{Our Cottage} Master Bath & Bedroom

There has been a dry spell here at real estate style. Due to recent events, I had to take a break. I know you are all thinking we must have taken a long, fabulous trip for the Memorial Day weekend. Not at all! I was laid up in the house after having mouth surgery. Terrible, that's all I have to say. Now on to our house. I finally took some pics of our recently painted bedroom and bath. The walls are Benjamin Moore, Palladian Blue, half formula.
We added the bath on our existing screen porch in the spring of 2009. I am so happy with our Mercer Train rack from Pottery Barn. Great when you are short on storage.

The floor was from 12"x12" carerra marble tiles cut in half. I had them laid in a railroad pattern to mimic the subway tiles in the shower. Can I say that I am a HUGE fan of the double towel bar. We got our first one in our other bath, and it really is great. Even if I had a huge bathroom with plenty of wall space, I would still use a double. I think they not only save space, but they look nice. {Even better with clean, folded towels on them}

Please excuse the dirty rugs. Our vanity was custom with the extra tall height. Nice for us folks 5'9" +. The mirror is from Cash Liquidators in Forsyth. {They sell stuff from hotels} I think it was $30. I used the silver rub n' buff stuff because it was gold.

We have been so pleased with the final result in our small 1930's cottage. Going from one full bath to two makes a world of difference. The knee wall in the shower is covered in beadboard. We left the original beadboard ceiling from the porch, so wanted to tie that in.
Now on to the bedroom. The palladian blue walls make me very happy. Also, my headboard was a great find at a Pottery Barn outlet. I believe it's the Riley headboard. The outlets do not sell the slipcovers, so I found a new organic, white, twill one on ebay.

The lamps are a very recent purchase from TjMaxx in Newnan. I prefer not to pay retail for anything... Bedside table on the right is an old family piece, and the other is a table skirted in cheap old muslin. I was so happy to figure out the $3/yard muslin matched the background of my pillow fabric. It came from PJs Fabrics in Albany. I think the name is Marrakesh in Cobblestone.

The duvet was a steal from Overstock.

You may remember the new bench and el cheapo' gallery wall I posted about a few weeks ago. We are loving the bench! Really great for piling up stuff :)

So that's it. I didn't show the wall with our tv and dresser, because I am waiting for a new/used dresser from a friend that I am going to paint white. I also have plans for white cotton curtains. Maybe a seagrass rug too, we'll see!
