Bathroom Details

Two years ago we visited Charleston, South Carolina, and stayed in a cute room with a small but well-ordered bathroom.

This glass shower at our suite in Charleston, SC, had the kind of glass finish we prefer.

This bathroom gave us some ideas for our own new bathrooms especially the one in the conservatory.

I was trying to use one of these cabinets over the toilet but the smaller one, which fit best, has a crack in the glass.

While I was debating if we should hang a small cabinet over the toilet I remembered the top photo where there is a wall-hung towel bar complete with fluffy towels.

I've purchased 2 18-inch towel bars to hang on the front of the vanity after it is fully trimmed.

Since the only other place in the conservatory bathroom to hang large bath towels would be on the front of the vanity I decided we need bars in both places.

The Latitude Series by Gatco goes with the style of our Ikea faucet and Moen Arris showerhead.

In addition to the 2 towels bars I already bought for the front of the vanity I’ll need to purchase a 24-inch model for over the toilet.

The shower door handle is called the "counterpoint" style.

I also ordered a coordinating handle for the shower door which I think could double as a towel hook.

The conservatory bathroom is connected to the conservatory by a 36-inch door.

I love sitting on the loveseat in the conservatory and gazing into the new bathroom which is almost finished.

Do you coordinate or deliberately vary your decorative details? Or a combination of both?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

    1. It’s fun to make up our own personal nomenclature. My mother (who was very elegant) used to call her style “Contemporary Contemptible” which I like to think I’ve inherited. Jo
