Designing my bathroom: Getting closer

A while ago I mentioned that we were planning a complete bathroom re-design. Now things are getting serious and the final selections have been made for a Main Bathroom renovation, a brand new Ensuite (squeezed out of wasted space) and a Main Bedroom overhaul, which will include a fabulous new wardrobe (woo hoo!).

So, keeping in mind that we are in a humble outer suburb of la Canberra here, we have kept our budget fairly modest, but with my trademark dose of cheeky fun... here's a little look at some of the things going in...

The Main Bathroom:
Featuring White Subway tiled walls, black hexagon with black grout floor, massive ornate op-shopped mirror, fabulous tapware, and vanity from Ikea. I'm also adding lots of extra much needed storage. I'm going for an urban hotel chic look in here, and will brighten all that black and white with some colourful towels.

The Ensuite:

It's just tiny in here, so I'm keeping it simple, featuring the same wall tile as the main, but with matt white hexagon tile on the floor, built-in mirror cabinet, more gorgeous tapware, tiny skinny vanity from Ikea, super lovely sheer curtain panel, and , because it's all white on white on white, I'll be adding some jewel coloured towels!

And, the new look Main Bedroom:
We're reversing this room and converting the 3 metre wardrobe into the bedhead niche, and using the opposite long wall to create a 4 metre wardrobe and shoe display! So, with a long white wardrobe, white bed linen and white sheers, I want to add drama with moody dark grey walls, then add pops of gorgeous colour, including some of my own fabric designs as bed pillows, plus the orange hexagon fabric as curtain panels = love!

 Demolition begins in a month, and I'm desperately impatient to show you the finished results!


  1. Gorgeous and takes me back to our first bathroom - black and white! Over this side of the lake, we have gone colour mad with this flooring for our 18 year daughter's new bedroom They will certainly keep her off psychedelic drugs! Keep up the frocks for the last few days :)
