Before & After: A Mid-Century Bed & Bath

Deep orange tones bring a Mid-Century vibe to this petite bathroom and bedroom that were in dire need of some attention.

We had already completed an extensive project in the rest of the home, which featured beautiful Mid-Century pieces and lots of color. The primary bedroom and bathroom just weren’t in step with the rest of the house!

The bathroom originally had an itty bitty shower, a peeling ceiling, and an inefficient vanity. We removed the hard-to-reach built-in shelves to expand the shower space. Instead of an opaque curtain, we opened up the room further by installing a large glass door.

We replaced the old shell sink with a more contemporary rectangular sink that offered more counter space on each side. Lindsey chose to float the vanity instead of taking it to the floor. This visually creates a lighter look that opens up the room.

Our clients love color, so they were thrilled by the deep orange/coral tile Lindsey selected for the shower. Tile layout matters, too – this unique layout turns a regular rectangular tile into art!

We kept the floor tile pattern small on purpose. Large-scale tiles would have overwhelmed the small space. We also ran the floor tile right into the shower to further open up the space and eliminate a “divide” vetween the floor and shower tiles.

We chose a light quartz counter with some beige accents. This home has zero gray in it, so we kept the counters warmer to compliment the home’s overall palette.

We used the same quartz for the shower curb. Keeping materials to a minimum is key in small spaces, especially when you add wallpaper!

Check out the niche’s tile in the photo below – it’s perfectly lined up! We also stuck with glass for the shelf to break up the tile pattern as little as possible.

The bedroom was also looking a bit grim. It had very little going on before, other than a bed and some leftover college furniture. The “after” is much more in line with our clients’ personalities! It’s bright, happy, and bold with a mix of patterns. We also said an enthusiastic goodbye to that burgundy carpet – yikes!

Lindsey designed the custom headboard to bring the yellow and orange from the bathroom’s wallpaper into the adjacent bedroom. She also added a touch of blue – because why not?

The nightstands are Mid-Century pieces that were refinished to bring back their original beauty.

The custom draperies again have a mix of blue, yellow, and orange that coordinates with the headboard’s colors.

In lieu of a dresser, we added custom built-in storage to the small room. Pro tip: Extend the storage to the ceiling wherever possible!

Here are some more of the pattern details – we love our patterns here at Lindsey Putzier Design Studio! (Yes, that is a matching bed pillow that Lindsey actually found from a completely different vendor than the drapes – it’s kismet!)
