I have a pink bathroom…

I have a pink bathroom, with a pink floor, a pink toilet, a pink tub and a pink sink…

I have a pink bathroom with a pink, tiled ceiling!!!!!

I have a pink bathroom with industrial-greige PAINTED OVER sparkly wall paper applied to crumbly plaster walls…

Jealous yet?!

I wouldn’t be.  Our house is circa 1909, so even though there is a wonderful movement to Save the Pink Bathrooms, mine isn’t indicative of the history of the home.  And it’s awful.  Reaaaaaaally awful.  I detailed the awfulness on my personal blog a couple of years ago and if you are brave you can read more about it here.

So, what’s my point?  Well, the other day I was catching up on my design blogs in my Google Reader and came across THIS gorgeous pink bathroom featured over at 6th Street Design School.

The owner of this delightful bathroom, Alexandra over at Luisa Designs, had a very similar bathroom to mine (although I’m not sure if she had pink tile on her ceiling) and she was able to make bubble gum out of Pepto Bismal in a way that I had never thought of before.

I truly appreciate how sophisticated this space looks now and think it would be an amazing way to transform our bathroom on a budget while we save to do a major overhaul in a few years.  Seriously…we don’t even have a photo in the bathroom, not to mention shelving…just check out how beautiful her glass shelves are with the apothecary jars she’s collected.  I can’t tell you how long I have coveted apothecary jars in my bathroom but figured it was never going to happen since we don’t have shelves.

And I am in love with her color combination.  Everything in the room is white or pink except for her towels and I think that really helps lighten the place up.

I am seriously inspired by this incredible bathroom makeover and can’t wait to get started on ours!

Do you have a shhhhhhhhh….pink bathroom….in your house?

    Love your inspiration. Ours is Yellow and Black not pink. And built just after yours.

    That said, did you know that you can paint tile?? Just sayin- it’s an option.
