Ah, the winter of our discontent continues, stuck inside by
Covid protocol, even if not by winter weather.
Any time that happens, I seem to move to thoughts of
rearranging furniture or changing things up. I’ve often heard it said if one
chooses to go bold with décor do it in a small room where the impact either won’t
be huge or is easily changed. To that end, I decided to paint my small half
bath off our master bedroom. Yes, I know; who in this day and age only has a
half bath rather than a sumptuous spa master loaded with deep soaking tub,
clear frameless tiled walk-in shower, two sinks, furniture-like linen closet
and window which looks out to some garden oasis? I spend very little time in
the bathroom so a fancy one has very little priority in my life. This house was
built on a strict budget with the idea we don’t need that much space, but as we
age, we will need low utility bills, lower taxes, low maintenance and low
upkeep. The last thing I want to do in my 70’s and 80’s is clean a huge house!
So, my tiny half bath went from a mild pastel aqua and seashore décor to a deep charcoal grey/brown with white ceiling and cabinetry. And man, does it now pop! I love the change! See for yourself.
