The Black Bathroom - An Update

Friday, October 22, 2010


 My schedule has been a bit hectic as of late, but alas, a moment to order a shower curtain.  Nothing fancy, just an extra long one from Target in white.  So many of you have asked about the black bathroom so I thought I would share the inspiration board that I made to stay focused.


And here is a peek at the actual bathroom.  Hopefully soon I will be sharing the rest.

I hope that each and every one of you has a wonderful weekend.  We are starting our weekend off with home made pizzas and family.  Then we are off to Chapel Hill for a swim meet.  So happy to be with family again after a couple of weekends away.

  3. Oh, looking very interesting, love the tile on your inspiration board! My favorite bathrooms are old baths one could find in a prewar building with hexagon tile and the likes. This look reminds me of those. Please show more soon and enjoy your weekend! Janell

  4. The tile on the inspiration board isn't exactly like our tile, but close. I couldn't find than exact match to work with.

  8. I'm eagerly awaiting the big reveal! Your little 'tease' is lovely. Having just finished my own major bathroom remodel, I understand the feeling that everything must be 'just so' before you show it to the whole world.

    Hey, that's my floor on your inspiration board!

  30. You have this amazing ability to pull things together that I would have never thought of. The bathroom is looking very cool so far with what you have done already. I get so excited seeing your idea boards and how you bring them to life.
    Good luck at the swim meet in lovely Chapel Hill:)
