Our long national nightmare has come to an end: Obamacare is all but unimpeachable, gay marriage is on the books and our bathroom is finally done. They’re all reasons to celebrate but I was responsible for only one of these historic events so let’s check out the new bathroom. As you might recall, the original vision for the makeover was retro-masculine on a budget. I wanted the bathroom to have a lived-in feel that incorporated burnished brass finishes and earthy elements like these Anthropologie cabinet knobs.
We also took advantage of more floor space than we’ve been utilizing the last two years, leaving a little more counter space free as you’ll see below.
The towel and toilet paper holders were a special touch in an otherwise mundane region of home decor. Ferm LIVING Design really crafted an ingenious solution to ugly, chintzy bathroom equipment with their brass and wood triangle.
Meanwhile, the nautical hemp doorstop from World Market pulls together the various themes while supporting the brass accents throughout. I replaced the cheap plastic fan clips on the mirror with new brass tabs and the Golden Gate bridge schematics are reproductions from a yard sale find from a local shop owner. Enjoy!
