This is our downstairs bathroom.
If you have followed the blog for more than a hot minute you have seen it before.
Just between us?
I love this bathroom.
I love the tile floor.
I love the vintage heater.
I love the painted ceiling treatment that we created in an afternoon.
I love the mirror that I stood in front of on my wedding day.
But again—just between us.
Don’t you think it’s missing something?
Don’t you think it needs a little 2021?
I wanted to give it a makeover.
A new look.
A little before and after to kick off what is going to be an amazing year. I wanted it to be a sanctuary – a retreat from the chaos of the outside world. A place where I can live a little better.
So I changed it up a little.
The bathroom that used to look like this?
Looks like this.
Just to make sure you are in the same bathroom.
Scroll up to the first picture.
And then scroll back down.
Please tell me you love this color as much as I do.
Isn’t it amazing?
It’s Let It Rain SW 9152.
The color is soft and subtle with a depth that the bathroom needed. It makes the tile pop and the molding look classic and crisp and clean.
My husband loved it so much he asked me if we could paint the outside of the house this color. I told him the house and I would think about it.
We remodeled this bathroom when we first moved into the house. See the back room with the shower? It originally went all the way through to the kitchen on the other side. There was a bathtub there with a door that opened up right by the back door.
We removed the door, walled it in, took out the bathtub and made a shower instead. This ended up being the perfect solution for guests that stay downstairs and created a private area for them. This shower room was originally painted Extra White SW 7006.
When we painted the central area of the bathroom, we decided to paint this room as well and we layered in the color Silver Strand SW 7057.
It is the prettiest light gray color that adds another dimension to this tiny space and opens it up and gives it its own personality.
The color gray is similar to the grout color that we used for the tile in the shower.
Even the towels match perfectly.
And as pretty as this paint is?
There’s something even more amazing about it.
You see, these two colors Let It Rain SW 9152 and Silver Strand SW 7057 are part of the
Sherwin-Williams new Living Well™ collection of palettes and innovative paint products designed to help you do more with the spaces in your home.
We painted the bathroom with SuperPaint® Interior with Sanitizing Technology in a Satin finish. It’s a paint that effectively sanitizes walls 24/7* and helps prevent the spread of bacteria on painted surfaces—which is perfect for a room like a bathroom. There are 11 palettes in this collection, including Balance, Breathe, Center, Create, Focus, Inspire, Recharge, Reflect, Renew, Unplug and Unwind.
I chose Let it Rain SW 9152 and Silver Strand SW 7057 from the Unwind palette because this beautiful calm blue layered in with the light gray helps me feel grounded and refreshed. It’s like a spa at my very own home. To complete the spa-like feeling, I added sugar scrub and lemon verbena soap at the sink, along with thick, freshly washed towels and drawers full of lotion and room spray.
I can’t even begin to tell you how special this bathroom makes me feel.
It’s the oasis I need to start 2021 off with a fresh perspective.
And now that we’ve taken the bathroom and our paint to the next level.
I’m looking at you.
Let’s get this party started.
It’s time for a new chapter and a new beginning and a new start.
And if this makeover is any indicator….
….it’s going to be an amazing year.
