and more blah...Before the after photos...here'a a little background as to why it was so blah...
#1--Hubby & I closed on our house exactly 1 month before the wedding. We built a spec home; meaning we got to help with some of the decisions but trying to plan a wedding & pick out paint colors, cabinetry, & countertops was a little stressful at times. Hubby was very little help in this area...supposedly he's color blind--or maybe that's just an excuse? No I'm kidding, he really is. But I digress...We decided on one paint color that would work for the entire house & said we would make changes as we went along!
#2--Another reason for not having the builder paint was that he charged $150 to change colors even if for just one room...I think I'll by my own paint for that!
#3--When we registered for wedding gifts, I just picked something easy & didn't put a whole lot of thought into the color scheme. The master bath definitely became an after thought & also a collection place for some random left over home decor items. It all matched, but wasn't anything amazing!
#4--I struggled with adding color because we have a free-standing shower with a sliding door & thus, no shower curtain. I love shower curtains & the color they can bring to a small space; however, I knew I would never convince Hubby to hang a shower curtain in front of the shower door. There's just something about having to push back a curtain & open a door to use the shower!
#5--I couldn't decide what I wanted to do but knew that it needed to compliment our master bedroom. In this post, I showed a picture of our Master Bedroom . We've still got the standard wall color in there, but I think it works with the color scheme. Maybe one of these days I'll paint the wall behind the bed & the ceiling tray...but not yet!
#6--We were waiting on the right time when it came to finances, it wasn't a hugely expensive project; but I knew it would involve paint supplies, brand new towels, rugs, & accessories so that could add up pretty fast!
And now, without further adieu...our guacamole, chocolate, & white master bathroom!
No more blah! I love the sepia tulip canvas print from Kohl's! I always find such great artwork there for a reasonable price!
More color! I just love it & it makes the room seem so much brighter!
I chose not to paint these walls because it would have been a ton of trim work & I actually really like having just 2 of the walls painted. The green reflects in the mirror which makes it look like I painted a whole lot more than I did. This side just needed some guacamole & chocolate accent pieces!
And now for a closeup of some of the accessories, some are new but most are repurposed with a little splash of color.
I've always had this vase in the corner but I added the white flower stems--the colors blend so well!
Some fun green, white & chocolate decor for the countertop!
