Guest Bathroom Reveal

A few weeks ago I talked about our guest bathroom updates, and today I am finally here to post about it! I've had the walls re-painted for a while now, but I really hadn't completed the accessories until today. Today we had a new Home Goods store open literally 3 minutes from our house, so of course I had to stop in for the Grand Opening!!! It was pretty terrifying actually and I would never go to a Grand Opening again. I think my heart rate increased to an unhealthy rate due to the overwhelmingly large crowd, but needless to say I did survive. I left the store with a few goodies and finally found the perfect accessories to finish off the guest bath. Yippee!

FIY - the navy paint color on the walls is called "Night View" by Valspar. Really a great color! I totally plan on using it in other areas of my home. I actually also recently used in on my back porch makeover!





{ Before }


Sorry about the {before} picture! I was so excited about my new paint color and totally forgot to take a real {before} photo. But to give you a general idea, the walls were grey (which I loved) but my shower curtain, rug and other accessories didn't really match the grey. The room needed a "pop" of something, so I chose a much bolder color on the wall. I think it made a HUGE difference! What do you think??


{ After }























Much more exciting, right!?? 

Hope y'all enjoyed!

    1. Thanks so much!!

      The navy paint color is called "Night View" by Valspar. It's a really great color because its got a bit of grey in it as well!

  5. Amy I love this room! Yes, the perfect pop of color. I think we get worried that a dark color will overwhelm a small space, and the opposite is true, very beautiful!

  6. Oh I love it! I had wanted to paint my guest bah black originally but once it was up on the wall I realized I hated it. Lol! I love the color you chose though and the accessories are absolutely perfect! I'm completely jealous you have a Homegoods so close, but I know the damage I do in that store so maybe it's a blessing in disguise I'm so far from one now. :-) great photos as always. Xo

  8. Good morning, I'm visiting from Brenda's Cozy Little House blog. I love the bold color that you used in your bathroom~~~~also the bright colors that are accents. Every room needs a bit of red added. :o)

    I want to paint my living room and family room and would love to be as brave as you have been.. I think one of these days I'm just going to go for it..

    Your choice really turned out to be a good one.

    Have a lovely weekend.

    currently it is red... a deep red.
    not sure the black would work.. ?? but love it in your bathroom
    I have white & blk in my guest bathroom. but am ready for a change.. maybe just adding a different accent color would work.. Wish you hired out .. :-)
