Building Our Dream Home – Pool Bath Reveal

Next up on the room reveals for our dream home is the Pool Bath! This bathroom is right off our pool so we wanted this to be super practical for both kids and adults to use.

Let’s dive deeper into the design of the Pool Bath. All of the info and products are linked below in a handy Pinterest-ready image.

Design Kick-Off

To kick off the design for the pool bathroom, I started with this beautiful wallpaper from Quadrille! I have seen this print before and LOVED it, but didn’t have the right space or project to use it for until now. The big and bold print of the wallpaper is the real showstopper in this bathroom as all the fixtures need to be practical and long lasting, so it was great to use this wallpaper! I kept all the other selections simple to support this wonderful wallpaper.


I wanted to keep the plumbing for the pool bath similar to the other areas of the house but slightly simpler in design. I chose the Bancroft series from Kohler so all the plumbing fixtures are still classic yet modern at the same time. The fixtures are practical for this bathroom while still being in keeping with the rest of the house’s plumbing too. I chose polished nickel as the finish for the plumbing in this bathroom (and most others).

For the shower, I went with the single handle temperature pressure shower head.

Vanity Unit

For the vanity unit I designed a smaller version of the furniture style vanities we have elsewhere in the house. It’s a simple two-door cabinet with furniture style detailing and it makes the room feel like it’s more than just a pool bath! I added simple polished nickel knobs to the doors too.

The Finishes

The finishes for the pool bath are similar to other areas of the house, although the plumbing is polished nickel and we have opted for cheaper finishes here.

I chose a simple white subway tile for the shower walls to keep the costs down. And the shower floor is a white thassos tile, with a contrasting dark blue main floor tile from The Tile Shop.

The paint color in this bathroom is my signature Evans Greige, the same paint color as elsewhere in the house. And to finish the beautiful vanity unit I chose a simple white Quartz countertop.


The accessories here are understated compared to other areas of the house but considering the size of this bathroom, I love the choices made here!

Keeping with the same blue and white theme, the vase was a must-have to tie everything together.

I wanted to add an accent color to this room to give it its own personality. I found these pink Turkish towels and I instantly fell in love! They add a contrast to the space while still making it feel polished and well put together. I then added some pink roses to the vase to bring the whole scheme together.

I love this round mirror that has a slightly more coastal theme. The raw rattan detailing brings warmth to the space and I love how playful it makes the bathroom.

The main lighting for the pool bath is a lovely flush mount fixture from Hudson Valley Lighting called Rye! It pulls the other nickel finishes together to make the space feel cohesive, and this has then been supplemented with a recessed downlight.

And lastly, I picked up the toilet paper holder from Kohler too in the same range as the plumbing!

I am so pleased with how the bathroom turned out! It’s fun and interesting and still works with the rest of the house.

I gathered up all of the info, complete with links, and put them in a Pinterest real board below. Be sure to “Pin It” for future reference.
