2018 Home Projects


This post is sponsored by Home Depot.

A new year has dawned. I’m being gentle with myself this year by not trying to makeover a gazillion spaces, but, rather, focus on three main rooms of my home. My master bathroom, my kids’ bathroom, and my laundry room. (Okay, I may have a guest room in the mix too, but that’s icing on the cake). In 2017, Home Depot helped me create the guest bathroom of my dreams and the family room of my dreams, so, naturally, Home Depot is my source of quality tile, decor and fixtures for my upcoming projects. I already have some ideas. You want to see?

For my master bathroom, I want to echo the design elements of my master bedroom by creating a luxurious escape from the world. Long hot showers and baths always feel better when you are in a space you enjoy. After this year, especially, I want to feel like I’m on an exotic vacation when I have 15 minutes of alone time. To create that space, I want to combine some southwest elements, some glam elements and some natural elements.

I’m currently loving terracotta tile and clay tiles overall. You see that style a lot in Arizona and California. Living in Arizona and being a lover of Spanish architecture, I would like to incorporate the southwest essence into my bathroom. Teal is a hot color right now and complementary to the warmth of the terracotta. It also just so happens to be the color of my bedroom wall. This beautiful penny tile and ceramic patterned tile is the perfect touch of teal. Wouldn’t you agree?  

The bathroom vanity and fixtures, however, would be where I would bring in the modern design. With a teak vanity, white counter tops, a clean white stand-alone tub and chrome faucets. I think it creates a beautiful juxtaposition and eclectic feel for the space.

I’m not going to lie...This bathroom is currently ooooogly. We’re talking old linoleum that is curling and an almond colored tub. Yikes! A renovation is long overdue.

This bathroom will need to have two sinks to suit Elle and Levi. Home Depot has some beautiful vanity options. I fell in love with this white one that even comes with a large framed mirror. It has plenty of storage for each kid, and even a spot to place baskets underneath.

I chose white black and blue as the color palette because it’s gender neutral. I also chose patterns to play with to make it feel more like a space for kids. This black and white watercolor gingham wallpaper feel masculine so I balanced it with a blue and white floral ceramic tile for the floors. The white geometric tile with black grout will be perfect for the bathtub and shower.

I am still loving gold and brass fixtures for bathrooms. Aren’t you? Home Depot has so many cool options. I particularly love the industrial look with black and brass. I thought this industrial metal and wood shelving unit would be great to further tie in that theme and provide storage.

Which bathroom do you think I should do first and what bathroom trends are you loving right now?
