I truly cannot believe this room came together! I’m so excited to share our basically completed half bath with you today. This wallpaper half bath was the culmination of a birthday present (wallpaper) and my husband saying “you can go crazy with that room.” Basically had to get that in writing before I started drawing up any designs. It might be the smallest room in the house but it’s definitely the most fun!
As mentioned in many of our home renovation posts, our house was built at the turn of the century and we wanted to channel the lingering art deco theme that the home had. That meant rich wallpaper, cool light fixtures and unique geometric shapes throughout. BUT I also wanted to keep it modern and not overwhelm the space by making every room lean heavy into this theme.
So the perfect compromise was, of course, to put as many art deco touches into the half bath that I could.
The entire design started with this tile which is a direct dupe of a designer tile that was 10x the price.
Seriously, love and respect designers and think they should be paid what they’re worth, but paying $36 per 8″ square tile was not in our budget.
I quickly whipped together the inspiration over here and leaped at the chance to make this room a reality.
Later down the road, this room had a lot of drama. The sink we ordered was too big, luckily the company we ordered it from had once size down.
Unfortunately, something got mixed up in their supply chain/shipping department because instead of the 8″ widespread holes we were shipped the 4″ which wouldn’t work for our amazing faucet and I was not returning that.
The company didn’t know when they would have the sink top back in so they offered to send us a close enough replacement. Our contractors were able to work something out and fasten it properly and truthfully, I like how it turned out this way so much more. It’s way more modern and sleek!
The final details were to paint the board and batten in Egret White from Sherwin Williams (check out all the colors we used in our house here) and attach our mirror,toilet paper holder, and light fixture.
Finally, after 4 months of waiting, the wallpaper half bath was complete and I couldn’t be happier with it! It makes me so happy to look at it whenever I walk by on my way out the door.
