My White Bathroom

Today I am joining Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses

for White Wednesday. She has issued a challenge for those of us who prefer color in our homes to flaunt a little white. 
Thank you Rhondi for hosting this event.


While I do prefer color in most of my rooms, my bathroom is decorated in shades of white.

This tile was the inspiration for the room.

The walls were faux painted in tones that match the tiles.  The lighter paint has a pearly look.

It is often mistaken for wallpaper.

The magnolia scent from this potpourri is fresh & light.

Even though there isn't a lot of color in this room, I was still able to incorporate some of my favorite things ~ like birds & cherubs.

Sweet cherubs sitting at the edge of the tub.

Birds & just a touch of blue.

The white provides a peaceful, calming atmosphere.

Perfect for soaking in the tub and a nice place to start and end my day.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit me on White Wednesday.


  1. What a beautiful bath, Kim!!! I love that tile, your wall treatment and that round soap! So, so pretty!


  2. Kim, your bathroom is so elegant! I cannot figure out how they did the wall! But I'm not a great wall painter unless it can be done with a roller and quickly:)
    Very nice. And you've managed to get in some little collectibles you have a knack for finding. Love the elves! Nicely done...

  3. Oh how pretty, Kim! Love the wall treatment and the beautiful tiles. Well, it's really just like a dream and should be featured in BHG!

  4. Kim, I'm glad you stopped by! And now I have found you too. Beautiful white... and adding touches of soft blue give such interest to this serene sancturary!
    You have found great ballance between the WHITE hot trend and keeping your own style.

  5. I like lots of color too but white can be beautiful also as you have shown here. Your bathroom is oh so pretty!! I love it all!

  6. So pretty. And clean. How do you keep everyone from using your pretty soap? Just wonderful.

  7. Hi Kim
    I'm glad to see you took up the challenge. Your white bathroom is lovely. Are those walls stencilled? You're right, it does look like wallpaper!
    Hugs, Rhondi

  8. I feel like I just opened a House Beautiful magazine featuring white bathrooms. You certainly did create a relaxing and peaceful looking room. The white tiles are what I would have chosen, and you built around them in a perfect way. Each of your simple yet elegant touches adds so much. I could almost smell the magnolia. Thank you for sharing this with us. You are skilled in decorating too.

  9. Your bathroom is beautiful! I love the little vignettes you've created, especially the little birds in the nest with the basket and cherub. So very sweet! Have a great day! :) Tammy

    You've done a great job with that room, Kim.

  12. This is so beautiful! I can only imagine how relaxing it would be to take a bath there... *sigh*

  13. Even the reflection in your mirror is beautiful! So lovely!

  14. What beauty! I love your beautiful home! ♥

  15. Your bathroom is so lovely and serene! I did think it was wallpaper, what a great job you did painting! It's all so pretty, if I had a bath like that I'd have to take a soothing bubble bath every night!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today and leaving such a nice comment!

  18. What a beautiful bath, Kim! I love how you decorated it. So so pretty!


  19. She's right. White amidst color can be so serene and beautiful. I love your white accents!

  20. Kim,

    Your bathroom is simply lovely. I love all the white touches. White makes everything look so fragile.

    I'm so glad your family enjoyed the Pineapple Sweet & Sour chicken.


  21. Kim,
    Your faux painted walls are simply stunning. I would have taken them for wallpaper for sure. Did you do your walls yourself? Love all the cherubs around the tub, the candle holder. I can never resist a cherub. Beautiful bathroom.

  22. What a lovely bath! It is beautiful, serene and elegant. I especially love that tile. = )


  23. Everything is just perfect, Kim ... and oh, so elegant!
