Whoever built our house in the 60’s, took the term “water closet” a bit too literally when designing the master bath. Small, does not begin to describe it. Tiny and ugly, perhaps does…or did, rather. Since the quickie weekend make-over we gave it a few weeks ago we now refer to it as, the “Boutique Bath”.
Before we started the walls were dingy white, there was a parchment shade that our cat tore in an unfortunate window jumping incident, and we had a pedestal sink which took up space without offering storage.
We decided to go for a dark, modern look and painted the walls a deep violet. The color would probably be a bit much for a larger room but it works nicely in this smaller space. We also found a new sink at Ikea that’s perfect for our needs, offering storage without taking up as much space as its predecessor.
That’s really it. Small changes to small spaces. It’s the little things that count, right? 😉
