Inspiration

Our guest bathroom slash Avery's bathroom is blah. Boring. Bland. Lifeless.

The walls are still white (well, White Duck to be precise), the rugs are cream, the shower curtain is all kinds of neutral, even the towels are just brown.


But wait. The plunger is yellow. And it has been used a total of never. And I threw a colored Kleenex box in there for kicks and giggles.

Kleenex and plunger aside, the bathroom is screaming for color. Or something. I just couldn't decide what to do with it.

My go to color has always been red. I love red. It's vibrant and full of life. It makes me happy. My living room and kitchen are both red-based.

But recently I'm loving greens. They're fresh and clean. Our bedroom and Avery's room both are green and brown. Our study is zebra print and lime green. Man, I'm predictable.

And I've always loved blue but have never attempted to use it in home decor.

So I told Matt that I want color in there, and I want it to be sophisticated but kid-friendly. Not that Avery even cares what her bathroom looks like, but she will. I think.

Enter my inspiration piece. Love.

The lighting is bad since I took the picture in the hallway and had to turn off the flash because of the glare (duh). But you get the idea.

Light blue + sage green + coral + cream = revelation.

I'm thinking blue on the walls with coral accents (i.e. towels), and I'll keep the existing shower curtain and add some other accent pieces as well to tie in the other colors. The picture will go where the worthless existing towel rack is hanging. I'll spray paint the other towel rack, and I'll paint the cabinet over the toilet. The ideas are going berserk in my head, but at least now I have some direction.

Ah, I feel better already.
