The First Red House Mood Board: The Bathroom!

Today we’re breaking down all of the components that will bring a warm, moody vibe to the main bathroom at our ongoing Red House project!

As we work to slowly reimagine each individual space at the Red House, the word that keeps popping up in conversation is ‘sexy‘. We want the house to have a moodier, warmer, more modern vibe than our neighboring Tree House’s cool, laid-back cottage vibe.

The Red House was likely built in the early 1900’s but underwent a near-total remodel in 1957 or so. Due to that timeline, much of the structure’s style leans decidedly mid-century, which is a style that’s not fully within our comfort zone. But! We’re leaning into the bones of the home and allowing the structure to guide our design plan to a degree that makes sense. That said, we’re really working to bring in mid-century inspired details without going full ‘atomic ranch’ with swoopy lines and and sputik lights.

Our red house primary bathroom mood board featuring warm, moody tones and brass // via yellow brick home.

1. fran light fixture, $405 | 2. custom vanity | 3. countertop, marble stone remnant | 4. wall tile | 5. floor tile | 6. orange linen curtain, $90 | 7. delta saylor faucet, $280 | 8. colette sconce, $500 | 9. gaia vanity mirror, $98 | 10. andy stool, $530 | 11. delta trinsic handheld shower, $210 | 12. fox + feathers painting, $98 | 13. delta saylor shower head set, $180 | 14. delta saylor toilet lever, $64 | 15. kohler reach toilet, $910 | 16. faux magnolia plant, $40 | 17. utility stool, $199 | 18. kohler bellwether tub, $980

We think the deep red and burnt orange hues will play beautifully with the brassy champagne bronze Delta fixtures. The stunning black terrazzo floor tile from The Tile Shop will nod to MCM design without being too on the nose. Meanwhile, the soft pinks and beiges of the petal wall tile will bring a delicate touch to the space.

The first wave of demo and construction started last week and this bathroom (in addition to carving out the half bath from it) will be one of the first spaces we tackle! We fully expect the hues of this room to spill over into the rest of the home and act as a jumping-off point for the rest of our designs. We can’t wait to get started!

    Oh my gosh, I am so excited to watch this one come along!! I haven’t ever been this excited about a internet project as I am about the Red House!! I love that you guys do small (er- I thought they were normal size houses? Everyone seems to want too much house these days). We’ve got a mid century ranch too, and I’m so excited to see how yours turns out!!ReplyCancel

    • Kim5.15.23 - 9:20 AM

      Yes, small is definitely relative. And thank you, Amanda!ReplyCancel

  • Sarah5.15.23 - 10:41 AM

    Warm tones like this are never what I gravitate towards first but you guys always make them look so good that I cannot wait to see how this turns out. And the lines of that tub are extremely sexy!ReplyCancel

    Damn this is so good! Those 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 circles together in particular are *chef’s kiss*. ReplyCancel

    • Kim5.15.23 - 1:16 PM

      They may be little circles on the board, but they’re going to be the stars of the space!ReplyCancel

    If anyone can honor the bones of this house while also giving it a clean, modern (and sexy LOL) update, it’s you two! I’m so excited to follow along with this.ReplyCancel

    Ah so excited to see everything Red House. It’s so fun to feel free to explore a theme that you might not want to do for a primary residence. You all do things stylish and smart so I have no doubts this is going to turn out great. Love the softer mauve-y pink + warm orange (+ green from the window view!). ReplyCancel

  • Lia5.15.23 - 7:25 PM

    Curious what tub spout and tub trim you are going with – can’t find those when I look at the sailor line on Delta’s website.  Thanks.ReplyCancel

    • Kim5.15.23 - 8:26 PM

      It’s considered their ‘modern’ trim, or sometimes it’s called Trinsic.ReplyCancel

  • Julie5.15.23 - 7:58 PM

    Delta champagne bronze is the best color tone, we use it for everything! Now to finally buy that toilet lever to match…ReplyCancel

    Kim! I’d love to hear your thoughts on cast iron vs acrylic tub. Most of the cast iron tubs are ugly but it seems you found a nice one. Thoughts? ReplyCancel

    • Scott8.21.23 - 9:48 AM

      Hi Meg! We love the feel of a cast-iron tub underfoot. There’s a certain solid, immovable vibe that acrylic doesn’t usually offer. We think the added cost is totally worth it!ReplyCancel
