Welcome to the second post of the master suite refresh of my friends. On Friday we revealed the master bedroom and today we have a lovely large master bath for you. Let’s get into it.
Their house is a new build and one of the BEST things about it is that the contractor made some good choices and didn’t try to ‘design’ it too much. No weird finishes or bad backsplashes. Here is what it looked like before:
Heck, he didn’t even put hardware on the cabinetry because he assumed that the person who would buy this house would likely want to choose either some high end (like we did) or something different than himself. So again, it was a blank slate with super tasteful choices (well, we switched out the pendants …. and in a perfect world we would upgrade the sconces and mirrors but they are SO not bad, just could be a little more more special).
I knew that this was the perfect ‘set’ bathroom for a refresh, and so we did …
This refresh was really just about shopping and styling – seeing what was current in Target, in the Project62 brand and styling it all together. I chose from samples available but trust me that in the store and online there is a really large selection to choose from now if you want a different color palette or style.
We started with the same color palette as the bedroom as it’s a shared space, but added more hits of black and more of a terra-cotta tone with the lighter pinks (p.s. I’m loving this blush and blue debate happening in the comments – stay tuned for ONE more blush and blue combo and I SWEAR my friends choose it, not me!!).
Once we had the color palette chosen we basically bought ANYTHING bathroom related that could work in here and styled it all out. The rose gold vanity collection is simple and lovely and somehow worked PERFECTLY in here. I kept saying to myself over and over ‘man, we are selling this set’. It was the perfect environment for them.
That tray is mine and vintage, and by the way I don’t recommend wood trays on marble anyway (a different wood tray in our master left a big brown mark the shape of the tray on the marble). But for a little while it’s fine and it was a great scale (note to the world – we need more small but not tiny trays out there – think bedside table size).
The whole Project62 collection is modern, clean, but not boring and feels really fresh.
And yes, we propped it with ONLY blush, rose, mauve and terracotta products because the dad of the house (Nick Thune) LOVES these warm pink tones all over his face, body and bathroom (we returned virtually all of it after the shoot). For real people with real products my suggestion is to 1. purge a lot, 2. keep pretty towels and hand towels on open shelves, but 3. enclose virtually everything else – whether they are in bins or drawers. Real life product simply isn’t photogenic so we curated it a bit. 🙂
Over in the tub area, we gave it some much-needed attention and love.
The leaning ladder houses a new shower curtain (that fring-ey textile) but their bathroom had glass shower doors (not shown) but I wanted to feature that curtain because they are GREAT. Obviously, the bathroom doesn’t need two floor mats (the one on the floor and the one on the bath) but since my job is to show you guys my favorite product, I took some liberties.
We styled it out with a side table, that ladder that I love (Birdie has it in her room) and that beautiful painting (yes, that painting is from Target, it comes framed and is $70 – CRAZY – I have it in my living room as well).
I had dreams of a big round rose gold mirror back there, but this $70 solution that fit with our story sure did make us happy and looks gorgeous. We swapped the table to this side for that shot to to create a pretty composition. We can do things like this when we are styling for a shoot, rather than real life (for real life we put it back by the window).
There you have it – a styled out bathroom refresh with 100% product from Target’s modern Project62 line. Thanks to my friends for letting us use their house in exchange for LOTS of pretty product from our favorite store.

Meanwhile I’m going to check ‘towel model’ off my bucket list. xx
