Project: Bathroom Remodel Inspiration

Bathroom Inspiration


I’ll be starting a very special renovation soon – my Mom’s bathroom and kitchen. The bathroom has a few challenges. As with many homes built almost one hundred years ago, her bathroom is quite small and has two doors – one from the hallway and one from the master bedroom. We’re trying to find a solution but whatever we decide, I’m sure it will be simple and elegant and while small, it will be a petite bathroom with style and comfort.


Next week I’ll be sharing our ideas for the kitchen – this is a project filled with a lot of love!

Changing My Morning Mood

TargetStyle - Morning Routine - 1

Since becoming a mom time is precious – especially in the morning. In the beginning, I didn’t have much of a routine. You could find me running around trying to get everyone prepped for the day. In the end, I found myself forgetting about myself. Something had to change.

I made the decision that it was worth it to wake up thirty minutes early to have “me time.” It’s a time when I’m up drinking a cup of tea, getting ready in the bathroom (without the chaos) and finding inspiration in the quiet of the morning.

Having an organized and beautiful bathroom helps me achieve this each morning. I went shopping at Target in order to find things to spruce up my bathroom routine. New towels with a fresh pattern, nifty organizers that improve the serenity of the bathroom, and products to pamper myself with all make my space in the morning tranquil and inviting. You’ll often find me lighting a candle while soaking in a tub with bath salts.

Bathroom Makeover: A Fresh Coat

BEHR Paint: Before & Inspiration

Moving into my current home, I was thrilled to find that it had a clawfoot tub. I’ve always loved their timeless style and curves. There was only one drawback – the outside of the tub was crusty and discolored. I tried to cover it up by having along shower curtain but that defeated the purpose – you couldn’t see it at all. I decided to research to see if there might be a solution. I found out that clawfoot tubs became the rage in the Victorian Era. This was a time when color was used in everything – clawfoot tubs included. They would just paint the outside of the tubs, and for that reason, they are purposefully left rough so the paint can adhere.

I couldn’t wait to complete this project. I ran straight to Home Depot and chose the perfect charcoal color of BEHR Marquee Stain Blocking Paint & Primer. I taped the floor with plastic so any spills could be quickly cleaned. It was so easy. First, I sanded the old paint off to create a smoother surface to paint. Then I applied two coats of the BEHR Marquee Graphic Charcoal Stain Blocking Paint & Primer. It went on like silk.

The color was flawless! With my dark tile floor, it almost looks as if the tub were floating. And one afternoon project transformed my bathroom!

simplicity at its finest . . .

This past Sunday my mom and I set out to look for condo’s in San Francisco – she’s in the midst of moving here. When we came across a perfect abode for her (fingers crossed everything falls into place) we started dreaming up a few renovations, especially the bathroom. We kept talking about white, white, white.

After envisioning how I would redesign the bathroom I started sifting through my stacks of glossies to pull together my vision. When I came across this stunning bathroom done by Barbara Sallick in House Beautiful the search was over. This bathroom is perfection with the white tones, stunning pedestal sink and glossy subway tiles, and to top it all off, a French tri-fold mirror. I’m madly in love with it and wishing I could do this in my rental.

bathroom: which one do you adore?

I always find myself admiring beautiful bathrooms – probably because it’s something that I dream about often. From the tile, to the fixtures, to the colors you can pick out, I’m always in awe at how people decide to design their bathroom.
If you could pick one of these beautiful bathrooms, which one would you pick for your home?
