My Bathroom is Trying to Tell Me Something.

At the moment I am focusing on two rooms in our apartment. The master bedroom still needs a chair re-upholstered and new window dressings and the study needs a new sofa bed, lighting and also window dressings. The hold up on this comes down to one big factor, money. Like a lot of people we do not have an limitless budget.

Which is fine, Rome wasn’t built in a day!!!

So imagine my shock and slight horror when I woke up to this!!!!!

My bathroom has started to drop hints, big hints, that it needs some attention. Ok so the toilet system was already dripping,  The Fella tried to fix it but to no avail. And now this!!!

To be fair, this room has received the least amount of attention in the whole apartment, aside from a few paint jobs, nothing else, nada. I try and add some styling just to make some effort but really it needs more. Obviously the bathroom agrees and has started to shed its old fixtures and fittings..

We are so eager to renovate the bathroom and laundry, but we just aren’t ready just yet. Mentally or financially.

But I guess these things happen, at least we can still use the room!!!!

So we are now in the early stages of thinking about a bathroom reno. I kind of have an idea as to the look I am going for. As we live in a warehouse conversion, the layout of our apartment means the bathroom does not have access to a window and so no natural light source. This is a major consideration in the finishes I choose. I want to feel clean and crisp and bright but not sterile.

The materials I have in mind are:

White subway tiles (same as kitchen)
White marble vanity tops
Timber cabinetry
Grey slate tile flooring

To tie in with the rest of the apartment splashes of brass (lighting, accessories and mirror).

As usual I turned to my favourite resource for ideas and inspiration, Pinterest.

Here are some my picks:

I love the clean simplicity of these designs created by the materials and fixings.

Exactly the kind of look I am after. I have been given the nod from my client (The Fella) to start putting my design pitch together and I will make my presentation soon.

Fingers crossed he signs off on the design and we can start to get the ball rolling.

Stick around and follow the design journey!!
