Bathroom Makeover

After living in our newly built home for a few years, I had grown tired of the “builders white” on the walls.

It was time for some color.   So I began researching color schemes and immediately fell in love with the turquoise, aqua, and reds of the 50s.

The first room to be painted was our dining room in a beautiful robust red.   The kitchen attaches to the dining room.  It will be aqua.   And our half bath on the first floor attaches to he kitchen.  So I wanted to paint that room in the beautiful turquoise tones.  

But here’s the thing.   I wanted to capture the joyfulness and cheerfulness of the 50’s decorating without necessarily creating a period room.   My husband doesn’t mind an occasional vintage piece in the decorating scheme, but he’s not terribly fond of whole room recreations.  I wanted to utilize that color scheme but create something more modern and whimsical.  Check out my Modern Day makeover below.   What do you think? BEFORE–blah blah blah

 I just love this little vintage bird picture.  Don’t you?
