California Casual Powder Room Mood Board

A room design mood board plan for a powder room + a breakdown of California Casual style.

We are finally kicking off something HUGE within the next week that I have been dying to do ever since starting this little blog. Decorating and DIYing for others!

Robert and I have felt so blessed to meet and get to know so many sweet friends and neighbors in the last few years, and we have a few projects in the works to do a few room makeovers for them in our community.

(Who knows, maybe one day we’ll be able to branch out to all of the Charlotte area, but for now this feels like a good small step.)

Last year, we got to know Regan’s preschool teacher really well and have come to absolutely love her.

She just moved from California within the last two years, and she recently gave me a little tour of her home she just bought and has been fixing up.

She discovered black mold in her powder room and had to remedy that situation over the summer, so we’re jumping in to take the reigns and give it a “California Casual” style while she is back at work teaching.

Here’s what the space looks like right now:

If you haven’t heard of California Casual interior design style, I know you’ve at least seen it all over Instagram and Pinterest.

California Casual style is:

  • Earthy color palette
  • Light, open, airy spaces
  • White/off-white walls
  • Neutral upholstery
  • Light wood tones
  • Lots of plants
  • Handmade pottery & planters
  • Natural, organic materials
  • Mid-century Modern furniture shapes – sleek & clean lines
  • Ethnic textiles – rugs, pillows, tapestries, etc.

Studio Mcgee and Amber Interiors are two I love that nail Cali Cas every time.

This is the vision we’re going with.

California Casual Powder Room Mood Boards:

(High school-ish mirror selfie moment because why not? Haha!)

Vanity | Mirror | Light (I found this cheaper one I’ll spray paint black) | Faucet | Rug | Soap Dispenser | Hand Towel | Towel Ring | Paint colors: Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace & Stonington Gray

Frames | Art (I’m hoping to whip up some free printable if I have time) | Rug

Shelves | Shelf Brackets | Faux Plant | Planter | TP Holder | Wastebasket | Candle | Baskets | Large Canister | Small Canister | Orb

I’m SO excited to get started on it and try out a different style we don’t really have as much of in our own home. What do you think? Good directions?

There is really no one else more deserving. That makes it the best part of all.
