The BSO allows each designer to submit design boards for up to 3 rooms. I decided to submit for a bathroom and a small nook on the 3rd floor. If you look at the picture from the last post of the front of the house, the nook is the semi-circle window at the top. It’s a perfect hideout for a small boy and his dog to daydream about all the adventures they will take together (more about that coming soon).
My first design submission was a small blue-tiled bathroom. The moment I entered this room I had an idea to transform it from it’s current condition to something with a bit more wow-factor. The challenge in this space is that the designer is not permitted to change the tile wall or the floor. I found a way to incorporate them into the design.
The view of the bathroom from our first visit to the Mayfair House:
|Here is my design board showing the concept:|
|1. Light, 2. SW Paint Color, 3. Mirror, 4. Shelf, 5. Kohler Purist Widespread Faucet, 6. Radiator Cover, 7. Succulent, 8. Fabric , 9. Mornings Away Art Print, 10. Towels|
This space was envisioned as the spot where a sophisticated woman gets ready in the morning and wants to start her day inspired by her surroundings. Updating this bathroom with a dark wall color above the blue tile along with modern French gold fixtures and accessories melds perfectly with the painting, titled Mornings Away. A fabric roman shade and matching shower curtain would be added to bring diverse texture to the space.
I am excited for the opportunity to work on this project. Wish me luck!
