Bathroom styles have sure changed over the years. When you consider the attention to detail shown by 60’s era trim carpenters, this mirror/medicine cabinet combo is really quite decorative…but dated. It was time for a change.
The resulting change for this bathroom wasn’t just cosmetic. It was a top-to-bottom overhaul which included removing a wall, taking much of the room down to the studs, building a custom vanity, new floor, new shower and much more!
I came on board when the contractor asked for help with design choices like…paint color, tile, lighting, fixtures, etc. The added bonus was getting to see the process before, during and after.
Today, I’m sharing a collection of 5 entirely different window treatments.
1. Cafe Curtain with Contrasting Cuff
The first one is a familiar style you seen several times here on the blog but not one this closely guarded! This little guy startled me everytime I walked around the corner!
This small space, situated just off the kitchen of this home, was so cool but so small it was very hard to get a good angle to show it’s charm. This small space, which includes a curved stone wall and very high ceilings, faces the front of the house. You might call this room a butler’s alcove. Just large enough for a granite counter, under counter storage including a small wine fridge and a very slender upper cabinet.
When Emily was building her new home she began gathering inspiration pics and ideas she hoped to incorporate into her new home.
One of those inspiration pics was the above photo that she saved to her phone after stumbling across it on Pinterest. Later she showed the photo to her friend Shannon mentioning she’d like to have something similar painted in her kitchen.
It just so happened that Shannon knew me, knew about Beyond the Screen Door and the rest…as they say…is history!
I wavered back and forth on how to describe the color of this floral. The fabric itself is called Harris Navy, a linen blend fabric with a traditional Jacobean print, but I wouldn’t call it a true navy.
Prussian Blue? Blue-gray? Steel Blue? Navy-ish?
In Irene’s new home, the wall color is Sea Salt by Sherwin Williams and the glass accent tiles around the master bathtub are in varying shades of gray. When we found this fabric we knew it was the perfect choice for this master bathroom.
