We wanted to design a guest bathroom that was light and airy with a bit of a coastal French vibes. It’s important to have a space that makes your guests feel welcome and at-home. Here are all the details!
It’s been a while since we’ve had guests over to stay – I know we aren’t the only ones! As the world starts to open up a bit Charles and I are so looking forward to hosting get togethers with our favourite people. To help make our guest’s experience a little nicer, we put a bit of love into the space along with the guest bedroom to brighten up their stay!
I wish I took pictures of this bathroom before it was renovated. The tub was mustard yellow and very worn, the walls were orange and the vanity was a dark wood. Let’s just say I wasn’t sad when we ripped it all out. Here are the details bit by bit for what (and why) we chose for the space.
Our flooring is a white hexagon tile from Olympia Tile that is so soft on the feet. It is a great pattern that is timeless, and unlike the upstairs bathroom, we put grey grout in this room (not white – don’t do that by the way). I like the colour Alabaster by Mapei if you’re looking for a nice grey grout colour.
The vanity was custom designed by Norelco cabinets (highly recommend) and is painted Simply White by Benjamin Moore. It is the same colour we chose for the walls; however it comes out a slightly warmer tone in the cabinets which I adore. We went with a simple shaker style with hardware (Norwich knob) from Emtek in polished chrome to match the rest of the finishings. The quartz counter top is from Cosentino and is the Statuario which has a beautiful subtle marble look to it. The faucet is from Kohler.
We were really restricted on space, so went with a walk-in shower with a glass door. We took the same flooring tile and extended it into the shower which worked well, and ended up using the counter top material as a ledge on the shower entry which really classed it up.
Guest Bathroom Details
As always, the details are what make a space. Here are the little things that we integrated that made a difference:
- The beautiful window covering is from Q Design Centre – I adore the blue stripe!
- The two little framed pieces of French art are from Minted – I love anything French and these pieces remind me so much of my trips to Paris. The two towel hooks below it are from Emtek.
- The hotelier rack is from Kohler and is in polished chrome – perfect for all those towels!
- Our bathroom rug with the heart is by Indaba through Jillian’s store – it is basically perfect.
- The handmade soap is from Dreamy Whites and the little white tray was a score through Homesense.
Home Design Inspiration
My home has been a true labour of love (so lucky I married a talented builder!) that we have consistently worked on since we moved in (and probably will work on indefinitely haha).

Beautiful, Tori! And very similar to what I want for the bathrooms we are renovating. Where did you find the mirror? Also, does the shower floor also have grey grout? And are the shower walls a white subway tile with white grout? Thank you for sharing!
Curious to know why you said to NOT use white grout with the white hex on the floor?
Tori Wesszer says
It gets so dirty and is impossible to clean!
Thanks for the article. Great information.
Beautiful guest bath! Would also love to know where your mirror is from?
Tori Wesszer says
Thank you Emily it is from Homesense!
I just love this bathroom, Tori! It is providing major inspiration for me as we remodel our own bathrooms. Could you please tell me: is the vanity floating and if so, approximately how far above the ground is it mounted? Also do you know the name of the white grout that you used with the white subway tile? Thank you so much!
Beautiful, Tori! Could you please tell me where you found your light fixtures?
