A few months ago we had our ensuite renovated! We are SO happy with how it came together. I thought I would share a few photos of the process, who doesn’t love a good before and after? I loved having the opportunity to design this space into a functional and cute little bathroom. I’m no Sarah Sherman Samuel (maybe in my next life?) but I am super stoked on how it turned out. Special thanks to the incredible Wesgrove Homes team for their hard work, expertise and professionalism.
When we bought our condo in 2014, this shower was out of commission due to a crack in the floor pan, so we’ve never been able to use it. But, it did make one hell-of-a spray tan “booth”. There’s evidence on the floor of the shower in these photos #ratchetAF #sueme

The bathroom is pretty tiny, so we wanted it to feel as bright and open as possible. We chose a basic white vanity, 4″ x 8″ subway tile, white penny tile and white paint. We added in some wood, brass and black elements and a few plants for greenery. We used a medium grey shade called “Cobblestone” by Mapei for the grout on both the shower tile and floor tile. Originally, we thought we might want black grout but we are thankful to have gone for the more subtle, timeless choice. I wasn’t sure how the black grout would look with the penny tile (too much grout to tile ratio, yafeelme?). The floating shelves were custom made by Jason and his team, Wesgrove Homes. We are so glad we added the shelving, as I think it really makes the room.
The paint color is just a basic “no pigment white” from any paint store. It’s our favourite because it is a true white and doesn’t pull grey/yellow/green/blue etc.
Doing a reno with River being so young was interesting, but Wesgrove Homes was incredibly contentious and made the process super easy.
