You may have noticed that I've been ramping up my client work as of late. Experimenting with other styles, working with different personalities, and dealing with feedback has been quite the experience. And I am thankful for it!
Recently I had the opportunity to put a mood board together for my cousin's bathroom update. She's a young professional, living in her own home. The bathroom space is fairly small, with a heavily patterned tile floor in shades of yellow, grey and blue. I wanted the feel of the bathroom to be light, bright and most importantly youthful while working with the existing tile color and pattern.
This shower curtain was the jumping off point for the whole space. The large scale pattern won't compete with the small tile pattern and the various shades of grey will compliment the current scheme.
Adding additional storage is also a must in a small space - no matter how many people are sharing it. You can never have enough storage! I love the classic, yet youthful look of these cross brace shelves from Ballard Designs.
Plus, shelves are a great place to add a pop of unexpected color when wall and/or floor space is at a premium.
These bowls from Anthropologie compliment the yellow currently in the space, while also introducing a new accent color, which will add more depth to the room. And, as we all know, bowls can be used to corral all kinds of things, like jewlery at the end of the day or before you hit the shower.
Speaking of a long day, a garden stool is the perfect size perch to nestle next to the tub for a book, magazine or drink while you indulge in a long, hot bath.
Oh yes, that sounds good right about now.
Thank you, Sara, for allowing me to work on this project for your home. It was fun! I can't wait to see where you take it from here.
