Before, we were surrounded by the world (wallpaper). And it was dark, cold, and dingy.
After (our bathroom remodel), we are surrounded by more genteel times, Victorian era charm to be exact.
About three months ago we decided to give the bathroom in our 1848 home a makeover: nothing serious. We weren’t planning on gutting it. And we decided we didn’t want to spend the money to get rid of all that yellow tile. So we needed a plan that would fit the historic nature of the house and would also give the illusion that we actually chose that shade of yellow on purpose.
With your help, we picked out a wall color (a lemony shade of antique white) and made some adjustments on what fixtures we’d use.
The result: A Victorian-inspired bathroom that uses a bold shade of lavender to bring out the bright side of the yellow tile.
But you be the judge. Does this bathroom makeover make the grade? How would you rate it?
