At this juncture in my big girl life, I did not have the brain power, financial monies, confident assuredness in my picks or really, motivation to totally redo bathrooms at kondo, so I went with a budget band-aid. The floors, sink, and shower - not within my wherewithal, so she did what she could. Maybe $2000 all in and we're doing just fine for now. What I splurged on: the wallpaper, medicine cabinet and kartell towel bars. Saved on: the lighting, faucet, shower curtain, rug, black toilet seat, artwork and table (was a leftover media stand in old house).
The art over the table is a framed Turkish textile I bought in Istanbul and sent to Framebridge. The towel bars are a fave - Kartell makes them in several colors and sizes. The towels on the wall are Matouk, and the stack on the bottom shelf are Pendleton and Mara Hoffman.

The shower curtain is a magical trick involving act 1: buy a tension rod, act 2: procure a Helena tablecloth from Furb, finalement: hem it. And the bathrobe is notable because it feature attendants at a dog wedding, including the poodle bride. It's by Karen Mabon who makes very fun robes and pajamas. The rug is one of my fave things in the room - I am bummed you can't see it. I do practice what I preach and always have a colorful Persian in the bath because it really makes the room feel special, and they never ever look dirty.
The medicine cabinet thrills me. It's way too big, but I've never had one before and I wanted it all, so whatever is what I say to scale. It's from Restoration Hardware, and it showed up with the glass smashed and several dings and dongs. They did give me a hefty discount, and I had it fixed locally, so - a girl can want caviar, but she's still eating popcorn shrimp. For now.
The light over the cabinet is from Anthro. The shell wallpaper is a furb moment - we don't have it online, but you can certainly email and we're able to hook it up. All of the brass fixtures - vanity mirror, paper towel holder, pulls, knobs are also RH. And I painted the gross cabinet in black oil paint. I stained the rug with it, got it on the baseboards, and my shoe.
And lastly, there a photograph I bought from a guy on the street in Soho. There an abstract collage from Eleanor-Scott Davis. The little handtowel is Porthault and the vanity tray is from The Container Store. Voila!
