After much debating of where to start decorating we decided to tackle the main floor bathroom first, as it is the smallest room in the house, which made it also seem the easiest. Smashing down the builder’s default tacky towel rod and toilet paper holder, we began the job of plastering and painting the room with a fresh coat of white paint, and painting an accent chevron wall.
For the chevron wall we used painter’s tape lined up to carefully measured points to make our pattern, and painted the sections left uncovered by the tape in black.
We also picked up a new mirror, Ung Drill from Ikea, which I spray painted red while Alex hung a Umbra’s Zen chrome towel ring and toilet paper holder.
We love how the new black and white chevron wall room adds huge impact when you first enter the house.
