a new bathroom!

i mentioned a couple post backs that we lived at my parents for a month while our landlord totally gutted our bathroom (i'm pretty sure i was post-free during that period). though it took much longer than expected, we are very pleased with the results.

unfortunately, i never took photos of its previous state (probably because i disliked it so severely), so i can't give you the full effect. these photos aren't the best, but i'm too impatient to have another go with the camera.

it feels like a little oasis now. granite countertop, stone floors... what?! i always imagined my dream bathroom to have white floors (along with a white claw foot tub and white pedestal sink with a pretty beveled mirror hanging from ribbon :)), but i'm really liking how this stone floor hides hairs and such (we shed a lot). when we had the white floor, i felt like i had to swiffer it everyday!

EVERYTHING is new and everything is in a new spot. the tub used to be perpendicular to where it is now, and there was a wall at the end of it. this created a tiny area for the sink, which meant only one of us could get ready at a time. although it is still compact, it feels SO much roomier. it's just a happy space to get ready for the day.

notice all the rifle paper co.? yea, i'm obsessed. i mean i even hung up the insert that came with their calendar. it's simply too pretty to toss.

I love your new bathroom! I've been trying to find a way to decorate our guest bath and might have to copy you with the anthro hand towel over the toilet. Super cute! And oh. my. goodness. I'm SO obsessed with Rifle Paper Co.! I've pretty much been planning my entire living room/dining room around their artwork. So obsessed! haha
