This Jack & Jill bathroom moment between Polly and Faye’s rooms has never been shared here on the blog, but it’s one of my favorite spaces. I love how practical and functional it is to have this connecting bathroom for the two youngest, and although we haven’t done anything more than lay down a bathmat and hang a few framed art pieces, it gets a lot of love.
After finishing Faye’s room and giving Polly’s room some attention, it made sense to spend a little time setting the girls up for success in their bathroom. Eventually, we would love to paint the walls and cabinetry, upgrade the tile, and give it a proper flip, but sometimes it’s good just to make the most of what you can do NOW.
One thing I love about this bathroom is that the countertop height is perfect for little girls. No need to have a step-stool taking up floor space, so we plan to keep the original cabinetry until the girls are much older. We did, however, swap out the knobs for something a little cuter. This is my number one tip for anyone wanting to make an impact on a budget.
As I said, we’re not doing anything major in the girls’ bathroom for a while, but don’t underestimate the difference some fresh towels and new hardware can make. Here’s the direction I would love to take in the girls’ bathroom eventually, and I think it would make for a great weekend project! Do you have a bathroom space in your home that could benefit from a quick refresh?
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.

The next project we’re checking off our 2023 project list is the mudroom! This used to be the laundry room until we built out a much bigger, better laundry room upstairs. So, in the meantime, this space has been exclusively Cricket’s room. Cricket will still have a special space here, but we’re transforming this dingy […]
