Pretty Powder Room

I want a new bathroom soooooo bad!  It is the only room in the house that we haven't altered in any way and it drives me crazy!  It's small (not much you can do about that) and the color of butter (ech!).  I have sooo many plans for this cute little space.

This picture looks almost identical to the layout of our bathroom, and what makes it even better is that I want this floor!  The classic white hexagons with black squares in between has been a desire of mine for quite some time. 
Black and white has been a timeless combination that I always fall back on.  Usually pairing it with a bright pop of color, it can be classic and modern all at the same time.

Because the room is so tiny, I don't want to paint the walls any kind of color - just plan on painting them a crisp white.  And since white isn't usually on my visually stunning color wheel, I need to give that pop somewhere else.  Where, do you ask?  The ceiling, of course!

Now, granted, this is a dining area, but the idea is the same. The walls are white and the purple ceiling literally jumps out at you. But the fact that it is up high rather than on all four walls means that they won't feel like they're closing in on you.  Purple isn't exactly gender neutral, so I was thinking a nice apple green :)


Even though I toy with the idea of an adorable pedestal sink, in reality, it won't provide the storage that we so desperately need. But if it was a perfect world, this would be my sink:

This is a project I plan to tackle in the next few months, so we shall see how it goes :)
