Today I am going to show you my college-age daughter's bathroom. We recently did a little re-do, which included new flooring. Sorry!!! No before pics! This room had sported a very teen girl look of bright orange, purple, & hot pink for quite a few years. With my daughter being away at college, I longed for something a little more subdued and guest friendly. It was a compromise every step of the way - she still wanted it girly and I wanted sophistication. We found a cute fashion themed shower curtain, which was our jumping off point.
I love the canvas lined towel bin that I found at HomeGoods about a month ago. Fun to have the rolled up towels at the ready - always seems so luxurious!
The walls are a very, very pale pink with a slight gray cast. Isn't that pink rug with the ruffled lattice adorable? A cute little TJ Maxx find and a steal at $6.99! Woot! There's my towel bin up close - loving, loving, loving......
Not necessarily a fan of over the toilet storage towers, but she has soooo much stuff it really was a necessity. I am actually starting to like it. Hard to see, but the Kirkland prints are of high heels.
We decided to take the doors off her linen closet - and I have to say it was life transforming! The room seems bigger and I think it will be easier to keep it looking tidy. Closed doors = junk stash. We took out one of the shelves and now there is room for her hamper. To the right of the sink is a little ode to ballet. Daughter has been a dancer since age two and half!
The original builder mirror was transformed with a little moulding and corner blocks - painted the same pink as the walls and topped with silver metallic glaze. I hot glued and then caulked the pieces onto the mirror. Love it!! (uh oh, the reflection in the mirror is showing the "before" of my current project...)
Here is a close up of her linen closet. We added painted moulding to the metal wire shelving (using heavy duty Velcro). I love this! I had seen so many similar ideas on other blogs so copy, copy, copy! The hamper is also a nifty thing. It has a black hinged top, and is made out of wrought iron, lined with a removable canvas bag. Soooo pretty. I actually purchased it online from QVC. I had been searching for years for a pretty hamper that could sit out and this was it! Not a bargain at $68, but I am ok with it since I had done my best in searching out something special.
Well, that is my daughter's bathroom. It really captures her personality and is gently nudging her to a more grown up look in decorating. I do like it and if I really feel the need to "class" it up, I can always add a new shower curtain and artwork for the months she is gone away at school. I will post another day about the awesome flooring we put in this room - it is really cool!
Thanks for visiting!
Wishing you happiness,
