My husband and I just bought our first house, and I was SO excited to finally be able to paint the walls! (Now that I'm done with one room, I'm less excited to do all the others...)
Our upstairs (main) bathroom is the only room that's completely done - I tackled it first because it's the only room I actually knew how I wanted to decorate before we moved in. I've wanted a gray bathroom for a REALLY long time. I think the color's just clean, fresh, and relaxing. I painted the walls a light bluish gray, the ceiling a very light gray, and the trim bright white.
This is a quick before picture I took after I took down the mirror and discovered that a) the room used to be bruise purple, and b) the painters did a really bad job.
Besides painting, I added the privacy film to the window, we replaced the light and other fixtures (which were antiqued brass and splattered with paint) with shiny chrome ones, and I sewed a matching fabric border on the towels and shower curtain:
The bath mats are memory foam, and soooo amazingly comfortable! I highly recommend them. I bought one at Bed Bath & Beyond and one at Big Lots.
I love this lantern I found at TJMaxx. The shelf was in our bedroom at our old apartment, I thought it looked good in here.
Overall I'm really happy with my lovely new bathroom, but also very glad I'm finally done with it!
