Junkin Reno: Master Bath

The master bath is actually starting to come together really quickly! We now have a large bathroom, with two windows - yay - and a large walk-in closet. It's amazing to see the progress.

I wanted to share our new layout:

Just a couple pictures of the before space:
Looking into master bath from master bedroom.
This was a little bonus room/study that was on the front of the house and connected the master bath to the upstairs landing. It was a bog room of unused space. So we got rid of it and added it to the master bath and walk-in closet. 
Now for some updates. But first, a quick in-progress pic of the space.

Thanks for your input on the master bath vanity, we decided on option #2 Bella. The countertops are carrara marble and we selected the same faucets in the picture.
Selecting a tub may have been the hardest decision. We went with a a traditional claw foot tub with chrome feet and fixtures. I really liked the look of the white feet, but the tub we found didn't have that option - so chrome it was. I think either way, it's going to be so beautiful! We originally were planning on a high back tub, but changed our mind. I liked the symmetry of a balanced claw foot vs. the high back. Plus, bathing kiddos - let's be practical - a high back would have been impossible.

This is an unclose picture of the tile for our shower. It's subway tile in size, but marble and has gray throughout. It also has some neat imperfections to it, which actually has ended up tying the darker wood tile floors in very nicely.
Paint colors, vanity cabinet, shower tile and flooring. 

We picked out faucets for the tub, shower, and sinks. The shower faucet may be may favorite, it's so fun.
Flooring was really hard to pick, and ultimately we went with something totally different than what I was planning. Our contractor suggested the look, and it's really cool. We stopped by yesterday and they were laying the floor tiles. Check it out:
