Step this way to the bathroom...........
I replaced the door with this door, ( a long story about the floor levels being raised after the tiling and me planning the door down a tad too much, because the use of big boy power tools really is fun). The door is actually a front door but how retro does it look. I haven't painted as yet as I was thinking of painting it the colour of the prima that it is.
The bathroom is tight, therefore I needed to keep the fixtures functional,using less area, to give an illusion of spaciousness. The pedestal basin worked very well as did the retro inspired bevelled mirror.
Storage for cosmetics and personal care items is a small problem but a trip to Ikea and Freedom will have it sorted. I just need to live in the space for a few days and work out what where storage is needed.
The colour is a Resene paint 'Onepoto' it's a very fresh turquoise colour, I wouldn't use it at home but for the beach house it had the beachy retro feel I wanted. The shower screen I bought as a flat pack and it was relatively easy to install, with a few screws drilling it to the floor and wall and then loads of silicone sealer, a trip to the Nail Spa and presto! I spy a Tiki.
The bathroom wasn't quite big enough for me to get a better photograph of this happy little Tui Bird wall sticker. I won this fabulous little bit of Kiwiana over at the lovely Juliet's blog Tartankiwi. I was so excited when I won this giveaway, I new this quirky and brightly designed wall sticker would have a very special place to live one day, and I can't think of anywhere more special then the fibro bach! Pop on over and visit Stickytikis you'll love the many quirky and fun designed wall stickers as much as I do.
One question......After a few visits to the bathroom, I feel the door should be painted white to create the illusion of space. I love the colour as it is (Dulux, Emerald Haze) I love how the outside of the door jumps out next to the orange and pink stripe. Is it too Much?
Should I paint the inside white and the outside Emerald Haze?
This week I'm thinking of a rug for the lounge floor......I was thinking an animal skin!
