Child Bathroom Inspiration

We are getting the bathroom set for our little one and I am enjoying finding a happy balance between child and traditional bathroom decor.


I like the idea of picking colors that can be grown into or that will go will with different accent colors later on as they grow.

Simple fun decor that can be easily switched out like bath mats and a shower curtain are great ideas for budget friendly changes. 

LOVE THIS!!! Pictures of kids in the tub in the bathroom... great idea!

Bathtub pictures in the bathroom are my favorite! It's a great reminder how much fun bath time is when someone might not want to take a bath!

A stool with storage is a great double duty item! This is a must have item for me in a kids bathroom.

Turn your guest room into a resort getaway!

I've been trying to figure out what I want to do with our guest room. I have always loved the beach getaway feel but there's something about an extra touch of luxury that's been drawing my eye in lately.

Making a galley kitchen work!

For those of us who love to cook, we tend to look down at a galley kitchen as a non-functional environment. Here are a few ways you can make a galley kitchen work for you!

For the long galley kitchens, consider taking away some of the upper cabinets so it doesn't feel as cramped. Maximize your storage and minimize your items to only the necessities. You might also consider getting a hutch in your dinning room to hold the extras.

Keep it clean! Make sure the counter tops are cleaned off and there's nothing in the way of the floor. It will make your walkway look bigger and give you a roomier feeling.

Keep it well lit! A bright kitchen is a happy kitchen. Natural light is always a better option but if you can't get that, any lighting will work. Make it feel bright and airy!

If you can, open up one wall to make it feel more open and easier for entertaining.

Gorgeous Eat in Kitchens

There's something I love about an eat in kitchen. To me it's a great place for intimate family dinners. With the dinning room mostly for formal occasions, this is the spot where you get to gather with just the immediate family and create a fun setting. 


There are some spaces that are better left being informal!


I love the idea of everyone in the middle of kitchen. I also like the idea of pushing those stools in and having extra counter space!


If you like the separation you can make the eat in part around the edge of the kitchen instead of the middle. 

nice use of small kitchen space!

Or get really cozy with a little nook area at the end of the kitchen. This is perfect for small spaces!


Do you have an eat in kitchen and if you do, what is your favorite thing about it?
