“If I want to be alone, some place I can write, I can read, I can pray, I can cry, I can do whatever I want – I go to the bathroom.” – Alicia Keys
BEFORE | BROWN BATHROOM
Oh the tile colors of the ’70’s and ’80’s…not the most appealing of palates, that’s for sure. What most people don’t realize, is there is an inexpensive way to give yourself a brand new bathroom without always having to rip out the unsightly existing pieces. In four steps, you can go from this, to this….
AFTER | GREEN AND WHITE BATHROOM
Ok, to be fair, we also removed the mirrored wall and replaced it with Santuzza Moss, a fab flocked wallpaper by Designer’s Guild. New bathroom accessories from our store streamline the space and create a calming oasis. One of our favorite products, blown glass water pitchers that double as flower vases from Blenko, an American glass company in business since 1893. Fresh orange roses are the perfect pop to the shades of green. This bathroom is the second phase to a tween bedroom we recently remodeled. To update your counter, tile and floors, here are the steps to achieve a brand new bathroom.
1- Scrub all tile with acid.
2- Let all tile dry completely
3- Apply a high quality primer, we suggest Kilz, in white
4- Apply two coats of Hollandlac Brilliant from Fine Paints of Europe
We did the same process on a kitchen, taking country animal print tiles to a chic high gloss black modern space. Transform your tile, you’ll be amazed with the results!
