Here is the original inspiration board I made:
(links on Pinterest board)
I've already gone a different route on a few things (pretty much just the vanity), but we have already purchased the tub and tile for the shower and started the wondrous herringbone pattern on the walls. BEAUTIFUL, I tell you. I love this subway tile trend. And it's super cheap--like it cost $70 to get all of the tile. YES.
I am here today to ask a few questions.
First, how do you feel about mixing hardware finishes? I absolutely love it when I see it on Pinterest and blogs but am terrified to carry it out in real life. Well, not exactly terrified, more just stuck…there are too many pretty things and I can't decide!
I love the look of chrome faucets and hardware in a bathroom, (so clean! so sleek!) but I also love the rustic/farmhouse look of black/bronze. In fact, all of the light fixtures that we've added around our house are black so I'm trying to stick with that in the lighting department. And then there's GOLD. Oh, I love antiqued gold. Specifically for mirrors. But all of this together? I do not know.
A few photos that I love as general inspiration (and notice the metal mixing)…
(All pins are on my bathroom Pinterest board--it is a horribly curated board, literally just put together in my haste to do our bathrooms--some of the photos aren't my style…I just like specific aspects…yada yada yada… )
So my question #2 is… should I do the vanity lighting on either side of the mirror or above it? Chrome or black?
I am for sure getting a chrome faucet (see inspiration board), and we just bought this chrome shower head and faucet:
(from Home Depot)
I have a black/bronze sconce in the inspiration photo (which now I can't even find and I think is too expensive anyway), but I also like these options…
And then there's this gold wonder…too expensive, but if someone else wants me to put in their house, I totally will!
So, a little help here is key. I need it. I'm driving my husband crazy.
