Bold and Beautiful


Who ever said jungle green in a bathroom would be too much? I surprised myself actually by picking this color, but I now couldn't imagine it any other way. This small powder room on our main floor has become one of my favorite rooms in the house. The green is paired with the neutral AND natural element of the dark brown, marble mosaic. I added a little sparkle and vintage to the room by adding these acorn shaped pendants which also in turn compliment the antique cabinet we turned in to a vanity. And to be sure the room didn't go too traditional, I chose the large white bowl sink and sleek faucet. The play of modern and classic are working well together here - just what I like!

If you tend to stay on the safe side of color like me, I challenge you to pick a smaller room that is more "managable" in a smalller dose and go for it - done the right way, you will be pleasantly surprised!

Love the mosaic tiled wall. Did you do that yourself? Excellent overall design!

Thank you - yes I designed it and my husband did the install. Mosaics aren't bad to install when they come in square sheets.

I think I'm going to use your bathroom mosaic wall idea in the 1/2 bath of the new home I'm building. Thanks for the inspiration!

Wow -- great stuff! I look forward to shamelessly stealing your ideas!!!

Do you mind telling me more about the wall tile? I'm just not sure I'm finding the same type of "dark brown, marble mosaic."

Thanks so much!!!
