The bathroom has been a bit static recently. We had the wall taken down in the room early on which previously made it both a bathroom and kitchen. Weird. Then we installed a new bath, sink, shower, loo and washing machine which has gone into a little utility cupboard in the corner of the room. And to be honest we’ve quickly got used to it at this functional stage.
But this week we have had our plasterer back and so that means we can start thinking about painting the walls and what we’re going to do with the room.
I saw this picture in a magazine, Living Etc I think and liked it (it started my recent pink obsession).
Why they keep a suitcase under the sink I don’t know. But ignore that.
So I was thinking maybe lots of white with a fresh green and bright pink.
I’ve posted here before about this Toile paper by Timorous Beasties.
I love how it seems to be one thing but is in fact another and it could be my green. But it’s cream background isn’t quite right and it’s £100. Maybe for somewhere else.
The bath is in the center of the room and that does mean we need to think of a way of giving some privacy from the window.
We hate frosted windows and so I’m thinking of getting a super old-fashioned lace curtain.
And we need to think about how we’re going to dry clothes on dull winter days. We have decided to get an overhead airer which we’ll position somewhere above the bath so you can relax and look up at your knickers drying.
Finally flooring. I really really want black and white tiles. Klaus wants carpet. We’ll see how that pans out.
But in the meantime we need to get the walls finished, plastered, painted and go from there. I’ll be interested to see how closely we stick to these initial plans.
