Bathroom Refresh

So I love sharing pictures of my home, and providing inspo for others who may be looking for it. However, sometimes you may find a beautiful image, but it just doesn’t work the same way in your space. For my powder room I found an image by one of my favorite designers and just fell in love.  I did a dark grasscloth on the walls and a gorgeous pedestal sink, and it turned out beautiful.

However, fast forward a few months into living in our home…and I realized under cabinet storage was actually crucial to a family with young kids! And grasscloth maybe wasn’t the best idea once we put in the pool and had lots of wet little kids coming in and out. It felt very formal for our main downstairs (now pool) bathroom, and made the small space feel dark.

So my bathroom refresh began, thanks to a very understanding husband! The first major change was shiplapping the walls.  It was the perfect backdrop and lightened up this small space, with the added benefit the walls that could easily be wiped down. I also ordered a new vanity that gave a more casual feel and also provided storage. Luckily all my fixtures and counters still worked, and a few accessory swaps and my bathroom refresh was complete!

With the right updates you can totally transform a space, and with a small space like a bathroom just a few key updates can do the trick! I recently was browsing on and saw they have this great room planning tool to help you design (or in my case redesign) your perfect space! I’ve pulled together a bunch of my favorites, and linked them for you below! I truly believe it helps to see items in a space to get it right, so head to their site and check out this awesome feature!

  1. It’s definitely harder to clean that typical wallpaper, but if you’re not worried about little boys completely missing the potty I think it would be absolutely fine for most people! I would recommend a backsplash around your sink if possible!

  2. Hi! We are thinking of doing grasscloth in our powder room as well and was wondering how practical it is. I think you felt the look wasn’t quite right for your family but practically, is it water proof? And cleaning water splatters? Etc? Any additional insight you can give after living with the grasscloth (other then aesthetics) would be greatly appreciated!
