Townhouse Powder Room Update {and City Print Giveaway!}

Powder Bath Progress

Hi! It’s Kylee here today! I know I’m long overdue with an update on our move to the townhouse, but between working, taking care of Bella and unpacking boxes, getting settled has taken a bit longer than I expected. The last time we moved I’m pretty sure we didn’t have nearly this much stuff!

We also had a little incident trying to get our old leather sofas up the narrow staircase to our second floor living room. I was kind of hoping to use that as an excuse for buying a new sofa, but my husband Lance was determined to salvage them. So, he came up with a plan to hoist the bulky sofa up over our balcony and into the sliding doors on the second floor of our townhouse. Good times. I have all the ridiculous photos to prove it, so I’ll share that tale and how it all turned out in my next update.

Meanwhile, I thought I would share a quick update to our main floor powder room! This tiny little bathroom is perfect for guests. Can you believe we have three and a half bathrooms in our tiny townhouse? We do! Our last place was a studio apartment with no separate bedroom and only one bathroom so we feel like we are living the life here!

I have been looking forward to updating this little bathroom ever since we bought the house! It is so fun having so many rooms to decorate. I really wanted to give it a personal touch as well as make it feel pretty and welcoming for guests. Eventually we may decide to do something crazy like install wallpaper or, dare I say it, stencil the walls…but for now we are loving these simple updates!

Gray Powder Bathroom Update

In a powder bath it doesn’t take a lot to make it feel finished, which means even simple updates make a big difference. I started by adding a fresh hand towel, a pretty soap dispenser, and a small bouquet of flowers.

Bathroom Update - Roses in Blue Vases

I’ve collected blue glass vases for awhile now, I think they look so sweet with these mini pink roses in them.

City Prints - Albie Designs Portland and Seattle Artwork

I couldn’t wait to get art on the walls, but I knew I didn’t want just any art. I really wanted artwork that has personal meaning behind it. When I found Kim at Albie Designs on Etsy, I loved the entire collection of her city prints and knew I needed some in my house! My husband and I grew up in Portland, and we now call Seattle our home, so artwork that represents those cities is very meaningful to us!

Aren’t they fun?
