One Room Challenge | Week 1

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?

    1. Thanks Kris! I know, right? How can you go wrong with the black/white/brass trifecta?!

  1. This is going to be awesome!!! So excited to watch it come together! Love all the inspiration! (PS My dining room has the JA big sister to your light! πŸ™‚ Great taste!) Good luck!

    1. Thanks Colleen. It's great to hear that someone has faith in that sink πŸ˜‰ I'm going to do my best!

    1. Thanks Albertina! Yep, I had to get a little creative in order to get a little Jonathan Adler to fit in here πŸ˜‰ lol

  3. I was about to say…love the bathroom already but I think the direction you are going will be a home run! Nobody loves black and white more than me:)

    1. Thanks and thanks! I think the B&W will make me a much happier camper in the end πŸ™‚ B&W is definitely my happy place πŸ˜‰

  4. I really love what you've already done so I can't wait to see where you take it next. Great inspiration images! That Jonathan Adler sconce needs to come to my house…I'm already imagining where it could go!

  5. Fantastic! I've loved that sconce for some time and seeing it sideways is so fun. This will be a great example of how a designer can take a space from good to great. I can't wait to see it!

  6. 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!!

    1. I think I'm keeping the counter actually! I'm going to try and blend it in with lots of other goodies πŸ™‚

  7. Yey Reichel!!!! I'm so glad you joined the ORC, your such a great designer dear and for sure I'll be checking along your progress! love your mood board by the way!

  8. Already a fan of what you have accomplished pre-ORC but I am living for your new b + w plan! Going to be awesome.

  9. whoa. your starting point might be my done. off to a great start! so many of your inspiration pics are my faves as well. it's going to look amaze!

    1. Ha! It's not that bad I agree, but it's never felt "done" to me. So hopefully it will at the end of the ORC!

  10. So glad to see you as part of the ORC!! Love the inspiration images…looking forward to following along and seeing how the room turns out.
