I am always interested in what motivates someone’s design choices. I have some old standbys that I use to inspire: Architectural Digest, House Beautiful and Coastal Living. I also browse Pinterest, Instagram and HOUZZ frequently for ideas. But, it is the unexpected things that inspire a design choice that are my favorite.
At the end of January, I stood in our master bathroom and declared it dated (see here).
Maybe the subzero temperatures and snow had me a little itchy. Ok, very itchy. For a new project.
To save money and construction headaches, I kept the existing floor and wall tile in the bathroom. The wall tile was fine. The floor tile I inherited and did NOT like. So I had to figure that out.
The doors, trim and ceiling all got a fresh coat of Farrow and Ball paint in the color Pointing.
Nope. Looked completely ridiculous with the floor.
So I chose a textured neutral from Philip Jeffries in Snowfall that looks fab.
The new Strande pulls from Restoration Hardware looked great too!
The (dusty) ruffled curtains across the French doors went away. In their place, a modern Grassweave roller shade from The Shade Store in Oatmeal.
