Navy Blue Bathroom

Pin It!
I'm so excited that my navy blue bathroom is finished. This is one of the few rooms I've been able to design from the ground up - from the flooring to the tile -  to the paint & accessories. I got almost everything I wanted. {Please click the blue bar below to see more.}


One thing that I am really happy with is the flooring. It looks just like wood, but it's really tile. Because tile can get wet and it's low maintenance, it's a better choice than wood for bathrooms. One thing I wanted, but it wasn't in the budget - is an antique dresser made into a vanity. This wooden one is great though. 
The subway tile is a classic that I just couldn't resist & the grey grout highlights the shape of the tiles. Plus, grey is easier to keep clean than white. 
I scoured the internet until I found the perfect shower curtain {you can find it here} & it looks fantastic with the white walls, navy blue ceiling & wood finishes. This is one of my many key collections which I keep in a shadow box. 
I'm pretty sure our foreman thought I was nuts when I said I wanted a navy blue ceiling. But I absolutely love it! AND I saved $200 by painting it myself. The color is New York State of Mind by Benjamin Moore. 

I had my heart set on an antique mirror with a wooden frame. It took a long time to find this one - when I did it was only $20. I thought I would replace the glass because it has some scratches on it, but we decided we liked it better the was it was. 
It also took a lot of searching to find this navy blue striped rug. It's a little smaller than I planned, but other than that it's perfect. 
Sometimes it pays to think outside the box. For instance, the navy striped towels over the white towels are actually for dishes - not the bathroom. But they look great. The white tray is also for the kitchen, but it was perfect to hold the accessories on this small counter space.
