Navy and White Bathroom: The Reveal~

Today I'm very excited to share the reveal of my kiddos' bathroom!

This is what it looked like before.  A sea of "blah".  Now I'm a fan of neutrals, but this bathroom was ridiculously dull.  And since it was the kiddos' bathroom, I wanted to give it both a dose of color and a bit of whimsy.


Here is the moodboard I created for the bathroom and shared with you a little while back.... 

And here is the bathroom after...


We added board and batten to the walls to give them texture and interest...painted the lower half Behr's Swiss Coffee and the top Martha Stewart's Azurite.

I added some fun art to the walls.  The top piece is a sign I created (free printable to come) and the bottom is a piece of vintage art I found from The Graphic's Fairy and tweaked to make it match the color scheme.


The fabulous shower curtain is from one of my great sponsors, Elisabeth Michael.  I purposely chose a longer size and hung it up close to the ceiling to give the room the illusion of being taller.

 

We removed the towel bar from the wall and added hooks to the top of the board and batten.  I added numbers above the hooks for a little touch of fun (just like I did in my boys' bedroom in our first house.)


Four hooks for four kiddos...


A perfect way for each kiddo to know which towel is his (or hers).


No more blah beige here! The new bathroom is so bright and happy.   I just love it!!  
And the kids love it too!

 

Have a great day~

Believe it or not it's almost one whole year I look for navy/marine hooks for my bathroom, seeing this I think I resolved buying the simple ones like yours and put something cute on top of them :D
Thank you!

Love it. The trend has always been to lighten and brighten, but I love all the bold colors going on in bathrooms these days. Thanks for sharing, liz

I am in love. I don't know what part about it is my favorite - probably the numbers above the hooks and the chevron. Navy and white has always been one of my favorite combos. Great job!!

Sabrina said...

Beautiful redo. You did an awesome job. I also know it's not easy to get photos in a small space so well done on that count too!

Meredith said...

Love it!! Can you address how homeowners feel about the changes you make? We have tenants in our last home and I am very willing to let them make updates. Honestly, she is finishing my to do list! But I know the family personally a d she runs everything by me first. :-)

Your bathroom redo is wonderful; simple, yet striking; masculine, yet pretty. I love the numbered hooks. They're a fun detail that give the room a polished look. Thanks for sharing. I bet your children love it, too!

Love the bathroom. Can you tell me where you found the octopus print?

Unknown said...

Hi, I just love the Octopus art from Graphics Fairy. How did you change the color to blue? I would love to do the exact color, but I have no as to how to change it.
Thank you.
