black and white and a pool house bath
hi sweet friends! well it has been a bit! (insert me covering my face in embarrassment;) we have just been busy swimming and soaking up every last second of our new pool this summer...it seriously is like you are on vacation. but at home. so the very best of both worlds! so with so much swimming happening, we still haven't totally finished the pool house...we have to cut the faces off of brick we have left over from our home to wrap the foundation, and jeffrey has to build out a large step (design still not decided), but i wanted to go ahead and share inside the pool house bathroom that is pretty much finished. and can i just say having a pool house bathroom was pretty much the best decision EVER. like ever ever. it has been so wonderful to have a bathroom so close, and one with a concrete floor so everyone doesn't even have to dry off...just run right around the corner and then right back to swimming! the design of the bathroom all started with this AMAZING light from barnlightelectric.com....it is so beautiful, the pictures truly do not even do it justice.... barnlightelectric.com over 5 years ago when we started the addition. it is in the half bath and knew i wanted a similar light for the pool house bath. so once i fell in love with the white porcelain barn light, i knew i wanted to keep the bathroom as simple as possible to let the light and the view of the trees outside steal the show! so i painted the walls and ceiling in sherwin williams alabaster, the perfect warm white. jeffrey installed the board batten treatment to add texture and to tie in to the exterior. amazon.com for a great price. i think is was $138, it is not as heavy duty as the one in our master bath (some plastic parts) but i think it will be fine for the pool house. shadesoflight.com turned out perfect! i love that it is just the simple metal frame, and the little shelf gives it that little something that makes it special. i started out looking for a vintage mirror, but everything i found was too wide...the sink we had to go with to fit is pretty tiny....i found the wall mount sink at lowe's for a steal of $40, and the sweet faucet with the vintage look porcelain knots is another find from amazon.com..... bollandbranch.com and the shampoo and conditioner bottle as well as the soap bottle on the sink are all from my dear friend jenny jennysteffens.blogspot.com ...i have them in our bathrooms in our home and i love the simplicity...no more mismatched bottles! (insert praise hands;) thebellabeanshop.com... i mean ticking stripe, ruffles and a monogram?! southern girl swimsuit perfection! bollandbranch.com...they are seriously the biggest, softest, most fluffiest (it's a word:) beach towels in the history of ever!
