I was cleaning my bathroom the other morning and realized that I’ve never blogged photos – which I meant to do – after I finished my bathroom makeover last month. The walls were lime green for the first four years that we lived here and I was over it!
I wanted a calming environment so I chose a blue/grey paint with black & white accents, and I am very happy with the soothing result! Here are a few photos of the “after” since I completely forgot to document the “before.”
This is an overview of the bathroom, and the shower and toilet are to the right. That big wonderful jacuzzi tub is part of what sold us on this house
I still need to find a window treatment that I love, and I really need to paint both of the towel bars black, so it’s still a work in progress.
I painted the mirror and light fixture black…
I still need to paint the towel bars black, and I already had white towels that are wonderfully soft. I love my new bathroom and I’m so happy that I achieved such a different look without spending very much at all! Paint and spray paint are so cheap and painting towel bars, light fixtures, mirrors, etc, is so easy and fun!
Happy room makeovers, friends!
Then our master bedroom got a total makeover when we bought this amazing king bedroom set from a friend. It’s an absolutely stunning sleigh bed with a wood and leather headboard and footboard. The gold and burgundy bedding came with the bedroom set, and although I like it, I am excited to try something new in another few years. For now, I went ahead and painted the walls to coordinate with the bedding and chose a photo to enlarge for the wall that coordinated well with our room colors.
That photo on the wall was from our very first session ever with the Holritz’s, just shortly after we met them back in 2006. It’s a 24″x36″ art print and I adore it. As my friends and family know, my favorite way to decorate my home and make it totally unique and customized is to enlarge images of our family. I adore fabulous quality photography and there is nothing that I could fill my space with that would EVER make me as happy as photos of my wonderful, amazing family.
I love to keep our space decorated and comfortable but I am definitely a minimalist! I love large, eye catching things for my walls. I love great furniture and decorative pieces but I stay away from clutter and things that I will just want to get rid of in a few years. I hate storing things! I love big open spaces and clean, modern decor.
Now that I’ve blogged our master bed and bath, I think I will work on taking photos of other rooms in the house to blog gradually as well. It’s a fun change from my normal blogging and I always love to see how others are decorating their spaces, too!
There is still so much I’d love to do, and ways I’d like to modernize and update our home. I’m just waiting on that $5,000 Home Depot gift card that we’re gonna win from that online survey I filled out
