I don’t know what you’ll think when I tell you this little story.
When I write it down it sounds pretty crazy even to me! But here goes…
8 years ago we bought a beautiful home here in Florida. The decorating was ‘not to our taste’ but the house was almost new and the layout, size and location was perfect! It was even painted lavender on the outside…PERFECT.
Well, the first thing we did was remove every strip of wallpaper in the whole house.(Even though the house was fairly new, the décor looked like something from the ‘70s!)
We had the mauve carpet ripped up and professionals came in and painted most of the rooms a neutral color and new carpet was installed.
So here’s the funny thing….once the wallpaper was down and the bathroom walls were ‘plain white’….I was able to live with it.
FOR. EIGHT. YEARS!
(this was taken when the original owners lived here)
This is the OLD wallpaper!
We got busy doing other things and a blue bathroom moved down to the bottom of the list.
This summer my hubby got the ‘painting bug’ and gave me my dream bathroom!
And guess what? It’s BLUE…the perfect shade of stormy slate blue!
We decided to keep the brass fixtures for now and not do anything major. (it’s an L shaped bath)

Well, hopefully the light fixture will move to the TOP of the list!
