Master Bathroom – It’s All in the Details

Love these master bathroom decor ideas! The carrara marble floor and the light fixture are gorgeous

We all spend a lot of time in our bathrooms – primping, preening and prancing in front of the mirror – so while we’re there, why not surround ourselves with things we love.

I’d rather stare at a blank space then fill up my home with things that I only marginally like.

So when I saw this handmade and perfectly distressed Lifeguard Station sign from Barn Owl Primitives, I knew my quest for the perfect piece to hang above my tub had finally come to an end.

Love this Lifeguard Station sign in the bathroom and all of her coastal accessories

It’s such a statement piece at 24″ around and it’s thick, heavy wood.

It looks amazing over my wire shelf filled with some of my favorite finds including this manzanita branch from HomeGoods

I love all of these beachy accessories - the shells, coral and blue mason jars

It’s just one of the little details that make my bathroom a favorite place to relax.

Whether it’s an antique thrift store find that makes the perfect little side table,

Love the freestanding bathtub, the marble floor in this vintage inspired master bathroom

a heavenly scented candle,

Cute mason jar candle - smells heavenly

a basket from HomeGoods overflowing with fluffy towels.

Love this storage idea - a big basket filled with bath towels

or freshly picked flowers from the garden or coral from a favorite beach.

These fuscia hydrangeas are such an incredible color!

Now that I’ve surrounded myself with things I love, it’s time for a long bubble bath.

Love the details in this master bathroom - the carrara marble floors and the free standing bathtub

The only thing missing is a glass of wine …

and a rubber duckie.



So hop over to Barn Owl Primitives – they have tons of hand painted art including my favorite Beach & Lake SignsVintage Street Signs, tons of inspiring Motivational Art and lots of special occasion signs.

  1. Gorgeous, where do I start. Your bathroom is huge and gorgeous. The tub is pretty, pretty, pretty. The addition of the ladder adds so much charm. I am telling you I love it


  2. Wow Kelly this is a lovely bath… and the tub is perfection and looks simply ideal for soaking and sipping wine!!! I also have the Barn Owl Primitives Lifeguard Station sign, waiting to go into my Master Bath. Well, that is once the current reno is completed with Ship lap wall, marble herringbone floor, convert tub to a shower, replace the sink & commode… Whew…I have a way to go before I can hang that sign…In the meantime, I shall covet your beautify bath…sans the rubber ducky, but with a glass of wine in hand!!!

  3. Have just gotta love that life guard sign. Also hankering after that wire basket/shelf/hanger. Where did you get that baby? Wonder why I have such a durned thing for wire items, duh. Awesome bathroom gal. We’d like to turn our garden tub into a shower and the shower into a linen closet. Never get to soak in tub, takes too much water, eeekk. Would have to put backer board on two walls to make into shower.
    Enjoy that glass of wine with your soak. Happy weekend

  4. Kelly, the rooms in your home are so inviting, I can always imagine myself in them! I love the soothing whites and grays with pops of interesting color and texture. Ahhhh! Can you tell us the source of the ceiling fixture in this bathroom?

  5. Kelly, I searched your site for bathroomS since I am gutting my bathroom in my 1947 colonial and wanted to stick with a design true to the home. So, can you please tell me about your basketweave floor tile. Is it marble, and is that easy to deal with? I am looking at that design and black and white styles like hexagon. All thoughts welcome. Thank you! Jeanne

    1. Hi Jeanne! I’m a bad blogger and have never done a full bathroom post! I love my marble master bath tile and after 10 years it still looks great! I used a light gray grout and love it. You can see more of my master here: – I also love my classic black and white hex tile in my guest bathroom and you can see it here: If I were to do it again, I would probably go with gray grout instead of white but since we don’t use this bathroom every day, white still looks great!
