Old World Style~ it's about time!


This was a fun room to re-do.


It went from sassy and green ..

To crisp and clean!

Robin egg soaps...

tin holder for the paste..

friendly reminders to brush..

all at their fingertips..

I moved the sign over the tub...

because it just looked better.

An old world look....


I really like the look in here now. I think it's the colors and textures that draw me in.
Do you have a favorite "look" that you love?

  4. Aww...I love it! This is the look I want for my bathroom. Very neutral with lots of textures. I love your towel ladder, I've been wanting one of these. Do you mind sharing where you found it? Thanks, Lisa

  5. I love where you ultimately put the SHOWERS sign. Perfect! And I'm drooling over the ladder.

    You did a great job!

  6. I love everything!! The white and creams go lovely together and I like the fleur de lis curtain hooks, the little clock and the baskets for towels. Oh yes, the ladder!! Very Old World and beautiful!! :-)

  10. I adore the whole room. The colors and textures make it feel so relaxing. I love the sigh over the tub. How does hubby feel about it now? Really, the whole room came together perfectly.

  18. I love it! It has inspired me to once again try to do my downstairs bath. I can't seem to find the right accesories. Not sure if the colors are right in there either.

  19. I think the sign looks fab over the tub area. And I love that mirror--Home Depot, right? I need to update my laundry/powder room...including removing the huge Hollywood mirror and bulbs. Love that one you have.

  22. I love it!! So crisp and clean looking!! I had a ladder in my kids' bathroom too and it looked so cute. I got tired of hearing it crash to the floor though so I moved it out. Oh well!

    ReplyDelete
  23. It looks great Susie. The sign looks great above the tub. You've been teasing us, piece by piece. Seeing it all together is a treat!

    P.S. Come do mine!

  29. If your ladder is missing tomorrow, it wasn't me. I do love that ladder though. I like the sign better over the shower also, now it is the star of the show. Counting down the hours until Feb. 2nd.

    God Bless,

  37. O, Susie...the BEFORE was wonderful..the AFTER is AMAZING!
    I love every thing you did in here..the mirror over the sink is adorable but I'd have to say the SHOWERS sign is my very favorite. As you know, tho....I have a real thing for signs.
    O, and did you get the email about the sign I am wanting you to make for me WHEN YOU HAVE TIME ?
    You've done a magnificent job in here.....xo bj

  38. I really love this room! I am getting ready to redo our bathroom and cannot wait to use yours as inspiration!

    Thanks for sharing! I heart the shower sign!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Love the sign over the window. A spot that most people wouldn't think of decorating!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love your room redo.Everything looks great. I love the idea of the ladder for the towels. Out of the ordinary and unexpected. I agree, the sign looks better over in the shower area.
    Great job! thanks for taking us along on your redo. : )

  45. Wonderful..it's the little details, isn't it? I'm getting ready to start on my bedroom...yay! :) (wish the wallpaper would miraculously vanish so I wouldn't have to peel it!ha)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Love the before, but super LOVE the after. We went simple in our new nursery and I think sometimes that's just more soothing to the soul. You did a great job...again :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. I love it! I had my doubts when you went from green to white... it was such a pretty green, but I love it. The "shower" sign is the perfect finishing touch... wether your husband "gets" it or not...

    ReplyDelete
  48. You are my fav! I LOVE it!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love the crisp and clean. I am moving that direction in my guest bathroom. When my hubby travels, I paint. He's headed to CA in a few days. Hmmm....

    ReplyDelete
  50. it looks awesome! i love all the texture and the antiques mixed in with the new...so pretty!

    where on earth did you get those soaps?

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love the way you have worked with a lot of the things you already had, and used colour, texture and just a few beautiful accessories to really change the look and feel, so I guess this probably wasn't hugely expensive to achieve? I love the robin egg soaps!!
    Best wishes

  55. Love, love, love it! Great job, Ms. Susie, all perfectly pulled together. That could be in a magazine. Of course, I liked the green too, but this is a nice change.

    ReplyDelete

  60. That's fabulous! I love the mirror shelf combo and the robin's egg soap is so cute. I love how much personality you were able to inject into it. I've been working on a face lift for our bathroom but ours is taking forEVER. How long did this take you from start to finish?

    ReplyDelete
  61. Love love love it! The new mirror, the ladder, the robin's egg soaps...perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I love your new bathroom! I think the sign and the ladder are my favorite elements.

    I'm right with you on colors and textures. That and layers. I just love things that invite you to take a second look, when there's more than immediately meets the eye.

    Happy showering and brushing!

  73. I love the bathroom makeover. I really love the showers sign and the ladder that you use to hold towels. What a great idea. When I have kids, I would love a chalk board to leave them friendly reminders as well.

  81. Even though I am sad to see the green go - I must admit - the makeover looks great. It's all the shades of white in the accessories and textures that drew me in. Beautiful job as always.

  87. Hi Suzy,

    Did you already say where you found that mirror?

    ReplyDelete
  88. that is about the same size exactly of one of our kiddo bathrooms. Great ideas to warm it up. Questions for you.....how hard is it to take down those huge builder grade mirrors that take up practically the whole wall?

    ReplyDelete
  89. Love the makeover, but lOVED the sassy green too! am in love with the fleur de lis shower curtain rings!!! great job!

    ReplyDelete
  90. I have to say that I am so blessed to have found your blog. I have gotten so much inspiration from you just since yesterday and now I have so many projects I would like to do. I love your style. I am loving the shower curtain hooks here. I live in North Louisiana and would love some. Do you remember where you found them? Thanks so much for all your post. I will be a regular here.
