Bathrooms are kind of fickle rooms to style and design, don’t you think? Too much, and it looks like you’re trying too hard to distract from the fact that it’s a bathroom. But too little, and it looks like a public facility at a rest stop. To get it juuuuuust right takes a little finesse and more than a little trial and error. This little space, a la Young House Love, hits the nail on the head – wouldn’t you agree? (P.S. Is anyone else dumbfounded that they sprung a move on us?? Go them…)
Let’s talk details…
1…Probably my favorite thing about this space styling wise, is the little monogramed turkish towel. I love the stripes, I love the fringe, I love the big graphic letter – That one magical piece brings the whole room together for me. Is there a different piece that brings it together for you?
2…When it comes to styling a bathroom, you don’t have too many options to play with. You can get fun towels (see point #1), you can play with the art, you can add rugs and maybe a curtain or two and, finally, you can add nice soap. Since the soap is going to be a star player in the functionality of your bathroom, give it a little more thought than just tossing whatever is cheapest into your cart at the grocery store. These savvy homeowners chose a yellow liquid soap to match the vintage tile, and the label itself is a little cleaner and more interesting than your average store brand bottle. Heck, even the black pump plays nicely with the other black and gray accents in the space! It’s the little things…
3…Speaking of that vintage tile, I love how the industrial 50’s sink helps to give the space an intentionally mid-century vibe. If you can’t (or don’t want to) change out the big pieces in your own inhereted bathroom, don’t fight them. In my opinion, you can make just about anything work as long as you find a way to make it feel intentional with colors and textures.
