Meet Lana & Joey, the fabulous blogging couple over at Making a House a Home. We’ve been tracking their house projects for quite some time now, and last week we were thrilled to see the big reveal of their Cobalt Blue Benjamin™ Bomber Porcelain Stem Light. In her blog post, Lana dished about her helpful family (lucky to have handymen as in-laws!) and the rest of her plans for her bathroom remodel!Read More
If your bathroom still has its mid-century porcelain fixtures—especially if they are powdery pink!—it might be time for an upgrade! While we find this little feminine lavatory charming, its look is quite dated. We were, however, inspired by its details and palette and decided to perform our own imaginary remodel.
In our retro re-envisioning, we kept the aqua and blue hues and substituted the pink with classic white. Two of our other favorites elements were the white shag rug and streamlined wall sconces. The Whisper White Shag Rug would make a delightfully fluffy barrier between your feet and a cold tile floor, don’t you think? These Ultra Skinny Short ADA Sconces look extremely similar to the originals. They give this bathroom update a little modern flair. Amy Butler’s creative Shower Curtain is reminiscent of the original shower curtain; its aqua repeating pattern paired with these terry cloth Hand Towels’ add lots of energy and fun.
We’d recommend swapping out colored porcelain fixtures for traditional white finishes. The Pomezia 27” Console Stand Kit has the same look of the freestanding porcelain sink from the image. Beneath it, there’s space to store baskets full of towels or toilet paper rolls! This Oval Mirror with Swivel mount allows you to adjust your reflection, and its polished nickel finish coordinates perfectly with the vintage Standing Soap Dish and Crest Hook. If you still want colorful pops of porcelain, consider the Ivanhoe™ Marathon Porcelain Pendant. With vibrant finishes like jadite and cobalt blue, these shades would be a great way to incorporate more cool colors into this space!
Still missing the pink? This Champagne and Raspberries Handcrafted Soap gives a nod to the retro design while smelling rather delicious!
