I’m up north for this Family Day long weekend and very excited to have FOUR days to take things a little slower. There’s something about being at our country home (MUCH less ostentatious than it sounds : ) that relaxes me in a way that nothing else can.
It is for this reason that I think I enjoy designing weekend homes so much. They represent everything we work so hard for – quality family time, being outdoors, great food & drink, comfort, low-key gatherings, and walls with no clocks.
These homes don’t have to cost a fortune and they certainly don’t need to cost a fortune to transform. This will be the first of a series of blogs about creating great rooms on a budget. The first one is creating a farmhouse bathroom that will be both beautiful and functional (and not break the bank!).
Farmhouse bathrooms can vary greatly in design but as a general rule they are much simpler in design and created with low maintenance materials. Because of this it is much easier to create this look on a tight budget.
Gazette Vanity $670, Home Depot. Kingston Brass Faucet $150, Home Depot. Tork Mirror $229, CB2. Princeton Sconce $244, Schoolhouse Electric. Brass Towel Bar $90, Schoolhouse Electric. Fairview Knob $18/each, Schoolhouse Electric. Painterly Stripe Shower Curtain $54, Schoolhouse Electric. Imperfect Piazza Petite Cement Tiles $10.67 sqft, Villa Lagoon. Dalton White Tile 6x6 $2 sqft, Home Depot. Pegasus Marble Vanity Top $514, Home Depot.
Although you could definitely go even more budgetI think this is a good compromise between some well priced foundation pieces and some great splurges.
