Modern Nashville Cottage Renovation Owners’ Suite Tour

Doesn’t it always feel like there’s one small area of a project or renovation that takes up the majority of your time and energy? Either because it’s difficult, very important to the end goal, or something just keeps getting in the way of completing it? In this case, the primary bedroom and en suite bathroom were the energy drain for me. From changing plans several times to painted-over popcorn ceilings that wouldn’t budge, to a too-short showerhead, to a flood during a storm, this small area of the house took so much time and energy from me and everyone who worked on it. In the end though, I’m happy with how it all turned out, and I’m a little jealous that the new owners get to have this big freestanding tub to enjoy!

For bathroom before photos, a little throwback to when we had just finished the bathroom, and a cringe-worthy memory of the flooding, click here.

I found this dresser at one of my favorite sources for Mid-Century furniture: Dashwood Vintage. I loved it so much that after we de-staged the Green Hills House, I took it home to replace my husband’s old dresser in our room.

Drumroll please… the sweet and airy en suite bathroom.

This perfectly neutral-with-hints-of-blue-and-pink vintage rug is from Woven Goods Co, another local favorite of mine.
