Tour Tobi’s Bath Spaces

Take a sneak peek at the bathrooms in Tobi's house

By Tobi Fairley

We’re talking all about bathrooms this month in my Transformation column. You saw a small peek at my master bath on the pages of the July/August issue of Traditional Home, so I thought I’d give you a little behind-the-scenes tour of the other bathrooms in my house. You’ll be able to see even more in my full-house reveal, coming in the December/January issue of Traditional Home. But let’s start in my daughter’s room.

My preteen had very definite ideas about the color palette and the patterns she liked for her room, and she settled on shades of cobalt and aqua. Like her mom, she doesn’t shy away from color. She’s very close to her teen years and really has a great eye for style! 

Her bedroom showcases a fabulous cobalt-and-aqua Quadrille fabric, so her adjoining bathroom also has the aqua color that she loves, specifically in this fabulous Thibaut wallpaper and matching custom shower curtain. It’s sassy, and I love how it looks with her frosted, frameless glass bathroom door and all the white finishes, including the hexagon floor tile from Daltile. 

Since we're hitting the age of makeup and nail polish for my daughter, we needed lots of drawer storage in the vanity cabinet. I also went with a very durable, white countertop made by Dekton. It’s called X-gloss in color Halo. It’s an indoor-outdoor material, able to withstand the weather, so it will surely handle anything my daughter throws at it (maybe literally) without staining or chipping. It’s also antimicrobial, which is key for a clean bathroom. 

When you get a glimpse of my powder room, you might notice I have a thing for hexagons. I love how they complement the architecture of my 1968 Colonial. All the hexagon floors through my home look like they could have always been here. I also had fun with this overscale David Hicks wallpaper pattern that is straight out of the 1960s. 

For the powder room vanity, I once again used a Dekton countertop. I wanted something durable because this bathroom doubles as our pool bathroom. But it needed to be chic and stylish. I chose the Kairos pattern because it looks like a fabulous marble slab, yet it’s very tough. For added detail, I designed a gorgeous curved shape for the backsplash and used wall-mounted fixtures. I love how it looks with the deep blue palette in this room. That rich blue is called “Major Tom” from C2 paints

And just in case you were wondering how I feel about wallpaper, it’s in each one of these bathrooms, including my guest bath (below). It meshes well with Silestone countertops (“Lusso” from their Influencer Series), looking fabulous with a very glamorous fleck of gold metallic. Grounding the space is a Carrara marble floor from Speartek. Kohler makes that stunning cabinet and the fixtures in this room.

The Greek key wallpaper and dash of blush in the painting pair perfect pairing with my blush-hued guest retreat, which you’ll see more of really soon.

There you have it—the other stunning bathrooms in my new home! I can’t wait to show you the entire house in just a few months, so stay tuned!
