Bathroom - Done

Pete has actually finished the head (bathroom) and my office (captain's cabin!), so I thought you deserved some photos.  Today I present the bathroom.....



I love our turquoise tiles, they are such a beautiful colour, but this is quite hard to see in the pictures.  The heated towel rail came from a job that Pete did.  It is brand new, but the lady of the house decided it was the wrong colour and wanted it changed.  She was going to bin this one until Pete stepped in!  It is perfect for us and it makes such a difference to get up to a nice warm bathroom in the morning - I know, getting soft in my old age.  In the spirit of reusing and recycling the cupboard door is made from old floor boards (Pete is so clever).  All the walls and woodwork are painted in a very soft grey.
We painted the floor with some masonry paint, not sure the blue is such a good idea, it shows every bit of fluff, dust etc, but it will do for the time being :)
All the bathroom needs now are the final touches, I have pictures etc that will be perfect but they are going to have to wait until I can unpack the spare room at the house where a lot of our 'stuff' is stored.
Tomorrow I will show you the office, but first I have to work out how to get the right light to take some decent photos.....

  3. What has happened to Nelson's hardy sailors.
    Have they all gone soft - I mean you could just jump over the side when the sun shines and go for a quick run around the deck to dry off.

    Mel - how do you know that we don't run round the decks naked? Maybe we are tougher than you think ­čśť

  5. Hello Fran,

    You must be thrilled with your lovely warm new bathroom. The tiles are very stylish, such an interesting colour. And, how cleverly thought out it all is. You seem to have fitted in so much into what must be quite a small space. Perfect!

  6. Love the coloured tiles. The finishing touches are the best part of decorating for me - when everything comes together in harmony.

  7. Jane & Lance - thank you, it took quite a bit of moving stuff around before it was fitted to make the space work :) xxxx

    Jane - thank you, the tiles are actually a bit more turquoise than the picture shows and you are right, it won't be really finished until the last details are in. That's the fun bit and I cannot wait :) xxx

  11. Hello Fran, I love the tile. I think that turquoise in a bathroom always looks so clean and spa like . . . very pretty. I like your sink, too. Now, tell me is that one of those washer drier combos? We don't have them in the states and I can't imagine why not . . . they save so much space.
    I'll be keeping a watchful eye out for your office post.
    Have a happy day!
    Connie:)

  15. It's been a while since I've checked in on you. Bathrooms may be small, but they are hugely important. Glad to see yours is come to completion and it looks very fine. You even have laundry. Where you are now, do you have sewer hookup? - Margy

  16. Dear Sweet Fran, have you fallen overboard? You have friends out here that miss you and value your friendship. I do hope that everything is going well and that the reason you haven't been blogging is because your arms are filled with beautiful grand-babies:)
    You are missed.
    Connie :)
