waiting for home.

This boy(s) bathroom turned out so cute. And its special. 

Why? a little boy is awaiting new siblings from overseas.  In fact, his mom is visiting the orphanage this week.  Andrew will likely be blessed with a brother soon, maybe TWO brothers or an entire sibling group. (Let’s just say mom has bunkbeds and a crib ready just in case)  So his mom and I wanted to make a fun and colorful bath for the new family members to share with Andrew but not TOO colorful and crazy. This new life will be an adjustment for everyone after all.

This is the before.

Above are the elements of the room as its coming together…mom painted the old wood cabinets and doors and we added ONE colorful piece of art and towels.

Art is from land of nod and towels from garnet hill.

She also found the cutest numbered hooks! The chevron shower curtain is from West Elm and of course the metal letters spelling BATH from Anthropologie. The mason jar soap dispenser is from Delta girl! The light is the Pullman light from Shades of Light..i just love this light!.  We planned to replace the mirrors but dad thought the big sheet of mirror would be good for multiple little faces crowding in the bath…good thinking Dad!

The paint colors are (1). Benjamin Moore’s Kendall Charcoal on cabinets, (2.) Martha Stewart’s Bedford Gray on walls from Home Depot, and (3) good ol’ Benjamin Moore Chelsea Gray on the doors!

So it may seem strange i am mentioning adoption and a kids bath in the same post but I am thrilled to be a part of this project…I can’t wait for these little people to meet their new family and crowd into this fun bath to brush their teeth and giggle..it may be a long road before those fun times but a mama and family have been preparing/nesting and waiting for the littles to arrive home! 

God bless you Gerbig family!

Anthropologie wallpaper

I’ve been wanting to re-paper by hall bath for sometime..its black and white toile and I love it but we’ve had it on TWO different homes over 13 years of marriage and well CAROLINE says its old lady and time to let go of the Waverly Country Life toile

Paeonia  from Anthropologie

Not that toile isnt classic and all and if you have this toile or any other toile in your house (I still have the red toile drapes BTW in the living room) I am not trying to make you feel bad.  Just sayin’..I have been on the lookout for new paper…and while there are multiple choices and pricepoints and options out there, isnt there just something, even if you are designer, decorator/stylist  or house person type, there is just SOMETHING about a well edited “here are a few papers” category of choices at ANTHROPOLOGIE no less.  {yes i know that was a lot of commas, trying to make a wallpaper point;)

And whattayouknow, its my BIRTHDAY soon?? So what do you think?

YEP. this is the one i think. BEGONIAS.  I love it, its on a kraft like paper!

My poor husband.  He is shaking his head and saying NO!

But baby, i provided the link and everything!

 

{note: reviews say this paper is very large scale which is exciting but concerning}
