Our pink femme guest bedroom is one of my favorite rooms, and the pastel bathroom attached to it is the icing on top of the cake! Here’s a look at how it all came together…
The process of creating the tile combinations in this bathroom was so fun! Cleo and I worked together to come up with the best combo of colors and patterns to create both a playful and chic space that guests would love. The install was super fun to watch as it progressed since it transformed the space instantly.
The mix of pastel glass tiles and the graphic floor tile are a complete dream! In order to get the perfectly imperfect look on the walls, we drew up a paint-by-numbers style reference for each wall so the tile installers had a guide for placement. Even if something looks random, the placement still needed to be intentional. Because once it’s in, it can be costly and more difficult to change later. So make your decisions in the planning phase, and don’t be afraid to be very specific on how you want your tile arranged!
While a guest bathroom doesn’t need a super long vanity, when space allows, I think it’s important to make sure there is enough of a surface on which guests can keep their toiletries. Since they are not living there, guests often have their toiletries out on counters for their stay, and it can be hard when the counters have little or no space. Allowing 12-24″ to the sides of the sink allows for two guests to be able to keep their bath time belongings easily accessible. This vanity is semi-custom using Ikea bases with Reform doors which made it a more affordable option while still being design-focused.
Get Playful with Tile
This bathroom tile is truly one of my favorites in all the rooms we worked for this project! Fireclay had just released this line of glass tiles a few years ago when we were starting to design these spaces, so it was a perfect chance to try a new material and really play with it! I wanted something colorful that would still feel adult-appropriate. It’s perfectly imperfect, and inspired by confetti being tossed into the air.

Hey there! Love how this turned out!
Did you guys use bullnosed pieces for the niche edging? Looks so clean!
We didn’t for the glass tile because there were no bullnosed pieces at that time. So it’s flush and was planned out so that the edges would meet up perfectly for the dimensions of the niche.
Where are the bright hand towels from? Love them so much!
Hi Olivia, All sources are in the caption under the photo. They are bath towels from Castle 🙂
I can’t stop thinking about the shower wall tiles. The design is so amazing! The muted colors, the random pattern, just awesome!!!
Thanks so much Jana! It’s one of my faves, too!
About to renovate my own small bathroom. We were advised against doing the half glass enclosure by three different contractors because it is a small space. It is currently a tub and we want a walk in shower instead. I had my heart set on a half glass wall like yours but with so many professionals advancing against it, I’m reconsidering. Do you find water splashes outside the shower area?
Hi! There is a glass door that encloses it! I wouldn’t do one that doesn’t have a door.
I want this pastel guest bathroom.
I know it’ sooo dreamy!
Hey! Where did you get your shower doors/glasas?
Hi! They were custom made!
Love this – and highly considering Fireclay. Any recs for grout, especially w light tile floors and light tile grout!? I hate cleaning grout …
Hi! We used Laticrete for all our tiles (floor and walls). It’s matte and it’s been great. I would say it depends on where you are tiling and how much it gets walked on. We don’t wear shoes in our house so we haven’t had any major issues with the grout getting dirty. In areas where you do wear shoes, you can choose a darker grout color.
I used your bathrooms as inspiration for my own. I love your designs–I’m not brave enough or talented enough to make such interesting design choices :(.I purchased both the Schaub cabinet handles and the Emtek towel bar. The brass matches perfectly. You did not mention in your sources where you got the wall hook. Could you please share? Thank you so much and thanks for the inspiration!
Thanks Michelle! I know your bathroom will look amazing! The hooks are also from Emtek.
