Hi Friends! Thanks for stopping by! Today I’m sharing a first look at the master bathroom in our California home. Yep, after three years, I finally took some photos of our bathroom! We designed this bathroom when we built our home, six years ago, and I think the style really stands the test of time. We decided on a very classic white palette with warm wood floors and charcoal gray accents. If you’re thinking of remodeling a bathroom or looking for gray and white master bathroom design ideas, you’ve come to the right place!
The inspiration for this bathroom design came from a photo I saw on Pinterest of a clean white bathroom with zinc metal cabinets. I loved the contrast of charcoal gray against white and knew I wanted the same look in our master bath. Luckily, my husband also loved the look!
I worked with a custom cabinet maker to design the twin vanities. The goal was to have the pieces look like freestanding furniture, rather than built-in cabinets. I used a simple upholstered bench, found at HomeGoods to fill in the space between the cabinets. I love the soft fabric element this adds to the bathroom.
We added dental molding along the top edge and an additional molding detail below the first set of drawers. We also included a tongue and groove detail on the sides of each vanity to incorporate an elegant farmhouse look. Plank drawers with simple hardware and an additional molding detail on the center cabinet door added just enough interest without being too busy.
I used a custom painter to finish the cabinets in a warm charcoal gray tone with the look of the zinc cabinets that were my inspiration. The wood-paneled walls created a perfect frame for the inset beveled mirror.
The countertops were fabricated of Carrera marble with a custom-designed backsplash.
Opposite the vanity on the far side of the bathroom, we designed an oversized steam shower.
Finished in floor to ceiling marble with a mosaic design on the back wall and a bench with a marble slab, the shower continued the elegant but warm look that we wanted to achieve.
The exposed plumbing on the shower fixture adds a casual and rustic look to the shower.
Our master bathroom is a long rectangular shape, so to accommodate the freestanding bathtub, we designed an alcove.
It is just wide and deep enough to fit the tub, giving it a cozy look and feel.
On the opposite wall, we added a tall, zinc towel cabinet and a freestanding vanity table with a metal top.
I love the idea of adding furniture pieces to a bathroom, rather than having all built-in pieces.
Just beyond the bathroom is the master closet. I recently reorganized my closet and the new and improved version is so much better!

I hope this gives you a few ideas about how to design a gray and white master bathroom that is classic and warm with a touch of farmhouse elegance.
