Master Bath Redesign...WC
For the minuscule WC off this master bath, I designed a bold "wallpaper" that is being painted on the walls. It would have been easy to ignore such a small space, but when given this bit of special treatment it becomes a great little surprise off the main room.
The "wallpaper" was designed to coordinate with the Thomas Paul fabric used on the chair's seat cushions. The pattern is being hand painted in a rich brown over walls that have been painted with a gorgeous striae effect. These layers give the walls texture and dimension. For the ceiling I mixed a gold metallic paint into Devine Color's Cocoa paint, for a shimmering bronze result. The idea is to have the ceiling glow from the light of the Jonathan Adler light fixture to be hung...in place of the room's recessed light fixture. (I couldn't pass up another opportunity to pull out a recessed light!!) Finally, the window treatment will be a grass cloth roman shade, same as the treatments used on the master bath windows. It may take awhile, but I will post photos when this space is complete.
Next time...the vanity mirror frame ordered from Mirror Mate was shipped today! So, very soon the master bath will be complete and I'll post final photos!
