If this feels like a weird section of my Home Tour, just go with it, please. Bathrooms are small, and our three came together pretty easily (and quickly). They are the most “done” rooms in the house, really!

Guest Bathroom:

This bathroom is located upstairs between mine and Joseph’s offices, near the guest bedroom. As much as I would love a beautiful frilly shower curtain, I decided it needed to be somewhat masculine to make up for the purple bedroom. In the end, I’m very happy with it! I love the wall color especially and am glad I went as dark as I did.

Powder Room:

This the half-bath off the living room.

This is actually Leonardo’s bathroom. And I don’t mean that he uses the litter box in here–he uses the toilet. He’s five years old and started doing this a few months ago with absolutely no training. If the bathroom door is closed or the toilet seat is down, he cries until we figure out the problem and fix it for him. I nearly had a heart attack the first time I walked in on him, but we’ve learned to appreciate it.

If you demand, I have photographic evidence.  But with respect to Leonardo’s privacy, I will only post them in the comment section upon request.

You will have to forgive me for these photos; the powder room is small and difficult to photograph accurately, especially with the sharply-colored decorations I used.

Master Bathroom:

This bathroom is found through double-doors in our bedroom. Towards the back left we have a room for the toilet (which, by the way, Leonardo does not use–he only likes the powder room), our walk-in closet, and a linen closet (the door to which is not pictured above).

Joseph’s grandmother gave us this antique shaving mirror a few months ago. It’s come in quite handy!


  1. I love this series, it’s kind of inspired me to do the same, except then I realize our apartment is tiny and I didn’t really decorate it much. But I might want to do it anyway, if not just for the memories of our first apartment.


  2. I still love those little birds in the first bathroom. They are adorable. All of your bathrooms are lovely though!

  3. Lovely. I like the guest bath a lot too. It’s a bit daring to choose such a dark color for a small space, but it looks fantastic. :)

  4. ahhhh i love it all! my favorite is the first bathroom. i wish you could come here and help me decorate my house…you have such good taste!

      I picked it up at Bed, Bath, & Beyond but have seen it at a few other places as well, including Target and Urban Outfitters.

  6. I was wondering if you know the paint brand and color you used for the first bathroom. Thanks!!
