I offer these photos of design redemption as testimony: good will persevere. My husband and I have taken eleven bad bathrooms and helped them see the light. This upstairs hall bath, shared by three bedrooms was, by far, the worst.
Always at the top of my design plan was playing it safe: never a brave paint color, never personality, and NEVER, EVER wallpaper–so that the houses Greg and I worked so hard to bring up to date would sell quickly. But we love it here: the house’s character, the once-farmed land, the barn, the 1830’s stone foundation (OK, maybe I’m the only one who loves that), the profusion of spring and summer flowers that keep me in bouquets for five months straight–I don’t think we’re moving anymore.
BRING ON THE BOLD COLOR
AND SWEET CAFE CURTAINS WITH HAND-SEWN TRIM
BRING ON THE WALLPAPER & WHAT THE HELL, BRING THE PERSONALITY, TOO
ANY BUREAU THAT ALLOWS ITSELF TO BE TURNED INTO A BADLY DESIGNED VANITY AND THEN GLUED TO A PLASTER WALL GOES TO DESIGN HELL
