first look at my unfinished master bathroom

how about a little tour of my master bathroom? i haven't posted many pictures of this room ...well, because it's not DONE. yet. we already have a few projects scheduled for completion, and are hoping to have the room finished soon. 

this is the view looking into the master bathroom from the master bedroom:

the two doors on either side of the vanity are his/her closets. the two small doors straight ahead belong to a linen closet, and the door to the left is the american standard toilet.

overall, the bathroom is a dream! the bathroom functions wonderfully for us. 

i love the freestanding tub, walnut vanity, carrara marble herringbone floors, patterned marble/slate shower floors and large window.

some might criticize the fact that we only have a single sink in the vanity, but we have had 2 sinks in many previous homes, and found that we actually prefer more counter space over 2 sinks. 

on the TO DO list:
install shower walls and doors
*yah. its been a little DRAFTY taking showers in here for the last 18+ months!

install vanity mirror
this mirror will be a two way mirror, to allow the tv to be seen though the glass.
i can't wait to have a bigger mirror!! not only will it reflect more light into the room from the window, but it will also make getting ready a TAD bit easier.

install mirrors on linen closet doors
we knew we wanted these doors to be covered with mirrors when we built the house, so we specified smooth slab doors here. 

add crown moulding

paint walls

install light fixture (over the tub)
add some softness with a window treatment
hang art
hang towel hooks/rings

hang THIS wallpaper in the toilet closet
(cole & son lily wallpaper in black/bronze)
i fell in love the very first time i saw this wallpaper! its been sitting in my drawer for over a year now, and i am dying to get it hung! i will most likely hire someone to hang it for me...apparently, it needs to have liner paper hung first....not something i am excited about possibly messing up.

the shower doors and mirrors will go in this weekend, and the vanity mirror, sometime next week. i am just starting to consider fabric for the windows...right now, i am leaning towards a simple gray linen panel. depending on how quickly i can make decisions, this room should be pretty close to DONE in the next 4-5 weeks!

the design board i created for the bath:
