As most of you understand, I’m making some adjustments to our hallway toilet. I had deliberate to do these adjustments sooner or later sooner or later, however then after I was pressured into swapping out the countertop a lot earlier than I had deliberate, it set issues in movement now.
So throughout the final couple of weeks, the lavatory has gotten a brand new countertop (Vicostone Eysian quartz), a brand new vainness shade (Behr Glamorous), and a new shower curtain fabric (which hasn’t been sewn right into a bathe curtain simply but).
I’m nonetheless planning on swapping out the entire silver fixtures for a brushed gold (really, champagne bronze) shade, after which swapping out the accent tile across the room.
However I ran right into a little bit of a snafu as a result of, fairly frankly, I don’t just like the wall shade in right here with the brand new countertop. The present wall shade is Benjamin Moore Basic Grey. I’ve it all through your complete home. You’ll be able to see the alternative ways I’ve used it to create a cohesive design all through our home proper right here.
Whereas that paint shade goes with nearly the whole lot, I don’t like how that hotter grey appears with the cooler grey countertop. I attempted to provide you with one other wall shade, however I haven’t discovered something that works thus far. I even tried two extremely tremendous mild greens (taken straight from the bathe curtain material), however I didn’t like these, both.
After which it dawned on me that as a substitute of utilizing the floral print as a bathe curtain within the room, I may order it as a wallpaper and put it on the partitions! I imply, I’m sort of in my “wallpaper all of the issues” section proper now, so why not? 😀
So I went onto the Spoonflower web site to take a look at that print within the wallpaper possibility, and that’s when I discovered that the designer who made the print I beloved additionally made that exact design with a teal background!
Y’all! A teal background!! So naturally, I needed to order a pattern to see what it might seem like within the toilet. And…I adore it.
It has the identical colours in it that the one with the white background has, however this could add a lot extra shade and aptitude to the room.
And it appears lovely with the lavatory doorways and the remainder of the doorways within the hallway.
I completely love the concept of utilizing this wallpaper. If I have been nonetheless utilizing this toilet as my essential toilet to bathe and prepare for the day, this wallpaper could be an excessive amount of. However that is only a visitor toilet now, and nobody is in right here placing on make-up anymore. So I sort of wish to deal with it like a dramatic little powder room. And it’s not like there’s a complete lot of wall house in right here anyway.
If I’m going this path, I’ll wish to change different issues as properly. (When you give a mouse a cookie, proper? 😀 )
- I clearly wouldn’t use the white material with the identical sample as a bathe curtain, so I’d should provide you with one other plan for that.
- I wouldn’t place any paintings on the top wall. The wallpaper is artwork sufficient.
- I’d take away the cabinets from above the bathroom, and perhaps simply grasp one framed image.
- I’d take away the present mirror (which is HUGE in relation to the room) and put up a smaller mirror in order that extra of the wallpaper would present.
- I’d discover one other tile (one thing that doesn’t seize consideration) to make use of on the backsplash and across the room.
- With teal on the partitions, I’d in all probability have to color the ceiling white. And I’m okay with that. It could match the music room ceiling.
However y’all! Simply have a look…
I imply, come on now. How can I not do this?
And I do love the sample with the white background…clearly. I wouldn’t have bought the material with the white background if I didn’t prefer it. However ever since seeing that sample with the teal background, I can’t get it out of my thoughts.
