops and chrome bridge faucets.






One of my favorite things in my favorite room is my antique chandelier. 




At the end of an exhausting day keeping up with a traveling husband, four young sons and a big ole dog, there is no place I'd rather be than in a hot bubble bath in my favorite room.



I'd love for you to come visit me at Sweet Chaos and check out the other rooms I'm working on! Our house might be chaotic, but we have a lot of fun.

Kim, thank you so very much for allowing me to share my favorite room with your readers. You have been such a wonderful blogging friend to me, and I'm so grateful to you for all your support and encouragement.

Thanks, Carolyn, for sharing your stunning master bathroom. I remember gasping the first time I saw it.

Alright everyone, you will want to see more of Carolyn's beautiful home so please hop over to Sweet Chaos Home to see much more.

  28. Beautiful bathroom. What is the source of the towel bars next to the sinks.?I'm looking for something small like that. Towel rings are not my thing.

  29. I love your bathroom! Especially the open shower. I would LOVE to have a shower like that, but I'm afraid I would end up splashing water all over the bathroom. Just wondering if that is ever a problem?
