Before and After: A Victorian Bath Transformed

June 22, 2012

UK-based Jonathan King chronicles his remodeling adventures in his blog, 47 Park Avenue. We especially like what he and his partner Michael have done with their ensuite bath/bedroom (click through to see the “ghastly” before photos).

Above: Jonathan and his partner, Michael, stripped the wallpaper, painted the walls Great White and the floors in Pitch Black, both from Farrow & Ball. The shower consists of three pieces of white quartz cut to size and mounted onto the walls and one piece of black quartz cut to size with grooves drilled into it for drainage.
