When renovating a bathroom, designer Victoria Lesser recommends timeless tile, fixture and furniture selections “Make a bathroom white and then, if you want color, bring in green towels or bring in red towels,” she adds.

Storage space includes a 3 1/2-foot by 9 1/2-foot walk-in closet and a freestanding shelf, custom crafted by Matt Blashaw and the Bath Crashers crew.

A 500-pound cast-iron tub was hoisted via crane to the second floor and positioned above the kitchen. Pine-clad beams in the kitchen support the weight of this luxury two-person soaking bath; a hot water heater stowed in an adjacent closet provides an unlimited hot water supply.

A 5-foot storage ledge, crafted from an old piano top, caps his-and-hers, farmhouse-style pedestal sinks. Matt Blashaw and Matt Muenster custom crafted the recessed medicine cabinets that incorporate vintage cabinet doors and glass knobs with new glass fronts and wood cabinets.

A bar of homemade glycerin soap adds personality, color and a subtle pear fragrance.

With the addition of new glass, an old window finds new purpose. Brass double hooks offer a spot to hang towels or bathrobes.

Continuing the bathroom’s classic design story, subway tile capped with a ribbon of green glass extends into the walk-in shower. The shower’s pitched floor is clad in glass and ceramic mosaic tile.

A rain shower, hand shower and body spray contribute to a spa-like shower experience.

A shower luxury item chosen by online voters, the body spray features a pivoting nozzle that provides a luxurious hydrotherapy experience.

A private water closet facing the shower is carved out of the master bathroom space. An accent wall, clad in glass mosaic tile, and heart-pine flooring elevate the interior design.

In less than two hours and with the help of DIY Network’s own custom glass mosaic tile kit, Matt Blashaw and Matt Muenster clad the room’s eye-popping accent wall.

A matted sepia-tone print is one of many thoughtful touches that make Blog Cabin feel like a home. “While it is not an actual photo, I picked it, imagining the pair to be the couple who used to live at Blog Cabin," says designer Victoria Lesser.

A 2x4 tin tile, reclaimed from an upstate New York inn, is stripped of rust with oven cleaner and applied to a newly installed beadboard ceiling with glue and nails. A fresh coat of paint and decorative molding frames the ceiling’s finishing touch.
