Aside from the gleaming brass and frosted glass on the shower door, the guest bathroom had been so nicely updated we were tempted to forgo this blue monstrosity and use this as the master! Alas, we decided Mother and Daddy-O would be much more likely to come watch the littles with a lovely suite to rest their heads.
We had our contractors remove the glass shower enclosure in favor of a shower curtain. And we traded in the large beveled mirror for a more decorative option. Other than that, we just added a few decorative touches to make it flow seamlessly from the bedroom area.
I adored the tile, cabinets, hardware and counters from the instant I laid eye on it! I wouldn’t have changed a think if I’d picked them myself. Even the toilet was lovely! The mirror above the sink is from Ballard Designs and was a lucky outlet find. The white linen towels were handmade for me by Cottage and Cabin Interiors – the same lovely lady that did the linens in my powder room. I searched high and low for art to go above the towel bar and swooned over the heron oil painting by low country artist Mary Kicklighter as soon as I spied it in Sweet Tea. Would you believe she was even such a doll as to email ME after I mentioned finding the oil on my last trip down to Savannah??!?!?! Honey planked together a few pieces of wood removed from a built in bookcase original to the house. The apothecary jars are from Hobby Lobby and Stein Mart and the egg soaps are from Aux Belles Choses in New Orleans. The soap and lotion dispensers are from Target.
The white linen shower curtain by Cottage and Cabin Interiors is ruffled at the bottom and box pleated at the top. She can pretty much make anything under the moon and was happy to deliver just what I had been seeing in my mind’s eye! The rug is from Pottery Barn – Hayden in Porcelain Blue.
The armoire once lived in the guest room at our old home, but fit perfectly in this space between the door and the towel bar. I love having real furniture in a bathroom – makes it seem so luxurious to me! Inside are towels, toiletries and another lovely oil painting by Mary Kicklighter.
The signed glicee is by Savannah artist Ray Ellis. Mother and Daddy-O have given me a few of his pieces over the years and I adore them. More towels from Cottage and Cabin Interiors, also done with my custom monogram. They can be washed, but I switch them out for regular towels when we have guests.
The balloon shade is kind of a funny thing…I sewed this new fabric (Marrakesh Cobblestone left over from bedroom) right on top of the old fabric for a 30 minute quick fix. I must say, it worked beautifully! The pie crust table and petite chair are antiques passed down by Mother. The Double Gourd Ceramic Table Lamp in Turquoise is from JC Penney ($40!) and the corona crown was a gift from Sister. The frame used to be red on the inside, but a quick coat of Annie Sloan’s duck egg blue chalk paint took care of that!

I am over the moon with how these two rooms turned out. And apparently the plan is working as Mother and Daddy-O spend an awful lot of time here helping us out and watching the littles :-)
