Amateur Bath category, then head to our awards page to Vote. Above: The Bear Creek Bovidae Bath in Austin, Texas, was chosen by Remodelista editor Julie Carlson, who said: “The owners created a luxe-looking space using a mix of nothing-fancy materials and fixtures: a pair of double Alape sinks with Chicago wall-mounted faucets stripped down to the original brass, penny round tiles, and hardware store ceramic sconces. The vintage rug is a nice touch too.” Photograph by Andrea Calo. Above: Angie Wendricks of Markleville, Indiana, submitted this Master Bathroom in a 728-Square-Foot Tiny House, which was chosen by guest judge Sheila Bridges: “Love this fresh mix of old and new,” she says. “They sandblasted and glazed their way to rustic beauty.” Photograph by Angie Wendricks. Above: This Hudson Valley Farmhouse Bathroom Remodel was chosen by Sheila Bridges, who said: “I like the warmth of this traditional country bathroom—particularly the brass details. I love that they kept the hardwood floors and used furniture pieces with art in the bathroom, making it personal.” Above: Jennifer Ball submitted her 60s Ranch Bath Remodel in Nashville, Tennessee, about which Sheila Bridges said: “This bathroom looked dated and uninviting until the owners changed it into a clean, minimalist, and modern space. I like the combination of materials—wood, marble, and the brass and stainless sconces in particular.” Above: Samantha and Hershel Yatovitz submitted their project Brighter Days—A Bathroom Overhaul in Portland, Oregon, which was chosen by Julie Carlson: “The homeowners had a goal of ‘mixing old and new,’ which they accomplished by retaining the tub, which they refinished, and the ornate console (they updated the look by replacing the sink and the faucet). Bonus points for the mod touches, including the framed Milton Glaser print above the tub and the Sori Yanagi for Vitra Elephant Stool.”
