Bathroom Inspiration

Happy Friday, everyone!

I have been enjoying some unusually warm March weather-maybe you have been too! I love being able to open all the windows, eat outside and let the boys get out all their wild energy. It also makes me excited for my bathroom paint redo.

We have lived in this house a little over a year and I haven't been able to decide on colors for the upstairs bath, but thanks to Better Homes and Gardens, I have officially been inspired by some of their beautiful ideas. Right now, my bathroom had been painted icy blue with dark blue ceilings (not a huge fan)  but since I wanted to focus on repainting the dining, living and our bedroom, I decided to pace myself and wait until this summer.

I am sure I will now be doing pale walls with bright pops of tangerine-have you heard it's Pantone's "Color of the Year?

I am in love with this color as an accent and I want to do some wall art similar to the one shown in this picture. I don't have a before pic of my bath, but that will come sometime down the road,
it does looks similar to this one with the beadboard walls. I have an old garage sale mirror I plan on revamping and installing in my bath. Hope you enjoy my inspiration too!

love the pops of orange against pale walls

So, once I'm off my "maternity leave" of bigger projects, sometime in May or June I will be buying paint, installing a new mirror and getting my hubby to change the lighting and door, which is really old. It is fun to dream up ideas--can't wait to show you my finished bathroom!

Have a great weekend everyone!
