Designer House Reveal: Happily Ever “After”!

Ladies and gentlemen… it’s finally the moment I’ve been waiting for. It is my pleasure to unveil and share with you the “after” photos from my room at the ASO Designer House XXII, the Patio Bath!

(If you’re just joining us, you might want to catch up on the reveal to this point by checking out the previous posts on the Before photos and the Design process.)

Ready? Here we go!!


Tah dah! There you have it folks. I hope you were inspired by today’s room reveal, and if so, I hope you will pass it on and share with someone who this may not have reached yet.

Thank you once again to my extraordinary photographer, Karen E. Segrave of KES Photo for so beautifully capturing this space so dear to my heart!

I was extremely blessed to be a part of such a wonderful event and work with so many amazing people throughout the entire process.

The key people I need to thank who contributed their time, skills, or resources to this project are as follows: the very talented Monica Smith of Sew Much for turning my textile dreams a reality, Jim Wawak and the Sherwin Williams team on Markham for donating a gallon of paint to transform the walls, Shades of Light for working with me to help the Springfield Sconce make it into the project, Joe Darr with Southern Reprographics for so carefully creating 1st edition prints of my original artwork, Larry Baxter and the All-Brite Electrical team for creating light where there was none, Louis Rodriguez for the impeccable paint job, Alex Juarez for helping make the new counter top possible, Rachel Danforth for being my expert shopping, framing, and  installation assistant, Barry Jones for your mad skills at everything from valance to sink installation and for being there to help every step of the way, Lillian Jones for being my design sounding board, bringing me coffee and for the thorough Scotchgard application to protect the runner, Nancy LeMaster and Jeff LeMaster for your apt timing and  assistance with the drapery installation, Stephen Jones for fixing me up with a taller ladder in a pinch, Hannah Jones for being my assistant and moral support throughout the tear down, Will LeMaster for winning the most supportive husband award and helping with all of the heavy stuff. 🙂 And to the rest of my outstanding  family and friends who showed up in big and small ways to help make my vision come to life and went above and beyond to support me throughout the entire event. I can never repay you for th encouragement you brought to me!

A very special thank you to my music teacher and mentor for 10 years, Helen Vanlandingham, for teaching me everything I know and appreciate about music, and for thinking of me for and believing in me throughout this project.

Thank you to everyone who came to the event in support of Arkansas Symphony Orchestra, I cannot thank you enough! Your support for me and all of the designers, but especially for the ASO was appreciate so very much. Without an audience, there would be no “show” at a show house. You all are the best!!

If you are still interested, please feel free to email me at [email protected] and I can answer any other questions you have about them. Thanks! 😉

  11. Beautiful. Thank you for sharing. I am currently remodeling my bathroom – your design has become my new inspiration image. Nice use of space, wall color, decor…nice!

    • Kathryn LeMaster says:

      I am so glad you were inspired by this project Niki! I appreciate you reading and hope you come back soon. Good luck with your bathroom remodel! 😉

  12. lynn hope norum says:

    Beautiful design! May I ask you where you found the unique white pendant?

  15. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same

    Thanks a lot!

  16. I love the shower curtain covering the shower! I have a similar set up in my new master bath and I’m stealing this idea!!! While I love having a master bath (my first!), an enclosed shower is not very attractive.
    Ps, found you through Centsationalgirl also!

    • Kathryn LeMaster says:

      Hi Jo, So glad you were inspired by my project! Thanks for the feedback and for coming over from Centsational Girl. Hope you will come back again soon! 😉

  17. The makeover is amazing!!!! I’m totally in love! Could you please share the paint color and source for the mirror?

    • Kathryn LeMaster says:

      Hi Tierra! Thanks so much for your kind comment. The wall color is Jubilee by Sherwin Williams, and the mirror is actually an antique from my personal collection. So glad you came by!

  18. WOW! Oh my gosh this looks amazing. I love that you added the greenery above the toilet and the combination of patters in the room. Absolutely stunning!

  19. Amazing stuff, Thanks.

  20. Honestly, this is one of my ALL time favourite bathroom makeovers. I’m looking at it again this morning. You did a phenomenal job!

    • Kathryn LeMaster says:

      Wow, I am so glad to hear that Jackie – thanks for coming back! It is my goal to provide inspiration and ideas, and I am so thrilled to hear that this project has done just that for you. Thank you so much for letting me know! 🙂

  21. The shower curtain is something!! The bathroom is really elegant, great work! I am way too familiar with some products, though, since I work for IKEA. I love the idea of MASKROS dandelion in the bathroom but my first question is – how does paper lamp that is not humid-proof hold up in that space? I can’t stand the generic builder-quality lights in the bathroom but I have never been able to test out the real pendant in moist space. Thank you!

    • Kathryn LeMaster says:

      Hi Valeria! Thanks so much for coming by, and for your excellent question! First of all, you work for IKEA?! You are my new best friend – I LOVE IKEA and one of my only complaints about living in Arkansas is that I have to go to Texas to get my Swedish meatball and shopping fix – haha! Regarding the paper pendent in a bathroom question: I chose it for this specific application because the purpose for this project was for a show house event in which that bathroom would be used as the main powder room/half bath, so the shower was not intended to be used. However the owners chose to keep it after the event, as even when the bath was fully functional the shower was rarely used, as it was located downstairs near the laundry room, so it was normally used as a half bath anyway. Even if the shower was used from time to time, I wouldn’t think it would be an issue with the high ceilings and proper bathroom ventilation if used occasionally for short spans of time, but if it were going to be used as a primary bath, I would recommend swapping out for a more moisture resistant fixture! It worked great for the intended purpose though – just another one of my favorite Ikea products! 🙂

  22. I am HIGHLY IMPRESSED,and it takes something REALLY great to impress me.fantastic redecorating job.

  23. This is really fascinating, You’re an excessively skilled blogger.

    Hello, I love this bathroom makeover! It’s stunning.

    I apologize if this has been answered previously, but I’m wondering where the window valances were from, or if they were made, where is the fabric from? I absolutely love them!

  25. Wow! Are those plants and containers real? Those look like graphically designed. So charming and looks clean.

    Thank you,
    Daniels Design Remodeling (DDR)

    • Kathryn LeMaster says:

      Hey Joe! Thanks for stopping by! The plants a faux, but it’s all real as in actually there, not digitally altered if that makes sense. The galvanized pots and faux plants were from Ikea, actually! Great budget friendly solution for a no-maintenance needed application. 😉

  26. The powder room is really superb and gives elegant look for the bathroom. keep up the good work.
