An MC-inspired bathroom
April 21, 2021
Much like you inspire us, we hope that we inspire you, too!
Katey McFarlan, who writes the blog Chronicles of Frivolity, found the inspiration for her daughter Maxi’s bathroom in our Farmhouse, where she discovered the illustrious pink bathroom. You heard that right: pink patterned tiles on the walls and a tub decorated in our Pink Honeymoon ceramic pattern.
Katey saw the bathroom on a trip to our campus in Aurora, New York, and knew it was perfect for her daughter’s bathroom at home. That space was a blank canvas with white walls, a black and white tiled floor, and a single-sink cabinet with a black countertop. “I knew that I wanted to add in those pink and white details to the walls, while incorporating the classic black and white check MC is so known for,” Katey said.
First, Katey added a shot of pink by hanging wallpaper featuring a pattern of diagonal pink ribbon with interlocking bows and knots. Next, our dimensional Courtly Check butterflies were hung on the walls. Katey loves their whimsy, as well as their extra meaning. “I love decor that tells a story. And to me the butterflies symbolize that even the mundane parts of parenting (baths, teeth brushing, etc.) lead to them learning to be independent and spreading their wings one day.” She also added our Poppy and Monarch Butterfly Shadow Boxes.
From there, Katey incorporated more of our classic Courtly Checks, adding a shower curtain and switching out the cabinet’s existing hardware with our ceramic knobs. The finishing touches were a few more pieces of Courtly Check enamelware on the counter, a Zig Zag Waste Bin, and our plush pink Hollyhock bath rug.
Katey is thrilled with the results (and so is her daughter). Yes, it looks great, but she also loves that it allows her to pass along her love of MacKenzie-Childs to her daughter, just as her mother did with her. Says Katey, “This space is for fun bubble baths and time we spend together, getting her ready in the morning.”
