Hey friends! Did you get hit with this icy storm? In NYC we were use to a ton of snow, and here in Nashville it’s like an ice skating rink. Everything is covered in a coat of ice. It’s sort of magical and scary at the same time. Looking at the branches is beautiful, but makes me wonder how long it will take for them to snap on electrical cords and leave us with no power. Crossing fingers that’s just a theory.
I have mentioned a lot that this blue was getting to me. We painted so many rooms already, but the staircase hallway, guest bathroom, kitchen, and master bedroom are driving me bananas. I know it’s not worth painting whats headed for demo and reconstruction, so I am just hanging back. This guess bathroom is one space that is staying put, so we were able to pull the trigger on a decision. Joey had surprised me with wallpapering our guest bathroom, and I couldn’t be more grateful for a husband that knows me so well. It was driving me mad, being all “country blue” for the past 11 months. We had some ideas, but never fleshed out a real plan until joey got the paper up.
The plan in pretty simple.
Keep: Floor, tub, toilet
Replace: sink, faucet, lights, switches, toilet flush, towel bars, trash bin, toilet paper holder, shower curtain
Add: wallpaper, small table, shower shelf above towel bar
Remove: Stained glass
Edit: The feet of the tub will go black instead of silver.
Restoration hardware is having an epic sale, so we figure now may be the time to snag that consule sink. It’s less than $800 for both the stand and the sink. If it looks familiar it’s because its from the same “Dutch” collection as our temporary Restoration Hardware dining table. What can I say? Creatures of habit we are.
The wallpaper (Hygge and West) that was a sweet surprise from Joey was intended to be hung in November, but you know how life goes.
The side table is on clearance sale at Target right now. I think it’s $50 if I am not mistaken.
The lights for above the vanity are also Restoration Hardware and are a little over $200, and are a solid back up if we can’t find a vintage treasure. We are looking for a vintage mirror and towel bars and will hopefully fine other soon once we can get out of the house to go hunt them down.
The light switch is finally being accompanied by a plug plate from the Legrand Adorne collection, respectfully in brass, and it looks perfect now!
I love peeking in the bathroom and seeing we are a step closer to how we ultimately envision it. We have a lot of projects going on at once right now, which seems to make everything move a tad slower when it comes to personal goals, but this cheerful step has me on cloud nine.
We have been working on Unit B of the Rich Hippies House because Unit A is booking up so quickly we had to re-prioritize our own renovation. We also have a show house for Rich Hippies to finish along with a music studio for Joey and a few fun clients. We plan to finish this bathroom and our renovation at the same time over the next few months. If we ever get out from under this ice.
