Don't get me wrong,
I am not opposed to wallpaper.
There are some beautiful designers
that create exceptional images and patterns to adorn our walls with.
One of my favourites is Candice Olson,
her wallpaper is stunning and can be sourced through York Wallcoverings
Candice uses this one in her office.
However, the wallpaper in the master bath of our home
unfortunately did not have the same appeal.
It may have in another era,
and although I knew a complete bathroom overhaul
was not in the budget - (we had a house to hardwood, popcorn ceilings to remove, pot lights to go up,
a basement to finish, rooms to furnish and style and YES the styling was happening no matter what!)
this wallpaper of ours had to go.
To keep or not to keep was not a question,
nor was anyone winning the argument on the removal
of the wall to wall mirrors.
Yes- I understand I was removing a mirror to put up a mirror
but you understand - don't you?
The mirrors had to go too.
Next were the light fixtures,
window treatments (I have no words for those)
For anyone looking to update a room,
remember paint is magical.
It can transform a area with the stroke of a brush.
Although we did not demolish and rebuild this bathroom,
I am definitely pleased with the results.
Now all I need is my Ipod,
matches to light my favourite Joe Malone candle
and lots of bubbles for the bath.
