We are inching closer to the fun part over at the pool house. I know this is taking FOREVER. That’s just real life construction in Michigan at the moment! In the meantime, I’ll share my bunk room mood board now that I have narrowed down a few selections.
Bunk Room Mood Board
So as I mentioned in this post, we plan to vertically plank all the walls and ceilings. Which we will paint my beloved Extra White by Sherwin Williams. With the ceilings being low in this space, I want it to feel light and bright.
The Mr. and I found this luxury vinyl plank at Lowe’s and we plan on laying it ourselves. We wanted something that was durable, waterproof, and a medium tone color to hide dirt. This fits the bill, plus it’s really reasonably priced. It looks nice with the patterned tile that will be in the mudroom/bathroom on the lower level.
Behold my chicken scratch sketch of the bar area upstairs!
Here is the wall I’m talking about to refresh your memory…
We plan on building this little nook out so it will be flush with the wall. We will paint the cabinets Blue Note by Benjamin Moore which I used on our kitchen island recently. I want this space to feel like an extension of our home, so I like the continuity of using the same colors. I’m going with brass accents and hardware for something a little different.
We plan on using this gray subway tile on the wall, as well as a little backsplash above the bar counter. I love the color variations in it. I still need to figure out the countertop material, but I’m hoping to find a grayish quartz remnant from a local shop. I’m excited about this little pseudo kitchen area. It will be so nice to have drinks and snacks right near the pool in the summer.
This is the simple plan for the built-in beds. I think I will be painting those white as well to keep your eye moving through the room. I love the sconce detail and cannot wait to see them come together. I’m thinking of simple striped bedding, crisp white sheets, with a throw pillow and blanket for some color. Maybe a pop of green? Still working that out in my head!
There will be 5 semi-flush mount lights along the middle of the ceilings. I found these unique gray and brass fixtures. I think they will pop against the white planked ceilings. Hopefully, I have some actual progress shots to share soon! You can read more about the pool house plans here and the bathroom plans here.
