Here's what I began with:
Peach walls, orange tile and grey floor (although it looks peachy in these photographs...)
I tried painting the walls BM Sundial - that colour works really well with the woodwork and the floors, so it's staying. I brought in yellow accessories and a bookcase that I painted to match the walls:
Better, but still not right.
I found some gorgeous chocolate waffle weave towels that I couldn't resist buying & then my design took off! I spray-painted the laundry hamper and a matching basket with Painter's Touch Espresso in a satin finish. I found a chocolate bathmat. I brought in more chocolate accessories and then I found a beautiful tone-on-tone striped shower curtain in chocolate. I don't like unframed mirrors, so I kept searching for a framed mirror that I liked. I found one on clearance for $30 - it's a bit large, but the colour of the frame is brushed nickel with a yellow detail that matches the paint exactly.
So here is the before again:
and here are the afters:
|yes, those lights are really ugly...|
|Basket of goodies and extra fresh, fluffy towels|
|Chocolate scented candles|
|Green Tea Olive Oil Soap from France, a pretty lantern I got from Avon and a basket I love that I've had forever.|
