My future bathroom...

Of all the rooms we're doing, right now what has me most excited is the bathroom.  I really, really, really hate our existing one.  It's cramped, ugly and features some hideously ugly faux Egyptian hieroglyphs.  Right next to our existing hideous bathroom is an equally hideous laundry room.  It has red, painted wood flooring, striped wallpaper that wouldn't be out of place in a gas station bathroom and sponge painted ceiling tiles.  It's also a nice size with a big, gorgeous window.  So, it has possibilities!  The plan is to gut both rooms and turn the bathroom into a powder room and the laundry into a spa bathroom with separate tub and shower.  I haven't yet decided to create a pass-through between both rooms.  Pros... improved functionality.  Cons... less attractive.

I'll post a before photo when I can also post a progress photo.

For now, here's our fixtures and a source guide.  We purchased the toilet and pedestal sink for the powder room five years ago from good ole Canadian Tire (we had a gift certificate). So, no pictures of those items...

Wolsely Kitchen and Bath Classics (Shannon is awesome!)

Rhapsody Soaker Tub (Old Fashioned Faucets)
Space Shower (Bains Neptune)
Catalina Faucets, Slide Bar and Diverter (Price Pfister)
Rainshower Head (Aqua Brass)

Restoration Hardware

Floor Tile Chloe Satin White and Gloss Black Tile (American Olean)
Wall tile in the shower Rittenhouse Square 3x6 Subway Tile in Matte Arctic White (Daltile)

All that's left is to source out are black framed mirrors, a large piece of artwork to hang over the soaker tub and a black and crystal chandelier!  Oh, here's one that's pretty through Elizabeth Embelishments.  I wonder if the store ships to Canada as the price is right, too:
