Inspiration :: Girls Bathroom Design

I’ve been taking a break from tackling any new renovation projects in our home, but we do have a couple more bathrooms that need attention. One of the bathrooms on the list is that of my oldest daughter who is now a teenager – yes, time keeps flying by!

I want the space to reflect the traditional architecture of the house, while having a transitional feel. Here are some bathrooms that I’ve been drawn to… although, I haven’t passed any design ideas by my tough client 😉

In this bathroom by Brooke Wagner I’m loving the make-up vanity and large hex flooring.

The basket weave tile flooring and subtle blue vanity had me taking a second look at this bathroom by Studio McGee.

The pops of blue in the hex tile floor and mirror attracted me to this bathroom designed by Brooke Wagner.

Spotted on Design Sponge, this bathroom features a black and white hexagon floor and subway pattern tiled walls – a timeless look.

Wallpaper is also something I’m considering for my daughter’s bathroom. I love this pattern in Emily Henderson’s kiddos’ jack & jill bathroom – however it may be a little too juvenile.

And how sweet is the bathroom by Amie Corley? Loving the tiny marble herringbone pattern floor, classic subway tiled walls and the floral wallpaper. Now to see what my client likes 🙂

Kitchen Trend :: Waterfall Countertop

neolith marble waterfall countertop // kitchen island

It’s a kitchen trend I’ve seen grow over the past few years. A waterfall countertop is a a great solution to finish off the ends of cabinets while adding a modern, decorative touch. The clean-lined look is something I was drawn to and included in my own kitchen renovation. Originally the second island was suppose to seat two to three and have storage on the opposite side. As the kitchen process evolved, I revised the plan to seat four by removing the under counter cabinetry. The island basically evolved into a parsons style table when I added the waterfall countertop in ultra durable marble patterned neolith. It’s such a heavy piece that it’s actually a movable table, not a set island. The finished piece is pictured above and posted on Instagram a few weeks back.

I’m so happy with the finished look, I wanted to share with you some of my inspiration…

In this kitchen designed by Ashley Garrison, Ashley Garrison Interiors Inc. features a center island wrapped in carrara marble – the perfect stone to contrast the warm driftwood cabinetry.

Isn’t this kitchen island stunning? The marble pattern on the turned counter really steals the show in this kitchen.

Here’s another beautiful kitchen (designed by Leslie Cotter Interiors) featuring a marble waterfall countertop used to cover the island. The marble edge is less chunky than the previous example.

This sleek kitchen island design by Liz Hand Woods balances warm wood tones with limestone waterfall countertops. So chic!

This large, square island in kitchen designed by Kelly Hinchman of Studio H Design Group allows for some serious storage. The waterfall edge countertop in all white (perhaps quartz) adds to the sleek, modern feel.

Concrete is another material that looks great wrapped around cabinets. I love it here paired with white cabinets and floors.
