The Bathrooms

We made a trip to Target a few days after we arrived in Ohio and the first rooms we bought for were the bathrooms.  The colors in the new place don’t work with the existing stuff I had.   I don’t think I have a before of the master bathroom, but here’s a before of the main bathroom.



It is a light blue gray and it is right across from the guest room.  It seems the previous owner was color coordinating them since the guest bedroom is a darker blue gray {like a slate gray}.  It felt kind of masculine to me, so I went with it.    You could, of course, go with white or light grey, too, but this is what “spoke” to me at the time.



Not my first choice, but I’m trying to even out the decorating between my husband and I by not going all creamy, ruffled or feminine with the décor in every room.  I think I can give over a little bit in a bathroom!  Still  need a picture or two in here, but I didn’t have any existing pictures or wall décor that will work in here. 


Here’s the master bathroom.  I hung up three of my wild grass prints in the bamboo frames.  I previously had these in my master bedroom in our old house.  That door leads to the closet.


I was trying to work with the floor tile in both these bathrooms.  It seems she had tile with gray involved put down wherever she had tile. 


I may wind up changing the master bath look as time goes on, because I’m really not feeling the stripes and I think having it in one of the bathrooms is enough.  What do you think?


I still would like to try the Mirror Mates on these mirrors, too.  Maybe do the hanging the empty frame thing in the middle where the vanity section is, to break up the long expanse of mirror.

Oops, I added a picture to the bathroom after I did this post.


I had this one in my powder room in the other house and I thought the colors worked well in here.  Now I just need something for this wall.


I moved the plunger/toilet brush you see here and put a stool there for now.  It will need to be painted as it is antique white with a crackle finish.

You are amazing. Next time I move I'm bringing your energy and creativity with me. I've never settled our homes as fast as you've been able to! Seriously, that's a gift. Some people live for months out of boxes.

I am seeing a lot of grey and mustard pairings in colors and am actually loving it so I really like what you have done!

I also love the idea of hanging an empty frame between the sinks to break up the expanse of the mirror. It will really give that area some depth.

Great job Kathy!!!

Looks like you are making a lot of progress on your new place. We did a lot of moving for my husband's job over the years and I know what it's like to pack and unpack and try to make things work in a new house. I agree with are amazing with all of your energy and creativity!!

Becca Bertotti said...

So pretty, Kathy ... I'm so envious of your vanity space! And, pretty color you chose for the other bath, as well. Your home is coming right along, isn't it ?!

Your bathrooms are looking so beautiful. I love the stripes as they do bring a hint of a masculine feeling which I'm sure your husband is happy about. I adore your butterfly print.


Lynn at Cottage and Creek said...

You've done a great job pulling the bathroom together. I like the stripes and agree with you that every room can't be white ruffles and lace, as much as we love that look. Congrats on the new house. It looks lovely.

Hi Kathy...'s sooo much fun watching you decorate your new place, my friend! I love gray...really it's a very versatile color. I think you could pair it with just about any color and it would look great! I love your new striped shower curtain and linens in the guest bath! Sooo...sooo pretty, my friend! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

I also wanted to thank you for coming by and taking a peek at my autumn table. I sure enjoyed your visit and sweet note! Thank you!

Warmest autumn wishes,

Kathy, Every room looks amazing! You are doing such a great job and so fast! I love the bathrooms. I like the idea of mirror mates or the frame in the vanity portion of the mirror. It all looks gorgeous! It is hard to balance a male's needs and what we want, I know, but you have done this beautifully!

The Rooster and The Hen said...

It's all coming together so beautifully! I think you've struck a nice balance between masculine and feminine. Thanks for stopping by our place too. Hen
