I finished up with the demo Wednesday and love it even more. The extra little bit I took down made a big difference. I also cut back the pony wall -- totally keeping it, loved your thoughts on it -- so it widened the opening back to the tub room even more. It already feels like it should have been like that all along.
Since I've got bathrooms on the brain and I'm currently trying to finish up my design plans for this one, I thought it would be fun to share some of the prettiest bathrooms around blogland for inspiration. Be sure to visit these bloggers at the link below the photos.
I have to start with a stunner. I mean, come on. Courtney's bathroom is drop dead gorgeous:
You know what's funny? It's timely because the gilded touches remind me so much of Beauty and the Beast. This looks like it could be Belle's bathroom. ;)
I notice a trend when I'm drawn to certain bathrooms -- I love a bright white space with a darker wall or vanity as contrast. I love contrast so I shouldn't be surprised.
I loved this transformation from The Handmade Home:
The floor and the simple dark gray vanity are on point!
This bathroom looks completely different with some simple changes -- white paint is the game changer in this room!:
My favorites -- the dark navy vanity with rustic hardware combined with the wood framed mirror.
Cyndy sent me photos of her bathroom reno and my mouth dropped open when I saw them. She shared them with me because they opened up their two-room bath as well:
Holy cats, right? I mean, what a difference! Opening up the tub to a shower made a big difference too! I love the dark grasscloth walls (yummy) and that tile floor!
I've always loved Christina's small bathroom makeover:
This transformation was pretty big too -- love the light gray and wood tones together:
What a beautiful, bright, updated space!
I didn't even realize Jen's bathroom was in the basement until I read more:
I adore that cornflower blue on the small vanity! What a great way to reuse a piece!
This makeover Chris did years ago is still one of my favorites:
My favorites -- the black vanity (love) and the light blue ceiling. :)
Rhoda's bathroom underwent a big transformation, but the shower is my favorite:
I LOVE how she combined the black and white different tiles here -- so classic. If we could get away with doing a full shower and no tub I'd do it. But for this house and resale someday it's not the best idea.
A new vanity made ALL the difference in this makeover:
My love for dark gray will never waver. Love it.
And one of my absolute favorites of late to wrap up this list -- my friend Beth just completed a gorgeous makeover of their master bath. Check out the before and after!:
There are so many beautiful details in this room, you have to check it out at the link! Wow.
These get me even more excited to keep the progress going in ours! I love every one of these!
Have a wonderful weekend my friends! :)
