Bathroom Blah to Bathroom Spa

Who says all bathrooms should be all light and airy?  It doesn’t always work.

There’s nothing horrible about that bathroom, but it’s lacking some personality.  Nice orange and white shower curtain, but I can’t say those beige walls are helping out too much.

So we went a little bit more dramatic.

If I were thinking, I would have marched over to the shower and pulled that orange shower curtain into the picture, but I wasn’t thinking.  I took a picture from the doorway and moved on.

I’ve found some before & after pictures of my first bathroom renovation.  It wasn’t all me.   Sally Ross Designs of Montclair, NJ designed it and I selected the paint colors and pieces in the space. I owe so much to Sally.  She doesn’t know this, but she’s the reason I started my own business in color and design.

Here’s what the bathroom looked like the very first time I saw it.  It’s the only picture I have before it was demolished.

How about that purple??  Holy moly.  I really loved that pedestal sink.  The demolition crew accidentally threw it out the window.  Oops.

I still ache when I think about it.

I found another sink and it eased the pain a little.

We completely gutted that bathroom.

It took a few days to lay that tile.

And talk about a powerful flush.

Scared the crap out of me.

Ok, ok.  Enough bathroom humor.

This paint color is Horizon Gray from Benjamin Moore.  A favorite. 🙂
