Surprise! We've got a lil' mid-week bathroom reveal for you. Earlier this month we shared our Wilmar Drive project, a top to bottom interior remodel of a 1960 colonial located in Fox Chapel. We held a few kid-approved spaces back, and are thrilled to show you one of them today.
This full bathroom, located on the top floor, was remodeled by the previous owners prior to selling the home. Our clients, the new owners, asked us to give it a small refresh in order to make it feel brighter and more playful for their young child. Knowing that our client's didn't want to invest a lot of money into the refresh, we got to work on a small design plan that would add personality and bring the space to life.
First, we updated the existing vanity by adding a fresh coat of paint, installing a new mirror, and swapping out the two separate wall sconces for one double sconce directly down the center of the mirror. I love the playfulness and placement of this light fixture. A kids bathroom is the perfect place to think outside the box when it comes to lighting. Second, we added some much needed color. The tone on tone colors in the materials and finishes from the previous remodel were bland and boring. So we had a light blue, chevron-style wallpaper installed to make the walls pop. Then we selected a bold green fabric for the roman shade on the window. Finally, we added a few styling accessories to finish off the space. Can you not handle the adorableness of the tiny stool with the navy dipped feet? Obsessed!
