A Simple Bathroom

Happy Monday friends! Today I’m sharing our simple master bathroom in our new house.

I have many visions of what this space could one day be, but for now I’m enjoying every ounce of its simplicity and newness.

I’ve discovered with this bathroom, you don’t need a lot or to spend a lot of money to make a space functional and nice.

We went bare bones with upgrades in here with standard cabinets and laminate counter-tops, but I honestly couldn’t be happier with it. We’ll eventually get around to hardware for the cabinets and new vanity lights, but for now a few baskets and mirrors is working just fine!

Here are a few things we bought for the space:

Mirrors: So glad we went with normal mirrors instead of ‘hard to keep clean’ sheet mirrors. The round mirrors are from Home Goods for $29.99 each, rectangle mirror is from Tuesday Morning for $39.99.

Linens: The hand towels are from West Elm and the shower curtain from Pottery Barn, but we bought both for a fraction of normal prices at DownEast. Love these bath towels from Bed, Bath and Beyond..kinda pricey, but I still had a few wedding gift cards…

Baskets: My basket obsession is still in full throttle. Loving the extra storage! We found these ones at thrift stores and Marshalls for great prices.

Rug: It took me a few attempts to find a good rug for this space. I really dislike how cold tile is so wanted a large area rug. I ended up purchasing this round jute rug from Rugs USA for $50. They have great sales and free shipping, but a not so good return policy.  It costs a lot to return a rug if it doesn’t work, so you just have to make sure you’re pretty confident before purchasing!

Vanity: Little white desk from Ikea. Perfect size for this little nook.

I like carrara marble and pearly cabinets as much as any girl, but sometimes simple and easy can works great!

    I love your stacked basket cases! I’m still trying to organize my bathroom. I’m not really happy with the outcome. Baskets may be the solution… and I need to simplify too. Thanks for the tips. :)

    I am so in love with this bathroom. At first I thought the baskets were little suitcases! Also, those stacked towels are beautiful. I am just IN LOVE!

    I love it Emily!! Simple is best. I really love the little touch of color with the green plant and vase of finger nail polishes.

    Hello Emily! Your bathroom is serene with its clean lines. Could you kindly share the resource of your
    “For richer, etc… hand towels” please? Did you buy them like that or had them personally monogrammed? I had a tough time trying to locate them. Thank you so much!

    Hi Eowyn, these towels were originally purchased from redenvelope.com but it doesn’t look like they have them any more. I get things embroidered all the time and it doesn’t cost too much, you should be able to google it to find someone in your area. Good luck!

    Thank you! There are some places here and down the shore – I will look into them. My daughter’s teacher is getting married in a couple of months and I thought those towels would make such a sweet wedding gift. All the best to you!
