One Room Challenge: Week Six

palm print paper bathroom

The week we’ve all been waiting for is here! The end of the One Room Challenge is always a lot of fun. I’m excited to show off our freshly zhushed guest bath. You might remember from Week One, that we had a plain, builder grade bathroom that lacked personality. I decided to work with the existing tiles (even though I didn’t really dig them) rather than paint or remove them, due to time and budget constraints. I did replace the old counter top, faucet, hardware, mirror and light fixture, but I think the real hero of this room is the wallpaper!

I love how this all came together. Tackling a much smaller space in six weeks was a whole lot less stressful than last year’s kitchen renovation. While it looks nothing like the original inspiration photo, having something/anything to inspire you in the beginning of a project can be a great jumping off point. In this instance it inspired me to go with some brass elements and some patterned wallpaper. I’ve listed all the sources at the bottom. Unfortunately, the shower curtain and brass toilet paper holder I’d ordered arrived after the photos were taken late last week, at this point I’m not even sure the room needs them…

    Sue, it honestly doesn't even look like the original tile anymore. In fact, at first glance I thought you had changed it. It's all so lovely and one of my favorites this year!

  17. You couldn't have chosen a better wallpaper to mix with the tile and I adore how you also papered the ceiling. Oh and that mirror…soooooo good. I love all the brass of course and how elegant but still playful your design is. Beautiful job!!!!

  42. Really lovely! It came out great Sue. Love all the brass. I've just ordered a new brass faucet for our downstairs powder room, very similar to this one. You didn't say where you got the brass towel bar? Could you let me now the source? Would love to see if it might work in our BR too.

    Thanks!
