Giving an Outdated Bathroom a Stunning (and Timeless) Makeover

In terms of dream home needs, wants and gotta haves, a gorgeous bathroom to retreat to for a nice soak is high on the list of priorities. And Jacquelyn Clark would agree. Having recently purchased a victorian abode and finding the bathroom situation to be more cave like than bright and serene, she decided a renovation was the first order of business. And the result is timeless marble goodness with a side of crazy cute pup. Get all the inspiration you need for a dream bathroom captured by Snapful Photography.
My boyfriend, Justin, and I purchased our first home in Toronto this summer. An old Victorian from 1898 with incredible character and charm coming out the wazoo. While we immediately fell in love with the high ceilings, 10" baseboards, original staircase and the like, the only (tiny) bathroom was an entirely different story.
 Unfortunately it had been semi-recently redone, but the execution, craftmanship, and 50 shades of brown tile selection left very little to be desired. The vanity was teeny tiny, the medicine cabinet dug straight into the room cutting off minimal sight lines, the window had been shrunken down so the entire space felt like a badly designed cave.
We knew we wanted to change everything before we moved in, and got straight to work the minute we had the keys in hand. We gutted the entire thing, enlarged the window, laid the most stunning marble tile, refinished an antique clawfoot tub from 1915 to infuse that character we fell in love with. Needless to say, we're thrilled with the results. And what it lacks in size, it makes up tenfold in style. For more about the design process, head on over to my blog, Lark & Linen
