Bathroom Redon't

When we first moved in six years ago, we were
extremely happy to have an ensuite bathroom. 

We didn't love the tile choice the builder/flipper had made, however.

We got estimates for a redo—new tiles on the backsplash and floor, 
new cabinet, and bead board on the walls.

If memory serves the cost would've been $6,000.

Reality check, anyone?

We have children to educate.
Money doesn't grow on trees!

We were going to redo a recently redone (not hideous) bathroom.

Instead, I opted for a redon't.

I tried painting the walls the same color as our master bedroom.

I tried repainting the walls...

something vibrant and daring and…


As it turns out, the third time really is the charm, 
or it's charming enough for now.

First, I selected new fabric for the custom shower curtain.

Next, I took pictures of the tile
and headed to our trusted Benjamin Moore store.

A consultant helped me select a shade to complement the gray.

Next Day Blinds made a custom shade.

I wanted dark to contrast the light walls and match the shades in our bedroom.

To add color I used a few red accents.

It's not our dream ensuite bath, but I'm happy with it.
And I'm very glad not to have to think about it any longer!

  1. It looks great! Love your shower curtain!

  2. I think it looks great, now, Suzanne. Sometimes it is all the little details that can take something to that next level (and acceptability) for us. I think you did a good job pulling it all together. It really looks good now. Love the shower curtain, too. xo Diana

  3. I think it turned out great. I love the shower curtain and I am a big fan of matchstick blinds.

  4. Looks wonderful to me! Wish we had a second bathroom. Love the colors.

  5. Suzanne it looks great. Sometimes it takes a few times to get it just right. The shower curtain is gorgeous.
