3. Rustic CharacterDesigner Jenna Sue describes the aesthetic of this guest bathroom as “natural romantic vintage boho.” And with the vintage-buffet-turned vanity, shiplap walls, wood details and tone-on-tone palette, she hit the rustic, ethereal style on the head.
18. Painted shiplap. White shiplap has certainly been having a moment in recent years. And while its popularity isn’t necessarily waning, its look is changing. Painted shiplap, usually in grays or dark blues, is showing up a lot. It’s a great look for bathrooms because it adds texture, dimension and character in a room that can often feel sterile.
After. Gray shiplap nailed right to the drywall and a buffet converted to a vanity kicked off the new modern farmhouse look. Patterned floor tile and accessories fill the room with personality.
8 Tips for Working With an Interior Designer1. Be sure the designer is a good match for your style. No two clients are alike, and good interior designers are nimble enough to hop from urban pied-à-terre to rustic farmhouse to beachside getaway without missing a beat. Most do have a fundamental aesthetic that remains consistent throughout their work. When interviewing designers, ask them about their design approach, and look for parallels between their previous work and the design you want. Above all, look for someone you feel comfortable communicating with.

(See how she converted the vanity.)To save money, she kept the footprint the same, choosing not to move any plumbing or the window. And she did most of the work herself, including ripping out the shower insert and vinyl floor tile. She hired an electrician to add the sconces flanking the mirror and a new ceiling light, and she hired a plumber to install the faucets, tub and shower tile. She laid the cement floor tile herself.
