I can see this space being one of the most potentially controversial makeovers we did at Project Holly, but we are all thrilled with it.
Some background: As you can see, the situation before wasn’t ideal, but it wasn’t unlivable by any means. Eventually my clients plan on gutting the space and adding on to create a shmancy closet, master bath situation, but that will have to wait a year or two. In the meantime, we wanted to make the most of the existing bathroom so you didn’t really notice the less desirable elements like the beigey tile and outdated shower enclosure. So I thought…What could we do for not much money that would make you overlook those things?
Put some slutty red lipstick on that pig.
We painted e’rything the most awesomely bossy red. We switched out the cabinet hardware and faucets, added some interesting sconces/mirrors.
We got lucky and had enough leftover marble from the kitchen countertops to use in here as well.
It’s not for everyone, and probably not forever, but you definitely don’t notice the beige tile anymore! Not to mention it was super liberating to go for it and play a little.
**UPDATE** For those that asked for more of a perspective picture, here is a truly bad iPhone shot…sorry for the poor quality, it’s all I got!
