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.

It can be chic, yet casual; rustic, yet refined. Rattan furniture is as popular as ever and a favorite of mine – my childhood room had a pair of rattan bookshelves that are still with me today. Timeless rattan furnishings add an unexpected accent to a room. I love to mix rattan pieces with traditional – it’s a great way to bring texture and pattern to space.

Here are a few current rattan accents I’m loving…

Round-up :: Kids Room Ideas

Full of life, love and laughter – I’m a fan of children’s spaces. Decorating for your little one doesn’t have to be overly cutesy or themed. Infusing some grown-up touches through furnishings, artwork or textiles can help add a sophistication to the space that helps it stand the test of time. Today I’ve round-up some fresh kids room ideas that feature design elements that both kiddos and parents will love.
star wars bedroom // boys' bedroom

This sweet bedroom by Joni of Lay Baby Lay showcases the boy’s love of Star Wars (fun artwork!). I love the modern touches and that the theme is subtle.
kids bedroom + book wall #kids

The book wall is this gender neutral kids’ bedroom is darling – it would also work behind a desk in a home office! The room designed by Jillian Scott was spotted in Rue Magazine.

Bunk beds are a great option for smaller kids’ bedrooms. I love this navy bunks with privacy curtains & brass rails in a Manhattan apartment decorated by Elena Frampton and seen in Architectural Digest. So sharp!

Don’t you love this fun painterly wallpaper?! It’s just darling as an accent in this baby’s nursery by Sarah for A Beautiful Mess.

I’m also loving the neutral herringbone wallpaper featured in this sweet girl’s nursery room by Studio McGee. The timeless plaid upholstered bench adds a fun play on pattern too.

This Southwestern chic bunk room features a fun hanging chair, tiered bunks and super fun cactus wall detail (it was a diy project!). Spotted also on A Beautiful Mess.
