The bathroom is thiiisssss close to being finished; we’re just waiting for a few final accessories to arrive. Today I wanted to share the free-standing linen cabinet we ordered for the room and the others we were considering, too!
I am one who thinks a free-standing linen cabinet can add a big dose of charm to a bathroom, no matter what the size. This bathroom is pretty small, and the space between the toilet and the wall (where we always envisioned some sort of storage) was even smaller at just under 30″. Something built-in could have made that whole corner feel clunky and closed in, so instead, we went the free-standing route and are so happy we were able to add storage and still keep a sense of airiness in the room.
We purchased this “rustic wood” linen cabinet with a 20% off coupon from eBay (it’s 20% off right this weekend!) to add a little bit of warmth to the mostly black and white (and pink!) bathroom, but here are all the other ones we love or considered.

We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Almost daily I get asked what I would call my home style. I don’t like to box myself in, but I definitely lean Modern Traditional with an emphasis on comfort when it comes to our home. This especially came up when I shared our Powder Bath Reveal on the blog. I think it changes slightly […]
