One Room Challenge:

Jack & Jill Guest Bath Week 7



Just to recap this happens twice a year, April/ October, the designers only have six weeks, from start to finish in order to complete a full room transformation.  Each week the guest designer’s will link their progress to the ORC host page Calling It Home (link here), and share their room’s progress. The best part you will be able to follow along with JENRON DESIGNS and all the participants progress just by clicking the ORC (link here). This season for the first time ever, the ORC has extended the REVEAL date to seven weeks, to help accommodate  our fellow designers in Texas, Florida and California effected by all horrific the hurricanes and fires (updated in WEEK 4). So now the final completion date and big reveal of our Jack and Jill Guest Bathroom makeover will be on Thursday, Nov. 16th!!!

Here are the before pictures, of my very plain, vanilla box bathroom. It had inadequate lighting, and no personality.  


Taking a Closer Look at the Detail’s 

I decided to leave all the writing portion of this post in the closer look at the details, and let the The Final Reveal pictures stand on there own. So, we will start from he ground up. I found these ultra plush Ralph Lauren bath mats at my local Home Goods. I loved the color and pattern as it envoked a serine spa feeling. They also matched the shower curtain I ordered from Bed Bath and Beyond perfectly.  I finished off these beautiful Barnwood Hooks (DIY LINK)  with some ultra plush robes from Pottery Barn, if you have not tried the robes from Pottery Barn do yourself a favor and try them. They are so soft and cuddly they make great holiday gifts for those “hard to buy for people” on your list.  I found these stylish Le Masion, Le Bain Bath Towels and WASH clothes at Home Goods. They were also the perfect color to match both the shower curtains and rugs. I really like to add in some personalized bath towels to my standard on hand all white collection. It makes the room feel more personalized and special for your guests.  It is not a secret that I love the look of a Mint Julep Cup, I think they have a unstated elegance to them and can work in any room. I found these sweet little Mint Julep candles online at a little wine company called IWA. I knew the minute I saw them that I just had to have them.  I put one in the toilet room and the other two on the sink area. 

Part of making a guest bath feel inviting and luxurious is having nice products to offer to your guest. I know those of you that read all my posts know I am a huge fan of LUSH and Jo Malone bath products, but I also really like the Barr-Co Products. Their cute down home packaging was the perfect look for this rustic spa bathroom and the smell of this Fir & Grapefruit Gift Set is so refreshing. 

On my inspiration board I had a large wicker hamper, which I think you need in every bathroom, to catch all the soiled towels, wash cloths and in this case robes. I found this really great hamper a my local Pier One. As you can see it is the perfect size to fit directly at the end of the vanity and can hold a week’s worth of linens. By far my best purchase for this room, because this is a true multi tasker. This basket can be useful anywhere, a bedroom closet or a laundry room. I even did a little organization under the sink. Lidded glass jars are added to hold cotton balls and q-tips. A basket of bath essentials in case your guest forgot something. Extra white Martex Everyday Towels from JC Penny’s.  You always want to make sure your guest have plenty on linens under the cabinet for the duration of their stay. I really like these towels since they are quite affordable, wash up really good, and alway keep their color, or in my case actually stay white, LOL. 

Whew, I am glad we got everything done and had a week to spare. Now I am spinning off into the Christmas Tree world to get the house ready for my favorite time of the year. Be sure to check back in to see our Christmas Home Tour to be released on December 1st. I guarantee you won’t want to miss it  ­čść
