that's it!


Ah ha! That's it. The look I'm going for in my new master bath. Would you believe I found a gray french style piece almost exactly like this one for my vanity...? I'm also saving up a stash of nudes by a local artist for my bath and bedroom.  

I'm not sure about wallpaper, though. I think I'll paint instead.

And I'll put a mirror over the vanity. It took me a couple of looks before I realized....there's no mirror over this vanity.....

have a wonderful weekend...

No mirror over the vanity could be a good thing for me first thing in the morning! Robx

I'd love to know what that wall paper is, it's beautiful - unless the design is painted onto the wall?

love the wall treatment! do you think it's paper or paint?

I think nudes would be fabulous in a master bath!

the no mirro looks great, but seems a little odd!

happy weekend!

gorgeous lav, Donna...love the wallpaper, but if you paint the walls with a lime wash you can still get a similar "feel" ..it will be stunning...
I almost posted today with images for the lav in the house I'm working on....but I posted on art instead...
let us know how it turns out...

PG.....VERY pretty. I acquired 3 nudes over fifteen years, and have finally had them framed and hung in my master bath. It was worth the wait. Have a terrific weekend......k

That's great.

Sounds perfect. I love the vintage chest as a vanity... we painted our powder room a lovely deep gray and did a high gloss finish on it, which reflects the light from a little chandelier and vintage sconce just beautifully. I think you would love it.
Have a lovely weekend!

Hmm. Curious there's no mirror. Maybe they weren't finished yet? Otherwise, I love it - great inspiration. Happy Weekend!

I think you're completely right to paint and put a mirror up instead. The wallpaper seems to be fighting with this design. Sounds like a gorgeous bathroom in the works!

Lovely!

Charlotta Ward said...

I love this look Donna!
It feels timeless and classic, yet current. You could almost use a 'chalkboard paint' as your base and add the detail in washed down & matted acrylic and then seal the wall with a matte/matting varnish.
I love this and will definitely keep it in my treasure chest of inspiration.

Oh, it's going to look lovely when you're done - great inspiration pic!

I've been mirrorless in my master for three months. I know...crazy! Not intentional, but I'm getting kinda used to it! Maybe we'd all be happier with ourselves if we didn't study ourselves in the mirror so much. ;)

Happy weekend!

A mirror on that style of vanity would look great...

For sure, it will look gorgeous when you're done:)

The Zhush said...

Can not wait to see your "afters"...you will post these...right?:)

Gretchen O. said...

I would rather look at the wallpaper than myself in the morning anyway:) Such a great find with the vanity...can't wait to see the results!

penelopebianchi said...

Wow! Girls who are afraid of mirrors?!?

It is puzzling!

That bathroom (looks like Gracie or De Gournay wallpaper (which is hand painted) to me! Of course, there will be a mirror over the sink! It isn't finished!
Maybe old mercury mirror glass......or a pretty frame with "antiqued mirror" in it! Nothing too glaring.
When you go to the powder room (which this looks like) don't you want to be able to check if you have spinach in your teeth? I sure do! And solid walls instead of that tracery of vines? Why? There is not window......so create a garden in the four walls!

that wallpaper is gorgeous! And you could paint it yourself!
A mirror is a necessity! (it just isn't finished yet!)

Just my opinion!

This is starting to scare me!!!

you got to do the wall paper!!
