The Master Bath

2.27.2012

I was going to wait till we painted the bathroom cabinets before revealing the new look in here, but it may be a few more weeks before those are done. Trying to let Mr. Savvy's back heal some more before we sand and paint the doors. I want him to spray them with his paint sprayer that he uses on his old cars.

The new wall color is the same color I have in the nautical guest room. It is Revere Pewter by Benjamin Moore. I was afraid it might look dark, but it turned out perfectly. I am also waiting on two new rugs from Joss & Main to come in.

Here is the before look. The walls were Saybrook Sage by BM paint and I never did like it. It was too brown looking in here.

Ah, the new color is lighter, brighter and just plain fresher. You can see I changed the art and items on top of the newly painted hutch. All these things were brought from other places in the house.

I like the mix of contemporary and vintage.

I opened the hutch doors so you can see what I have placed inside. A few towels up top along with a piece of coral, a shell, and a jar of cotton balls. Other towels are stored below.

I love the color and finish of the inside.



I filled the silver revere bowl with natural loofahs.

These items did not change.

Here is a before of the artwork over the bath tub area.

I decided to place my huge bird picture in here. I think the size and colors are perfect in here.



Vignette in the corner below the bird print with a sea fan, candlestick, and bowl of soaps.

Here is a peak at the chandelier which I made some changes to, but will share a closer look at it another time. Still working on it.

The clock has been moved from beside the tub to over the door to the bedroom. This is so Mr. Savvy won't be late for work. Of course he won't fire himself if he is.

The old globes on the lights were a yellowish color, which you can't tell with them turned on, but believe me they were. They made everything look yellow including me.

I replaced them with clear seeded glass globes and boy oh boy what a difference. Our old eyes need this bright light. We can see good in here now.




And there you have it until we paint the cabinets.

  9. Love the changes! Revere Pewter is one of my favorite colors. I love the way it reads throughout the day. With my collection of perfume bottles that I shared here, you have to know that I'm in love with your tiny floral one. I have to know where you got it. Thanks for sharing.

  36. Good morning, Kim. I had the same thought as Linda about the bird: it is perfect for over the tub since he looks all wet:):) The new colors are so much better! We replaced our lighting too with BRIGHTER bulbs for oUR old eyes too. ONky drawback is we can REALLY see what we look like:):):) XO, Pinky

  51. It looks fabulous, Kim! The new wall color was the perfect choice to compliment your "pretties" in this space. It also works beautifully with your stained glass window, which I love! I finally finished my bathroom cabs, but need to start and finish painting in there. Ugh.

  52. The cabinets will stay white. They just need to be redone after 16 years of use. You can't see how bad they are in the pictures.

    Judy, the hutch is already done.
