We have now been in our new home for almost 8 months. There are so many little things to do to make the spaces complete. I feel like I am 100% starting over decorating this home, since for the past 4 years of moving and renting, I sold or donated pretty much everything I own. Which is great since my personal design style has changed so much over the years and I wanted a clean canvas to work with.
I figure finalizing bathrooms is the easiest and most cost-effect way to feel like spaces are getting complete. It’s always good to check off the “to do” list:) This bathroom is located at the top of our back staircase to the entrance of what will soon become the bonus space over the garage. I designed the bathroom to be fully functional for guests or when college kids come to visit. In a sense, I designed the entire space over the garage to be a mini apartment. With a washer and dryer hook-up, full bathroom, and soon to be mini kitchen, you might wonder if my kids will ever leave the nest. If they stay for a bit longer, because of the apartment above the garage, I won’t be complaining too loud. haha
While building, my amazing husband added the board and batten. I matched the wall paint color, Normandy from Benjamin Moore, to the ceramic tile I selected from Floor & Decor.
The darling plaid wallpaper from York- Charter Blue Plaid seemed to be the perfect balance with the floral French inspired tile. I personally love when wallpaper has a white or cream base. It makes the room still feel fresh and clean without the pattern being too overwhelming. Wallpaper can be tricky at times. You want to make sure and pick something that is timeless so you won’t tire of it easily.
I am really happy how it all turned out.
