Be Our Guest!! A Guest Bathroom that is fun and funky!
When we were designing our addition, we wanted to add another bathroom. It ended up being quite a pain to be honest. We had to rip up our entire driveway to put in the the pipes to make it to the main drain, was it worth it? HECK YEA!!
I knew that I wanted the bathroom to be fun, funky, have a lot of texture, pattern and most of all COLOR!
I always like to start with a "LEAD" pattern. What this means is a piece that incorporates all the colors that I want to pull into the room. I fell in love with this wallpaper from Milton and King! The paper is called "from up here", I ordered the sample and when it came in I knew this was it! I love the colors, the cheeky pattern and of course all the birds. The paper quality was great and it was really easy to install.
Once I had the sample in hand I was able to easily select the rest of the materials for the bathroom. I had my heart set on this amazing cement tile from Lili Cement tiles, I knew it was going to go perfect with the paper. The pattern on the tile is called Tiffany and comes in several colors, you can even customize your own colors which is always a nice option to have. One thing I also love about this tile as a maker is that each piece is hand made. I mean, how cool is that? I decided to go with a simple white subway tile for the shower walls not to take away from the gorgeous tile and to give the eye a rest.
I decided to add a texture to the walls with rectangular panels of caning framed in rectangles. We made the wainscoting of MDF, then added the caning on the wall with spray adhesive, and framed it out with a thin trim. We then painted it with this gorgeous deep blue by Dunn Edwards : Atlantis DE5790
I finished off the bathroom with a mirror from Serena and Lily, Vanity and shelving unit from Anthropologie, Commode by Kholer.
Check back soon to see what other fun things I am working on!
