There’s no doubt about it. We’re bathroom enthusiasts. Fun architectural details on the ceiling,
A fabulous view,
And, obviously, a huge bathtub
for curling up with a favorite book,
All come together to make a space that takes the simple parts of the day and makes them extraordinary.
Even bathrooms that aren’t big on space (obviously this doesn’t qualify as one of those!) can be big on style. And getting creative with the floor plan can make it all fit in. We love little touches that make a bathroom feel homier.
If you haven’t started the Peachtree Bluff Series yet, now is the perfect time! The first book in the series, Slightly South of Simple, has released in mass market paperback–and it’s #14 on the bestseller list! Pick it up at your favorite bookstore, local grocery store, drugstore or retail store

Good morning, chic readers! We hope you are having a great day. With Fourth of July right around the corner, it’s time for sandy feel, pool time and plenty of guests. All we know is that our showers are getting ready to work over time!
We do some of our best thinking in the shower. We don’t know if it’s the warm water or the quiet or the lack of multi-tasking but we always get the best ideas in there. But that’s just the beginning.
The shower is one of those places where function is really important. But when it can be this beautiful too, then the shower can quickly become a favorite spot in the house! Isn’t this shower door amazing?
A rain shower head is so calming and perfect for refreshing skin after a long day of fun in the sun. It can turn a simple shower into a spa-like experience! And who couldn’t use more of that?
Handheld shower heads are our new go-to, simply because they make cleaning the shower and bathtub an absolute breeze. With showers getting bigger and tilework more intricate, an easier clean is a must! Nothing makes it easier to reach those far-off shower corners where grime can accumulate.
This rustic bathroom ceiling juxtaposes beautifully with the marble tile to create a one-of-a-kind experience that is utterly chic.
From simple tile to luxurious marble, there’s the right shower for any decor and feel. And a garden seat is one of our favorite spots for stacking towels.
We love the chair in here and the extra storage under the sinks and basket for putting spare towels is a bonus! There never seem to be enough towels!
Marble tile in a herringbone pattern makes the shower fun and a little bit different, while a soaking tub is perfect for unwinding after a long day.
We used a simple subway tile in Little Will’s shower with a soft gray grout and love it! The color makes it easier to clean and in an old house it’s simple yet functional. The stool is his new favorite thing. Not only is it useful, but the teak is also beautiful and water resistant, which is a must in a bathroom.
But there’s no reason to stick to just one material. Mixing and matching for a totally custom look is so much fun.
With so many beautiful choices, it’s hard to pick a favorite. All we need now is one of those waterproof shower pads for writing down all our great ideas!
Thank you so much for stopping by Design Chic. We always love it when you do. Happy Monday!
