~today I am loving~

Do you love this or hate this?
I go back to this photo from Coastal Living over and over again.

I want to re-do our guest bath with reclaimed wood like this.

I just love it!
Happy St. Patrick's day to you all!
It's my husbands birthday today so I am off to cook and clean and get ready for company!

Hate is too harsh of a word but I could not do something this rustic. I think it would get a bit tiring but I like things a bit more finished. I think in the right home where rustic and distressed is the look it is perfect. I think you have amazing taste so I can see why you love it. Go for it!!! Kathysue

Hate...no. But don't LOVE it because I'm not sure I would ever feel like it was real clean.

Oh, I love it! It just may very well become an inspiration for a room around my place!

I love the hutch! Not too crazy about the chippy walls. I too would feel it needed to be cleaned all the time. Happy Birthday to your Hubby!

I think its adorable as its not your typical bathroom look. When I was in Maui I bought two photo frames that are made out of what looks like similar wood well the colors at least. The frames are made out of old wooden boat docks and then painted in the light blues, creams and faint yellows. So seeing this photo reminds me of my photo frames. Enjoy celebrating your husband's bday!

Anna said...

I like it, but the walls look a little too unfinished, maybe if they were all one color, like that turquoise, and with some distressing

Destiny said...

I love the wood AND the color scheme! Very coastal cottage! My bathroom is the one room in the house (other than my daughter's rooms)that I used a lot of color - mostly blues and greens. It's so calming and relaxing!

Tess Murphy said...

Love! But have to imagine, it might be hard to keep clean.

I'm not a fan of it. I think the colors are nice but it's too rustic to the point of looking junky and careless. You know how you can look at a room years after it's decorated and it will still look fresh? This isn't one of those, I think this level of rustic is faddish and will look tired really quickly. Of course if this was a changing room by the lake with a long basin sink it would be great, but I can't see it being intentional or in a house.

I love it! I think it could use an awesome vase of flowers and it would be very cool!

Cherie W. Martin, Leigh Phillips said...

Love using reclaimed wood! DO IT! It will be BEAUTIFUL!

Angie said...

I love it, but it would make my husband cringe so I could never take it to that extreme. But, I could do some of it and make us both happy. I say go for it.

The Vintage-Flea said...

Love it.. My next store will be more coastal themed and this would be perfect for the walls. In a residental setting.. maybe one wall would be better than the whole room. Looking forward to seeing your new pillow designs.

Sheri Howard said...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Although walls in a bathroom would be difficult to clean...but any other room would make me happy!

Nancy said...

I saved this pic a while ago and look at it often! Needless to say, I love it! The colors, the casualness, that cabinet, it's all fab.
