There is one room in our home that I have changed my mind over and over and over again about... it's the guest bathroom. At first I was thinking neutral gray and white striped walls.. then I thought I wanted to do lots of orange, maybe even orange stripes. I guess I never got started on it because I couldn't fully commit.
Well, as I mentioned earlier the time has come to finally put tile in our bathrooms and I'm nailing down some final plans.
Here is my inspiration for our guest bath from Timothy Whealon:
Yup, totally neutral and all whites & creams. I've probably lost half of you who are thinking BORING!!!! Well, what can I say... I love an all white bathroom!
I have a small budget to work with for updating both of the bathrooms upstairs so I am keeping all of the big items for now. Who knows, maybe later down the road I will replace the countertops, or maybe I won't. There is currently a cream faux marble countertop in the bathrooms and I don't hate it.
Anyway, here is the design board for the guest bath:
White Dove by Benjamin Moore on the walls (a very soft creamy white). A bright white semi-gloss paint on the vanity and trim. And I think I'll bring the same tile that's currently in our laundry room upstairs into the guest bath with light gray grout. I want a very organic/linen-y shower curtain. I'm considering this one from Restoration Hardware maybe in Ivory or Fog (I still need to look at them).
So that's where I am with the guest bath! I'm going to look at tile tomorrow and start pricing out the floors. I can't wait to have these two rooms done! They are definitely our home's dirty little secret right now... wait until you see the before pictures!
