This is the only room in our cottage that we completely gutted and renovated. Previously, this was a 1980's era, pink and forest green bath. Now it has a simple, elegant feel with pale blue walls and white trim, with a bit of sand color mixed in for contrast.
The wall trim is white, but the cabinetry under the sink is cream-colored, to keep the room from feeling too stark. The mixture of tones also furthers the cottage style feeling of the rest of the house. This bathroom couldn't look TOO new or it would make the other rooms look dingy!
These glass shelves with green edges mimic the shower doors (below). There is just a tiny countertop around the sink, so the shelves provide a welcome spot to store hairspray and toiletries.
Double towel bars provide space for all of our wet things, and half-shutters allow the breeze in but maintain privacy (especially because the houses are set very close together in this neighborhood).
I chose natural tones for the shelf decor, to warm up the room. The glass vase on top is actually filled with rope napkin rings and shells!
Three more hooks on the back of the door hold wet towels - we seem to generate quite a few of those.
The shower is tiled with white subway tile, inset with glass mosaic tile in shades of sea green and blue. Five relief tiles that look like they are made of sand feature sea creatures including a horseshoe crab, seahorse, and more.
The natural color scheme, above, is livened up with a few pops of bright blue. The small watercolors were done by a local artist (and found at Art in the Park), as was the hand-painted trash can featuring hydrangeas.
Our downstairs bathroom is too small to get a good photo of it. We replaced the sink in this room (see below) with a vintage-looking piece. The previous sink was set in a cheap cabinet and had cracked.
The color scheme here is dark blue and white, from the 1940's style tile floor, to the seashell print on the shower curtain and window valance.
