A Wealthy & Moody Purple Lavatory

Plum bathroom with antique wood vanity

It’s fairly clear I take advantage of a spectrum of shades of pink, yellow and inexperienced as staple colours in my designs. However I needed to throw a new-to-me colour within the combine for this house—plum!

This purple toilet has bought me on utilizing deep plum, eggplant and wine tones in future areas. It feels so wealthy and moody and does occur to pair nicely with my favourite pink shades too.

My favourite different addition to this area was a touch of purple! It’s sudden and provides the stunning pop this area wanted.

Earlier than & After

Right here’s the place we began with this toilet. It had a soffit alongside the ceiling, an awkwardly positioned mild above the bathroom and a mirror that didn’t align nicely with the vainness.

We determined, like our major toilet, to maintain the structure intact for price range functions, however upgraded all the pieces else.

And under is the place we landed after eradicating the soffit, relocating the wiring and turning an vintage dresser into a conceit, which I’ll talk about extra under!

Right here’s a earlier than shot of the unique bathe. It had each a door and a bathe curtain, neither of which had been in good condition. Once more, we stored the structure as is…

Selecting the Shade Scheme

This eggplant tile was the kickstarter for this complete purple toilet. I beloved the variation in colours and the way darkish and moody it was. So completely different from a few of the extra vibrant tile I’ve used previously!

From there I knew I needed a monochromatic search for the paint, however I hadn’t fairly decided what accent colours I needed to include.

At one of many flea markets I frequent, I stumbled upon this floral portray and knew that it was the proper inspiration piece for the remainder of this area. I beloved that it had shades of pink, purple, burgundy, mauve and extra.

I pulled the muted pink tones into the roman shade and the pink zellige tile ground which was truly leftover from a earlier toilet renovation mission the place we weren’t ready to make use of it!

After which, I took a giant threat and went with a purple stripe for the bathe curtain! I really like the way it turned out.

Our Vintage Dresser Vainness Conversion

I had beforehand seen folks convert vintage dressers into vanities and was itching to do that for myself. I discovered a gorgeous vintage wooden and marble buffet from one in every of my favourite vintage sellers, Heirloom Classic Shoppe, that had probably the most stunning particulars and even already had a marble high!

To do that vintage dresser vainness conversion, we had our contractor’s staff take away the marble high and lower a gap for a (tiny however mighty!) sink I had bought.

Then, understanding I wanted a low profile faucet to clear the inbuilt marble shelf, I occurred to discover a classic brass faucet that couldn’t be a greater match. Our staff needed to work to get it functioning correctly as a consequence of it’s age however they did and I really like the patina it has. Feels so according to the age of the piece!

Lastly, with the intention to make room for the plumbing, they eliminated the fronts of the drawers from the drawer containers and easily positioned the fronts again in on their very own. So they’re completely hooked up to the piece in a faux-drawer type.

Incorporating Second Hand and Classic Finds in a Lavatory

Nearly each different decor factor of this area is classic as nicely.

The crystal pendants are a flea market discover that I had rewired and cut up into pendant-style sconces.

I ended up actually desirous to lean into floral motifs for this area so the pendants encompass an vintage mirror with beautiful floral etching. Even the towel ring is a classic decor discover.

For price range, texture and spacial causes, I needed to stay to a curtain vs glass door for this bathe. To deliver one graphic factor into the area, I selected a purple and white stripe sample.

This textile was truly a quilt cowl I discovered at a flea market, and lower and sewed right into a bathe curtain! Crimson and white stripes are one in every of my favourite patterns. They appear to face the check of time, and to me really feel sudden in the easiest way on this area!

Bathe curtains typically get a nasty repute as a result of they will have plastic liners or simply “dangle” there and never really feel intentional. However I disagree! With a couple of easy upgrades, like a fabric liner (that may be washed!) and a novel tie again, they will really feel fairly elegant.

This tie again is an vintage French swan neck curtain tie again that hangs down on the wall when not in use, and provides only a contact of attraction to this graphic curtain.

This toilet is small, however I feel in small areas, they’re typically excellent for deep, darkish and moody palettes. Embrace it!
