interiors & styling: A Peek Into A Budget E-Design Bathroom

Lately I’ve had the opportunity to work with some really fun e-design clients. I thought it would be fun to share a project from time to time! Click through to see details of a beautiful, budget bathroom I helped one of my Canadian clients with.


Quite a transformation, right?! To give you a bit of a backstory… the homeowners have a bungalow that was built in the early 60s. They had a clear vision and wanted to DIY their renovation (they’re super handy!), bringing it back to the times, modernizing it and making it more functional. They already had a great start, but needed another set of eyes to transform the main bath. They already had settled on the vanity, but asked for help in regards to tile, lighting, a mirror, and accessories. I was extremely flattered to learn their inspiration behind the space was my old bathroom in our Ohio home.

It turned out really well and their craftsmanship certainly exceeded my expectations! Here’s a glimpse at some of the options I gave them to decide on. As I mentioned, they were on a strict budget, but I don’t think we compromised the aesthetic at all.

Once they had decided, we then added textiles and accessories to the plan. They landed on Option 2 because it made the most sense with their budget and initial vision. The homeowners also felt comfortable installing a more intricate tile pattern, so we also revised the tile to a herringbone pattern as opposed to running bond. Here’s a look at the revised plan…

01: round mirror // 02: wall sconces // 03: stripe shower curtain // 04: bud vase // 05: faucet // 06: sink + vanity // 07: wall tile // 08: turkish towels // 09: dipped dyed stool // 10: woven bath mat // 11: floor tile // 12: soaking tub

You’ll notice we also added luxe textiles- turkish towels, a traditional shower curtain, and a neutral rug, as well as a small dipped dyed stool. The accessories help balance the space and add a little interest to a modern, minimal bath.

What do you guys think of the finished product? Didn’t they do a phenomenal job?! This project proves that you don’t have to have a mega budget to get a nice, clean look.

E-design is a cost effective way to get design assistance, but still be in control of your own project. Basically everything is easily accessible (we even take that into consideration for international clients), and simple to do on your own time. To quickly summarize the process, we tackle the issues at hand and provide the client with an itemized list of items, ideas, renderings, and floor plans- all within the given budget.

Right now, I’m working on three fun, really different spaces of all different scaled projects- a complete kitchen renovation, a shared nursery, and an entire home. E-Design is really want the client wants it to be. Whether you’re looking to tackle a full-blown reno or just need another set of eyes, it’s all totally custom. On the other end of the spectrum, I also work with local clients on full-service projects. From managing contractors, designing from start to finish, and styling at the very end- I enjoy the process so much. You’ve probably noticed behind-the-scenes footage on Instagram stories of a kitchen reno I’ve been helping a young couple with. Regardless the project, I feel lucky to assist so many amazing people!

Would you guys like to see more client projects in the future? I don’t share them as often as I probably should!

*Huge thank you to my Canadian clients for sending me images of the finished project and allowing me to share it with you guys!
