Final Reveal – The Bathroom Makeover – One Room Challenge

It’s Week 6 of the One Room Challenge which means ding, ding, ding, times up! Words can’t even express how excited I am about the bathroom makeover. I mean wow! The transformation is crazy, and I honestly can’t believe I live here. It’s wacky and crazy and out there and pretty much describes exactly what happens in my brain. Like if you were a really tiny person and crawled into my ear to have a look around, I would imagine this is exactly what you’d see. Are you prepared for this? Put yo’ pinky rings up to the moon. Whoop, whoop!

An antique dresser was converted into a bathroom vanity. I love the eclectic wallpaper by House Of Hackney - Empire Midnight. I love the Clé Tile Cubicon cement tiles on the floor paired with white subway tile.

The goal for this bathroom was if you are a guest in my house and in the need of the lavatory, you will walked in here and forget to pee. Gerry my man, you did one hell of a job. Seriously, you brought everything that was in my head to life. If you live in the Chicago area and are in need of an amazing contractor, give this guy a buzz…and no he’s not paying me to say this. He just did an amazing job for one of the toughest clients on the planet…me.

Design Crush: Decorating With Rattan

While perusing Chairish’s outdoor furniture selection, I stumbled upon this fancy rattan chair. The Boy had just okayed purchasing patio furniture, so the search was on.

Here was quite possibly the prettiest rattan chair I’ve ever seen. There was no way in H-E-double hockey sticks this chair would be sitting outside on my patio. But what to do with it??? I had already committed to purchasing. As you all know, I kinda have a love affair with chairs. An addiction one might call it…or at least that is what The Boy calls it…and decorating with rattan was never really my thing. I mean, I did have a Franco Albini ottoman, but that was it. How would this boho rattan look with my mid-century modern clean lines. Well, I was about to find out.
