For the time being...

Aust Country Style
I have really had this urge of late to do something to our old bathroom. Can't do too much as it is not on the current renovation budget list, but I would like to give it a lick of paint and a mini make over that costs hardly a cent. This photo above has inspired me for a long time now, and I am going to use this as a starting point. I will need to take some photos so you can all appreciate what we are living with at the moment...ranch board walls, beige toilet, a wood wall with shiny orange lacquer...and the laundry chucked in too!
I love this little nook to hid the toilet area without stealing light from the space. I would have the window up a little higher. The beaded walls is something that will eventually be in the plans, but for now a coat of white paint on the ranch board will have to do...and definitely on the orange lacquered bath wall.

I adore these pretty little tea cups used as jewelry catchalls. Simple little things like this will be on the cards to bring a bit of vintage to the space.

This is another favourite bathroom image which I have posted a long time ago. I would love to have a pale floor in our bathroom. Currently it is a mish mash of brown geo patterns that aways look dirty...eew! I would love to rip this up and paint the floors white like our bedroom. A Chandelier would be nice, but not for this mini makeover...we have the bath though!

  1. I love free standing baths a huge beautiful mirror, lots of candles and simple tiling, love the chandelier idea too x

  2. We have been planning to do our bathroom for years. I just need to put a bomb under myself and do it! Hayley

  3. Beautiful! I have that first image saved myself. I would love to design a bathroom from scratch - it would most definately have a freestanding bath and a beautiful tumbled marble floor like that one in the last image. Hope you get to put some of this into your bathroom someday soon.

  4. The last picture is so dreamy.

  5. I love he bathroom photos - they all seem to have such wonderful natural light whidh is so fabulous. Inspiring!

  6. Ness, you have some wonderful ideas here. With your amazing flair for interior decorating I can't wait to see what you come up with for your bathroom mini-makeover. Lee :)

  7. Love the bathroom pics.
    Can't wait to see what your mini makeover brings.
    Have a great day!

  8. Ummm..... what heaven you create Ness~~ Always so peaceful and natural. Whatever you do I know will always be beautiful~

  9. Whatever you decide on, it will be beautiful Ness. I would have loved to have a chandelier over my new bath but electricial regulations don't allow it. No-one told me until my electrician broke the news to me last week. He actually had to show me the code book in order for me to cope with the news. I also have to ditch the chandelier light fitting on the back terrace... too close to the pool...oh and forget it in the pool house also. Water and electricity ... what a design hassle! A-M xx

  10. I just read A-M's comments - how I hate rules and regulations too! Love your thoughts for the bathroom Ness, xv.

  11. Love that little toilet nook - adorable! Tracey xx

  12. Those bath photos are gorgeous - I love the second one with the nook and the stained glass window and the beadboard and the old-fashioned art. That is a wow photo!
