Clark Crib: A Batman Bathroom

While I’m honestly not too much into kitschy character home decor, Cash has always had a thing for Batman, he gets that from James. To give the boys something a little fun and personalization when it comes to their own spaces, I thought allowing a little fun in their bathroom would be a great way to do it. I should note that we do have a separate bathroom downstairs for guests, so this bathroom is completely just for the boys!

While I still need to find a few more odds and ends for the countertops, here’s what we did for an adorable and only slighty kitschy Batman bathroom! So far we have this cute striped toothbrush cup and these funny Little Tikes Joker’s (need to find the Batmobile one obvs haha)

I started with this really cool Black Batman Symbol shower curtain, it’s nice and easy to wash, so with black shower curtain rings, it fit a superhero bathroom perfectly. I also added a black rug by the sink to make it a little more cozy.

Since the bathroom is much smaller, and really isn’t being used that much right now, we didn’t need to add a bunch of frills and space saving items yet. The black hand towels match the room perfectly and were SO cheap for the quality!

 

Above the towel rack I finished off the bathroom decor with a mini-gallery arrangement. A lot of these pieces I just designed on PicMonkey then sent to the Walgreens Photo Lab online and printed out in different sizes. To keep it cohesive I made sure each piece had a black frame, and there’s no more than the width of my hand between each picture.

Pretty basic stuff over here in the boy’s Batman bathroom, but sometimes it’s the simple ideas that kid’s enjoy the most. I’d also rather put my money into spaces that get a ton of use than do-it-up like crazy in their bathroom at this point. What do you think!?

Spring Patio Ready

Since moving to this new home in Celebration, I’ve gotten into this minor obsession with home decor. When we moved we decided it was best to start with a clean slate all around, so we got rid of a lot of our old things. Knowing the kind of space I was working with, and with the help of my super interiorly superior Mother, I began to slowly but surely piece together what would become the elements for my dream home.

 

The Patio is one of my favorite spaces, especially around this time of year. It’s always cool, breezy and in the mid 70’s in the evening, so I really like to sit outside, light some candles, and get some blogging done at the end of a long day with the boys. For this patio my inspiration was modern bohemian and my most important element was comfortable chairs.

Patio chairs can say a lot about your personality, and while I love them in other people’s homes, Brown Wicker furniture with red/terra cotta cushions just isn’t my aesthetic. I found this set of two extremely soft and comfortable black rope chairs with a modern design and plush gray cushions, and basically designed the rest of the patio around them.

Since we got rid of a lot of our “knick-knacks”, a lot of our spaces are dangling on the minimalist line, but I like that everything serves a function and there’s no “junk”. The black and white striped rug really reflected to me that sense of modern minimalism and clean lines with an edge.

Rather than purchasing pricey outdoor end tables, I grabbed two $30 planter stands from Target to serve as end tables for us to set our beverages and candles on. They work really well in the space, and the iron legs reflect that clean look we were going for.

As far as accents go, I wanted the space to not be cluttered, but wanted to incorporate some fun and functional pieces. I grabbed these two matching gold lanterns which are perfect when lit at nighttime outdoors, and a simple black/white squiggly lined planter pot, I haven’t yet committed to which plant I’m going to try to grow yet though, so leave me some suggestions if you have a green thumb.

Being that our patio sits in an open place and is visible from the street to several tourists that come through the area, I wanted it to stand out and reflect the fun personality that embodies our family. This space makes me so happy.

The two pack of my specific chairs is only sold in select stores, but I’ve linked similar chairs and the big patio sets of my specific set! <3
