It's been awhile since I featured a shabby chic or country bathroom design on
Todaloos. I think this one is a nice mix of both styles.
I like the change in floor materials from hardwood pine floors in the vanity area to tiled in the tub and shower zone. Adding the seafoam green tile accent on the floor nicely ties the two parts of the master bathroom together.
What really adds drama to this bathroom is the iridescent shimmery green mosaic tiled fireplace (ok, that description was a bit long), it is just so unexpected and fabulous. It adds the chic factor and creates a gorgeous focal point when peeking into the bathroom.
2 other details I think are great are the window seating and the shade of green on the vanity mirror frame. Using this bright green really makes the room pop. It may sound strange to say, but it makes the vanity area look cleaner (not that it looks dirty, don`t get me wrong!). I think in shabby chic designs or in any design where alot of older pieces of furniture are used, it is always smart to add an element with a touch of glossy paint to give a clean, fresh, lively feel. I am sure there are plenty of people who will disagree with me.
One thing that surprised me is the choice of ceiling lamp. For this bathroom, I would have though a crystal chandelier, maybe with some glass flowers in shades of pink or purple, would have been the choice.
Btw, did you notice how many towels are in this bathroom?! I counted 23 bath towels.
Wouldn`t you love to spend a lazy Sunday pampering yourself in this bathroom? I would.
Notice anything different in this last photo compared to the others?
I think this simple change adds a nice extra design detail to the bathroom. I`ve seen
this technique done a lot in kitchens, but rarely is it used in bathrooms. It looks great here.
So have you spotted the difference?
