Bathroom and Walking Closet Reveal-Part II


Hello sweet friends !

Ok, here is Part II - "Walking Closet and Bathroom." I posted the guest rooms Reveal Part I, last week.

For the ones that didn't visit Part I you can go back and see it; just before this one, where I shared the two bedrooms that belonged to our two daughters, Alexandra and Sofia. Sofia got married and Alex left home to live in Quito, the capital of Ecuador. Now she's also married with a one year old little girl and lives in Spain.

I am loving the bathroom and the walking closet, which again, it's all mine to store my treasures and some of my cloths as well.

It's helped me now that the Christmas season is here, as I've put away some of the regular things, to replace them with my Christmas Holiday décor.

That's said.

Remember, you are all welcomed to come and visit me, It would be a pleasure to have you.

We replaced everything in the bathroom, the only thing we kept from the old look is the marble counter top, as hubby wanted it modern looking and white with gray, so it was perfect.

Our two daughters had ample space for their personal use, they actually had two sinks and two bathroom wall shelves, which I left just one here and took the other to the 'laundry room.' They also had a pale pink big tub for bubble bath, but no more. We went with just a modern, practical shower.

The wall is almost entirely done with mirrors that make it look larger, except for the shower area. It's very neat, practical and economic, believe me.
It is not a small bathroom either.


Little Christmas touches for my Christmas guests; daughter Alexandra and her husband with little Maxima.


The shower is big enough and more to the left... so to make it comfortable for our very tall Sils. One is 6'2 and the other 6'4 !


Even in the back of the door there's a small mirror wall. This made it more economical and very pretty.

The wall and floor ceramic is from Spain, Porcelanosa; which is not cheap, but we helped our pockets go lighter with all the mirrors we had put in front of the sinks and we are loving it !

The "Ceramic container" you see with a hand decorated 'seahorse'...resting in the counter, was made at our former Ceramic Co. and it's to carry an extra "Toilet Paper Roll."


You don't know how I turned, layed down on the floor, stood up in chairs, etc.. to photograph this bathroom full of mirrors in order to not show up reflected in most pics, lol..




Now come into 'my' walking closet. I say my cause...now it is, hehehe

The left side, behind the entrance door of the walking closet, was for the girl's shoes and now I brought to store some of mine.
I have here my long gowns and some elegant pants as well. In the back there are coats and things.

The right side contains my various big bags, the small hand bags and the evening ones are in draws. Some draws also are containing tablecloths and many things for the home, you wouldn't believe !

Alejandro had shelves made for my treasures, where there were racks for the girls cloths before. Thank you Mr. Living for been so thoughtful too. 

There's a small hall that distributes this suit. At your left is the door of the walking closet and a couple of steps further is the bathroom.
You go ahead and there's the bigger bedroom you saw previously in the other post and then to your left is the smaller bedroom.

 
This is the BEFORE pic of how the bathroom was, besides the wall shelves and counter tops were full with girly thingswhen the girls lived here, practically ten years ago.  Didn't want to show you more...uff !

Thank you dear friends for your sweet and kind comments, you always make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.

LOVE,
FABBY

HI Fabby! Oh, my goodness, your bathroom is simply gorgeous! I love the walls covered in the mirrors and the way it's all laid out. Your Christmas touches are so lovely too. That walking closet is marvelous. I love all of the shelves and loved seeing your pretties too. Hope all is well.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Dearest Fabby,
WOW, you must have done the HAPPY DANCE before you got to lie down for taking these photos with the least reflections.
What a turnout, so well thought out, practical and oh so pretty.
You gave me an idea as well, in our Rose Suite we have all Spanish tiles and this brand might work for replacing our messed up (yes, some Mexicans working for our friends' company) used the wrong grout and it is after 3 years already very ugly. Also our water is kind of brownish, rust and staining the off white tiles.
We have to be very careful for doing it right this time. Dredging my feet too for the mess we have to create by taking all wall and floor tiles out first! Such is life. But you lived through weeks of that and yours was a remodeling as well.
You dare to invite guests for staying in your regal looking suite! What a luxury and now you can spread your big totes, handbags and what nots. Also for hanging long gowns is always an issue.
Clever and CONGRATS on such a great turn out.
Hugs,
Mariette

Beautiful! So elegant! I LOVE that closet. One of the benefits of having children leave is having some extra space. I now have clothes in three different rooms!!

Jeanne said...

Hello Fabby, Your bathroom and closet transformation is stunning. I would keep the beautiful marble counter tops as well. It never goes out of style. Your photos are really good and show the wonderful improvements perfectly. I also admire the lovely decorating features. You must be so thrilled the way it all turned out. I am happy for you.
Happy Blue Monday.
xo,
Jeanne

What an incredible space!! Your bathroom is sleek and modern and that closet is to die for!! We opted for a walk-in shower in our bathroom instead of a tub and we love it.

I can certainly see why you are so excited about this part of the reveal....beautiful bathroom and wonderful walk-in closet! No one ever said that a walk-in closet had to be for clothes only. I think it's great that you've made the storage work for all of your needs, from clothes to pretties for the table. Wonderful job!

Hugs,
Carol
