A bathroom inspired by Joanna of Jojotastic.
Earlier this winter I painted our master bathroom while listening to Adele’s newly released album on repeat. Slowly, but surely, I’m tackling one taupe room at a time! At this moment in our life, I use our master bathroom and Cody uses our guest bathroom. I didn’t bother approving color choices with him, as he insists he will share the guest room with future children and guests. This my friends, is the secret to a happy marriage.
Inspired by this One Room Challenge bathroom by JoJotastic, I color-matched Farrow and Ball’s Teresa’s Green for the teal hue. The color is just soft enough where you don’t feel overwhelmed. The color is soothing which helps create a relaxing vibe, which is exactly what I was hoping for in this space. I’m trying to become more of a bath person, lots of candles and a good playlist to help unwind from the day or week’s stress.
We don’t have much in way of linen closets or shelving in our bathrooms, with the exception of under-the-sink storage and drawers. I ordered two acrylic shelves from The Container Store to hold little knick knacks, candles, hairspray, and make-up that I use daily. They don’t take up any space visually and allow me to open up the counter space.
I chose to make my own wooden shelves and brackets from Etsy to put up above the toilet, but this shelf from Target is another affordable option if DIY isn’t your thing. I plan to use these shelves to house extra toilet paper, small plants, a few frames, my hair accessories, sprays and tools, and extra towels. I plan on hanging these shelves this weekend, It’s the last thing I need to do in the space, with the exception of styling all of my belongings. The only hiccup I’ve had in building my own shelves, is that the studs don’t line up with where the brackets will go, so I had to invest in some sturdy wall anchors and hopefully not overcrowd the shelves with heavy items. Fingers crossed, everything stays up!
The way our door is hung, not many rugs fit underneath without getting picked up on the corners and moved every time the door opens, so depending if I’m in the shower or standing by the sink, I move the rug around to accommodate the space until I find a better solution.
The artwork I selected to flank each side of the mirror is from Minted. As I’ve stated before, I love sourcing artwork from Minted, the wide variety between photography and paintings plus the ability to frame all in one click has made shopping for the perfect pieces of art a breeze!
The last item on my list is to invest in a few amber glass dispense bottles to give all bath products a cohesive look! Long term, I’d love to swap out the tile for a faux wood floor (more affordable) and change the light fixtures and mirrors, but I love how even the smallest of cosmetic changes (like paint) and adding a few accessories can make a world of difference!
Here’s a sneak peak from my Instagram:
