Lower Bathroom

My dear friend over at Owl and the Phoenix is making a few updates to her house, so I thought I would share mine as well :D

 This is my lower bathroom which I use more often than the upper (counterspace)
I have a love-hate for the tile. I think if it wasnt covering the counters as well I wouldnt be that bothered by it, and I'm not exactly a fan of baby blue which covers the walls accenting the blue in the tiles.

As you can see I have tried to add some black and green to tone down the overwhelming blue and usually keep my black towels in this bathroom although its not shone.
Ok, so bare with me. This is my first "mood-board"

The Plan:
  • Paint the cabinets similar to the Barnworn kit from Caromal Colours
  • Rip out the shower door because it hits the toilet when you try to get out and replace with a shower curtian like this from Anthropologie
  • Replace the mirror/medicine cabinet
  • Rip out that odd overhaning box above the vanity and add new vanity lights
  • Install a little shelf over the toilet with a clock coz I am always running late ;)
  • Add new bathrugs
  • A bench to actually sit at.
  • Repaint the walls, maybe white?
  • Paint the trim white like the walls or the distressed like the cabinets?

Here is the best quick fix I could manage for now. This TV was huge in my studio btw :-]
