There was a time when I basically refused to decorate withe blue. I was all about green and red, and that was that.
I’m so glad I’ve come around to blue, because I’m loving it. In our Milwaukee house, we dabbled in blue a bit with our shower curtain in the bathroom, bedspread in the master bedroom and curtains in the office.
Since we’re wrapping up painting over here, I’m starting to decorate. It’s fun to think about how different rooms will come together.
Well, what better room to start decorating than the smallest one? Plus I’m joining a fun $100 room makeover challenge hosted by my friend Erin from Lemons, Lavender & Laundry so the bathroom seemed like a good fit. 🙂
Erin is the queen of $100 room makeovers, which led to her starting the $100 Room Challenge. Every Wednesday in July, a group of bloggers will share progress they’ve made on a $100 room makeover in their homes.
Talk about perfect motivation to stay on budget and get a room completely done around here. You can see all of the other bloggers’ room design plans linked at the end of this blog post.
Here’s what I’m thinking for the bathroom design:
Coastal bathroom design:

Wall color: Krypton by Sherwin Williams. I looooove it, and my friend just texted me last week to say they’re painting their bathroom Krypton now, too. Yay!
Fellow renters, no reason to be stuck with the mirrors that come with the place. We’re swapping the mirrors out while we’re here to make the house a bit more ‘us’.
Today is a Good Day for a Good Day sign: One of my favorite quotes. This was a DIY project I did for the bathroom walls in our Milwaukee house. I’m thinking it’s perfect for this space. You can buy a similar sign here if you’re not in the DIY mode.
Soap dispenser: White seems to be a common theme around here. I’m thinking something like this.
Nightlight: I love these for bathrooms, they’re just bright enough.
Hand towel: I picked this towel up the other day. I love the little fringe.
Garbage can: These rope handles are too perfect. I need this garbage can.
Towel ring: Probably just going to leave this one. Similar one here.
Pedestal sink: Leaving this, obviously. Similar one here.
Lights: Still debating if we’re going to swap these out or not. Pros: they’re silver and already installed, cons: they’re not really our style. Stay tuned.
