When I shared the Black + White Bathroom reveal, I mentioned that, of course, there are still a few things outstanding for this renovation. So typical. If anyone actually gets a project completed, start-to-finish, in one weekend I’d love to hear about it!
I often need to see things at 80% before I can commit to the last finishing touches. Plus, I’d rather have a curated design over time, than commit to pieces I don’t actually love in a rush to an arbitrary deadline.
This bathroom, though, is throwing me a curveball for what to put upon those beautiful white walls.
(and yes, replacing the rusting mirror is part of those other “final touches” to do!)
“Bathroom Art” is a somewhat… personal? sensitive? strange? (all of the above) …topic to discuss. But since I’m having a design dilemma, I thought I’d ask for the advice of Mes Amies.
So far, I’m waffling between two options:
Graphic typography was my initial plan – which I still adore. The bold letters and simple, mostly-white design seem to fit the space. Plus, these lettered prints complement the hot/cold faucet handles and monogrammed towel hooks that I love.
Antique Pharmacy Ads
Then I started thinking outside-my-box, and how cool would antique pharmacy ads look in a townhouse from the 1870’s? (the answer is: way cool!) With this solution, I may need to do a gallery-wall, depending on the size of prints/downloads, to fill the space. It is a little daring for me, but the black subway tile turned out so beautifully. Maybe this would too?
So, what do you think, Mes Amies? Graphic Typography or Antique Pharmacy Ads for our black + white bathroom? Or, is there a third option I should consider?
