Happy Thursday, friends! We can’t believe it’s almost the weekend already.
We love the simple, chic look of this oversized subway tile,
And, complete with dark grout, this tile makes for a very stylish shower.
Dark colors add a new dimension.
Sleek in silver,
Or brilliant in brass, the right hardware is the perfect accent for these simple tiles with big personality.
This marble subway tile is positively swoon worthy! It’s a luxe take on a trend we love.
But who says subway tile should just be limited to the shower? Subway tile in this entire bathroom makes such a statement.
Forget going to the groomer. Subway tile is even the perfect material for a dog shower! Now this is a pampered pooch!

Happy New Year, sweet friends! Bathrooms are perhaps the most utilitarian rooms in the house
But that doesn’t mean they can’t also be the most beautiful
After all, the room we spend a good portion of the moments right before waking and sleeping should be somewhere we feel relaxed, invigorated and totally calm.
We’ll admit that we can get pretty excited over any element in the bathroom.
Sinks that look as much like jewelry as somewhere to wash your hands are always welcome in one of our rooms.
And — it is the new year after all — if it is gorgeously, fantastically organized then we really can’t stop dreaming of it!
(See all those glass canisters… That’s what we’re talking about!)
When space allows, decorative details that make the bath feel as accessorized and beautiful as the rest of the house are a must! This beautiful lamp and silver tray are inspiring us!
Speaking of… Of all the elements that combine to make a gorgeous bathroom, the bathtub is by far our favorite!
Tub or no tub, big bath or tiny, one, simple thing that we can all do to make our baths feel light, luscious and beautifully designed is keep a tiny (or big!) vase full of fresh stems right on the vanity.
When we redid our master bath in our Beaufort, NC house a huge, cast-iron soaking tub was the first thing we chose.
The carpenters joked that if there was a natural disaster we should stand on the first floor under the tub because the floor had been reinforced so heavily.
Although it’s not so much of a joke now because, in the wake of Hurricane Florence, we learned what can happen when you build a beautiful wooden enclosure around a cast-iron tub surrounded by windows. And the windows leak. Let’s just say ew.
We weren’t planning on a major house renovation just five years after the first one, but you can’t predict the weather, as they say.
And master bathroom, take two, is going to have a more breathable bathing solution, so we don’t find ourselves in this mess again.
“My good blogger friend, Kristy Harvey just released her third book Slightly South of Simple…New York Times Bestselling Author Elin Hilderbrand says Kristy is the “Next Major Voice in Southern Fiction…and in my opinion, Kristy is this generation’s Pat Conroy.”
