After our bathroom ceiling started peeling last spring, Jeff and I decided a facelift was in order. So far, we’ve “facelifted” the ceiling, walls, vanity and counter trim (goodbye old oak) and I plan to paint the baseboards and window casings tomorrow. I think it looks brighter and fresher, but somehow still incomplete.
After waffling back and forth between bamboo and roman blinds, the cheapskate in me won out. Roman blinds it will be. Because the bathroom is right off our front entrance, I think it makes most sense to use the same fabric for both. Hence, my dilemma. Neutral? Bright? Black and white?
Here are my four finalists. Votes, suggestions and opinions are most welcome!
pretty boring, huh?!?!
Option #1 Safe, neutral and a much better match to the bathroom than appears in my bad photoshop. It also matches pretty well with the light beachy feel of the kitchen and living room. AND… it’s a really good quality designer fabric on clearance for $3 a yard. Cheap yes… but also not quite right?
Option #2 This fabric has been one of my favourites for a long time. It’s so cheery and happy- but is it better suited to a kids playroom than the front entrance? It’s also a pretty big pattern that might get lost on a small window.
Option #4 I love Amy Butler’s retro fabrics and have not used one in my home…. yet. I wonder if this might be a good compromise on all fronts, leading both into the grey master bedroom across the hall and ahead into the blue, white and green kitchen.
The plan for the master bedroom (also off the front entrance… weird, I know) is a mix of grey, white and black. The furniture is in place but the pillows and curtains are still lying by a heap beside my sewing machine. Here is my photo board plan to help with a visual until the real thing is complete.
