Meet our powder room. It was the first room we decorated when we moved in almost four years ago.
Wainscoting and a chunky chair rail went up, the walls went black, and in came a new light, a glam mirror and some art we had laying around the house. Cheap Ikea tp holder and towel bar were installed, and we haven’t touched the room since.
Design is like that though, isn’t it? Your tastes change. You grow as a person. Your life moves in a different direction.
It is time for a change.
What’s on my hit list?
That mirror needs to go. As does the art and accessories. I still love the wall color and trim. The small sink barely fits into the room, so swapping that out is pretty unrealistic, but perhaps the faucet could go?
So what am I thinking? Embrace the Scandinavian black & white and run with it. New shadow box mirror. New light (brass maybe?) New art (finally getting some of the prints I bought in Denmark and Sweden on the walls?!) and new towel, tp and trash can accessories.
Not a big project by any means, but one that will put me back to a style I love. Out with the glam, and in with our Scandinavian industrial vibe.
Guess I’ll be making a trip to Ikea, Mjolk and CB2 next weekend. Oh, and I will be doing this all on pretty much NO budget. Wish me luck!
What design trend are you over? Have a room in your house that needs a facelift, fast?
