Inspirado: Bathroom

I’m finally able to focus my attention on our first floor bathroom. I’ve started in there a little bit already, but we hit some plumbing snags and had a little trouble removing the old vanity while we had our floors done. (More on that later) So now that I’m able to really dive in, I’ve been collecting some much-needed inspiration.

This is our main bathroom, and it’s also right off the entry way, so guests use it frequently too. It’s tricky designing a bathroom that has to appeal to so many people. It houses our only shower, so this bathroom gets a lot of use. It needs to be gender neutral, kid friendly, adult friendly, guest friendly, as well as serving as our main area for getting ready in the mornings. I want it to feel clean and bright. I want it to be relaxing, but also a little whimsical for kiddos. I know, I know, I’m asking a lot of one bathroom.

Here’s a few ideas I’m throwing around:

Here are a few things I’m using/want to use. You can see there is a little bit of beach theme. I want to keep it sophisticated, but add some fun things in for kiddos, like the octopus pics and whale soap dish, without going overboard.
