Improve my home: Room #2 (before)

In keeping with my promise to both you and myself, I have selected the room I will be re-doing for the month of February.  I chose a smaller space this time, as I will likely have one weekend to complete the project, but this space is definitely in need of a make-over!

The room I've selected for February is the master bathroom.  I HATE this room.  The vanity area is ok, but the shower/toilet/windowless room is the room I've given the LEAST attention to.  It's also the only room in the house that is still model-home white.  So, the time has come, I can ignore the room no longer. 

I am VERY open to ANY suggestions you may have (and no, I can't put in a window due to it's location in the home- it doesn't connect to any outside walls, sorry).  So far I've got "get new shower curtain" on the list.  Good thing I have a week to get started!  So, fire away will you?  WHAT DO I DO WITH THIS ROOM??!?

  1. What if you did a nice deep red (there's a red called "Library Red" that Home Depot carries - we used it in our Reedley house and it was my favorite of all the colors we used) - either one red wall with cream color of paint for the rest, or a nice tan/coffee, or a cream paint for all walls ("Champagne" from HD is nice) along with dark red accents, maybe some copper mixed in with silver, and glass.

  2. I think a color that would help open it up would be nice. And make sure to paint the ceiling and walls the same. I learned from Trading Spaces that that helps it keep from feeling to "boxy".

    Maybe a Sea Glass Green? With white and blue accents. Shells and Oceanic themes. You could get a Port Hole shaped "window" / frame and put a nice pic of the outside in it. This could help with the illusion of having a real window.

  3. my in-laws recently re-did their hall bath and I have to admit that I love it! They put up these little metal dragonflies, each one is separate... and hung them in a 'flock' type pattern, they look amazing! (Maybe behind the door, to the right in that pic?) I agree with maybe a see-glass green, or possibly a light brown (think melted chocolate milkshake), either of those with some mirror accents and bright white trim would look really clean and crisp. And I love double shower curtains, one for decoration that tends to be pulled back, maybe with a pretty tassle? I'm sure you'll make it b.e.a.utiful! ;)

  4. What do you all think of doing an all over wall stencil (made to look more like wall paper) like this? http://www.cuttingedgestencils.com/wall-stencils-damask-stencils.html

    Do you think it would make the back wall pull forward visually and make the room look smaller? Or do you think it's a great idea? I really like the look- I wonder if I could pull it off...

  5. I think those stencils look great, and as long as it was only one wall or so, it wouldn't be too overpowering. I think they would be perfect for the little space, b/c on big wall in a main room it might be too distracting, but the bathroom is a great idea!

  6. I agree with Kara. I like the stencils too but only do it on one wall. I'm sure you'll make it look great! =)
