Beach Bathroom

This beachy bathroom is my new favorite. I am in love with the textures. Wood over wallpaper over beadboard with glass and mirrors and tile. Genius if I do say so myself. My inspiration for the bones of this design was the wall of cabinets with the sink cabinet pulled foreword. And wallpaper with a beadboard chair rail was so wacky that I just had to try it.
At the left is the door to a hallway or the master bedroom. The glass above the door brings light into this window-less room and tells that this is an older house with lots of architectural detail, like the crown moldings and beadboard chair rail. Just inside the door is the double sink vanity. The cabinet is light wood and the counter is light blue stone. The glass tile blue and white backsplash leads up to the inset brown medicine cabinet at the left and the tall cabinets on the back wall. These cabinets are made of light wood, just like the vanity. On top of them are baskets. There is lots of towel storage in this ocean side bathroom. At the right side of the cabinetry is a full-length mirror with dark wood trim and a dramatically framed black and white floral photo. The floor is white heated tile with a blue mat in front of the sink area. The wallpaper is my favorite part. Modern retro wallpaper is definitely coming back, and this modern blue retro pattern is super cool. To keep the room sophisticated, I kept a neutral color scheme and used accents of blue in the frame, backsplash, and mat.

If walls could dream... they'd dream of marrying wallpaper and beadboard to create a gorgeous, nautical bathroom.
