I've been debating which room to tackle next, and have honestly been at a bit of a standstill on where to begin. It may seem like our house is done, but actually the entire back half of the house is mostly untouched. That includes three bedrooms (one to be an office), a hall bath, and our master bedroom. Somehow inspiration struck for the guest bath, so I guess that's where we're headed next! Here's what I'm thinking...
I know you're not too surprised by the white and gray : ) But I do want to add just a hint of color with mint - it always feels fresh and clean to me.
Here is how it's looking now. I apologize I forgot to take the photo during the day so it looks even worse in the evening with lights on, but at least you can see what we're working with. I recently found the bath mat at TJ Maxx and love it, and I already had the ruffled white shower curtain from our last house. The rest needs to go, however!
I really like the Hampton Bay Nadia collection from Home Depot, and will probably purchase the semi-flush mount and vanity three-light in the near future (the flush mount is on sale right now if you're interested!). I know it's picky but I much prefer lighting (especially vanity lights) with fabric shades rather than glass or plastic, so I think these fit the bill and lend a simple, elegant touch.
That plastic roller blind needs to go in a hurry, am I right? I would love to replace it with a custom roman blind made from this gorgeous Riad by Windsor Smith for Kravet in seafoam, but I think I'd probably have to sell my right leg to afford it (boo, expensive designer fabric). We'll see if I can find something similar for less. I love the geometric pattern, the fact that it's linen, and that it's a green that can read very gray, not too over-the-top green.
Next up, shelving. I debated between a large piece of artwork to go above the toilet, or shelving. I think having shelves will allow me to add a little more personality through accessories (and change them up if I change my mind). This pretty wall shelf is from Home Decorators, though I'm not completely sure what shelf I'll actually go with. I'd really rather find something at a flea market for $15 that pay $150 for a ready-made piece, although this one is darling. So we shall see what I find.
The color will come through accessories like towels, soap and storage jars. I'm loving mint right now, but it's nice to know when I change my mind I can simply change out a few accessories for a new look. (Mason jars and soap - World Market, glass jar - Target, others - Google search)
So those are the big items - all decorative for now. I'd love to replace the tile, sink and toilet eventually, but for now a little "fluffing" will go a long way in giving this bath some personality. What do you think - is mint the right direction for this space? I'm excited to get started!
