We have no plan to redo our bathroom any time soon, but now that the rest of our main floor is looking all fancy with the new floors and white walls, I’m just itching to inject a little style into our master bathroom. And by inject a little style what I really mean is pretty much change everything.
Let me show you it’s current circa 2006 state:
When you walk in from our bedroom, there are two sinks on the right, a toilet room in that little area next to the wall, a tub and shower opposite and then our closet at the back.
Here’s the thing about our bathroom: it works. It’s clean. It functions just fine. But it’s just so blah.
So just like we’ve done with the rest of our house, I just want to inject a little personality into an otherwise builder-basic room.
Again, let me reiterate that there are no real plans to do the room, but in my imagination where my creativity just needs to do it’s thing, this is what I’m thinking:
I love the idea of making the vanity area more of a focal point, of tiling the walls all the way up with classic subway tile, adding tile to the floors and replacing the tub with a freestanding version. The colors, of course, would stay in the white, black, warm brown, mixed metals, neutral family – light and bright, clean and classic.
And just for fun, here’s a more detailed design board:
Can’t you just see the vision?!!!
A girl can dream.

It’s a message I keep getting over and over and over: Be who you were created to be. Stop comparing yourself to others. Walk confidently in the gifts God has given you. Shine your light. Twirl. At If:gathering a few weeks ago (it was so, so amazing. Truly one of the best weekends of friendship, […]
Audrey turned 5 last week. Every parent throughout history has asked the same question when their baby turns a year older: how did that go so fast? And you can add me into that group. She is our baby and the fact that she just turned five only reiterates the fact that she’s no longer […]
I posted this photo on instagram late last week: I have a new dinner solution that I can’t wait to share with you! – but that’s not what got most attention in the photo. Instead, there were lots of questions about the ipad mounted in the background. I have to admit that this was 100% […]
I made these pom pom garlands around Christmas and wasn’t going to do a how-to because I thought they were just for christmas season. And then I couldn’t bear to take them down with all of the other holiday decorations, so I just casually draped them on the kitchen chalkboard. And you know what? I […]
I don’t know why I titled this post like that. It just sounded fun. There are a handful of questions I get frequently and I thought I’d jot down all the answers here. Perhaps you’ve wondered about one of these things and now you’ll know the details. Here you go … Where is the living […]
One of the first diy improvements we did to our home when we moved in was painting the front door. Both sides. It’s a little unconventional, but it gives architectural detail, a pop of color and dimension to a feature that could otherwise just blend in. We actually loved the results so much, we painted […]
My baby is turning 5. What?! She’s just the best. She brings a girly flair to our family with her constant songs and dancing, she makes us all laugh and maaaybe has her daddy wrapped around her finger. Possibly her mommy and brothers, too. The kids and I talk about our favorites all the time […]

My phone is basically an extension of my arm. I carry it with me everywhere and while I’m not so good at answering phone calls, I do love it for everything else: texting, checking the weather, setting an alarm, taking photos, reading email, posting to instagram, checking out at starbucks … you get the idea. […]

I got my haircut last night. My previous haircut was seven months ago. They suggest getting your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks. You could say I was a bit behind. Last week I had a colonoscopy. It was so pleasant. That is a total lie. None of it was pleasant. Except maybe the glorious sleeping […]
My Seattle Seahawks are playing in the Superbowl this weekend. Two years in a row! It’s so unbelievable and well-deserved and this city has never been so electric and excited for our team. I’ve been a Seahawk fan for all of my life and can’t wait for Sunday’s game. Call me crazy, but I can’t […]
