Okay, lets not even talk about how overdue this post is but thank you so much to you girls that kept messaging me about posting my guest bathroom update! You may remember I shared Our Master Bathroom Remodel earlier this year and am so sorry I have completely lagged with sharing these Guest Bathroom pics with you girls. It was partly delayed because I searched forever but could not find the before shots that I took (I think they were on my old iPhone and did not save;( but none the less here are some shots of our finished guest bathroom and some super exciting news (at the end of the post!)….
So similar to our Master Bathroom we wanted something clean, crisp and simple. We used the same flooring and Calacatta Marble as we did in our Master. The flooring is actually a tile that looks like wood and I love the gray color. A lot of you have asked about it and we are happy with it so far. I will say it can be a little “colder” than traditional wood flooring because it’s tile but definitely not a deal breaker. If you’re looking into this option we are really loving it so far.
We went a little over budget on the Master Bathroom so for the Guest Bathroom we tried to stick to the necessities. Flooring, a new countertop, new tile in the shower/bath and new hardware were a must. The counter tops and shower in our guest bathroom before were just those (not so cute) standard square white tiles. Adding the new countertops made a HUGE difference!
I would have also loved to rip out the mirrors and put something else in but a few years ago we did this grasscloth wall paper (this one is by Ralph Lauren) and it was going to be a nightmare to take down the mirrors and try to fix the wall paper after so we just them as is.

P.S. this pic is bothering me because I couldn’t get these damn towels straight for the life of me 😉 and every time I see a set of towels that are uneven I think about that movie “Sleeping with an Enemy” lol (anyone else?!)
The light fixture (from Pottery Barn) and all the Crown Molding were done years ago
For the shower/bath we just updated the subway tile to this rectangular version that were a little larger. I wanted to keep it pretty simple and then go a little more dramatic with an oversized shower box and some killer hardware.
The paint color is a bit more gray in person but I LOVE how this color is gray but still slightly warm. We have this color pretty much throughout our entire house because we love it so much. It’s Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore. If you’re looking for a neutral color definitely swatch this one!
Ugh how pretty is this hardware?! (from Restoration Hardware)
I am so happy with how our oversized shower box turned out. We used the left over Calacatta Marble from our countertops to make the frame of it and opted for different shelf heights for all my products. (ps it does NOT look quite this organized anymore 😉
and lastly I went with something a little different than I normally would for the sink but am so in love with this set! ( also from Restoration Hardware)
Also we have some super exciting news ….WE ARE MOVING!!! We’re still going to be in Orange County but moving closer to the beach! I shared this news with my SnapChat fam last month and have been sharing some sneak peeks of meetings, floor plans etc on there as well and we’re just SO excited! We had been on the hunt for the perfect place literally for the last two years and found nothing that was even close to being “it” so we retired the search and decided to stay put (hence the remodels on the bathrooms). About 4-5 months ago my girlfriend sent me a link to a property that we immediately fell in love with. It was a little smaller than we had hoped for but we didn’t care, we looooved it. We were so bummed when we didn’t end up getting it but it turned out for the best because we decided to hire the architect that built that home and are now building our home from scratch! So we bought a tear down a few months ago and have already submitted our plans and hope to break ground in a couple months!!! Life is CRAZY busier now than ever before and I know this process is going to be bananas while juggling everything else but I can’t wait to build our dream home that our little ones will grow up in! I definitely plan on sharing this whole process with you girls too. So wish us luck! ;))
If you follow along on PINTEREST you probably noticed I have been pinning a TON of inspo on my FOR THE HOME board. If you want to see the direction were going in with our new build you can follow my FOREVER HOME board. I’ve pinned tons of things I’m loving for our new place!
