ONE ROOM CHALLENGE | week one
The Master Bathroom

So here we are, at the starting line. I finally let the cat out of the bag: My ORC is my master bathroom. Ahh the ole' master bath. I never really had a vision for this space. I started decorating it as an after-thought and that's why it always kind of looked like one. Here's where she is now:






This is what it looks like everyday; definitely not the eye sore we started with when we moved in a little over a year ago (see pic below), but she's no beauty queen either.

Since then, we've given her an all-over paint job and some new jewelry (aka hardware) all on a tight budget. BUT we definitely have a ways to go. Of course I'd love to gut the space and start over, but we're renters, so we can't spend a ton of money. I have never taken the time to actually decide what I wanted this space to look like, so as of now that's going to change. The only real knock-outs right now are the Jonathan Adler light fixture from Lamps Plus and the vintage rug.

Shall we check out the inspiration I'm using for master bath 2.0?

Here's my updated design board.



The color theme will be black and white (what else?) with brass. I love a touch of vintage which helps add uniqueness to any space. And don't forget a graphic and contrasty pattern to make a statement. I'll also be adding in a gallery wall; a makeover wouldn't be a makeover without a gallery wall, now would it? I seriously can't wait to see how it turns out!

Now go check out all the other One Room Challenge talents and see what they're up to. It definitely makes for some good hump day reading, don't you think?

  18. Love this. I JUST- as in on Monday- painted our Master Vanity. Atlantic by Jeff Lewis. Perhaps my favorite color of all time!! That said, if you are keeping your vanity- I would LOVE to get some insight on getting a new countertop for it!? Both of our bathrooms need new vanities and I am just not sure where to start- Home Depot? Perhaps a left over from a kitchen countertop store? No idea. Would love some input. And just to join you- our guest bath counter looks VERY similar!!
