If you have 50 acres of Texas ranch, it’s likely to be hosting many relatives and friends. This was undoubtedly the situation for the property owner in the rural town of Burton, just an hour and a half away from Houston.
For frequent guest visits and extended stays with their plans, the couple decided to construct two houses on the property and hired a designer, Aurora Fain, who had been able to design rooms in their primary residence. They wished to create an open, modern farmhouse style with clean lines in the bathroom of a cottage with just one bedroom. Fain utilized a white-on-white color scheme that highlights light and makes the narrow, long 120-square-foot bathroom appear prominent. Details in black add excitement, while wood-look luxury flooring hints at warmth. A glass-enclosed shower room with a freestanding tub gives guests a spa-like feeling.
The white vanity (Simply White by Benjamin Moore) with white walls and ceilings with beige tones (Alabaster from Sherwin Williams) and other white finishes give the bathroom 120 square feet of style and a sense of more room. “I wanted the vanity to be crisp and the same crisp white as the subway tile we used for the shower,” Fain adds. “This provides contrast for the soft alabaster walls.”
Flooring made of wood softens up the white hue. “This floor looks just like wood but performs like a tile,” Fain claims. “It brings all the organic warmth that wood provides, but it’s not slippery and it’s also affordable and extremely durable.”

A fixed-pane window in the wet space allows light and frames an oak tree canopy in a field. “The sill height for that window is 6 feet, so it provides lots of privacy,” Fain states. “Because it’s facing east, you also get lots of sunlight.”
