I unveiled my floor plan sketch for our downstairs divided bath:
There are three – 30″wide doors on my plan,
+ I discussed two of them at length (L + middle).
The third + final door — to the far right —
leads from the powder room to a small hallway adjacent to the kitchen.
Since our powder room is window-less,
I want the door into said-same to contain a window, like these:
I’m not a fan of that cutesie curtain, but I do love the raw wood
+ that charming porcelain doorknob.
Also loving that free standing tub charmer!
To-do list: frost some glass + find some window decals.

NOW, moving on to the flooring for these bathrooms o’ ours:
Since they’re next to the kitchen,
I toyed with the idea of just continuing that tile throughout, for “flow”.
Can’t do that, though. Here’s why:
I am obsessed with what I call “flower tile” bathroom floors.
This one in dark blue might be the most perfect bathroom floor, EVER.
Is it a coincidence that I found this charming vintage ring so appealing
+ persuaded G.O. to get it for me?
Anyway, back to floors.
Most often, my beloveds have a light background, like this,
+ I think that’s what we’ll do:
Let’s face it.
If I’ve learned anything from my years of serial re-doing
if I’m obsessed about a design feature,
I won’t be happy with anything else.
So a flower tile bathroom floor, it is!
While this ^^ isn’t technically a flower, it’s close,
+ it’s very pretty!

Next up: bathtubs.
Since bathtubs are DULL . . .
unless we’re talking freestanding, which WE are not, sadly . . .
I usually just make G.O. pick one.
All I ask is that it be plain, to go with my plain Jane style.
All things bathtub at Kay’s house may have taken a turn.
I’m obsessing again!
If you’ve gotta have a boring tub, why not trick it out with tile?
Am I right?
Or maybe even better (+ easier for G.O.),
how about some equally-charming bead board?
The Pinterest pin on which I saw this adorable-ness had a caption,
“It’s easier than you think!”
Of course, I pointed out said-same to G.O. when I showed him the idea.
Of course, within seconds, he’d nixed the idea, as ALWAYS.
So stay tuned, as ALWAYS!

Love the free standing tub. Had a claw foot tub upstairs in the house on Main Street. Didn’t appreciate it at the time. Re-did G’s bathroom last year. Got rid of the tub and put in a large shower with granite walls & floor & smokey shower doors. Love it……love it…….love it!!!
