I’m happy to share that my bathroom wallpaper removal project has been moving at warp speed! Believe me, I’m as shocked as you are. I’m chalking it up to listening to Bob Marley while working. 🙂 I still have to finish the toilet area (saving the worst for last), but the larger area is done, for the most part. There is still the joyful task of wall prep before I paint, but let’s focus on the positive, shall we?
I can’t believe I took a photo from just about every angle of this bathroom, except when first enter into the bathroom! I keep going back to my stock “before we moved in” photo. Totally kicking myself – what was I thinking? I don’t know where I left my brain…
Anyway, here it is now.
You know I have been struggling with the direction to take with the master bathroom, in terms of color. I couldn’t help but notice how well this hand towel that was the inspiration for our powder room, works with the tones in the master bathroom tile. I don’t know if I’ll go in this direction or not, but it’s one of the first things that has given me any direction in working with this tile, so I’ll take it.
So, I got a little carried away… These are just a few of my favorites.
Even though I know that these aren’t necessarily a true reflection of the actual paint colors, it’s still a good starting point in getting a feel for what I like and what I don’t. I’m definitely digging on the contrast between these colors and the wood tone of the vanity (if we keep it that way).
We’re also planning on changing out the mirrors, light fixtures, faucets and cabinet hardware. Again, I haven’t figured out exactly what I want to do yet, but I certainly have a lot of ideas!
Look at this bathroom – the mirror is fantastic, and the sconces are equally beautiful.
These sconces are so elegant I can hardly stand it. It also makes me think that I need a really large mirror in the master bathroom. The faucets aren’t too shabby either.
Again – loving the large mirror in this bathroom, paired with the classic sconces. I also love how the light is reflected off of the mirror when the sconce is mounted on it like this vs. on the wall, next to the mirror.
Why not throw this idea into the ring? A stencil of some sort perhaps? Depending upon whether I do a large mirror or two smaller ones, of course. Look how timeless this powder room is – love that vanity!
Is it me, or do many of these photos have the same sconce?
It’s really tough to choose between the two looks, isn’t it? Both can be equally beautiful.
I love this style of bathroom mirror though – but I think it’s harder to pull off sconces with this look. Something to think about.
I’m smitten with this faucet. What’s not to like?
Geez, even with a mini-makeover I can’t make up my mind. I don’t know how some of you have pulled off a complete renovation! I’m open to any and all suggestions to smooth out the decision making process.
