A Guess at the Plan for the Bathroom

A guess, because the design is tentatively based on the only design we can see from the upcoming line of wallpaper by Rifle Paper Co. for Hygge & West. There are more patterns to come in May!

The bathroom on the second floor is nice, just not to my taste. There is fruit-themed wallpaper, hunter green on a mottled tan background, with a green and maroon border, and a yellow faux-finish on the claw foot tub. The bones of the room are good though, and I’ve been happy to not do much in there until inspiration came along. Inspiration came along. Last Friday, I immediately started scheming up a design plan featuring the new wallpaper line.

Rifle Paper Co. Hygge and West Wallpaper Bathroom Design #makingitlovely

  1. Dean Stockwell in ‘The Boy with Green Hair,’ Art.com
    I’ve not seen the movie, but I love this as a photograph.

  2. Rifle Paper Co. Wallpaper, Hygge & West
    I could easily work with this yellow and green design, but the full line will be out May 19 with more options.

  3. My Bathroom
    Brass and antique fixtures, ahoy!

  4. Brass Bathroom Waste Basket, Target
    Yep, more brass. I picked this up a while ago, so it’s already in the room.

  5. Fleur-de-Lys Juice Glass, Anthropologie
    I moved all of the toothbrushes to the inside of the medicine cabinet, so I’m on the lookout for tumblers small enough to fit into the holders on the sink. These may be too delicate, but they are adorable.

  6. Large Hicks Pendant, Circa Lighting
    I’m dying to use one in this house, and the bathroom could be the perfect spot. I do still have the small oval and brass pendant from Eleanor’s room though, which could be a good (free) option.

  7. Row Stripe Towel, West Elm
    Stripes are always welcome.

  8. Martini Side Table in Antique Brass, West Elm
    I bought this originally for the vintage bathroom in our first house and then didn’t use it there because the room was too small. The bathroom’s a little larger in this house though, and it fits perfectly.

  9. Schoolhouse Numbered Hooks, Pottery Barn
    These are up, and you’ve seen them already because I used ‘em to announce baby number three!

  10. Pharmacy Accessories in Amber Glass, Restoration Hardware
    The sink has a built-in (unfortunately shell-shaped) spot for the soap, but I like the look of these for the room.

  11. Painted Claw Foot Tub
    I’ll choose a color for the tub from the wallpaper, like this lovely green.

Two more months! I’m so eager to get started!

Making it Yours 11B: French Modernist Armchair

First, thank you for all the kind words on yesterday’s announcement! It feels great to finally be able to share the news of baby number three.

Now, onward! We’re continuing with Monday’s Making it Yours, featuring the French Modernist Armchair. It was paired with a green sofa the first time around, and plenty of feminine pattern (very much my style). This time, we’re going fairly neutral, with plenty of natural textures to mix things up. Plus one very interesting (read: possibly ugly) rug. I’ll show you at the end of the post the difference that having a crazy rug like that makes compared to something very safe and neutral. I think it makes the room.

And now for comparison, we have the crazy, bold rug vs. the simple, neutral one from Monday’s design. They both look fine, but I like the off-kilter drama the bold rug brings. Which one do you like better?
