Apartment Progress: The Bathroom

SPACES, VINTAGELauren Caron2 Comments

Other than the holidays things have been a bit busy around here.  A few weeks ago we made some progress on the bathroom.  It seemed to all come together after I spent the whole day painting and Jack installed the fixtures.  The light was a purchase made on a trip upstate, the polished nickel towel rods and toilet paper holder were purchased from Pottery Barn and the shower curtain (second one) arrived in the mail from Burke Decor, after 4 months of being on back order!

If any of you are wondering what the paint color is, well it was mixed.  I purchased Apparition by Benjamin Moore for the room but after painting one wall it seemed to look too much like concrete. I decided to lighten it with Benjamin Moore's Mascarpone, a warm white that I used as trim in the living room.  It's a little hard to see in these photos but the mixed result is a light warm gray.

The last two components to finish this room will be the fish prints that we had purchased on the same trip we picked up the light fixture and the bamboo roman shade that I plan to purchase from Home Depot.  The prints are being framed right now by my mother's favorite frame shop in North East, CT - Killingly Glass (he does a great job and very reasonably priced) and the shade has to be cut to size.

Once I have the finished prints I will photograph them, but I just wanted to give everyone an update on our apartment's progress.
