Tour My Home - part 4 {Main bathroom}

This little space functions as our children's bathroom since we also have a master bathroom just around the corner. 

I think that I failed to mention that when we decided to build, sweet hubby allowed me to choose our floor plan.  My only restriction was to keep it around 1,500 square feet.  You can see the floor plan I chose by clicking here.  (Be sure to scroll down a little to see the home layout.)  We just printed out those plans and took them to an architect here, who then re-designed the plan using the metric system.  We made a few changes (such as the utility room, which I will explain better later, and the kitchen layout).  We also cut out all of the fancy porches and closed-in garage in order to concentrate our money on the necessary parts.  But you can see the basic idea by looking at the original floor plan we followed.   

Now, on to the bathroom...  I chose a beige-colored tile so that it would be easier to change the decor as the children grow...

(Below) And, here are the smaller details of our current decor...

Other than a few minor repairs, this room is basically done.  (Ahhhh.... it felt so good to just type that!)

The next part of this tour will take us to the master bedroom.  Until next time, friends!


  1. Wow.



    I say to each part of your house. It looks SO American! That is the great advantage to buildig your own house!

    I am so happy for you, Jolene. Everything looks so nice! Thank you for sharing.

    I hope to see it in person some day!

  2. So cute! I love the jungle theme and all the tile. Congratulations on being able to say, "Done!" on at least one room. Praying for you!

  3. Hehehehe!!! My kids have the Exact same bathroom set!! :) So cute! Loving the house!

  4. What a lovely jungle theme -- I'm certain the children enjoy that. And just as certain that making changes as interests changes will be simple. Reminds me -- I need to go clean mine!

  5. It looks great!! Makes me want to update my kids' (and guest) bathroom that's still circa 1977 ;-) I love the jungle critters!
