I live in a tiny apartment in the city and this is completely on purpose. After my {failed} back surgery, it became difficult for me to manage my larger home. I handed the keys over to my daughter and went on a hunt for a one bedroom apartment. I lived in it for 3 1/2 years but it was a little bit too small. So I set out to find a small but larger apartment and I’ve been here for almost 7 months now. During that time, I’ve been struggling with my bathroom decor or lack of it I should say. I really didn’t have any idea on how to style it because I’ve never had tile in my bathroom before. I didn’t know what would go with it or would look good. That is until I fell in love with the cute Quilted Northern® Characters: Little Miss Puffy Tail, Daddy Gator, & Sir Froggy. Thanks to these characters, after waking up Saturday, Alyssa and I headed to Kroger, fighting a storm unlike any I’ve ever driven in because I was determined that by the end of the weekend, my simple clean light bathroom refresh would be complete. I kept putting it off due to the weather but decided I was going to win the weather war I had going on. I’m glad I made the decision to go because my bathroom looks so much better. I basically stuck to the Sir Froggy decor, because I like minimal, modern, light, simple and clean.

Before photos: Here you go, my entire bathroom. It’s not entirely terrible, it’s bigger than my last one was.

I found everything I needed at Target to go with the theme I wanted which was to give it a nice clean refresh. I picked up some Quilted Northern® Mega Rolls while I was there because it’s something I don’t want to run out of. I depend on this toilet paper so much that one of the items I purchased, I did so with the Quilted Northern® Mega Rolls in mind. They’re so much larger than a normal roll of toilet paper (and last so much longer too) so I wanted something bigger to store them in.

Our shopping trip. This will give you an idea of some of the products I purchased.

One by one, I added my goodies to my bathroom. I just love how clean everything looks. I’ve been saying I needed to buy a liner every since I moved in but had yet to remember to do that. I finally purchased a nice heavy weight one and hung it up and now we have the option of a bath or shower. I bought some baskets to get organized because with a tiny bathroom, organized is key in making it look clean and I am one picky house cleaner. I selected a couple of wire baskets and a couple of other type baskets. I purchased a garbage can as well as a wooden organizer for my nail polish. I knew there wasn’t much I could do about hiding the tile floor so I bought a couple of rugs to throw down. One for every day use and an extra one for when I have company.

There are still a couple of things I’d like to purchase from Target to complete the look but I’m happy with the end results as they stand. It has inspired me to tackle my long hallway and jazz it up some with a clean modern refresh.
