Bathroom Ideas

Demo is going SWIMMINGLY! I will have more pictures to update soon.  But for now here is a fun post about my dream bathroom.

So, we are planning to have a 1890's appropriate bathroom on the first floor. with classic tile choices and a pedestal sink.  But upstairs i'm thinking we should have some more fun.

I put together this mood board of my thoughts - mostly so i can convince Jonny this is a good direction to go in.

I'm thinking encaustic style floor tiles - with white subway tile in the shower surround.  Simple chrome bath and sink fixtures. A modern vintage furniture piece with two white vessel bowl sinks. Black modern and classic light fixtures and a colorful kilim runner for the floor.

Do you think it could work in a Midwestern farmhouse? did i spend too long in California? Will everybody hate it in 5 years? or 2 hours?


  1. You can't go wrong with black and white (wish I'd done it) and the vintage dresser/vanity is what you have loved for a while now.all looks good to me.

    1. I do love the look... but we are on a pretty tight deadline and i am getting worried we won't find anything i'll love... i'm posting some other options now, give me your thoughts!

  2. As someone who has been through a few home improvements, I have friends who agonized over the same decision. They have also wondered if they would love it or hate it. I say go for it! If you like the design, its doubtful you will hate it anytime soon. Whatever you decide, I hope you are happy with the end results!
