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.
We were left with a ton of wall space, especially along this wall, which is opposite our two 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. I 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.
What do you think? Today, I added a piece of modern art along the shower wall to keep it from looking too formal. I still need to change out the frame with a simple wooden floater frame.
Here’s another view along the new mirror wall.
Finally, here’s another shot of the other side of the bathroom. There are two vanities along this wall.
At some point, I’d like to change out the lighting above the vanity, and then I think we’ll be done in here. Now I just need to find the time to actually relax in the tub someday. After four years in this house, the kids are the only ones who ever use it!
