Dream Home - Half Bath

This is the inspiration board for my Dream Home Half Bath:
Dream Home - Half Bath

I'm sure you are saying to yourselves - "What is with the stripes?!" But, I figure that it is more likely for me to get a half bath or guest bath than a separate entryway so I will definitely have these beautiful Chocolate stripes!!!

I basically adore everything about the idea bathroom that I found at My Home Ideas. The stripes are perfect and I thought I could use some vintage Hawaii posters or even postcards as decoration. I found the awesome vanity and great lighting at good old Pottery Barn. You may be wondering why I didn't go with a round sink similar to the one in the Idea picture. Well, I used to want one and I do think they look great, however we have one at work and I don't actually love it. So, I have started to go away from that look. Besides I love the idea of the sink being so huge! You don't have to worry so much about cleaning a counter top and the clutter that can build up. (Is this a sign of laziness?)

I was thinking this mirror would be awesome. I might even be able to make something similar myself. This particular mirror is called Rock Candy Mirror from Marjorie Skoras Design (same place as the Entryway Chandelier).

The floor is an awesome custom colored bamboo from NikzadFlooring. It is a frosted white micro bevel and would really brighten it up I think.

To finish off the look, I would use some pretty monogramed plush towels from Pottery Barn.

I think that I might actually be able to pull off this look, besides the flooring which is a little on the expensive side, but where there is a will there is a way!

P.S. I apologize for the dramatic use of the word "awesome" in this post - but lets face it, the room is pretty awesome! Ha!

Join  us Saturdays at for the weekend wrap up         party!
