my girls bathroom, all finished, in just under a week!
i envisioned this space as a fun, happy room filled with pattern, a touch of deep blue, and some whimsical details that allude to the fact that this room is used by two teen girls. i decided i wanted to use a wallpaper pretty early on in the design process. i have always wanted to use an animal print wallpaper somewhere in my home, and i looked into snakeskin, cheetah, and several leopard patterns. i finally decided on a bolder black + taupe leopard print wallpaper, which i think is the perfect balance to the tailored, deep blue valance and vanity. a vintage pendant light and large vintage pulls add a sense of history. many items in this room were purchased on ebay, thrift stores, ikea and home goods. the only "real" splurge was the flooring--an elongated marble hex tile that really adds some texture and a sense of luxury.
