As we finish up construction on my house this month, I’m excited to share the last of our sneak peeks over the next few weeks! Our guest bathroom sits near our living room and will be the bathroom that our family uses most during the daytime. It does have a shower in there (which isn’t standard for a downstairs guest bath), but we wanted to have an extra shower for any guests visiting, since all the other full bathrooms sit within one of the bedrooms. Take a look below…

Green is for sure a color that goes throughout the house in various shades. So for this bathroom, I worked with Cleo Murnane at Project M+ to create this sultry and lush space. The dark green tile really makes such a statement here and gives this room a rich and chic vibe that I am loving so much! We pulled in other shades of green throughout including small green accents in the floor and green in the wall paint and wallpaper.

I wanted to tie in the beautiful green tile with a graphic and statement wallpaper that you would see as soon as you walk in. Which wallpaper do you like best? A, B, or C? I love them all for different reasons!

  1. I’m so excited for you to get in to your new home, it’s been so much fun following along. I love option B for the wallpaper!

  2. They are all so beautiful, but I like C best. I love when you share your home and I can’t wait to see it all finished with your talented touch put on everything!

  3. I like A the best! I like C as well but I think A is more relaxing & bright since the green tile is darker. Regardless, I cannot wait to see what you choose & the finished product! We are getting ready to build our own house this spring so thanks for all of the inspiration!

  4. Whatever you choose will be beautiful but I like A best when I consider the tile and the amazing flooring together!

  5. C is the best wallpaper for sure…but it doesn’t really work with the floor tile (or backsplash in the renderings to a lesser extent). If the floor tile was a bit less busy, C would work, but I think you are tied to only A with the current floor. The wallpaper and shower tile could have even stood out on their own with a more plain backsplash/floor. Don’t get me wrong, still will look great though, just some food for thought!

  6. I think A really gives you a more cohesive look, but I also like the idea of C giving you more of an artist edge.

  7. So exciting! Loving the room 🙂
    C – it’s more timeless than the other two because it’s closer to brush strokes on a painting.

  8. My favorite is C BUT, A actually ties in with the flooring nicely & I think will be more timeless. Loving all the details of your new house !

  9. Love A! Love the movement in it which I think is a nice contrast to the stacked fireclay! So excited to see your entire house be finished!

  10. It’s too bad the SSSxlg green marble wallpaper isn’t in production anymore. I like A to accentuate the green.

  11. Definitely A! It goes with lush and sultry.
    It’s elegant and refined. The others feel too busy! I’m sure you’ll have more colours and prints throughout your home xx

  12. In my humble opinion I think you should go for a clean paint color because you have so many different materials and colors already going on that it would be more soothing to do a solid paint color. Less is more

  13. They are all gorgeous! I like A the best though because it helps really bring out the beautiful tile without overpowering it.

  14. How many can I pick? ? It is a toss between A and C. A is more my safe side and it is soothing. C is the wild side of me that takes a risk. Both are so pretty you can’t go wrong. xo
