bathroom pop

I just realized after reading that title that it might sound a bit...disturbing. Eww. But I got your attention, didn't I?

The bedroom patching (and there is a lot of patching in a house with 65 year old plaster) is done and I'm ready to get my paint on. And just getting my painting supplies ready puts a bee in my bonnet to possibly paint my bathroom. I've got a whole damn hive in my bonnet these days, so what's one more bee, right?

We did the bathroom when I was 8.75 months pregnant with our first daughter and we have loved it just as it is for the past 4 1/2 years. But I'm ready for a refresh. Nothing huge, just a new paint color or something.

I love the green in Kate Spade's bathroom with all of the white tile and the black on the shower curtain.

Of course, Kate's green is a wonderful (and pricey) Scalamandre wallpaper but Benjamin Moore's Baby Fern would be close. 

Or, maybe the reverse. A graphic black and white combo with a pop of color would be fun. And really, doesn't everyone want to have fun in the bathroom?

Kate strikes again with this bathroom that was featured in House & Garden, October 2004. (no, Kate Spade is not sponsoring this post. I wish.)

Something for me to think about while I paint...the bedroom. One room at a time girlfriend!

Do you ever get the urge to change a perfectly good room? Any rooms in your house that you're board with? 

Cheers to a good weekend!


  1. The title of your post made me laugh out loud :) I love green, black and white together! Oh, and I am constantly wanting to change my rooms around, so 4 1/2 years is pretty good!

  2. You are singing my song, sister! I seriously have design ADD. I am constantly staring at walls plotting my next move. We painted our living room two summers ago and I'm still not feeling it. My husband thinks I'm nuts.

    I pinned the same Kate Spade bathroom but couldn't get my hubs on board with the green. Maybe I can live vicariously through yours??

    Great post. Perfect for the many of us who have the same affliction, lol.

    Have a great weekend.

  3. That happens to me a lot... just when I think I've finally put the finishing touch on a room, I see a new idea and want to start all over again! I think maybe being so immersed in design does that to a girl. I'm also loving that kelly green colour right now. I think it's perfect with black and white in a bathroom!

  4. I love that green. It still might need something, though. Would you try hand-painting on top? How about a stencil?

  5. I love white, black and green too! I'm thinking of this color combo for the kids' bath.

    I change my mind as often as I change my underwear! The hubby is not always on board so I have to slow down sometimes.

    Have a great weekend!

  6. I like the idea of b&w with a pop of color! Calls for easy updates! :)

  7. What about doing a stencil? I think you could find some awesome ones out there with similar designs! Loving the Kelly Green... Have you seen my post today? I am all over the kelly green!

  8. I love these two bathrooms but think I lean toward the first one! And don't worry, I completely know the feeling of trying to concentrate on one room at a time - it's the hazards of working on an older house I think :) xx
