We were not planning on doing an outdoor shower until our contractor asked if there’s going to be a shower in the pool bathroom. There’s only going to be enough room for either a stacked washer and dryer, or a shower, but not both. Lately we’ve been leaning more and more towards washer and dryer for towels and suits so our minds were open to an outdoor shower… and he really talked us into it.
Apparently it’s not that hard to add an outdoor shower if you already have a hose spout already plumbed and so we’re going for it. Right in this little nook next to our bedroom, (just use your imagination) there’s going to be steps that lead down into the shower. It definitely won’t be a naked shower situation but it will be somewhat private with a dividing brick wall with a lattice top, similar to our other brick walls.
They’ve already made so much progress since we made this decision a couple weeks ago!
The moment we decided to move forward with the shower, I took to Pinterest and saved a bunch of images to my outdoor shower board to get the gears turning.

Yes, we are mounting the shower fixture directly onto the brick and I think it’s going to be stunning. We would especially love to include a hand sprayer attachment like this.

Naturally patina’d red brick and copper plumbing. Stunning.
Wouldn’t mind showering in this overgrown, shady oasis.

I’m not saying we’re going to have a sink with the shower, but I’m not saying no to a mirror, especially an organic one like this. I also love seeing the shower mounted on this beautiful stone.
I can see it all coming together and can’t wait to share more!
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.

One of our biggest projects this year is building out an upstairs laundry room using borrowed space from the playroom. Chris and I have been drawing up and re-drawing floor plans and elevations that I can’t wait to share. The biggest hurdle we’re designing around is this great, big window which is a blessing and […]
