Here's the new room without a lick of decor before I moved anything back in. I really couldn't be happier with the crisp, white tile and the light gray grout. I really think having that darker grout will make this shower look fresh and clean longer than if I'd chosen white grout.
|This was also the perfect time to upgrade the plumbing fixture to brushed nickel. The new bath spout actually pours into the tub and not out onto the lip--like it did before because the spout was too short.|

So with a white bathroom, there are so many directions I could go with the decor. For now, the room is for guests so I want it to be a calm, peaceful, clean place. But, knowing how I love color, I couldn't just go plain. I chose this painting, by our real estate agent and friend, Cheryl Sartain, as my inspiration for the space. I'll keep it all fairly clean with white and tan, but there will be purposeful pops of black and orange.
|These are just a few items I've gathered so far. I always love to put necessities in the bath for guests. The shower also holds some soap and shampoos.|
I think I'm going to have to leave this room alone for a few months. It would be so easy for me to rip out the toilet, mirror, lights and medicine cabinet. But I'm hitting the pause button...for now.
What do you think of the results?
