Master Bathroom Phase 1

Well the master bathroom makeover is now officially underway. I spent Monday night painting and last night we hung the new valance. And can I say… what a difference a coat of paint makes!

Check out the before again…

Much warmer in here!

master bathroom functional grayI’m completely in love with the new window treatment from RLF Home (the Cerque Empire valance). I wanted the newly finished master bedroom to flow into the adjoining bath, and this valance had the perfect color scheme to make it work.

I might be putting the rest of this makeover on hold for a week or two while I get some Easter crafts out of the way (well at least to you; I’ll be working behind the scenes to finish). But can you believe next week is March already? I’m ready though… ready for warmer weather, leaves on the trees, and Daylight Savings time!

Master Bathroom Mood Board

Now that my master bedroom is complete with new paint, bedding, window treatments and artwork, it’s time to move on to our master bath. This place is pretty bland. I mean just take a look below…

And I don’t know why the floor plan we bought calls for such a large bathroom.
Overkill in my opinion. Right?

So I started drawing up a mood board for this space.
Here’s what I’ve come up with so far…

The first bit of décor I found for the room was the window treatment from RLF Home. LOVE this Cerque Empire valance. It perfectly fits my color scheme of grays and golds, plus I love the ribbon trim. I also used RLF Home valances in my sun room and love the quality.

Here’s some other things I rounded up for the room:
• Savoy House Semi Flush Mount Light – Amazon
• Boxwood Potted Plant – Joss & Main
• Zuma Gold Mirrors – Joss & Main
• Metropolis Framed Giclee Print – Joss & Main
• Area Rug – Wayfair
• Floating Shelves – Amazon
• Gold Towels – Amazon
• Window Treatments – RLF Home

These are just for inspiration, not all of the actual pieces I’ll use.
And as you can see, it will flow nicely into my master bedroom.
