Design: White Bathrooms

2018 is the year of a couple of reno projects at my home. These are big renos that I’ve been putting off for a while, but this is the year. One of the projects to tackle is my basement combo laundry-bathroom (I’ve talked about this room here and here). It’s a well-used space, but it’s poorly designed. The sink is too small, the wallpaper is too floral, and it is well-past its 1990’s look.

I’m not going wild with my design – white, white, white – with hints of grey and black. I’m drawing inspiration from these spaces that have some common elements: white subway tile walls and grey/black floor tiles.

I think I’m set on chrome fixtures, and I’ll have a fantastic white laundry sink. I’ll be replacing my 90s washer/dryer and installing a stacked washer/dryer system (either separate units or an all-in-one). There’s much to do, that’s forsure! Care to follow along this makeover story?

 

Trivia Thursday: Book Matched Marble

What is book matched marble? It’s when two slabs of marble are set side-by-side like a mirror image, resembling the pages of an open book. The result is absolutely beautiful. As if marble on its own wasn’t beautiful enough, right?

The Friday Five: Christmas Decor

Since it’s December 1st and I’ve started to publish gift guides, I think it’s officially acceptable to share ideas about holiday decor. These spaces are certainly festive! Each is magical in white in its own particular way.

Design: The White Cabin

I keep dreaming about owning a cottage. Ideally, it’ll be a full-season cottage so that I can spend cozy winter weekends there doing (just about) nothing. And would I paint my cottage-cabin white? You bet! I’m inspired by these beautiful exterior and interior designs.

The Friday Five: When You’re Feeling Sick

I feel as though I have been fighting a sickness all week. Maybe when I finally slow down this weekend, it’ll finally take over. Hopefully not!

If you’re like me, when you’re feeling sick, all you want are…

cozy blankets – Doris Leslie Blau

lots of tea – Bea’s Cookbook

an oversize sweater – Damsel in Dior

my bed – as seen in Style at Home

flowers – Erica Cook

Have a great weekend, everyone!
