A woman’s prerogative
I have very much enjoyed my time visiting family and friends during my extended stay in the UK.Â But now that time is at an end.Â At the end of last week,Â I flewÂ across the pond back into the arms/paws of my beloveds.
Over the past few days as I becomeÂ adjusted to my new time zone, I have spent some time perusing the Interwebs searching for some design inspiration.Â I like to think of it as a way to kick-start my motivation to get working on our massive house renovation project again.
But my dear blog readers, searching the Internet can be a very dangerous thing.Â The endless sources of design and inspiration offer a vast array of possibilities for creating (and recreating) our living spaces. So even when you think you have finished a space, you might get the proverbial itch to change it all over again. The saying goes, it’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind (along withÂ a few other things).Â But it takes a strong husband not to murder his wife when she says she has “a few small ideas to change things” in their recently renovated bathroom.Â Yes, I’m that woman.Â
After posting about our newly madeover bathroom, I realized that there were two things that I wasn’t feeling anymore.Â
The tile.Â And the vanity.Â Oh, and not to mention that the glass vessel sink and faucet have to go because they have impossible-to-remove water stains. But that was from before.Â It’s not a new thing.Â So it doesn’t count.
It’s not that I dislike the tile and the vanity.Â It’s just that after perusing the Interwebs, I have found design elements that I like better.Â For example, I much prefer the style of these open-base vanities (with a white-and-much-easier-to-keep-clean vessel sink):
And I also seem to be gravitating towards the simple lines of the board and batten look:
While the tile on the walls could easily be covered with the board and batten, the tile on the bathroom floor would be replaced with the wood floors we will be installing (eventually), giving itÂ a seamless look between the living rooms and the bathroom.
So, help a girl out here…. I am not usually so fickle when it comes to design choices.Â I am entering new territory wanting to change things up. What do you think?Â Am I crazy to want to redo our recently madeover bathroom?Â Are you feeling the potential new looks or do you prefer it the way it is now?
