The Guest Bathroom: Before

Well, here it is. The guest bathroom. Don't let the nicely edited photos fool you. It's dated. It's easy for me to see the imperfections; the 1900s light fixture, the popcorn ceilings, the nickel drawer pulls. But still this is the nicest bathroom I've ever had and I'm so thankful. The shower is newly tiled beautifully. The window provides so much natural light and the ledge allows for a plant to soak up the shower moisture. 

I love being a host, so I went out and grabbed some plants and some super nice body products from Rudy's Barbershop so that our guests could have an awesome place to take a shower.

But there's just so much I still want to do! Here's the plan:

I'd love to swap out the mid-level cool grey on the cabinetry for this dark grey I use in my kitchen. This will add high contrast and a bit of drama. It'll look amazing with brass drawer pulls.

For all fixtures placed on white walls, I want to scrap the silver towel hooks and rods and add matte black fixtures like this one. Matte black will again provide the contrast I'm looking for.

The bathroom is still fairly dark. Changing the wall color to a bright white will really brighten up the room and make it look even cleaner.

This matte black toilet paper holder is inexpensive and matches the towel rod perfectly.

For all fixtures placed on the newly-painted black cabinetry, I want to add brass fixtures. I love brass on black as it adds contrast and looks more masculine than brass on white does. I found these drawer pulls for cheap from LuxHome.

Make (or purchase if i'm lazy) a shelf for the bathtub to bring some wood and function to the bath.
