This is not big or over-the-top fancy, but it is THEIRS. For months I obsessed over what color to paint the room. I did not want to have to redo it in a few years when they're teens. I also had to use a color that would coordinate with our lovely hallway wallpaper, as well as with the whacky-colored tile work which you'll see in a minute. So, I headed to one of my favorite stores, Benjamin Moore.
See what I mean about playing around with the postage stamp feature? Kind of distracting, but I couldn't figure out how to remove it.
Here's the tile work I mentioned. It's cool, but not what I would've chosen. I like the classic, timeless look of white subway tile or marble, but this is fun. My husband actually loves it, so it's staying.
Bought the bench and hand towels at a cute little store near the school where I teach. The topiary was from Pottery Barn. The silver brush and mirror were handed down from my mother-in-law. I love how soothing the blue color is. And do you want to know how much I love that shower curtain? It pretty much made the whole room. A splurge from Anthropologie. When I'm old and senile, I might just wear this thing. Yes, that's how much I love it.
We've had this print forever. I love the way the flounce in the skirt speaks to the ruffle in the curtain. I'm trying out the postage stamp feature and some decorator jargon now, too, apparently.
What a sweet sink! And I love the dark mirror and faucet against the light blue, especially combined with the light cabinet and granite.
The towel is also from Anthropologie. I've learned that it doesn't pay to scrimp on towels, at least not for this dirty family. They wear out and look ratty. Plus, I love that this one has such great texture.
Picked this up at Pottery Barn. My girls love him.
Yes, also from Anthropologie. As you can see towel hooks are rarely used in this house. Always easier to leave towels on the floor.
Let me tell you, there is nothing cuter than a skinny, brown-eyed, ten-year-old girl in a shower cap.
