Bathroom Inspiration

Home ownership brings along many projects. It always amazes me when you move into a home that you think is perfect, to find out you change everything about it.

We have made many changes in our home & next on the demand list is the upstairs bathroom. It is one ugly room with a blue tub, blue tiled walls and flowered wall paper. Not the cute kind but the acid trip 70's style. So soon enough we will embark on a new venture.

A small sampling of it's hideousness.

In the meantime I will share with you my inspiration.
Simple fabric project can turn a plain white shower curtain into the main element in a bathroom.

How vertical & horizontal stripes can work together.

Love how a simple white sink can spruce up a laminate counter top.

Bringing in small splashes of pink can add a feminine touch with out being over the top.

In smaller bathrooms don't be afraid to splurge a little on the flooring.

There is no set rule that says you have to buy a standard vanity from a big box store. Make your statement piece out of an old antique dresser.

Think out of the box.

For about $70, you can change a plain white sink into something a little more custom looking.

For about 135.00 you can grab this fun faucet.

Fun splashes of blue for a beachy look & Board and Batten planked walls for texture.

Add personal touches like a chandelier or flowers.

You don't have to limit yourself to cupboards & towel racks.

Adding chair rails can break up bold colors and give visual interest to boring walls.

Don't be afraid to make fun lighting choices. Outdoor lighting in a splash of red.

Or in galvanized metal for $35 at barnlightelectric

Make it fun for the kids & give them a number.

Search salvage yards for unique pieces.

Vintage finds are so Divine with a splash of blue:)

Hope you are feeling inspired today:)
