Contractor: The Whisker Group

Before Conditions

  • Clawfoot tub, boring floor tile and a window behind the tub.

  • Compact primary bathroom lacked storage and personality.

  • Window in the shower zone was a hazard.

Client Objectives

  • Select finishes that fit the classic craftsman style bungalow aesthetic of the home.

  • Replace window with a waterproof alternative as double shower curtains to block the window darken the room.

  • Switch to a standard tub/ shower that’s easier to navigate than the tall clawfoot.

Design Solutions

  • Classic palette of tans and blue tiles paired with oil rubbed bronze fixtures.

  • Custom glass block window in shower.

  • New tub/ shower is easier to navigate and glass doors allow light into the room.

  • Solved a variety of plumbing and structural issues hiding behind the walls.

The Details That Make It Work

  • New shelving over the toilet provides space for guests’ toiletries and a rotating art display.

  • The finishes blend seamlessly with the style of the adjacent rooms.

About Colleen


I live in Minneapolis with my landscape architect/urban designer husband, my daughter who believes she’s my design assistant and sous chef, a cuddly tuxedo cat, a feisty Siamese, and a menagerie of turkeys and other wild animals who visit our backyard for the free food. When I’m not designing, you’ll often find me cooking up a Paleo feast, practicing embarrassing TikTok routines with my daughter, or hiding in a corner with my nose in a book.
