I know what you're thinking already...Ooooohh a pink bathroom, how chic and sophisticated and so "now".
First, I have to admit, I've been pretty smitten with pink lately and I wouldn't consider myself a pink person. For instance, this image below from the most recent House Beautiful is the perfect amount of pink for me. It's gorgeous, actually. I love how it's balanced by neutrals but still so feminine at the same time.
Little did we know that when we bought our house, we were so ahead of trend.
Take a look at our bathroom as it looked when we bought our home...
Ok, so what do we have here...pink vinyl curtains (that were probably hand-made as the former owner was quite the seamstress). Pink wallpaper - not so much. Pink tile on the floor - not horrible but needed to go. Pink and maroon tile - not my ideal color combo. And yes, on the right hand side of the picture, that is a sliding wooden accordian style door (for the bathroom? really?!) Oh, and don't forget the floor to ceiling trapeze-style towel rack.
Also, if you've been reading this blog for a little while, do you notice any items in this photo that you may have seen before?
We thought the sink was in great shape, so we saved it in the hopes of re-using it someday in the basement bathroom - and that's just what we did.
Check back tomorrow and I'll show you some more photos of this bathroom renovation.
What are some of your favorite color combos that you changed up in your home?
