A Master Bathroom Update Embraces the Dark Side (Before and After)

A Master Bathroom Update Embraces the Dark Side (Before and After)-design addict mom
I think I am taking this nesting thing next level, I mean no room is safe from my disapproving eyes or the relentless urge to have everything "just right" before baby number 3 comes. Recently, my disapproving glare decided it had enough of the Master bathroom bathed in cream. Seriously, cream walls do not belong in my home so I set to work diminishing all memory of these walls and embraced the dark side with my new paint color, Benjamin Moore Iron Mountain.

Here's an iphone snap to show the before. It looks so dingy:(.  I chose the Iron Mountain because I love how it complemented the brushed nickel finishes that I currently have in here and it makes the white molding and marble tiles pop.

I also love how the paint color picks up on the pretty wallpaper in the commode area.  Now when I come in here, my eyes are happy:-).  xx

This Artist's Home Does Not Disappoint

That pink wall is the perfect backdrop for the gallery wall- design addict mom

           'The owners are both artists. They have quite wild tastes and they love strong colours,' says Beata Heuman, the interior designer of this wondrous home.  'I was told by the wife that her childhood dream was to have a house with a series of rooms each with its own distinct personality - Chinese, Japanese, American and so on. That would have been too much, but I did want to give the house variation and changes of mood.' This inversion of the usual dynamic - clients requiring encouragement to embrace bold decorative concepts - was an early characteristic of the project. 'It is one thing looking at something and thinking it is cool. It is very different living with it,' says Beata. 'I wanted the house to be fun and uplifting, but also comfortable and not too "full on".'

          I would say mission accomplished! This home is such a visual delight...

According to the weatherman, we have a cool down headed our way and by a cool down, I mean we will be in the 80's instead of the 100's.  So this weekend,  I am looking forward to slathering myself in some kind of mosquito repellant and spending more time outdoor. Hence today's post- such fabulous outdoor spaces!
