Kyle’s Bathroom Reveal

Kyle Martino's masculine bathroom in his newly renovated Connecticut home

*Many thanks to Polycor for providing this gorgeous Saint Henry black granite countertop and to Rings End for providing the beautiful vanity hardware and paint. As always, the opinions expressed below are entirely my own.

When I revealed my Master Bath a few week ago, I shared that a huge surprise of this historic home when we bought it was the fact that there were two separate Master Bathrooms– one with a bath (mine) and one with a shower (Kyle’s).  Both are en suite to the bedroom.  While we went with an ultra feminine design for my bath, I am equally in love with the really playful, masculine design story of Kyle’s bathroom.  I’m excited to share it with you today!

I will say that a HUGE upside to this bathroom Reno was the fact that the previous owners had recently put in this gorgeous shower.  We didn’t want to change a thing about it, and so we were able to focus our attention and money on revamping the rest of the space.  Redoing the vanity and adding some wallpaper, paint, and new lighting, were all it took to bring this bathroom to a new level.

My absolutely favorite part of the entire bathroom is the absolutely gorgeous stone on the vanity.  We worked with Polycor on this bathroom as well, and selected the Saint Henry Black Granite, with an antiqued finish.  I have never seen anything quite like it, and even though the space it occupies is so small, it really packs a punch because it’s so unusual.  This is one of the things I love about renovating:  you don’t have to redo huge surfaces to make such a big change.

    How do you feel about your husband having a naked woman to look at that isn’t you? That would be a huge no go in our household!

      Can’t help but chuckle at this comment. In the video, she states that it is a piece of artwork that they purchased together, which quite clearly suggests that they both like it. Also, it’s art and a beautiful piece, at that. Gotta live a little!

    Seems like a silly detail but I love that there are so many hooks. It’s so annoying to be in a hotel or wherever and not have enough.

    I do love that vanity too.

    This bathroom is gorgeous! As with the other rooms, per usual! Your design tastes are 👌🏼.

    My question about this room is how did the installation of the taps and lights on the mirror work?! Was that process difficult? Was it something you thought of on your own? The taps really stood out to me so I am curious! Thanks Eva!

    • Thanks! So the lights and faucets in the mirror was something that our contractor was able to do without much trouble, which surprised me since it sounded complicated! Prudence wanted to balance out the awkward proportions of the sink and mirror, and luckily it worked out well!
