What? There is a room that has not been shared here before? Yes, actually two, but we are just looking at one of them today.
Now, I should start this post with a warning label. Run before you are swallowed up in a time warp!
We are going back in time somewhat. Let's travel back to 1995, the year we built our home.
The year when jewel tones were the colors being used in decor. And wallpaper. Lots and lots of wallpaper. All the wallpaper in our house has been removed or covered up except this one tiny room.
So, are you ready? Don't say I didn't warn you.
When you walk through the farmhouse style guest room this is what lies before your eyes.
Now, I have tried to add a little farmhouse flair in here the best I could.
The brown bathtub/shower with its glorious brass doors is on the left. What, you haven't seen brown bath fixtures? Oh, but it gets even better.
There is the glorious brown throne, john, loo, toilet, commode, or whatever you call it. Yes, we have brown fixtures in this bathroom. What can we say? They were a DEAL and our pockets were not huge at all (and still aren't) when we built this home. These were discontinued pieces and Mr. Savvy said why not? Hopefully one day the toilet will be replaced with a white one and the tub can be refinished to white, but for now it is what it is.
Brass fixtures were all the rage in the nineties, too so of course I had to have them. Oh, and the faux marble vanity top was a must have.
Oh, but I saved the best for last. The LINOLEUM floor!! Oh, it must go some day soon, please.
I actually kind of still like the plaid wallpaper. It is red, blue, green and tan. When I first decorated this room almost 18 years ago I had Ralph Lauren bedding from TJ Maxx on the bed in a burgandy, green, and navy paisley pattern and it worked with this bathroom.
But, we make do with what we have and that's okay. The guest rooms are basically only used by family and then there is my poor friend, Shirley who has to use this tiny outdated bathroom when she is here.
When I stayed at Shirley's this was the beautiful large guest bath I got to use.
Poor Shirley, it just isn't right.
She gets to come enjoy my lovely little bathroom again this week one night before we head to Atlanta for the Haven Conference. Yippee!!
Y'all have a super week!
