Make Your Guest Bathroom Inviting

You know how you see the bathrooms on HGTV and they look like a dream? Well, you too can have your dream bathroom. It doesn’t have to be only for the pros!  When our house was built, every room was “tan”… and that was a no-go for me!  The first room I took on to change was the Guest Bath!!  It’s a room you hardly use, but when you have guests over, they do! So, I had to make it perfect for them!  I love to decorate and I love to use color.  So one day, I popped into Sherwin Williams after watching an episode of HGTV Dream Home which happened to feature a beach house…aka my future home :).  The colors they used were amazing, so, of course, that’s the color I chose! It’s bright, cheery, and inviting… it’s coral! I had the guest bath painted and decorated in one day… boy, was that a surprise when the husband got home!  But, he knows that is my thing, so he rolls with it!

I started with the vibrant color I mentioned!  I also painted the “oak” cabinet a dark brown… ooh la la!  Make sure to always have a good soap and lotion handy for your guests!

The décor ~ I used a lovely turquoise vase and filled in with flowers, a Scentsy warmer to keep it smelling fresh, and cute branch wreath.  I like BIG decorations, so although this vase takes up a large area of the sink, it was perfect.

A good hand towel that will last.  I fell in love with this beachy towel that I found at Anthropology which contains coral and turquoise combined.  It was a bit more than I usually spend on just a towel, but when you LOVE something, you buy it!  I used a vase on the back of the commode filled with a candle, sand, and shells to keep the beach feel going.

A set of three mirrors going up the wall is a good way to make the room appear larger.

Leave no wall untouched!!  That’s my motto! I loved these metal leaf frames and used them in the last space I had to “spruce” it up a bit more!  I tied in the leaf frames by using leaf shower curtain holders which are green and also beachy looking!  I always mix colors in any room, so don’t be afraid to try it! Your guests will thank you!

Hello! I was born and raised in a small Kansas town but have always loved the city and all that it has to offer! I love to travel, I love fashion, and I love to eat…and write about it! My small town life growing up has definitely shaped who I am today and as I grow older, I am starting to appreciate that more and more. When I am not writing or at my day job, I am most likely baking, running, spending time at the local farmers market, or hitting up a good happy hour! I am currently in Nursing school and will graduate in 2017, I love helping people!! I am obsessed with taking pictures that aren’t conventional and sharing them with the world. My family and friends mean the world to me and I cherish each second I spend with them. I currently have my own blog titled “Dirt Roads ~ High Heels”
