Powder Room Makeover – Before and After 06.17.15

comment & share

I’m happy to have one of the 4 areas I’ve been wanting to design in my house completed! The powder room is done and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I shared my inspiration and design plans for the room here. As I mentioned before, I wanted it to have a dark and elegant look with classic lines.  As much as I would have loved to put up that wall paper and have that custom sink, it was way out of my budget for the room. I knew I could get the same feel and look by taking elements that define the space and reintroducing them in a way that’s within my budget. That meant dark walls and gold accents along with classic lines. I love the transformation! 

As I mentioned before, the powder room is extremely small! So it was a challenge finding a pedestal sink that fit in the space with the lines I had in mind. The Kohler Memoires sink was perfect though! I love its elegant look and classic lines. I also came across The Kohler Purist faucet and instantly fell in love! This was my main splurge and I think it’s totally worth it. I love the finish and the lines and everything else about this faucet! I got it in the vibrant modern brushed gold finish. 

The toilet was also from the Memoirs series by Kohler. I stuck with the gold finish for the toilet paper holder as well as the towel ring. Love the quality + price on these! I got them both in the antique finish.

To a certain extent, I love mixing different design styles. Since everything in the bathroom boasted the classic traditional look, I wanted the art to be abstract and modern. I found this print on etsy and had it printed at my local printer.

Mirror Options for Powder Room 05.06.15

comment & share

The powder room is coming along nicely except that I’m having such a hard time finding a mirror that fits in the space. As you can see form this post, we have a small powder room. And the space between the light fixture and the sink is not very high. I’ve been shopping around and came across so many gorgeous mirrors. Some of them work in our powder room and others are too big or too small. But I wanted to share them all with you in case you’re in the market for a gold trim or glass trim mirror!

 

Click the thumbnails under the picture to see the source. I think buy the end of next week our powder room will be completed. I can’t wait to share it with you! I’ll share the design board next week as well.

Projects Around the House 05.03.15

comment & share

A few years ago, we built this home from the ground up, so we’ve been living in a blank canvas, waiting for the right time to decorate and personalize the space. I’ve always loved our house from the outside. It has great structure and character.  The inside though, as you can see from the pictures below, is plain boring! Well, I feel like we’ve had enough of waiting and would like to get some rooms finished.

I’ve officially entered nesting mode…Big time! I’m designing and updating four rooms within the next few months.  I’ll be working on the the following:

Nursery for baby girl (due date August 12). This room was Luke’s nursery and will be updated for a baby girl over the next couple months. If you’d like to read about Luke’s nursery, you can find the post here!

Luke’s big boy room. I’ve already posted the initial design board for the room. I’ll be posting an updated one since I’m veering away from some design ideas on the board. All we have in there right now is a bed.

The family room which is currently as boring and dull as it gets will get a major face lift. This room will probably be last on the list and will take much longer to update.  I have so much planned for this room. As you can see, it has good bones! Lots of windows, high ceilings, very spacious. But it’s just boring now.

And finally, the powder room which I’m almost done with and will share on the blog soon!

Other rooms that will probably be finished next year: master bedroom, dinning room, minor kitchen update, and guest bedroom.

I’ll share with you all regular updates as I go through designing and furnishing each room. I can’t wait to have it all done! Keep checking back from inspiration and updates!
