As a follow up to last week's post pleading for help in picking picture frames for my master bedroom, I would like to report that I think I found (bought) a solution on the weekend when I visited West Elm in Toronto for the first time. I really liked this store!
Thank you to the many people that wrote me emails suggesting various options - they were all helpful and the end result will encompass many parts of your suggestions.
I am not going to reveal the picture frames hung and in place just yet (mainly because they are sitting in a heap on my bedroom floor and only white sheets of paper are hung in their place on the wall right now).
BUT, I wanted to report one other home purchase that I was really happy with.
Before I went to West Elm, I hit up their website prior to arriving, and had my mind set on this shower curtain of all things:
I have two bathrooms that require a shower curtain in my home and only one stylish curtain - the others are very dated, boring or juvenile. I loved this when I saw it and thought it would be perfect for my main/kids' bathroom. Goodbye juvenile, hello clean, modern and still fun.
This is how it looks:
|(I was sure to crop the photo from the bottom|
so you couldn't see the kids stools x2 plus potty
chair ... sort of changes the look if you know
what I mean).
I am really happy with the result. It is exactly what I was looking for.
I know I usually don't post much design stuff on this blog, but just for fun, shown below some before pictures of the same bathroom prior to the major reno my husband and I did a few years back. The shape is overall the same, but if you look close there are some really "special" parts that are now gone (hint: shower curtain, door with gold knob, carved out toilet paper holder and the linoleum flooring.
Have a great weekend! Maybe hit up West Elm if you are looking for a fun hour to yourself!
