This is the room that sold me the house! It is huge and I love that about it, but sadly it usually does not look like this. The large carpet area (not pictures, where I am standing to take the picture) is surrounded by our closets and usually houses the monstrous mountain of clean clothes. Why is it so easy to wash and dry, but not fold?
Carpet in a bathroom is NEVER a good idea. I would love to have small mosaic white and black tiles instead. However, it is nice to have warm feet in the winter.
Please excuse the turtle in the tub. D was "growing" a plastic turtle. I was never a bath person until I had a large tub.
When our house was built we had very little money for upgrades. I knew white grout was a killer and choosing grout color was FREE so I chose "ice blue" grout instead of white. It really looks gray, but at least it does not look dirty. I totally recommend colored grout!
I have never found the right window treatment for this window, please excuse the exposed hardware. This built in is right next to our shower. The middle drawer we use as a hamper for dirty colors while the bottom drawer is for dirty white clothes. I love utilitarian items in glass jars like these spare soaps.

In a previous post I mentioned my "real" shabby chic duvet, long before Rachel was at Target. I never had spent so much money on bedding until then so I thought it would last me a long, long time. The duvet only lasted a couple of years before shredding in the washer. The above skirt is made from that duvet. I made a matching one for the adjacent niche that houses my tv. Having a tv in the bathroom is a complete luxury. It is the tv I usually use the most while I am listening to music or news while I get ready, watching "The Bachelor" from a hot bath or when I am folding the aforementioned mountain of clean clothes.
Some of the things I'd like to do with this bathroom:
- tile floor (like soon!)
- repaint cabinets (all of our cabinets in our house were painted poorly)
- replace cabinet hardware with a more vintage look
- panel the ceiling
- beadboard the tub surround
- install built ins in one of my closets for all of my craft and sewing stuff
Hope you enjoyed this little tour. Please give me any and all suggestions!
