ONE ROOM CHALLENGE | WEEK three
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall...
It's so exciting to see this bad boy on the wall! Finally. I've been lusting after this mirror for a long, long time. And I'm very happy with it in here. What do you guys think? And I was able to get it using a friend's and family discount. Score.
We also switched out the toilet seat to one in black. I love the vintage vibe it gives. Now if only I could throw in some penny tile and marble. (Speaking of marble did you see the gorgeous slab that Abby has picked out for her bathroom? So gorgeous.) Anyhow, back to my bathroom...Here's the new black seat. Ignore the gross calk line. It's on my to-do list :\
The new towels are here too! I bought Turkish foutas with black and white stripes (of course!). And some new hand towels with even bigger stripes. We have the same hand towels in the front bathroom, but in yellow, and I just love them. I decided not to get them digitally printed this time, since I didn't think it would stand out that much on the slate stripe. These cute little black trimmed washcloths are a copycat of the Gotham towel line which I adore. The black trim totally makes it, AND I bought two washcloths on sale for only $3 each.
Also another fun change was updating the towel hooks. I thought these adorable little bow hooks added a little bit of whimsy, instead of the classic brass robe hooks we had before. I also have a little more planned for these hooks, so stay tuned.
Now we come to my dilemma of the day. You all have seen the vintage rug I've been using as a bath mat. I actually love it! But I wasn't sure if it would work since it's kind of a bluish-gray. So I ordered this black zig zag mat thinking it might mesh better. Right now I'm not loving either of them. It's hard to decide because I plan to hang a bunch of things on the walls. I think I'll wait to decide which one I like the most after the art is up. Or maybe I should go in another direction all together?
Here's my dream rug. It was listed on Etsy for $345 (ouch!), but it looks like that seller closed their account, so now all I have left is this picture of it. Sad. It probably would have been too much for the space anyways...right? right? Moving on.
I think this rug would look amazing, but at $85, it's still out of the price range unfortunately.
And same with this one at $140.
This one might work and the price is right.
What do you guys think? Any suggestions for me?
