I have to admit to being somewhat of a sucker for the color of Jadeite. It must have something to do with Martha Stewart. I collected it for a while in the 90's but found I enjoyed the color more when I use it as an accent color in fabric and knobs etc. as opposed to having too much.
This is a nice little bathroom with a large shower and wonderful vintage inspired toilet and pedestal sick from Waterworks. The fixtures are brushed nickel from Rohl. I like the simplicity of the mirror but it was really lacking in some pumped up vintage color to compliment all of the nice black and white tile work.
Enter Rejuvenation catalog.
One of my all time favorites for vintage inspired lighting & in the last few years they have begun reproducing bath and kitchen fixtures to compliment the period lighting. The Jadeite green is so fun in this little bathroom.
Along with a pair of sconces, I purchased a toilet paper holder, small towel hook (which doubles as a flower vase holder) and the tooth brush goodie. I like ice cream buckets for trash cans!
The floor tile is a small 1/2 inch mosaic of tumbled marble and the walls and shower are just simple 4x4 porcelain nicely arranged
I added the fun vintage post cards, all found on ebay, of various locations around Newport Beach. We had them framed with little photo edges and a really narrow black frame
Here is a close up of one of the post cards: It says "Yachting, Balboa, California"
Bath hook as vase holder, Nantucket inspired!
I used the simple Jadeite glass pulls on the cabinet doors and more Nantucket inspired baskets for extra towels
The detail in the shower is really simple but using the 1/2 inch tiles as a detail is a great idea and very inexpensive.
Here is a close up of the sconces (not the best photo) but they are porcelain and very 50's. I found the great green "No Vacancy" sign and thought it would be fun over the mirror. I am such a sign junky it's not even funny anymore. Some one please help me!!!
Take a look again at the before picture and I think you will agree that in the New/Old bathroom color really matters
Have a wonderful weekend and try not to get too crazy out there!
