Hi! Happy Thursday! I know I’ve shared about our guest bathroom before and looking back on that post, I’m honestly thoroughly embarrassed. The lighting is so terrible, heck, I don’t even love what we did in there so far but I guess that’s part of growing with this blog of mine.
Stephen and I decided to work on the rooms in our house in order from front to the back of the house so once the guest bedroom is finished (I’ll be sharing those updates soon!), the guest bath naturally will be next. I know I had already started going in a farmhouse direction with the space but after a lot of thought, I’m realizing that was just the easy option for me. I’ve thought about it so much recently and have come to the conclusion that while I love the farmhouse style, I think what makes my design heart soar is a tad bit different than that. I guess if I had to describe my style/what brings me joy in our home it is functional, cozy, has a cottage feel, has bright/airy spaces, neutrals with touches of color, a hint of elegance and a dose of farmhouse.
I also want to mention that while I know that we’ve already made a couple of changes in the bathroom such as changed out the vanity light, added hardware, and added some DIY shelves, I’ve decided not to dwell on this and take it as a lesson. From now on, I won’t work on a room without completing a vision board. Stephen, did you hear that?? 😉
With all of that in mind, I gathered some inspiration for the guest bathroom. The space is a bit of a struggle because there is no natural light so I really want to brighten it up even more if possible. I also want to utilize what we already have in there. Which, by the way is perfectly livable and great as is, I’m aware. I just want to add some style and character while sticking to a budget.
Onto the inspiration!
First up is from a favorite of mine, Nesting with Grace. I love the shiplap, hexagon tile flooring, and functionality of the space.
I found this next bathroom on Pinterest and I love the character in here. The coffered ceiling, the subway tile on the wall, the tile on the floor… Yummy. The room itself is pretty simple but still has so much character.
Here’s an amazing “after” photo of Laura Godfrey’s master bath transformation. Her style aligns really closely with mine. I love the wood mirrors with touches of metals to bring in some elegance AND it has a hint of farmhouse with the tile floor. Love it.
And the greatest of them all… Another one of Laura’s! I can’t tell you all enough how much I love this bathroom. Every time it shows up on my feed it brings me joy. I love the shiplap (duh), the wallpaper (which is in our laundry room!), the wood vanity, the elegant touches of gold, and the baskets that bring in some cottage vibes. It’s perfect!
The next thing on my to-do list for the guest bathroom… Make a vision board! Like I said, I’m not going to do anymore design in our house without creating these boards. I’m excited to work on it and share it with you all. Thank you all for the support! I hope you have a great rest of the day.
