I hope Jill White Designs’ work on this beautiful Little Rock home on Stonewall was a blessing in disguise. The project’s start was admittedly less than ideal: The homeowners experienced a water leak in their master bedroom and bathroom. All of my client’s clothes were ruined. It was not a happy time, as shared on my Instagram.
Fast-forward to better days! The same family hired me to do a refresh less than a year prior to this restorative work, so I was familiar with their aesthetic and their personalities, which is always a plus. The water leak was due to a pipe that burst during winter. Water poured in from everywhere imaginable.
We ripped everything out of the bathroom and started completely over. The initial layout was disjointed, and there was a definite lack of space in the master bath. We combated this by knocking out a bathroom wall. From there, we extended the bathroom by pulling it forward and rebuilding two walls.
The clients wanted to keep the his-and-hers concept, so I made sure they each had a sink and a closet. However, we were able to add a modern bathtub and a larger shower, as shown in the before and afters below:
The client enjoys a mix of modern and vintage styles and finishes. She wanted to keep several family heirlooms, which work perfectly with the palette we chose for the space. I love how the light cabinet and black floor transition. The flooring is a mosaic marble I had rush delivered from Italy. True story. The contemporary vanity and vintage mirror also create an interesting contrast.
We also collaborated with Soos Stained Glass to create the spectacular window, which is seen below from my drawn concept to the completed product:
I loved every part of working on this project with these fantastic clients….well, except the flooding part. We certainly made lemonade out of their lemons though, right?
I leave you with a few more images. That shower! That flooring! That CLOSET! Enjoy!
