When we first moved into our house last year, I hated the wall color in the guest bathroom. The original owners had decorated it for their little girls, and they had juvenile wall decals stuck all over … which thankfully peeled off easily. I was set on the idea of repainting the bathroom, but over the past year, the pinkish-coral color has really grown on me. I think it looks pretty with the dark green marble sinks and the light cabinets, so I decided to go with the pink walls and add some decor to spruce it up. I’m in love with how it turned out!
I picked up this silk orchid plant from Marshalls to set on the ledge between the sinks and mirrors. Of course, I’d rather have real flowers in here, but this room gets zero natural light.
Chris took this photo of a chameleon peony on our weekend trip to Madison, Indiana last May. I used Shutterfly to print it in a 20×30 size, but trimmed it down a little to fit this 18×24 frame that I picked up from Hobby Lobby (with a 40% off coupon!).
This towel rack/shelf combo from Target was in the bathroom at our old apartment. I included a mix of decorative and practical items on the shelves, including a vase, candles, cotton balls in a depression glass jar, fragrances, and cotton swabs and flossing picks in cleaned out candle jars (get my tutorial on how to clean out candle jars here!)
I hung this photo on the other side of the doorway to balance out the shelves. It was also taken on our trip to Madison last year. I got the frame at Michaels, where they have an awesome buy-one-get-one-free deal on all photo frames right now!
After getting the bathroom all glammed up, I’m totally happy with keeping the pink walls … for the time being, at least. It’s amazing what some wall art and decorative touches can do to a space!
PS – On a completely unrelated note, if you live in Indiana — or happen to love Indiana — the head over to United State of Indiana for their $100 online shopping spree giveaway! They have a fun collection of Indiana and Indianapolis-themed tees, tanks, and more (I’m dying over the 317 area code onesie!). They focus on keeping things high quality and local … and they’re pretty awesome. I myself have already entered … and have started making my wish list, in case I win 😉
