More bathroom talk from yesterday.
The wall color is Ben Moore "Forest Moss". If there was ever a color meant to grab my attention, Forest Moss was it. I had spent the weekend at my sister-in law's house recently and slept in a room painted a similar color, and that sort of sealed it, I think its a wonderfully deep shade of green. Even though the walls in the rest of the house are getting lighter and white, I like this room being a little surprise. With adequate amounts of coffee and time, I can double coat this room in one day (the trim wasn't painted). I was excited, because the transformation was dramatic as soon as paint hit the wall.
The next big visual change was the shower curtain. This one is from Urban Outfitters. I love the graphic punch of the big black silhouette flowers, which seems to work against the green for me.
I'm primarily a bleach-white towels kind of girl, but I found these dark graphite gray towels and thought I would change it up. I made the hand towels for the former British Invasion decor, plain white hand towels with borders of a London map-printed fabric I found years ago at SuperBuzzy.
The graphite towels work with the new mirror. A medicine cabinet used to hang here, but its been empty for years, so I took it down (why did that take so long?). A $6.99 frame, thrift store find, that I spray painted a metallic graphite. Once it was dry I had a mirror put in for $27. I like the little bit of fussy it adds to the room.
This is a small cabinet I bought for this bathroom when we moved in. The fabric behind the glass (double stick taped) is my favorite print, Clippings Passion from Anna Maria's Loulouthi line. It seems to pick a little bit of the colors from around the room. The knobs I found at Anthro on sale, $2.50 each. It was at this point I realized that the bathroom was taking on an animal theme.
The prints on the walls are very tongue in cheek, prints by German artist Michael Sowa, and if you look closely you can see them hanging above Amelie's bed in the movie (one of my favorite movies of all time). I adore that quail's face!
Rene, do you remember that you gave me those "S" towels?
A calfskin rug that was moved in from another room completes the look (Gracie has a strange love of this rug).
And that is the jist. It all makes me smile.
