bathroom inspiration

this room is a bit of a challenge in our condo.  it's small and has no windows. as someone prone to dark colours, this room is going to be a difficult one to do.  its used for shaving (him) and makeup (her), so it needs to be bright.

between the two of us we have come up with 98 different ideas on how to do this room, and they change weekly.  i have a feeling this is going to be one of the last rooms we do so that we can make sure we agree on something and stick to the same idea(ish).

one thing that i am loving these days is wallpaper and wainscoting.  it's a simple way to add some fun to a room without overpowering it.

with simple decor it's all about the details.  these gold fixtures and mirrors make a simple bathroom look so much fancier.

the one thing you can never underestimate is the power of the extras - towels, bathmats, shower curtains, storage.  they are such a simple way to add to a room without doing all that much.  

green is my favourite colour, so i am absolutely in love with the first picture.  the emerald accent is beautiful.  it makes a simple black and white bathroom look like so much more.  i am also drooling over the shelves in the second photo (with the beautiful dramatic dark back) and baskets in the second photo.  such a great way to store extras.  using a dresser as a vanity is something i would love to do, but worry about space. i even have the perfect dresser for it.  such a nice way to add some character.

 
  

so many ideas for such a small room. it's going to be hard to decide, but no matter what i know we will pick well & love it.  cannot wait to share what we decide!
