The toilet was leaking. Upon removal of the toilet, rotted and damaged floor joists were discovered. All of a sudden a minor replacement became a larger project! As long as we're doing ______, then we might as well also do _______. The larger project provided the opportunity to correct some other problems: bad lighting and low headroom for a mirror to be centered over the sink.
The only thing to remain was the console sink which was original to the house. It got an upgrade with silver leafed legs, a skirt and new faucet that mixes hot and cold together. The biggest design move is the Bradbury and Bradbury reproduction William Morris art wallpaper. Covering the walls and ceiling create the delightful sense of being inside a raspberry bush with the green tumbled marble as grass beneath your feet. Baseboard, window and door are wood grained to further the nature illusion. A wall sconce was moved from the entrance to over the toilet to improve lighting. A set of four mirrors creates balance.
