To celebrate my one-year anniversary of living in my apartment, I'm offering a room by…
It’s been a while since I showcased my apartment and with our moving out soon, I want to be sure and share it with you.
The bathroom in my place is a good size, a interesting shape and the first room I painted when I moved in. I figure bathrooms are easy and you can take some chances with the color so off I went to decorate it.
Here is what the bathroom looked like when I moved in.
What inspired me for this room was a trip to The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art which features “the most comprehensive collection” of Louis Comfort Tiffany works. You may know Tiffany by his jewelry or his lamps or his windows. All are amazing and truly sources of inspiration for home decor.
When I was at the museum a few years ago, I picked up this postcard as a souvenir. Little did I know it would inspire my bathroom. I love the colors in it, the white flowers, the simplicity of the design and actually took it to the store while I picked out a paint color to match.
Can you imagine this as a window in your home? Beautiful.
Since the bathroom has an angled ceiling because my apartment is on the third floor, I thought I could accent the room’s shape and decided to go with Tropical Splash for the left side of the room, Twilight Gray for the ceiling/wall and white for the trim.
I upgraded the window a bit with window film found at Home Depot. It goes with my Tiffany theme, and is very easy to install. I’m not a big window treatment girl, so this was a simple solution to privacy.
For the area below the window I pictured a black cabinet to store the bathroom goodies and I found a perfect one at the Target Global Bazaar the year I moved in. Who remembers the Global Bazaar? It was before the annual January Home Event. Remember?
Here is the very interesting commode shot with my TP in a basket on the floor. That was actually by mistake because when we tried to get the holder back on the wall after painting, it wouldn’t go on! So I found a fun solution.
There’s a little cubby area behind the shower/next to the toilet if you noticed. I store paint back there, which is neatly concealed by one of my $5 shutters.
