Our Favorite Bathrooms {bathroom inspiration} | 11 Magnolia Lane

If you caught Part 1 of the bathroom renovation that Amy is sharing with us {see it here}, then you’ll understand why we’ve got bathrooms on the brain right now.  Her parents’ new bathroom is sure to be a stunner with all that gorgeous marble:

Since Amy and I have lived in quite a few houses over the years, we’ve shared quite a collection of bathrooms on the blog.  Here are some of our favorites:

Master bathroom in browns and grays | 11 Magnolia Lane

Our previous home here in North Carolina had one of my favorite bathrooms ever, with a huge steam shower and plenty of cabinet space.  {see more here}

Christmas 2017 bathroom

Our current home is less than half the size; we’re down to two baths instead of four, so the powder room is also shared by my kids.  They do a really good job of keeping it clean, though. {see more here}

Amy and her family are currently living in a short-term rental, but this is the master bathroom in their previous (just-sold) house.  They did a mini-makeover on this room {see it here} which involved pulling down a huge builder grade mirror and replacing it with two separate mirrors.  It makes a huge difference!

Spa-like bathroom in aqua and grey | 11 Magnolia Lane

Our military quarters in Savannah had a mini-bathroom-makeover (mostly because we weren’t allowed to do anything but paint), but we still made it into a relaxing space {more here}.

Amy’s guest bathroom (aka my bathroom when I visit) is one of my favorites (I love light colors and marble in bathrooms!).  See it all {here}.

Our Nashville house’s master bathroom got quite a makeover; I still miss that space! {see it here}

Easy updates to a builder grade small powder room. Add temporary wallpaper, spray paint a mirror and build in a shelf. Huge impact for small $..

Powder rooms get some of the love around here, too.  Amy’s got a wallpaper update and a new mirror as part of the One Room Challenge {see it here}.

This post on our powder room in our Savannah house is a blast from the past.  I used wrapping paper and spray adhesive to dress up those cabinet doors {more here}.

Back in the day when bead board was hugely popular, I added it to the powder room of our Nashville house {here}.

Last but not least, here are a few of the kid-themed bathrooms we’ve shared over the years.

My daughter’s aqua and coral bathroom in our Savannah house was all hers, so we went a little wild with the colors and it turned into such a cheerful space. {see it here}

Amy used a gray and yellow color scheme for her kids’ shared bathroom. {more here}

I also used yellow in the kids’ bath in our Nashville house (it’s always a good color choice when you have boys and girls sharing a space).  {see it here}

Boys red white blue nautical bathroom

Last but not least, Terry’s two boys shared this nautical-themed red, white, and blue bathroom back in the day.  I love the crispness of the colors!  {more here}

Since Amy and I are both in new homes, there will be more to see soon, I’m sure, plus she’ll have Part 2 of her parents’ bathroom renovation in just a few days.

Thanks for stopping by~

    So much gorgeousness!
    We are redoing our kids’ bath, also replacing the large builder-grade mirror with a smaller, ornate mirror. However, the light box is not centered over the sink. It’s about 3-4″ too much to the right. Any ideas how can I make this aesthetically pleasing?

    • The first thing I would do is check to see if you can move the box over a bit. I’ve moved a few electrical boxes in my time and it’s not that big of a job. The second thing you might do is find a longer fixture that allows you to mount it in the center without actually having to move the box. That’s so annoying–good luck!

  2. Bathrooms are one of those spaces that you don’t HAVE to break the bank to change the look. A little paint, new towels and a few accessories really can make a big difference in the look and feel of the room. I know not everyone can afford a complete overhaul. Great ideas!

    • Yes–and that’s what we’ve done most of the time for just that reason. Cosmetic changes make an amazing difference, don’t they?

  3. It was great going down memory lane with you two….Love that marble!! You two have always made such beautiful improvements to the homes you have lived in.

    • Thanks, Shirley! I’ve seen a few photos of the finished bathroom and can’t wait for Amy to share it this weekend. It’s beautiful!

  4. It was nice visiting your post. So much lovely. It’s been always an important matter to decorate a bathroom well. Little tips & tricks always does a great job. Thanks for sharing. keep it up.
