One of the good things about living in the house during construction is that you can grab a cup of coffee in the morning and check out the previous day's work while still in your pajamas. So here I am checking out the tile shower surround and the cool diamond-shaped border:
I saw so many great examples of 1920’s bathrooms with board and batten wainscoting on HOUZZ, and I wanted to see that same freshness here. We made the upper rail extra high to blend with the side panels on the built-in cupboard:
The bathroom used to have a large crown molding all along the ceiling. Our intent was to add it along the top of the cupboard. Now that we have the clean straight lines of the board and batten, we are thinking that crown might conflict with the style.
