Happy New Year!

One of my New Year's resolutions is to blog more. I think that was my resolution last year, too, but I was all talk and no plan. I still don't have much of a plan for this year, except to sit down and write every day.  I almost failed on Day 1 - I mean, it is 11pm - but I'm here before midnight (oy vey, a day late and a dollar short- the uszh).

However,  I will be back to the blog more this year, if not every day. I have been so inspired lately and can't wait to share all of my ideas and loves with y'all.  This year I'm really hoping to finish up our master bedroom and bathroom so I can have a saaaanctuaarryy (said with drama).  I have visions of having a bathroom so fabulous that everyone wants to hang out in there with me and drink champs.

 Kind of like Heather Dubrow.

Soooo I'm throwing Miles Redd's mirrored bathroom (top image) out there as an option.  I just need to find a contractor who doesn't laugh when I show him that picture and say "do that."  Actually, scratch that.  It would never work.  You put a 2 year old and a 5 year old in front of a mirror and they will for sure turn into slobbery lizards/scientists who want to know what exactly will stick to it on any given day.*  Nope too much temptation.  And it'll tap into one of my very, very few OCD stressors - smudge on mirrors.

* Today, I actually found my boys with their faces and tongues smashed up against the display window at Crate and Barrel.  It's a huge window that looks out over a busy intersection and there they were.  I had to "count to 5" in my super stern whisper just to get them to stop, which is always embarrassing because I know I don't sound as scary as I hope I do.

I could do this though!

I mean, who wouldn't want that to be their bathroom.

Here's one of my all time faves.  I feel like I would need a house in Charleston or New Orleans to pull this off though.

Oops I went back to the mirrors.  So glam.

This sink.  The floor.  The perfect size arched doorway. The wall color.  The timeout chair for me so I don't have to sit on the actual potty to hide.  Genius.

This one looks pretty heavenly.  I bet their view is pretty.  I'm trying to figure out how to get a fireplace in my bathroom.  Kip seems to think you have to have some sort of ventilation system like a chimney.  I say, "minor details."

Anyway, cheers to a fabulous 2016! I'll be back soon with my real bathroom inspiration!

Ok, hopefully this was a good set up so that when I show Kip all of the fancy finishes I want in my bathroom he'll actually be relieved.  


  1. Wow, Jennifer you are popping up on my blog roll, like regularly! A bath is a perfect sanctuary, I mean if you an in the midst of bubbles galore, Kip HAS to resolve whatever the boys are up to!!

    Happy New Year and All the Best in 2016!

  2. Every single one of these are just gorgeous!

  3. So many gorgeous bathrooms - the second one is one of my favorites!!

  4. All of these bathrooms are beautiful! I have to agree with you, though, about the mirror. It's pretty - but it will show every smudge. You'd be Windexing every day!

  5. Such gorgeous rooms! I love the fireplace and big window in the last one, perfect spot for a relaxing soak with a glass of bubbly. A real fire is so cosy and comforting. All these bathrooms are beautiful and so unique. So nice to see as the bathroom often seems to end up a neglected room when it comes to decorating and moving away from the ordinary.
