The Powder Room and My Inspiration Board

While I wait for my new job to begin, I have plenty of time to plan for things, such as my living room paint and the entire bathroom. I have collected so many things, in the past, that I had a lot of what I needed. My inspiration board was finished, before I started. I had the material and sea horses from an old Ebay purchase. The two gold leafed antique mirrors and frame came from an antique mall, in Torrance, Ca. The lion  hook came from my great aunt’s house. We (family) all agree that she had to have stolen it from the original MGM, Las Vegas. That ‘s what she and the cousins did. Gypsies! The mermaid and metal frames came from my nana. The Moai came from Mahalo Tiki at Tiki Caliente. The vintage tile came from a friend who was moving, and needed to unload some stuff. That was a total score. Pink with silver, gold, and copper confetti. There are my swatches for paint. I’m thinking of a gold accent wall or some gold atomic star bursts. I have other oldie goldie accessories from my nana, like the vintage gold metal and glass, floral soap dish and mouth rinse glass that came with the vanity set.

So I’m leaning towards a pedestal sink, due to the size of the room.

Small Pedestal.

The faucet seems simple enough.

There is no place for the roll either, so I found this, IN GOLD! hahaa.

Perfect!

Perfect!

The material will cover the shelf piece that is existing above the loo, now. I’m thinking of painting that thing gold, as well. The loo, itself, is fine. I think I’ll order the pink or white shell toilet seat, though…

This is pretty, and simple. Do I want Simple?

Lastly, the towels and the curtain.

So many cute choices for something that doesn't last!

I wonder if the curtain background is white, or if you get to stand there, naked, under Gene’s umbrella?

I may design the curtain myself. I can do that, now ; )
