It all started with a fabric. I came across this fabric and fell hard for it. Falling like that is my cue to run with it. I believe such strong feelings are signs from the decor gods. This is what I’ve centered my makeover around and what I’ll use to make a shower curtain:
When I came across this fabric, I was struck by the gentle beauty of the print. I took it as inspiration to decorate the bathroom with a relaxed, soft energy. I love the Asian vibe of the trees (probably cherry blossoms) and that it provides just enough visual interest to stand out.
Because I feel pigeon-holed by decorating in only one style, I will also use vintage elements in the room. So far, I’m inspired by oilcan soap dispensers, ironstone, and wicker baskets. I’ll also create a skirt around the sink with linen. I have a cabinet with doors beneath my sink, but it’s just fugly. And since I rent this place, I won’t be painting any of the cabinetry.
I believe the function of a bathroom is similar to our bedrooms: they should refresh, energize, and restore us. Our bathrooms help us prepare for each day and help us unwind from life. I want mine to be efficient but also like a getaway—soft and warm with a combination of romantic and refined.
Do you also tackle more than one DIY projects at the same time? Do you have a room in your home that you’ve neglected? Does your bathroom help to refresh you?
