Hello friends! It’s been a while! This Summer has been a little nuts. It’s my first Summer with a toddler and there are just so many activities for her to do and things to explore and let’s be honest – I feel like I have a maximum of 2.5 hours during the day (aka nap time) to get anything accomplished. I’m working on figuring out a system to manage our days a little bit better, but I also love just letting her be a kid and have as much fun as possible – especially in the Summer. If any fellow stay-at-home Mamas have found a perfect balance there, I’m all ears!
Anyways, if you remember I have been slowly working my way through a full home tour as we continue to put the finishing touches on each space in our house. Next up is our little main floor bathroom!
We have 3.5 bathrooms in the house, but this is the only one on the main level, so it gets used the most often by guests. I wanted to carry the modern/industrial/farmhouse vibe from the rest of the house into this bathroom, but also give it a personality of it’s own.
I stuck with a neutral gray, black, and white color palette and incorporated both masculine and feminine and a mixture of old chippy goodness with new, fresh, and clean.
I handmade the “wash brush floss flush” sign, and added some dried lavender (my favorite!) and a few fun accessories which gave it a cute apothecary feel.
There isn’t a whole lot of counter space in here, so I added this cute little natural seagrass basket to the top of the toilet to hold essentials like cotton, wash cloths, room spray, etc. And I am kind of obsessed with this Hot Baths sign and hooks from World Market. Can you tell I kinda like that place? 😉
I found this gorgeous old window at a local antique store and I immediately knew it would be perfect for the big blank wall above the towel bar. I loved that the shade of grey matched the bath mat and hand towel perfectly, and that under the chippy paint you can see a little bit of blue paint peeking out. It is the perfect tiny little nod to the little pops of blue throughout the rest of the house and I really love the way it ties everything together.
…And one more because this one made me giggle as I was going through and editing photos. Where’s Waldo? Dodging mirrors in photos isn’t as easy as it looks, y’all!
There are still a few projects I would love to eventually tackle in here including building a natural wood frame for the mirror and switching out the builder grade light fixtures, but there are quite a few house projects in line ahead of those and not enough hours in the day!
This bathroom ended up being one of the least expensive rooms in the entire house to decorate – We’re talking under $150 total with sales and coupons, and I just adore the end result. It’s amazing what a few cute accessories and statement pieces can do to add interest and character to an otherwise pretty boring builder bathroom.
I have included a source list of my budget friendly finds below. If you have any questions I would love to hear from you in the comments here, or you can find me on Instagram @belleamourblog. Have a wonderful day and happy decorating!
