Bathroom Design: Custom Home Barrie

Madison Taylor, Custom Homes, Barrie

Madison Taylor recently completed a custom waterfront home where each bathroom has a unique design scheme.

New Home Bathroom

This bathroom features mirror all the way to the ceiling which gives the room a hotel feel. The mirror mounted sconces are from Restoration Hardware and the faucet is the Riobel Eiffel. These fixtures have a modern chrome finish with simple shapes that are classic and elegant. The countertop is limestone from The Gallery, A Madison Taylor Collection and the river rock backsplash is from Salitllo Tile.

Custom Millwork

The navy millwork is all custom, by Absolute Cabinets, and features a side cabinet with floating shelves for extra storage space.

Toilet paper storage

The shower has a river rock feature back wall and tub skirt with modern chrome shower fixtures, also from Riobel and simple white tile for the side walls. In the back of the knee wall, beside the toilet, there is another custom element of storage with a built in shelf area. This bathroom incorporates nature inspired finishes with modern fixtures to create a timeless and practical design.

Bathroom Revamp

Madison Taylor, Interior Design, Barrie

We are currently almost complete a bathroom revamp in the Horseshoe area. By changing out the old plumbing fixtures, and adding new vanity hardware and countertops this bathroom will be given a fresh update. We used the Moen Waterhill fixture line in Oil Rubbed Bronze to keep with the traditional style of the house. The countertop is from The Gallery, A Madison Taylor Collection, Mystic White marble with a Kohler Archer undermount sink.

From Concept to Completion: Master Bedroom Design, Newmarket

Madison Taylor Design, Interior Design, Barrie

This master bedroom design was inspired by hotel luxury and incorporates a grey, cream and steel blue colour palette. The wall colour is Knitting Needles, Sherwin Williams and a Crown wallpaper from the Kensington book is on the feature wall behind the bed. The grey headboard, re-upholstered settee and steel blue drapery was all custom made by B & D upholstery.

Design scheme

The bedding is put together from different places to create a unique custom set that pulls the whole room together.  The white duvet cover is simple and clean. The layered pillows incorporate steel grey sheets from Home Sense that tie in the drapery and resprayed dressers. The linen shams and striped coverlet from Elte incorporate the greys and creams from the headboard and walls. The navy velvet (from Elte) adds texture and contrast and a white metallic pillow from Home Sense completes the set.


The ceiling fan has a modern stainless finish with geometric details from Lamps Plus. The mirrored side tables from Union Lighting add sparkle and the white Home Sense lamps with metallic shades compliment the bedding.

Master Bedroom, almost complete

The master bedroom is almost complete and just needs a few finishing touches. Pictures of the finished room coming soon on our website.


Interior Design Trend: Carpet Tile

Carpet tiles are not just for commercial spaces anymore.

Madison Taylor Design has been incorporating carpet tiles into several current residential projects in Barrie and Bolton. Area rugs can have a bold impact on the space as well as provide comfort and warmth. A budget friendly way to get the same benefits is to layout carpet tiles to form an area rug. We love these ones from

New Bathroom Project – Barrie

Madison Taylor Design is very excited about this new bathroom design scheme.┬áThe floor tile will be a beautiful 12×36 vein cut travertine called black sea from Stone Tile Inc. On the shower walls will be a matte white rectangular ceramic to draw attention to the back shower wall, which will feature a metalic mosaic called ceramic di treviso, also from Stone Tile Inc. We plan to incorporate modern plumbing fixtures such as the Riobel Zendo and neutral walls with Modern Gray from Sherwin Williams. The custom vanity will be dark oak with a horizontal grain and have a Santa Margherita countertop: Istria from The Gallery, A Madison Taylor Collection. Progress pictures to come!

Basement Bar Lighting – Interior design

Madison Taylor Design, based in Barrie, recently completed a custom basement bar. The cabinetry is a dark wood and adjacent to the bar is a textured stacked stone wall. To make this area unique, we used a glass ball pendant from Glass Lighting Gallery, Barrie. The airy glass pendant adds sparkle and elegance to an otherwise masculin space. It also reflects beautifully on the low ceiling.
