Remember when we moved into this house over the summer and I declared I was going to make over this half bath from start to finish before I got distracted by other projects in our new home?
I may not have followed through exactly as planned, but it’s still the same calendar year, and I’m pleased to say that I would call this space finished.
Let’s remember where we started so we can relish how far we’ve come.
I think the challenge in here (and my favorite part) is balancing the high and the low. The perfect gold mirror inspired by my years in Paris…
And the rustic, old-school iron hooks and rustic, warm wood.
I think the black and white split photo art blends those two styles together somewhat.
Thankfully, the wainscoting was already there (remember when I painted it all?), and the plumbing was in great shape. I even like the faucet that was there.
I selfishly stole our gorgeous organic cotton rug for my master bath (guilty!), and I really loved how this little rug from Ikea brought a little blue into the room. Unfortunately, it was a little small for the space, so I just sewed two together.
And that’s it. As the only downstairs bathroom, it’s a hard working room. And though it’s not pool season, we are a little hot tub obsessed, so it’s still getting used as a changing room, too. And I think it’s doing its job perfectly.
It merges my love of rustic wood tones, glamorous French style, and mixed metals. It’s got my whites and grays and a touch of blue. It’s awesome… if I may say so myself. 😉
