Yes! The work on the master bath was completed today with the installation of the mill work framing the vanity mirror. (From Mirror Mate at www.mirrormate.com, Mediterra/Glazed Earth). It's remarkable the impact adding this frame has had on the room. This once generic plate glass mirror has become a gorgeous feature of the bath, looking like a very expensive and large custom hanging mirror. It is a great finishing touch.
Finally, a few final accessories were brought in. A basket for towels, soap dishes that follow the lines of the sinks, candles and a little adorable bird I found while sourcing fabric at Calico Corner. Because...what bathroom is complete without a gold bird!? It brings in a bit of whimsical personality, completing the final goals for the room. The aim of this redesign was to infuse the room with a wonderful sense of style, a bit of whimsy and drama, through decorating. I think the redesign has been a great success! I love the final result. Looking back at the 'before' photo I think it is amazing how a room can be transformed through creative decorating, when a remodel does not make sense.
Next time, how to make decisions like a pro when shopping...but most importantly... Have a wonderful Holiday Season!
