This is a before and after of my black, white and french bathroom makeover.
This 80s bathroom was in desperate need of a makeover as you can tell by the photo.
Of course I wanted to make it French but I decided to mix things up a bit this time and keep the fixtures modern.
It shows how you can mix modern and traditional or vintage together and even mix golds and silvers together.
There’s a lot of detail in this little room but it’s still a very simple overall design.
I can’t wait to show you my black, white and French powder room!
Decorating a small powder room is fun. It’s a little space to decorate how you like.
I stencilled this one wall in here on a whim. While the kids were watching a movie, I did this whole wall in about an hour with some grey paint, a stencilling brush and this stencil from Fusion Mineral Paint called Illegible Script.
Anything would be an improvement from this before photo!
The door holds the one glass knob in my entire house…I had to have at least one and the powder room was the perfect place for it.
The silhouettes were made of my kids when they were both 18 months old and I had them framed in gold frames.
I found this vanity at the Restoration Hardware Outlet store. It was chipped in a few places so I painted it in this charcoal grey and had a quartz countertop made for the top that matches the kitchen.
The faucet, towel bar and toilet paper holder are from Delta Faucets Trinsic line.
I used the same black and white basketweave tile that was used in the kids’ bathroom.
The crock is now pretty garbage can.
I love the mix of old with new and gold with silver.
And of course black and white. There are so many elements but it’s still so classic.
This soap bar and little pottery dish I brought back from France last year. I wish I brought back more of them!
I’m so happy with the way this bathroom turned out.
