The Girls Bathroom

I promised myself I would do a blog post this weekend, and I'm only a day late, which I'm pretty happy about.  ;-)  My entire blog needs updating (ugh), but maybe I'll get around it one of these days.  I've said it before, but I miss blogging and always have intentions to get back to it more consistently!

Meanwhile, I'm so happy to be on here again, sharing a tour of the girls bathroom, which is one of my favorite rooms in the house.  Something about this little room is so sweet. 


When our house was built, we had most of the walls painted white (although I've since painted a couple rooms), but the girls and I somehow convinced Justus to have their bathroom painted pink.  It had to very pale and subtle though (his words), which I was on complete agreement with.  :-)  I love, love, love this pale pink... so perfect for a girl's room.  The color is Sherwin Williams White Dogwood.  I couldn't find this color in the store in their paint swatches, so had to go off images online.  Normally I would never do this (I tend to leave the store with 50 paint swatches to agonize over- ha), but it felt like the right color and it definitely was.

The floors are tiled with white and black hexagon tiles, which I also love.  It's a timeless tile that also feels fun!  The vanity is custom, painted Sherwin Williams Alabaster, with the same knobs and pulls I used in the rest of the house.

 The faucets and all hardware are from the Pfister Tisbury line. This is from the same beautiful and durable line in the rest of our baths, and I still love its timeless design, especially the faucet cross handles. 


 I made the silhouettes of the girls one day on pink cardstock and framed them... a really quick, fun project.  Google a tutorial sometime!  

It's always fun incorporating decor that comes with memories.  These are all the shells we've collected from our yearly Florida vacations.  

 The house plans originally had a shower stall in this bathroom, but we changed the plans to include a bathtub.  We were then left with a small cubby to the right of the tub, which would have been perfect for the toilet, but was just a tad small to meet code measurements (bummer!).  Eventually I'd like to do some creative built in storage here, but for now it hides dirty laundry and wet towels.  ;-)  (By the way, I love using robe hooks for towels... they dry faster and look pretty, even when wet.  We hung them a little lower, so the girls could reach them and easily hang up their towels themselves.)

I think part of the reason I love this room so much is all the light flooding in from these three small windows (the view doesn't hurt either!).  

 When I first started decorating this room, I could not find one girl's shower curtain that I liked.  They all felt either too bright (think hot pink) or too plain (think white eyelet).  My mom came to the rescue once again and sewed this curtain with some fabric I picked out. 

 I absolutely love it... I love how she used three different fabrics that all coordinate to make the absolute sweetest shower curtain.  We've had this shower curtain two years now, and I don't think I'll ever get tired of it!  

 Thanks for touring this space with us.  The fact that the girls love their shared bathroom as much as I do is pretty great, too.  ;-)  Let me know if you have any questions, but I'll include sources below!

  1. This is an incredibly sweet bathroom. I love all the thoughtful details; the shower curtain, the shells, the silhouettes. I hope we get to see more rooms soon as I find so much inspiration in your decorating style- everything look so fresh and simple, yet beautiful and graceful.

    1. Thank you so much, Dana! You are so sweet... I will definitely try to do more room tours soon!

  2. Awhhh!! I love it. All the personal touches...and you're mom is amazing with all of her sewing abilities. I'm impressed.

    Thanks for sharing!!!

  3. So glad you haven't given up blogging! I've missed your posts!

    1. Aw, thanks, Johanne! You are so thoughtful to still read! :-)

  4. That is definitely a sweet bathroom. Love it! I love the tiles on the floor especially. When I saw that extra little space, the first thing I thought of was a dressing table for future makeup application. There could still be shelves above for extra storage. A cute seat with a ruffled, floor-length skirt to match/coordinate with the shower curtain would just add to the sweet factor. Thanks so much for sharing!

    1. I love the idea of the dressing table!! That is so sweet and I had not thought of that. Thanks for sharing with me!

  5. Your decorating style is sophisticated in it's simplicity and lovliness.
    We enjoy seeing these glimpses.
    Thank you so much!

  6. I love the shower curtain print. So sweet. ~Miranda


I always look forward to reading your comments... thank you for taking the time to leave one!
