The floor is beige, the counter top is white and neither of those were an option to replace so I chose a beige/gray paint color to coordinate with the tile and pick up the marble veining in the counter top. I also painted the vanity black and changed out the hardware to brass. I think the brass really warms up the space.
The builder's grade mirror also had to go so I purchased 2 mirrors from Hobby Lobby, one was 50% off and the other one had a scratch so I was able to asked for a lower price and I was able to easily touch it up. The lighting is actually outdoor lighting from Home Depot. You don't have to only use "bathroom" items to decorate and design your bathroom.
I love taking a bath at the end of the day and the tray going across the bath is just a discarded piece of wood that I stained. I think the wood really brings some warmth to the space.
The art on the wall is from the Nate Berkus line and I made the curtains using a new sew method. The best thing I did was take out the mini blinds and add the frosted lining to the bathroom window. There is so much more light that comes in now!
I have a one year old baby boy who bathes in our bathroom, he doesn't have a ton of bath toys yet and so I figured why not keep them out so they are easily reached and why not put them in something pretty.
The chair was a thrift store find and my husband always uses it to sit with my son and I during bath time. I think adding furniture in the bathroom is also a great tip and a way to add some more fabric to the space.
Everything is easy to get to, towels in the basket and hanging on hooks.
I personalized the space with photos of my kids during bath time and added some architectural interest with empty frames and a no fuss plant brings a little life into the room.
My favorite element of the room is my rug though, it's NOT a bathroom rug and it's large, it dries quickly and brings warmth and pattern to the space and just makes it cozy. I really used alot of non-traditional items in the bathroom, the glasses are smoky gray from Goodwill, a jewelry box, brass pretties. The room was done on a very small budget and I basically just changed the paint, mirrors and lighting and lots of accessories!!
