Little Blue Bathroom

I don't use much blue in my house. Not that I don't love blue, it just doesn't seem to fit. However, when it came time to redo my daughters' bathroom, my youngest daughter begged me to paint the room blue. I was leaning towards something bold, like kelly green or phone booth red, but I was overruled. We agreed on a Laura Ashley shade (Powder Blue I believe). I am pleased with the result and love the soft blue with black & white.

I plan on making a ceiling height shower curtain in the future. For now this monogrammed curtain works just fine.

The inspiration for the diamond pattern woodwork came from the fabulous 1983 adaptation of
The Wind in the Willows

I am obsessed with patterned floors, especially in black & white.

I bought the vintage medicine cabinet at a flea market when I was eighteen. It has been in this bathroom for nearly 20 years and been painted numerous colors.  

I finally found a home for my six black & white Spode Zoological plates.

                         The ceiling and skylight are covered in the same diamond pattern.

Although blue is not my first choice, it's a choice I am happy with for this little bathroom.
I still have to change the switchplates and replace the light, but I am not in a rush. My youngest moves out in two years and I will probably want to redo it anyway.
