When we built our house it seemed like every room made a colorful statement that screamed BAM! The only room in our entire house (well, except maybe Jeff's office--it's mostly brown) that didn't look like I scribbled it with a bag of melted Skittles was our master bathroom. I loved its calmness. I loved that it was white. It felt good and it looked even better.
So why did I recently feel like scrapping it and making it over?
There was nothing wrong with it. I think the problem was me. I love taking a perfectly good space and kicking it up a notch. It's a modern, more chic version of insanity.
I thought about adding Moroccan tile to the walls surrounding the tub, but was quickly freaked out by the cost and the intensive labor to rip down sheetrock and add hardie board. It was Jeff who suggested I find a wallpaper I loved instead. Then our wires got crossed a little. When he went out of town on business I had the entire room prepped for wallpaper. When he returned home he told me he thought I was only wallpapering around the tub. Oops. Too late, babe, we're DOING IT ALL. He mumbled something under his breath and I reminded him it was his idea in the first place.
I fell in love with the Otomi-inspired wallpaper on the Hygge & West website. It is amazing and I knew the second I saw it I HAD TO HAVE IT.
The day of the installation I was confident, yet nervous about my selection. It's a busy pattern, y'all. But after the first roll went up, I knew it was a home run.
And you won't believe how much it changed the look of the room. It's UNBELIEVABLE.
Doesn't it make you want to cry?! Seriously, I can't stay out of here. It's so pretty.
Besides adding wallpaper, I changed out the chandelier to a more modern one from West Elm.
The round rug is from Serena & Lily.
The table next to the tub and the smaller round mirrors are from Urban Outfitters.
The sheepskin vanity stool is from CB2.
The large round mirror is from Hobby Lobby.
The basket next to the tub is from Target.
The two black and white abstract paintings I made myself, both for under $100.
I'm so happy with the transformation. I love my bathroom more than I did before, even though I didn't know that was possible. And surprisingly, Jeff likes it too. He's not sure about the addition of all the gold. He told me gold was out of style. I guess I need to let him in on the secret.
