I think this is the only room in the new house you haven’t seen yet. (However, I haven’t shared the guest quarters yet, so I’m still a woman of mystery for a least a few more weeks, ha. )
So this is the bathroom that my girls share. And to answer your question, two girls sharing one bath can sometimes be a hazard, but oddly enough this works in our family.
Pointing out some of the things we did in here, the hex tile was something I really wanted since it is in keeping with the historic neighborhood. We installed 36 inch countertops instead of the old standard 30 inch ones. The taller counter-tops just make sense. The tiles in the tub are simple white subway tiles.
I selected white river granite for the counters here, which is the same granite we used in the kitchen and other bathrooms. You can see those other rooms here. (The laundry room is different.)
Did you notice the super cool mirrors? Did you guess where they are from? Ballard Designs (not a sponsored post)! I love the cute birdie. I asked on our FB page if I should go with or without the birds since they are removable. Well as you might guess, some said ‘yes’ and some said ‘no’. I decided to split the difference, so I used only one of them.
There’s a secret hiding here, but I’ll have to show it to you another time, because I forgot to get a photo before it got dark. It’s a good one too. I will show you how I handled the electronics so they are accessible but don’t end up in a mess on the counter.
The carpenter added this nice cabinetry on the front of the tub too. I like it a lot. We also went with the taller toilets. I know I don’t like talking about them, but there you have it. I’m afraid I’m quite Victorian when it comes to bathroom talk. Oh yeah, I’m weird that way. One time my phone fell in the toilet and I had to decide whether or not it was worth it to fish it out. Personally I would like to get off this topic as quickly as possible, but I know you are going to ask, so yes I did get it out. But after that it never worked right. It was a Razor (long time ago) and some of the buttons wouldn’t work any more. So if your number had a ‘5’ or a ‘7’ in it, I couldn’t call you. I was late to my daughter’s basketball game that day and I couldn’t call her to tell her why. Well that is my embarrassing story for the week. I will try not to have another one for at least 7 days.
Anita these are awesome mirrors if I were you I’d leave the birds. To me birds bring something natural into a room and they add a feminine touch too. I’ve loved these mirrors for along time. Love the ruffled shower curtain !
It’s all beautiful….love the higher cabinets and love the idea of the cabinetry on the bathtub is genius! Always enjoy your site. Keep up the good work. Can’t wait to see how you hid the electronics. I’m tired of cords everywhere! Thanks for the inspiration.

Very nice….can’t wait to see the electronics storage surprise…
Thanks for sharing the girl’s bath! I love that the mirrors are not built in as cabinets and how the mirror color harmonizes with the river granite counter tops. The use of just one bird is what I would have done, as well, so as to not look so symmetrical, which makes the bird look more natural as it would occur in nature. As for the secret you are holding back–could it be glow-in-the-dark tile grout that makes the floor look like a disco dance floor when the lights are out?!?
Peggy Thal says
Beautiful bathroom! The bird does it for me. Makes it interesting. Think you need two. Really like the higher sink and toilet. We have that and it so much better for tall people. Bet your girls love it!
Lovely bathroom for your girls. Perfect “girlie” shower curtain! Like you I used taller cabinetry in the bath and have been pleased that I did for years. Hex tiles are a favorite of mine too and wish I had them. Mirrors are beautiful and only one bird looks just right. Looking forward to the surprise fix regarding appliance cords because I have not been able to concur that problem.
Beautiful bath… two questions; (1) talk about the print between the mirrors – where did it come from and is it one print? (2) and where did the shower curtain come from.
Love the mirrors – love the bird. Also love the cabinetry on the tub.
I bought the print at the Dallas market (wholesale.) The shower curtain, I can’t remember, I bought it so long ago. If you google ruffled shower curtain, I think you will find some options.

My question is regarding your bed covering that is featured in Joss & Main.
It looks like the bed that it is on is a full or queen. My daughter’s bed is a queen but when I measure from side to side, the measurements listed will not reach to the floor. It’s not even a little off. The measurements would make the bedspread way too short. I would like to buy it, but I have bought from Joss & Main before and most of the time, items are not returnable. If you could shed any light on the measurements of the bedspread for a queen sized bed, that would be great. I don’t think the look would be as attractive with a bed skirt. It is beautiful the way it is. Thanks Love your look.
Debbie, I don’t have any more information on the bedspread. So sorry. 🙁 I do think it would look find with a lacy white bed skirt under it or with a cream or slightly darker bedskirt, but that is just my opinion. I often use 2 bed skirts, when I want a patterned one, but it is two short.

What a beautiful bathroom the girls have! A jetted tub??? WOW! LOVE the mirrors (WITH the birds) and love, LOVE the print between them! Can’t wait to see how you did the electronics.

Beautiful bathroom Anita…I just love everything about it, from the mirrors to the gorgeous granite countertops….and hmm…could the electrical cord thing be in the cabinetry?…..I had an electrical outlet installed in one of the tall linen cabinets that are beside each one of my sinks for all of my “hair implements”…Have a wonderful weekend!
At Rivercrest Cottage says
love everything about this room. The little bird sets it off perfectly. After reading about your phone, I don’t feel so bad about losing my eye glasses in the toilet last week! I wear them on my head a lot and lost them leaning over to throw something in the trash can. That’s the story I’m sticking with anyway!
Cindy K says
Pretty room…love the toilet talk, it made me laugh.
It all looks great but I would dispose of the Birds. I feel about Birds probably the same as you feel about Toilets. My Favorite has to be the Carpentry in front of the Tub! That is a genius look and idea!
Have a Great Week!
Love, love the bathroom….great job. Happy Sunday!!!
Sue M. says
Love how you have only the one mirror with the little bird, all the molding, the painting, and the glass door knob! It turned out so nice!
Love this bathroom in your new home, dear friend!!!
Unique and charming mirrors!
Sharing with your siblings is good for character building.
I still remember some of our best (and worst) times
were the ritual of washing the dinner dishes!
I often question today’s society of everyone having “their own” everything.
I think I’ve figured out your secret. . .
but, as you know. . .I’m very good at keeping secrets!!!
Jean from Georgia says
Love the entire room. As a child I had to share a bath with three brothers. There was a door to my bedroom an another door to their bedroom. Well, as you can imagine, they always locked me out of the bath – definitely poor character building in my home.
Anita, This I a beautiful bath. If I ever get new sinks and counters, I will go with the higher height too. Love the embarrassing story.
A pauley says
Love the elegant bath, and I like how the birdie adds a touch of whimsy!
Jeanette @ Creating a Life says
Such a pretty bathroom, and I love the birdie mirror!
Brandi @ Nest of Bliss says
What a gorgeous room! Everything about it is so dreamy. 🙂
Love the bathroom. Such a clean, classic look. I’d like to know where you got the rod for the shower curtain. Is it installed in the tile? It looks so finished…much nicer than others I’ve seen.
The rod is from Lowes. It’s nothing fancy.
Love the bathroom – it is gorgeous. I noticed the River White right away! I just put it in my kitchen. LOVE IT.
Susan H. says
Anita- you are so excellent at decorating, that’s why I follow you ! But you keep me in sticjes and smiles with your funny posts! Love it!
Cyndee Jones says
Thousands of cell phones have been dropped into toilets!! You’re human and those kinds of things happen to us “human types!”
Please keep up the good work on your blog, I enjoy each and every post! You have such beautiful taste and a real knack for styling a room!
Enjoy the rest of the week and have a good weekend!
