It’s that time again (time for another round of the One Room Challenge to motivate me into finishing something!). But! This time is much different for me. I’ve watched participants for years, participated myself last Spring in our rental, and this time I get to do a room in my own home! After rental hopping here in Utah for 5 years and moving around the country for school/training for 10 years before that, we bought a house!! I have grand plans for renovations down the road, so for now a lot of space need a smaller phase 1 refresh before a more major phase 2 overhaul. The powder bath off our entry is the perfect example of this. It’s pretty much blank slate with nineties finishes and a very tall ceiling. Someday new flooring, fixtures, tile up the walls, a beautiful paper above the tile and on the ceiling, etc., etc. will be amazing…for now, phase 1. Ha!
We currently don’t have any storage in there at all, so that’s our number 1 programming need- a small cabinet for toilet paper, soap, hand towels and all the things that have been collecting in piles since we moved in! I have some art I had framed in one of our rentals but hadn’t hung, as well as some shelves that I’m really excited to finally use. And the most beautiful rug ever. More on that next week.
Here is my mood board for the powder bath, incorporating plenty of brass, deep blues, olive greens, and some salmony reds:
