NC Rental – Upstairs Guest Bathroom First Look

This is the first room I will be showing you upstairs in our new home. We re not close to being done with the downstairs tour, but those rooms need some tweaking before I show you those rooms. So, I am going to show you our upstairs guest bathroom a week after we have moved in. We have literally not used this room one time. I hung two shower curtains, placed a plant stand in the room with the guest towels & that is about it. I am wanting to add some window treatments & some decor to the space to spice things up, & I’m sure this will all be changing, but my parents will be visiting next week & this will be there bathroom so for now it’s simple, sweet, & functional.

This is a view of the room from the upstairs hallway. The floors need lots of work, but since it’s a rental we will not be tackling that project. To be honest I don’t really mind, it gives it character & I think you look at a house differently when you are renting. The things like that don’t stress you out, but instead you can sit and find beauty in it all.

The tub is everything in this guest bathroom of course. It’s the main focal point of the room & rightly so!  Like I said above we haven’t used this beautiful tub yet, but I’ve always envisioned myself showering in one of these, & I think it was meant to be mine. I’m getting emotional about a tub, but if you know me that makes a lot of sense.

The green plant stand is one that I have had lying around forever & I’ve tried to sell many times, but for some reason it always sticks around. Of course like I said this bathroom got some temporary things for the time being and things will be changing, but this plant stand has a mind of it’s own & who knows it could be staying for the long haul! & the rugs? I’m thinking one long rug. What do you think?


What do you think of the little upstairs guest bathroom? It’s just another charmingly rustic little spot in this 1800′s home. What would you do in this space? Leave your suggestions in the comments below, find me on Facebook, or chat with me on Instagram! xx

  1. That shower makes me so happy! I agree on one larger rug. Everything is looking great!

    I love how simple it is and would not disturb that. I think you will need another towel bar and perhaps a piece of art somewhere like over the toilet. That’s it! I love the plant stand and the fact that it is green. :)

  3. It’s just beautiful!! I really love all the character in this new space – nothing like old house charm! :)

  4. So beautiful! I adore those floors too!!

  5. Have I said this yet? Maybe y’all should buy that wonderful house!

    I don’t know you (but I’m an avid follower!) but I totally started daydreaming as soon as I saw that tub! So I totally get the “emotional about a tub” thing, lol. Gorgeous room in its simplicity…

  7. Jessica R says:

    that’s my dream tub! I like everthing about the bathroom, just wondering though don’t your shower curtains get wet without the liner?

    • Hey Jessica! There is actually a clear liner there.. you just can’t see it :) & there is not one on the back curtain just yet, but like I said we haven’t used this bathroom yet & we will get one before the rents are here next week.

  10. I dream of a tub like that! Where did you get the towels and rugs? They’re so cute!

  11. You guys picked the most adorable rental ever! I’m loving seeing all the rooms. :)

  12. This really is the most perfectly imperfect rental I have ever seen. So charming and you are right when you rent you see it out of a totally different point of view. I really love it so so much.

  14. love the simplicity of the room. classic and just lovely. the green plant stand is just enough color, yes to that!

  15. JaneEllen says:

    Bathroom is so cute, love tub of course and pretty much everything except light over sink. It looks out of place, not of the style at all. A bigger longer rug would be terrific. The simplicity of that house and the bathroom is warming. Happy weekend

  16. Do you know what the paint color is? It looks warm without to much gold value.

  17. This is so gorgeous! That tub! The gold! The little pop of emerald green! I even love the beat up floors, I think they add charm :)

  18. I have read so many posts about the blogger lovers but
    this paragraph is actually a nice article, keep it up.

  19. Hi! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay.
    I’m definitely enjoying your blog and look forward to new posts.
