Master Bathroom

Our master bathroom got one of those really deep cleans yesterday.  You know the one with all the bleach, lysol and even toothbrush in all the corners type of clean.  So of course I had to take some pics after I created a really simple vignette on the counter.

This is the view as you enter the doorway from the bedroom.

Not really a big bathroom, but it works for us.

The counter is just big enough for double sinks and a small vignette.  The door to the left is the walk in closet and the door straight ahead is to the "necessary room".

 I had a floral arrangement here, but I thought the feathers looked more cozy, so I changed out the accessories.  Love this clock and the pic of my grandson when he was little.  (Hard to believe he is now 21) He is coming for a visit tomorrow night, I can hardly wait.

 I have really enjoyed all the Frenchy looking bathroom accessories that I found at Home Goods last year, I think they add tons of character and this room has none.

 A view towards the tub and you can see the shower in the background.  The walls are painted Valspar Fioli Antique Lace and I found towels that are almost identical to the walls.  Makes the bathroom appear bigger to not have too many contrasting colors.  Since I am using soft aqua as an accent color in the bedroom, I bought some aqua hand towels to coordinate in here. Handtowels are an inexpensive item to give a bathroom new character.  You can see the master bedroom post here.

I love my magnifying telescoping mirror, perfect for these old eyes to see how to put my makeup on.

 A view of the side wall showing the tub and shower.  I love all the light from the window, plus it keeps the bathroom nice and warm too.

 The picture has the same tones as the walls and towels, plus the frame matches the light fixtures.

 Simple and clean.  Can't get better than that.

Ok, now I need to finish the deep cleaning in the rest of the house.  I noticed that all the baseboards need painting.  Yuck, hate that job, but maybe I can get myself geared up to get it done while it is cool.

  1. Your bathroom is very similiar toours. What do you have on the window over the tub? Is it that widow film???? If so where did you get it? We have a pull down shade on ours right now but I want to replace it with something that lets the light in but provides privacy. XO, pinky

  2. Your bath looks so fresh and clean! I have been moving stuff and cleaning too. Doesn't it make you feel good to scrub everything down!! Hugs, Penny

  3. marty you always inspire me to do better. I need to get into some deep cleaing projects as well. Love the touch of aqua!
    happy Tuesday,
    xo kathysue

    PS go to the neighborhood some really good news there!! xo

  4. You have a beautiful bath. I love all of the French touches.

  5. Hi Marty,
    Why don't you bring that toothbrush and lysol over to my house and start making my bath look as pretty as yours.


  6. Looks great! I gotta get busy :-)

  7. Looks beautiful Marty! Love the touch of aqua! Just perfect!

  8. You have a great size master bath Marty, I LOVE the feathers!! I always feel so good when I deep clean a room!

  9. What a lovely master bathroom you have Marty! I love your touch of aqua. Enjoy your evening, Gail

  10. Your master bath is gorgeous!I love doing that deep cleaning!How do you get your shower door to sparkle like that?Our water is so hard it's hard to get it to really shine.It always looks so dull from the hard water.

  11. Miss Marty, your energy level puts me to shame!! I absolutely love the French accents in your bathroom, and the feathers are fantastic! Thank you, by the way, for stopping by my blog this week!

  12. Marty, Your bathroom looks amazing :) Love the way you display the towels! ~Pernilla

  13. How inspiring, Marty! I always say I got to get to my master bedroom and bathroom redo. I hope I get to it this year, but than we have our daughter's wedding, so who knows. I love the vignette with the feathers and French look too! Thanks for sharing.

  14. Hi Marty, You may think your bathroom is small but you do have a separate shower and tub-we only have a combo(which I hate). I love your colors and your accent pieces in French. Have a great evening.
    Hugs, Noreen

  15. Marty, what a pretty bathroom. I love the colors, especially the pops of aqua and the texture and colors of the feathers.

    Have a great day.

  16. Your bathroom is beautiful. I love the accessories you have from Home Goods. I have the same ones in one of my bathrooms. Gives such a nice French look. Love the color scheme of your bathroom as well.

  17. You have a real nice bathroom, Marty! It looks like it is probably about the same size as ours, except we don't have a tub and our shower is in with the toilet in a separated area. I love the natural light you get in here. The thing I hate the most living in a condo is not having windows in rooms where I had windows in every room in our old house.

  18. Marty, your bathroom looks great! Love all the accessories and the colors!

  19. Your bathroom looks squeaking clean Marty. I love all the light in the room and the way you accessorize it.

  20. Hi Marty! Just checking to see if you would be interested in doing a Scentsy Review/giveaway. Let me know if you would and I can get with you on the details. :)


  21. Your bathroom is the perfect! How sweet the fella is now 21...time flies doesn't it! What a cutie he was!!!

  22. I'd love it if someone would come here and give my bathroom the once over. Isn't is just the best feeling to have it all clean and fresh. It looks beautiful and I love how you have such charming little vignettes in every room of your house.

  23. Marty, I need to hire you to do some consulting work on my place. I feel lost with so much to do, and my creative energies are drained. Love how you've decorated the master bath. Maybe I should just post pictures of my place and ask everyone for help? Yvonne

  24. I just touched up my French inspired bathroom as well (latest post), but I wish mine were as big as yours! I am coveting that gold clock. It all looks great.


  25. Marty,
    I love the light, bright Master Bathroom, dear friend!!!The vase holding the feathers is exquisite! The coolness of the Aqua gives a subtle contrast to your elegant towels on the towel bar. Nothing like "freshening the bath" to lift one's spirits!!! Enjoy your grandson...his childhood photo is adorable!!!

  26. OK, now you can come deep clean my bathroom! LOL! Your bathroom may not be large but I love the layout. I think it's just the right size. I always enjoy looking at how you accessorize too. I like the frenchy french look, the way you have your towels layered and that you have enough room on your sinks for a floral design in the middle. It's all very pretty!

  27. Marty, your bathroom looks wonderful! So fresh and clean! The accessories on your counter look so pretty. Love the colors. Very elegant! You won't believe me, but that is my project for the day also. It has been on my to do list all week and today is the day! LOL

  28. I love those cleaning projects, it is hardwork but so rewarding and fresh feeling when it is done. The bathroom looks great.


  29. Your bathroom vignette is so pretty! That's my next project. I just got rid of a big out dated potted faux plant and my area between the two sinks is empty. This is light and pretty. I get so many of my ideas from you, Marty! Always inspirational!

  30. It's a beautiful bathroom, Marty!..Christine

  31. Your bathroom is gorgeous, Marty! Makes me want to go clean mine now! :) Thanks for visiting my blog today. I had a give away for a Scentsy warmer up and took it down to make some changes. Please come back and enter the give away. I'd love to see you win. :)

  32. What a pretty bath, Marty! Love the soothing colors and all of the bright light! Beautiful!

  33. It is always fun to create new vignettes after we totally clean a room...Love the vignette and have always admired your bathroom accessories.!...So pretty Marty!!
