I am working with some clients who just purchased a second home.  The home is in really great shape.  It's simple, but really clean.  They will be decorating the home with extra furniture pieces they already own. But, they wanted some help decorating their new master bathroom {and bedroom}.  They don't have anything for those two rooms so we get to start from scratch!

 I thought I would share the fun sample board that serves as our 'road map' for the bathroom.


We are going with white walls, and the floors are already white tile, the bathroom will feel light and bright.  Which is good because it is really small!

Here are a few inspiring white bathrooms….



Pretty bathrooms!

Hopefully I will have some fun 'after' pictures to share with you!!

OUR HOME :: the girl's bathroom

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, I am slowly trying to get more pictures of our home on the blog.  I am always changing things, so I am sure as soon as I get pictures of the different rooms, they will be outdated ;-)

The weather has been so nice, we have been soaking up the last days of summer!  Which means I haven't had much time to work on finishing up my dining room wall.  So, I thought I would post a few photos of the girl's bathroom instead!

This bathroom is located in the original part of our 1908 home.  The original home was around 900 s.f., and we added about 1200 s.f. {plus a garage}.


My favorite thing about this bathroom, are the original wood floors.  They aren't perfect {at all} but I love all of the history and character!!

It's a simple little bathroom.  It's not flashy, but it serves it's purpose well.


It's really hard to photograph because it's surrounded by hallway with no natural light!

Matt installed  wainscoting around the bottom half of the walls.  All of our trim work in the house is painted off white.  I love that it's clean and bright, but not a crisp white.  Our house is an oldie, with a lot of different materials and textures.   Pure, bright white  just didn't seem appropriate for our trim work.


I love this ruffle shower curtain.  It adds just a bit of a femininity.  And since it's the girl's bathroom, I figured that was appropriate ;-)


A little stool so my little Miss can go potty and wash her hands.  And a little basket full of washcloths...


I found this mirror on clearance years ago at Marshalls.  It's metal; it was dented and painted a hideous color. I just painted a fresh coat of paint on it and distressed the edges....perfect!


The hand towels are from Cost Plus, they launder really well!!


This little cabinet houses rubber bands, bandaids, cotton balls, toilet paper and more in those itty-bitty little drawers.


Any girl loves fresh flowers in her bathroom!


These cute little candle holders where a gift when we sold one of our vacation rentals to the sweet couple from Texas.


Marketing works I tell ya! Addilyn had to have the Seasame Street toothbrush and toothpaste!


I made these little paper flowers to fill up a little space.....simple and cute...


When we moved back into our home last year, I didn't want to spend a lot of money on this bathroom because I know in a couple of years when we re-do the girl's bedroom, we will re-do the girl's bathroom!

Thanks for taking a peek at our simple little guest bathroom!  I hope to snap more photos soon!!



I am working on a floor plan for some local clients.  They are a sweet couple with two equally sweet children, and they live in a darling old house, just a few blocks from us.  They are looking to remodel one of their bathrooms, and I thought I would share some of the photos I used for inspiration.


The house is an old Craftsman.  The owner loved the idea of an apron/farm style sink.






I don't blame her, I love the idea as well!

We also decided to go with a clawfoot tub/shower combo instead of a walk-in tiled shower.




Flooring and wall covering will most likely be determined by the budget.

And we can't forget light fixtures!



I love my job!

BEFORE & AFTER :: a master bathroom remodel

I guess this isn't technically a 'before + after' post, because I can't seem to find any 'before' photos!  So, below are a few 'after' photos of the master bathroom Matt remodeled for the lovely clients who live on the golf course.  Their other two bathrooms were the most recent 'before + after' posts.....


The finished bathroom now has two vanities, a his + hers.


The window adds great natural light and the plantation shutter add plenty of privacy.


The walls and floor received new stone....


More of the split faced marble that we saw in their den bathroom.  Isn't it beautiful?!?



The pendants add a lovely feminine touch.

I am so sorry that I don't have 'before' photos!!  I hope you enjoyed the few 'after' photos that we snapped!

Have a lovely Easter weekend!


BEFORE & AFTER :: guest bath remodel

232323232 fp5325nu324725967WSNRCG34-6-66327nu0mrj.jpg

It's been a little over a year since we completed three bathroom remodels for some lovely clients in McMinnville.

They have a beautiful Ranch style home on the golf course.  They had updated the kitchen a few years ago and it was time to update the bathrooms.

What fun!!  Below are 3 BEFORE pictures.....


This bathroom was classic 1970's, complete with a purple toilet, sink and bathtub....


The bathroom had one window...perfect for allowing a bit of natural light!!


The bathtub was in really good shape, we opted to have it refinished instead of replaced.



Lovely, don't you think?

Matt built beautiful, distressed, hickory cabinetry.  I love how the cabinetry really warms up the space.


It took a few tries to find the perfect stain color.  The persistence paid off, don't you think?

I love the marble countertops!  Clean, classy and timeless.


And the marble floors.....so classic.


The tub finished out really well, it looks brand new!  If your bathtub is in good shape, refinishing is such great way to save money.

Notice the white subway tile wainscoting in the back ground?  Subway tile is still one of my favorite tiles!


The homeowner installed grasscloth wall paper.  The texture is a beautiful addition to the bathroom!


One more photo of the vanity......

If you love this bathroom, wait until I show you the other two!  The homeowner had great taste, it was so fun to work with her!

Until then, have a wonderful weekend!
