So after much contemplation, David and I have decided to redo our master bathroom. We’ve considered it for a long time now and are ready to take the plunge. The idea of having to make so many design decisions and having people in my house for 6-8 weeks while they tear it apart and put it back together is slightly overwhelming to me, but I know the end results will be incredible.
I’ll show you some detailed pictures of its current state once I have a chance to clean it up a bit, but the process is really just getting started. Our designer/contractor told us that step one is picking out our new look, so we were excited to find a Tuesday morning that allowed us both to go check out all things cabinetry, tile and fixture.
Two eggs on a spelt wrap with fresh salsa and avocado. Lumi’s carrot mango juice on the side.
With our sitter with the girls, we grabbed hot drinks and were giddy about the idea of a morning date!
Sadly, about 10 minutes later our car overheated and we spent the next hour filling the radiator up with water, letting a nice gentleman with a leaf blower help cool it off and slowly making our way to the car shop. Whomp whomp.
I know most women are giddy at the idea of designing from scratch, but along with the fashion gene, I’m missing the home design gene in a major away. I know what I like (neutral, traditional, clean), but have a hard time piecing it together. Thank goodness for guided help.
I know grays are in in a major way, and I LOVE some of the pictures I’ve seen of them, but we’re sticking to a color pallet like the one above-ish. It goes well with our house and David and I fully embrace that we both are about traditional as traditional can get. I’m so excited!
Next it was fixtures and my goodness, who knew there were so many to choose from?!
I was almost ready to hyperventilate, but we narrowed down the options rather quickly, then stopped to check out the sweet light fixtures too. Since we are putting in a pedestal tub, we are considering a fun light element to hang above it.
The rest of the day was quite nice. I snagged some leftover ginger kale, mushroom and beef stirfry for lunch and after I put the girls down, I kicked my feet up with Cameron for a bit.
Once Kaitlyn was up, we relaxed on the porch for a bit…
It was a pretty great (WIAW) day and I look forward to sharing more of our renovation… if you care to see it?
If you could redesign your bathroom, what is one thing you would change or one thing you would love to have?
What makes or breaks a bathroom for you?
Any ideas/tips that I should consider?
