Hanover Avenue Interviews Shannon Kaye: 1 Bathroom, 4 Ways- Spring Clean


We can’t believe this is the last of four: we’ve finally reached Shannon’s final design for our Lowe’s Master Bathroom! For this fourth bathroom version, Shannon breathed modern life into a timeless space with vibrant colors, playful accents and wow-worthy details that simply blew us away in a “spring clean” aesthetic.

Here, Shannon gives a glimpse into her design mind through her own words:

The Mood

“Neutral materials and finishes in bathrooms seem to beg for gorgeous color on the walls and accessories to bring your personal style to the space. Use colors that make you look good and feel good every morning, and don’t be afraid to use unexpected objects in surprising ways.

To add definition, color and dramatic impact to this room, I started with clean white paint for the walls, something like Kelly-Moore Cloud White and then bright Bursting Lemon yellow on the ceiling and Light Out, a velvety rich black for the trim and doors.”

The Accessories

“I then filled the room with quirky personal things like a collection of floral paintings from all different eras, a colorful Turkish Kilim rug, a shaggy brass and sheepskin stool, and handmade vessels to keep things organized on the counter. I also like to put Moroccan tea glasses in the windowsill with small candles for sparkly colorful detail morning and night.”

BONUS: Sarah Dickinson, the beloved blogger from Sarah’s Book Shelves, has picked the books in this room to completely fit the design and mood! We love reading as we lounge in a tub, so check out the cool books that Sarah chose for the room based on the design! It is a trip to see how her mind works, and she always picks the best reads – so brilliant!
