I thought I'd share pictures of my new house, room by room, and share some thoughts as we unpack and decorate. Let's start with the bathroom - a room I initially had a lot of mixed feelings about: loved the old cabinet and the pedestal sink - it's the perfect scale for the room, but hated the overwhelming white tile. It's amazing how a good shower curtain can make all the difference in the world.
White, white, white. I'm still not nutso for all that mis-matched white tile, especially since the floor tiles are so worn that they never look clean, but I have to admit, adding a white shower curtain made me really really happy with this space. Pretty towels also helped a lot:
In the short term, I'd like a new lighting fixture and like the whole house, these walls desperately need repainting. Long term, I dream of updating the other fixtures, re-tiling, and changing the faucets.
And a little P.S. for those long-term dreams: Health Tiles. Mmmm, these blue-gray tiles make me swoon. I love that the glaze has some subtle variation. It's the same effect I love out of somewhat-solid yarns: elegant use of color.
