In the ongoing saga known as "What I'm Workin' With" we are going to talk bathrooms today, friends. Brace yourselves because it might be a bumpy ride. We have 3 1/2 bathrooms in this house (with a possibility for another bathroom in the finished basement), so while they are not in a short supply the bathrooms each need some tweaking. Come see what I'm talking about.
The image above is our master bathroom. The colors and dated fixtures will be changed eventually, but you probably already figured that. The space, though, is really nice for the two of us, as is the natural light. If I'm allowed to dream (which is all I'm doing at this point because dreaming is free), I'd like to transform this room into this master bath designed by Kristin Panitch:
I mean...just gorgeous, classic, timeless, and perfect.
We have a half bathroom on the first floor just off of the den, which we've already found to be really convenient. It's teensy-weensy, but that means it shouldn't cost too much to spiff up, right?
I love the corner sink and original medicine cabinet; but instead of the current wall tile I hope to be able to use Trustworth Studio's Apothecary's Garden wallpaper. What a whimsical pattern, huh? I loved it the instant I discovered it a few years ago and was so pleased to see that it's already been used in this chic bathroom below:

The wallpaper would be great pared with a solid penny round tile on the floor, which would be an inexpensive change with a big impact.
From there, let's go upstairs where we have 2 more full bathrooms. Admittedly, I'm sharing these spaces today just for the sake of sharing because we don't need to use them until there are little Adams & Ashleys living upstairs.
Both bathrooms have unique color schemes, that's for sure. They are both in really good condition, and I intend on keeping the original sinks, light fixtures, medicine cabinets and the tub in the green bathroom. Friends and family who have seen the house all love the cheeky wallpaper in the green bathroom, but it's aged and peeling in spots so it will probably be taken down eventually.
If it hasn't already been apparent this week, we have a lot of work ahead of us. Most of these spaces haven't even been considered yet, but that's the fun in being in a home for the long term. We have 30+ years ahead of us here.
If you had these bathrooms to work with, what would you do?
