Master Bathroom Inspiration

Master Bathroom Inspiration

We’re just getting back from New Orleans and I’m full of inspiration for our Master Bathroom renovation. The city is filled with a mixture of vintage, modern and traditional and I love every second of it. I’ve pulled together my inspiration and a few achievable looks for our Master Bathroom. But first, you’ve gotta see the current state.

Functionally, I’d like to turn the half wall by the toilet into a pocket door with a transom (to allow more natural light into the room). Inspiration: Stained Glass Window or Transoms Direct TR-1.

For the window textiles, I think it would look like to install a cafe curtain rod. Will allow us privacy, but provide the most amount of light.

What I’m Digging: December

This time of year can be draining. The weather starts to hit and you just want to curl up with a warm blanket by the fire (or Netflix fire). When the holiday’s hit, I feel a little more drained every year.

When we lived in Texas, it was great to fly home for the holidays. I had a small list of very close friends and family that I made intentions to see – the rest of the time was spent recharging with my family. Now that we’ve moved home, Vacation Days are filled with projects around the house – we have more holiday parties to attend, and life simply has gotten crazier. It is all good things – I’ve found that I need to change my approach to make sure I’m getting recharged.

This year, I’m hoping to be more intentional about spending time with loved ones.

  1. Unplugging – Attempting to loose my phone a little more – or leave it in the other room and appreciate the moments.
  2. Relaxing – It may mean cleaning the house a little more on week nights, but I want to take away as many simple excuses to not lean into this season.
  3. Schedule Fun – Sometimes it can feel so stressful and overwhelming with the million work and family parties. Schedule a date with your gal pals to make sure you’re taking care of you too.
  4. Shop Early – Shop early and don’t overthink it. I start making a list of Christmas Gift Ideas in January, keep a note on my phone and add it as people mention things they’d like. I took my long list of ideas and went wild on Black Friday and Cyber Monday to get some deals on the items I knew people would love.
