A MODERN, COSY DUPLEX – PART 3, MASTER BATH AND A BONUS
Guys, I had great plans to upload this blog a week after I shared the last one, in which I showed you the master bedroom. I don’t know what happened. Life, I guess? And procrastination. And trying to decide whether to redesign the blog or not, saying I would do it, and even speaking with the designer discussing some ideas, then deciding it could wait because it wasn’t urgent and I could do other things with the money I’d put aside for that. I ended up using the money to buy a chair I didn’t need, but which made me so happy that it was worth it. Now here we are, two months later. But I’m not even mad. That chair is beautiful, have a look at it here.
This bathroom was my second ever attempt at styling a bathroom, which I usually avoid because I find them quite difficult to style. I tried to do my bathroom once and my DIY attempt backfired so badly I’m still living with horrible black and white walls which for some reason I am yet to paint over. It’s like a case of masochism, because I every time I look up I gag, but still, I do nothing.
Anyway, here’s what it looked like before.
It’s very different from the look we went for in the bedroom and living room, but I really wanted to experiment with natural tones to bring some warmth into the space, so I went for custom, unstained, wooden shelving and lots of browns and whites. I also tried to incorporate some texture using baskets, towels and accessories.
I ended up doing the same for the guest bathroom, partly because I was too scared to try something different, and partly because I had no idea what I could do in the first place.
Do I think these are the cutest bathrooms I’ve ever seen? No. But I like the simplicity and functionality, and the fact that the client was very happy and didn’t think I wasted her money.
Plus looking at these pictures again is making me want to do my bathroom ASAP. Maybe that’s what I’ll be blogging about next – if only I could figure out where people buy consistency so that I can purchase one big fat portion of that and start blogging every two weeks. Pray for me y’all.
