Aw man! Because this is the only bathroom downstairs, it is automatically the place where we send our visitors when they need to use the restroom, so a quick makeover for this year’s party is imperative. We would love to replace the dingy, blue-gray floors, but that doesn’t exactly fit into our budget or time frame–but we do have plans to refresh them. The to-do list breaks down like this:
We hope by picking up a few more blue accents in the space, it will feel more put together. Fingers crossed! Since we are only giving ourselves a week to do this little renovation (yes, a week!), forgive us for already getting started last night. First on our to-do list–saying “goodbye” to our disgusting sink and faucet.
woohoo! so excited :D
So exciting! Can’t wait to see the progress you guys make!
Oooh yay!! I can’t wait to see how this all comes together and turns out! That new sink is going to make such a difference!
Oh! I love seeing how this bathroom changes. It’s nice to revamp small spaces. You can accomplish a lot more in a lot less time. If anyone can do it in a week, it’s you. :)
That’s an idea. The room is so small, I think the screen would make it even smaller! But when we finally upgrade our washer and dryer to front loaders, we have plans to disguise them a little more.
I’d pull out the grays to flow with the rest of your house.
Can you add a tri-fold screen across the bathroom between the toilet and the washing machine?
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.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
