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 🙂

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.

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.

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.

Design Reveal :: Black and White Powder Room

One of the spaces that was renovated during our last construction project was the powder room. It sits toward the from of the house and is in parallel with the staircase – making the room long and narrow. It has been decorated several times since 1940 and the last being in the late 60s. The blue toilet and sink coordinated with the wallpaper which featured cherubs. Gold wall sconces with crystals flanked a mirror that was removed before we bought the home. Shear drapery that was full of dust covered a large window. All of it needed to go.

The space was completely gutted and re-plumbed. From head to toe the room was transformed into a light and airy space. Check it out now…

:: AFTER ::

The wallpaper – Pajarita (black) by Laundry Studio for Hygge & West features whimsical birds and was my first design selection for the bathroom. The delicate, yet energetic pattern was inspired by the various murals of birds seen throughout Mexico City. I also love that birds symbolize freedom. Black concrete hexagon tiles and a steel mirror were paired with the wallpaper. To flank the mirror, I selected understated, yet classic wall sconces. A top-down Roman shade in white match-stick was selected to bring in the light and provide privacy. The black and white ju ju hat hanging above the toilet is just plain fun and a nod to the birds. The blue sink was the perfect scale for the room, so I had it re-painted in white to match the new toilet by Toto. The faucet hardware needed to be replaced, but was able to reuse the original toilet paper and towel rack hardware.

Favorite Posts of 2016

As I welcome 2017 with open arms, I also reflect back on this past year. As you may know, we moved into a 1940s home that desperately needed a face-lift, so for the last year and a half we have been in the process of various renovation projects. In fact much of the last year we were in the mist of several projects which included the kitchen & great room, three bathrooms, and a laundry room. Each project brought challenges and joy along the way – some which I have already shared like the process of designing our master bathroom & closet and guest bathroom. Once I catch my breathe and get some photo taken, I’m planning on revealing some of the other projects we undertook in the upcoming months.

Wishing you a very happy, healthy 2017!

Here’s a look back at some of my favorite posts of 2016:
