OUR BATHROOM REVEAL

I’m so excited to reveal our Palm Springs inspired bathroom to you all!

Recently, I realized that of all the photos I’ve posted under #casadegloob, I’ve never once shared our bathroom. One reason is that it’s the smallest bathroom I’ve ever known (it measures roughly 4′ x 5.5′), so space wise there isn’t much to share. The other reason is that I never seemed to finish decorating it, again because there isn’t room to do much in there.

Motivated by my editorial calendar and the impending due date of this post, I got my act together and finally finished the bathroom! Read on to get all the details about how we maximized this pint-sized space.

If we owned our apartment, wallpaper would have been a must in this room. As an alternative, I thought it would be cool to find a shower curtain that resembles a wallpaper I would have chosen to get the same effect but in a rental-friendly capacity. This shower curtain is from society6.com.

Our bathroom came with minimal storage space, being that the sink resembles that of a doll house. Adding additional storage was a must, and we both fell in love with this mint green, three tiered shelf from Urban Outfitters. Just like the yellow bookcase in our bedroom and mint green console in our living room, adding a practical piece in a fun color is an easy way to add personality to a room. Unfortunately ours is no longer available, but this one from Walmart is a nice alternative!

To bring some life into the bathroom, I wanted to add a fun plant and this little aloe won my heart. Not only does it pull together the Palm Spring vibe in this room, it’s also practical to keep near our other first aid supplies, since it can be used to help heal any major cuts or burns.

The match books are just three of many from my collection and they’re all restaurants here in New York City. The shell is a souvenir from the beach–a nod to my obsession with collecting shells whenever I can. The lucite tray corrals these items together, creating an easy vignette. You can find this and other size lucite trays at The Container Store.

Up until three weeks ago, the frame of our medicine cabinet was matte black. While the color wasn’t all that offensive, I never understood why someone chose such a dark color for a white tiled bathroom. I finally bit the bullet and painted it white to match the rest of the bathroom. Added bonus: it makes this  little corner feel slightly bigger.

Our toothbrush holder and soap dispenser are also from The Container Store.

Hooks on the back of the door were a must (ours here) and I added the fuchsia hand towels from my last apartment (similar here) for a bright pop of color.

This pair of prints used to hang above our bed, until we eventually replaced them with this wall hanging and later our Moroccan wedding blanket. They sat on the floor for months until I realized they would be the perfect finishing touch for the bathroom. (If you caught my Instagram story on Sunday, you saw my trick for hanging them up.)

These prints are from an installation by Feliz Gonzalez-Torres that Sam and I saw at the de la Cruz art gallery in Miami many years ago. I always found the message “Somewhere better than this place.” “Nowhere better than this place.” to be incredibly poignant for displaying in our humble abode.

And that’s it! Our small yet mighty bathroom. For the first time since we moved into #casadegloob, I finally find this small space a refuge. A room that I’m actually proud of. Apparently, a well-decorated bathroom–no matter the size–goes a long way.

  • Finished projects from yesterday’s pom pom workshop at @shopthestreet!! I am BEYOND obsessed with how these pom pom bag charm / keychains came out!! We switched up our usual workshop this time to focus JUST on poms and added simple clips instead of braided loops which allowed our crafters to really focus their time on making poms. 💥 Head to my last post to see how they styled their charms on their bags!!! SO STINKING CUTE. 🤩⠀
⠀
While we’re on the subject of projects, is there anything you’re itching to learn how to make, pom-tassel related or otherwise?! I’d love to know what you all want to learn online and at workshops!! Leave your thoughts in the comments below 🙌🏼⠀
