I have a dear friend and old neighbor who has a wonderful house. Her decorating is amazing and "fit" for any magazine. I always "ooohhh" and "aww" everytime I am there. Well, this past fall she came for a visit. We stripped the bathroom wallpaper..ugh what a job! We painted...we accessorized and I love it. It's so opposite from the rest of my home. However, it's a bathroom off the main part of the home.
Off the kitchen is a hallway...you can either enter the family room of the mother-in-law suite..head to the laundry room or the bathroom. So with the bathroom being "alone"..I felt like I could do almost anything.
Do you have a room like that? It's not like any other room but yet in an odd way it works.
So here it is..the paint is by Ralph Lauren and has almost a glare/shine look...painted....changed the hardware (EASY decor improvement), added some "fun" towels, a few "le fleurs" and it's a whole new bathroom.
Now, this may ruffle some "feathers" but I am a firm believer that your home can be pretty even with young kids. It make take some "pep" talks..like "Use this towel but not these towels"....or use this "soap" .
I am really not sure what this "style" is. This bathroom looks nothing like the rest of my home but it's fun and different. It works and a simple can of paint..new hardware...a few towels makes it fun. I do have some wonderful black and white pictures in the bathroom in some great matching frames ...I love pictures in bathrooms. Adds a personal touch.
Tomorrow we are heading to the laundry room. It's red with black accents...it's nothing like the rest of my house but it makes me happy as I fold all those socks and towels.
Can you think of a room in your house where just a can paint and few accessories could make all the difference?
