As most of you realize, I’m making some adjustments to our hallway lavatory. I had deliberate to do these adjustments in some unspecified time in the future sooner or later, however then after I was pressured into swapping out the countertop a lot before I had deliberate, it set issues in movement now.
So throughout the final couple of weeks, the toilet has gotten a brand new countertop (Vicostone Eysian quartz), a brand new self-importance coloration (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 (truly, champagne bronze) coloration, 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 coloration in right here with the brand new countertop. The present wall coloration is Benjamin Moore Traditional Grey. I’ve it all through your complete home. You may see the alternative ways I’ve used it to create a cohesive design all through our home proper right here.
Whereas that paint coloration goes with nearly all the pieces, I don’t like how that hotter grey seems with the cooler grey countertop. I attempted to give you one other wall coloration, however I haven’t discovered something that works to date. I even tried two extremely tremendous gentle greens (taken instantly from the bathe curtain cloth), however I didn’t like these, both.
After which it dawned on me that as an alternative of utilizing the floral print as a bathe curtain within the room, I might order it as a wallpaper and put it on the partitions! I imply, I’m type of in my “wallpaper all of the issues” part 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 cherished 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 appear to be within the lavatory. And…I adore it.
It has the identical colours in it that the one with the white background has, however this may add a lot extra coloration and aptitude to the room.
And it seems stunning with the toilet doorways and the remainder of the doorways within the hallway.
I completely love the thought of utilizing this wallpaper. If I have been nonetheless utilizing this lavatory as my essential lavatory to bathe and prepare for the day, this wallpaper could be an excessive amount of. However that is only a visitor lavatory now, and nobody is in right here placing on make-up anymore. So I type of need to deal with it like a dramatic little powder room. And it’s not like there’s an entire lot of wall area in right here anyway.
If I’m going this path, I’ll need to change different issues as nicely. (Should you give a mouse a cookie, proper? 😀 )
- I clearly wouldn’t use the white cloth with the identical sample as a bathe curtain, so I’d should give you one other plan for that.
- I wouldn’t place any art work on the top wall. The wallpaper is artwork sufficient.
- I’d take away the cabinets from above the bathroom, and possibly simply dangle 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 most likely have to color the ceiling white. And I’m okay with that. It might 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.
