Hello my dears! Today I am here to share a little house project that I recently completed. There is only one bathroom in the cottage, and it is modestly sized. It’s cozy and bright though, and I love it. When we moved in, the bathroom was a light blue shade. We eventually repainted it a deep teal color. I hung a Martha Stewart teal and beige patterned shower curtain and called it a day. Time went on, and I found myself utterly bored with the lack of inspiration in our little lavatory. Last year, we installed new wall sconces, which were a vast improvement over the original fixtures, but still didn’t do much to improve the room as a whole.
About a month ago, I was inspired to tackle this room and do what I could to spruce it up on a modest budget. I found a new shower curtain at Target on clearance for sixteen bucks. It seemed quite appropriate for a designer, and I loved the colors and feel of it. I decided to design the rest of the room around our new typographic curtain. First, I pulled out the leftover paint from our kitchen project, and covered the teal walls. I paused for a moment, and then decided to paint the white ceiling as well. Now the soft gray/brown tone makes the room feel much more seamless and warm. I picked up new towels at IKEA that complemented one of the darker gray tones in the shower curtain. To finish off the room, I chose a few different typefaces, then printed off the first initial of each member of our household in a different one (canines included!). I then rummaged through my box of old frames, and chose five black ones to frame our initials. The pop of black and white on the gray walls feels dramatic and fun. Considering that my only expenses totaled about $45, I’m quite happy with the improvement!
