Existing North Wall


I posted Sarah’s Mood Board yesterday, but I thought I would break it out in a little more detail, and show the different options we considered.

The Backstory:
Sarah is all ready to renovate her bathroom. She even has a contractor lined up and due to start in about 3 weeks. One problem, she hasn’t picked any of the fixtures or finishes! With a deadline looming she called me to help her.

The Guidelines:

-Stay within the budget

-Select products that are readily available & fit the space

-Create a unified appearance that blends with the rest of the 110 year old Victorian House

-Maintain a neutral backdrop with small pops of colors and texture

-Maintain storage for the 3 ladies using the space

-Choose finishes & pieces that are easy to clean

-Choose affordable but fun artwork

-Find a better way to hang towels (so they don’t end up on the floor)

-Find a way to hide the hairdryer

-Decide whether the existing linen closet should stay or be replaced

In the next post I will discuss vanities since it was the first piece selected and it will help to define the style of the bathroom and also it is also critical for storage.
