Small bathroom update

Over the weekend, I made a few small changes to our master bathroom. I love our bathroom, but it’s proved a little challenging to decorate. We have vaulted ceilings and a freestanding bathtub that sits basically in the center of the room.

Since moving in, we’ve had built-in storage added between the two windows in the room, painted existing cabinets white (and changed out the doors to be inset), and painted the existing vanities.

The previous owners had a towel rack here, but we never used it because it is not particularly close to the shower. A neighbor was selling this very large, ornate mirror (it’s 45″ x 55″), so I thought it might look good along this large wall. DSC_0013I like that it’s large and takes up a lot of visual space. It’s unique as well – it’s actually upholstered, which you don’t see very often. It seems to complement the olive green painted vanities  and dark wood mirrors across the room from it. I also painted an armoire the same color green as the bathroom vanities (Annie Sloan chalk paint), as you can see in the picture below.
