I haven’t been writing as frequently as I would like this past month because we are about to embark on a bathroom remodeling adventure! Specifically, we will be adding a bathroom to our second floor and modifying the floor plan up there. Those of you who have remodeled your own homes know that the planning involved in this type of undertaking will consume any free time you might otherwise have. I have been immersed in the world of bathroom design, an activity that I would normally enjoy very much. After all, I am infatuated with anything that has anything to do with design. However, we are introduced to the element of stress when a strict timeline is implemented, especially when it feels like you have no time to spare anyway. So this whole process feels very rushed, to say the least. Nevertheless, I’m taking a short break to share with you, one of the bathrooms that already exists in our home. Mainly because I am currently incapable of thinking about anything besides bathrooms. Also, posting pictures of a bathroom that is already perfect in my eyes seems so much easier than trying to create a whole new one right now.
I present to you, our master bathroom. This bathroom was a huge selling point for us when we bought our house because our home was built in the early 1900s, a time in which bathrooms were built mainly for function. Large bathrooms were rare and there wasn’t much emphasis on aesthetic appeal. Fortunately for us, this bathroom had a huge facelift and an upgrade before we moved in!
My favorite element of our bathroom is of course, the thousands of tiny blue tiles that blanket the walls. It immediately captures your attention when you walk through the door and creates kind-of an oasis ambiance. The mosaic porcelain floor tiles are heated, which helps too. The natural light that flows effortlessly through the windows, combined with its large square footage, make this room a very inviting place to be. It also came with an extra big spa tub, which is obviously a big hit with Jackson and Finley.
I really love this ceiling light pendant. I’m not sure exactly where it’s from, but Rejuvenation has similar styles.
I’m really into using wall space for organizational purposes. I like to hang hooks, pails, metal baskets and other storage tools for our toiletries. An old ceramic and silver baking dish holds perfume and cologne, and I use my Opalescent glass tumblers from Anthropologie for my make-up brushes.
This bathroom came with lots of storage space, which is a good thing because the only other bathroom we (currently) have is very small. But I thought I would use this little cubby area to display my jewelry. The wire rack is a flea market find and was meant to hold mail, but I think it’s much prettier used this way.
Well, that’s about all the time I have for this post. Here’s to hoping our new bathroom will be just as wonderful. Stay tuned for updates on this project!
