Before & After: Kids Bathroom Makeover

kids bathroom makeover

Well, I am pretty excited about this post, and the new bathroom.  Judging by the photo above, I think the kids are, too.  ; )  That little cocked hip makes me smile every time I look at this image.  Not to mention those happy faces and cute glasses.

For those that are new here, WELCOME!  You can follow my home renovation plus what I am working on for clients by following me on Instagram or subscribing to this blog.  (see sidebar)

Today, I get to sit down and talk with you about how this bathroom came together, and you get to enjoy all of the photos.  Let’s start at the beginning, shall we?

Gray, Gold, & White Gender Neutral Nursery

As you may have noticed, I took a little month long vacation from the blog to rejuvenate.  My family and I went on our first family vacation in six years, I delved into design work that I am really happy with (can’t wait to share!), and I cherished the summer time with my kids.  But I am happy to be back, as I do really love writing and sharing, and I am so thrilled to finally be able to reveal one of my latest design projects – this precious nursery.  You may remember how this all started when I revealed the design board and plan in this post, and I have to say, it turned out even better than I imagined.  This couple has been so wonderful to work with, and I think they got the “traditional yet modern, calm nursery” they wanted.  Since they decided not to find out the sex of the baby, we crafted a space that could work for both genders.  I will have all of the DIY’s and overall thought process behind what you see in the room on the blog next week, but for today head on over to the Pottery Barn Building Blocks blog to see more of the space in depth.  Hope you enjoy it!

And because I know I’m going to get a ton of “where did you get that?” emails, here is a list of the sources from the room. (I will be talking about sources next week, but this list can help you be “in the know” until then.)  If I am forgetting one you are curious about, let me know in the comments!

Gray, White, & Gold Nursery Design

I know a lot of you love my client projects, and this one is going to be a great one!  It has been a while since I published any of my design work, though I am hoping to remedy that in the next few months and get everything completed and photographed.  The inspiration board above belongs to a couple I have been working with the past year.  They are simply lovely (I’ve been so lucky to have such kind, gracious clients these past few years!), and they are now expecting their first baby.  You will see more of their home in the future, but I will be sharing their completed nursery in May here and on the Pottery Barn Kids blog.  Because this couple decided not to find out the sex of their baby, we went with a really neutral scheme and will add a few girly or boy-y items after the baby is born.  (I cannot wait to find out!!)

The nursery is a good mix of modern and traditional, with the gray, white, and gold color scheme.  I’m super excited about the striped gold ceiling, using my DIY Acrylic Rods With Plumbing Hardware, the gorgeous bedding, and just seeing all of the elements come together to create a nursery that will be filled with lots of great moments.

Baby Fitz,

We can’t wait to meet you!  You will have a stylin’ nursery, that’s for sure.  Not to mention your parents are the sweetest, and they love you so much already.  We are working hard to create a nursery that is fun, creative, and inspiring for you, a room you can grow in.  Please stay in until your due date so we can get it all done!  xo

Many thanks to Pottery Barn Kids for sponsoring this nursery.
