The other day when my mom and I went to Gwen’s house to get photos of her bedroom, I asked her to get photos of the bathroom as well. That bathroom is difficult to photograph (as my mom also found out) because the light streams through the window and distorts the color. So the photos that I showed you before, taken with my cheap little point-and-shoot camera were a little “off”.
My mom’s fancy schmancy camera (plus her magical Photoshop skills) resulted in photos that were much more accurate in color than mine were, so here’s a second look at Gwen’s master bathroom.
First let me remind you where it started…
And here are the beautiful “after” pictures that my mom took for me.
|A palette of blues and browns really took the bathroom from cold and bare to warm and inviting.|
|I added the custom shower curtain to cover the bright brass shower frame.|
|One of my favorite touches…a beveled mirror hung on the large builders mirror. Because of the configuration of the outlet and sinks, we couldn’t frame the builders mirror, so we went with this option to dress up the huge mirror.|
|I took regular ‘ole silver light fixtures and gave them a new look with an antiqued gold and antiqued nickel paint finish.|
|The chandelier, found on clearance, received the same paint treatment.|
|The bathroom ties in beautifully with the master bedroom.|
I absolutely love the color we selected for the cabinets. It’s a color called Distance by Behr (the third color down on the card):
Just an FYI…if you’re looking for a beautiful dark blue, the last one on that card, Velvet Evening, is one of my favorites.
