I have done a brief post on this room before, but I LOVE what we were able to accomplish in here for very little dollars.
This is their hall bathroom that is shared by their son and daughter. When we first toured the house, this bathroom understandably was one of their concerns. Gutting it wasn’t in the budget, and they didn’t initially see how it could work. But we all did kind of appreciate the original pink tile that was still in great condition. We wanted to keep it, but get rid of the granny and make it a bit more boy friendly.
Inspired by The Beverly Hills Hotel, we ripped out the wallpaper and painted 5 inch wide green stripes throughout the room, and brought in their famous Martinique wallpaper as a roman shade.
There was still the issue of the gold dainty rose band of accent tile. No matter how you looked at it, it was outdated and not in a charming way. We tried to see if we could somehow remove just that band of tile and replace it? Nothing was working, until I frustratedly suggested to the contractor we should just “UGH! Paint it black, and he was like “OK!” And it worked! Easy as that. Bless him. He used some special paint and regrouted and it’s the perfect solution.
We took out the giant wall o’ mirror, added sconces, new hardware, and some pretty accessories and it is a whole new room, for the cost of paint and accessories! And the pink tile lives to serve another generation. Snaps.
