Another Bathroom Update

Well ladies and gentlemen, our powder room is allllllmost finished. I’m still in search of a storage unit to hold the unnecessary toilet room knick knack paddy whack stuff I didn’t throw out during demo and need to hide. To the right of the sink is a big empty space that requires this storage thing I speak of.

Last night we made some progress and hung up this towel ring thing. And by we I mean The Husband.

I played my part by bringing in this glass vase and stuck some greenery in it to fool you into thinking I always have fresh flowers.

Before we proceed, let’s take a trip down memory lane with some befores

The Eh

The Vicious

The Now We’re Getting There

I’ll have you know that taking this picture here was tricky and proved to me I have a strong sense of balance.

You see, If I stood directly in front of the mirror you’d see exactly what I look like in the morning and I want to keep you thinking I wake up like one of those girls on tv, fresh faced and no pillow wrinkles. I also wake up with minty fresh breath. I’d be jealous of me.

So yeah, I had to balance the hell out of myself in order to get a decent shot shot shot shot.

The things I do for you.

Now in return, all I ask is that you tell me what a great job I did in selecting my wallpaper.

And anything else you feel like pointing out.

No pressure.

Happy Tuesday!

    UMMMM….holy schnikies! When you said bathroom update, I couldn’t believe it was the same space. BANANAS. I absolutely love the mixed metals, and the wallpaper is blowing my mind.

    I’m pinning this shiz as fast as I can.

  11. March 29, 2011

    Wow it looks absolutely stunning! And I personally LOVE mixing metals. Nice nice nice work!

  12. March 29, 2011

    Hi there! I love your bathroom remodel and you did such a great job! Can you provide a source list?



  13. March 29, 2011

    The wallpaper. The mirror. Gorgeous!!!!

  14. March 30, 2011

    Pfft. I didn’t even notice the “mixed-metals” until Raquel pointed it out… Isn’t that just the way things are done now? It’s fresh. I mean, totally coordinated hardware is just sooo ’90’s. Duh. lol

    I love it. How could I not? You have an amazing eye for eclectic, funky-yet-classic design.

  15. Holy bananas…it’s AMAZING!!!! I seriously LOVE the wallpaper and the mixed metals is utterly fabulous. You couldn’t have made it any more perfect. Total gorgeousity!

  16. Love your orange wallpaper, it is such a dramatic statement. Your mirror is gorgeous too, great work!

  17. March 30, 2011

    You did an amazing job! I love the colour of this wall paper expecially against the white of your sink. I also like how it is so clean looking with the light the mirror and the sink.

  18. March 30, 2011

    Irene, you did a fantastic job selecting your wallpaper. I really mean it. Your mirror is the too. Like where you are going with the trash can. Can the hand towel be the same color too?

  19. March 30, 2011

    Let me say it’s not the mixing of the metals that’s the problem. The gold mirror is fab and reminds me of Maleficent. But the chrome fixtures look lower end and boring. Sorry, just being honest. I admire the attempt to be eclectic.

  20. March 30, 2011

    Love your bathroom…so fresh and I like that it is not all matchy….

  21. March 30, 2011

    Love it! The mirror & wallpaper rock my socks off!

  22. March 30, 2011

    HA! You’re hysterical; I can totally relate to doing ridiculous balancing acts for photos. Bathroom look AMAZING!!!!

  23. I love that mirror and your wallpaper selection is perfect! I know how difficult it is to pick the perfect color & pattern as I’m currently going through the same process. There are sooooo many options to choose from!

  24. Definitely a great choice on the wallpaper!
    I love it.
