We chose a color called 'natural linen'. I couldn't help myself. The name alone...........ya know? Some of my husbands clients had some leftover wall treatment that they gave to us. It is not wallpaper, but it doesn't seem to be fabric either. (??) It is very nice so we decided to do an accent wall with it. My husband (the artsy- architect) couldn't just cover a wall with it.
Nope,...that didn't give it enough design interest.
Can't let anything be simple.
So I had to be patient as he cut it into perfect one foot squares and individually pasted them to the wall alternating the texture for a checker board effect. I am soo glad that I was patient. It turned out beautiful. He was right,...so right!! You can see just a corner of the accent wall in the next picture.
We switched out our shiny silver light fixture for a very inexpensive but much better looking brushed nickel fixture from Home Depot.
Couldn't help myself........had to buy that really cute little ruffled towel from Target. I know.........but it was my only real "splurge".
Re-used the art that had already been in there before. I did repaint a few of the frames that were ivory colored to a truer white so that they would stand out better against the now much lighter walls.
It is bright and happy,.........I love it now. A big thank you to the hubby for all of his hard work. He is a really good sport! (although,...I don't think he was a huge fan of the red bathroom to begin with. :))
I am going to link this up to Frugal Friday at the Shabby Nest.
