Home Tour: Downstairs Bathroom

My lower level bathroom is the next installment in my Home Tour posts.  This bathroom is downstairs in my finished basement and serves the family room, bar, guest bedroom, craft room, and my home office (yikes, that sounds like a lot of rooms!).
Just like the rest of my house, I picked everything out 6 years ago when my condo was being built.  So, there are a few things I would do differently, but overall I still really like this bathroom.  You know I love the green walls!
I love the octagon tiles on the floor and the subway tile in the shower.  Such a classic look that doesn't get old.
The sink and faucets are the same ones I used in my master bathroom.  The countertop is a solid surface from Wilsonart.
Here's the tile floor & subway tile in the shower:
And storage cut-outs:
I bought the glass jar at Target in the kitchen section.  I think it's supposed to be a sugar bowl but I'm using it for Q-tips.  It was under $3.00 and made in the USA by Anchor Hocking.
The white ceramic tray also came from the kitchen section at Target.
The orchid is not real, but is a pretty good fake!
I bought this vintage reproduction print off of Ebay a few years ago.  It combines two of my very favorite things:  Italy & the color green.
- Paint:  Benjamin Moore; Hillside Green #495
- Cabinets:  Diamond Cabinets; cherry cabinets in "Chocolate" stain
- Toilet:  TOTO
- Floor Tile:  Daltile; Octagon & Dot
- Wall Tile:  Daltile; Semi Gloss, 3" x 6" in white
- Sink:  American Standard
- Faucet:  Delta
- Countertop:  Wilsonart Solid Surface; Juniper Mirage 9085MG
I'm sure I missed something - If you have any questions, please ask!

That tile floor is sooo gorgeous!!! And, I'm pretty sure I'll be stealing your idea to hit up Target's kitchen area for great bathroom pieces :)

Looks great! I love the color, the subway tile, the artwork, it is all a clean & fresh combination. I would not have known the orchid was fake unless you told me. Looks fantastic!!

Alissa, I have true bathroom envy. This is gorgeous and I love it all, especially the green with the dark wood and soft pewterish accessories. My bathroom, well, nevermind. I'll have more chances at bathrooms in my life!

Natasha in Oz said...

Green is my favourite colour and I adore the shade you have used in your bathroom. The tiling is fabulous too. I love it all!

Best wishes,

Green is my favorite color as well. I love the shade you chose, it reminds me of nature.

Very pretty and fresh looking!

barbara@hodge:podge said...

I love the tiles! As for the orchid, as I as reading I thought, how does she get an orchid to grow in a basement bathroom? Not bad for a faux one!

Pretty, pretty :)

Ashley said...

love it! where did you find that orchid? It looks so real and did it come in that glass vase??

lovely bathroom! Feels like a spa almost! Especially like how the sage walls compliment the black and white geometric floor in such an unexpected way!
