Downstairs bathroom: (In Progress) paint, art and a cornice

Last we saw the downstairs bathroom, it was beige with holes in the ceiling and I was planning on putting a pink/red/purple combo in there.

Then I changed my mind.  Sadly, you can barely tell that the below picture is a different color than the above.  The above picture is an ugly beige; in the below picture the bathroom is painted Valspar's Pink Wink, a very pretty pale blush color.

I bought a chiang mai dragon remnant on ebay and framed it in gold bamboo frames I thrifted a few years ago.

I originally tried to make the remnant into a cornice, but it didn't work out.  So I bought some pink/orange/green fabric and trimmed it with some greek key trim. I asked on instagram which fabric I should use and nobody picked this one, but the Mister liked it, so that's what we went with.

The other side of the room is not going so well; we'll discuss that tomorrow.  


  1. Great colors! I love the fabric choice and that green mirror is great! That chiang mai dragon fabric is still one of my favorites.

  2. I like the combination of the two fabrics. Good choice.

  3. That Chai Ming Dragon is one of my all time favorite fabrics! So happy to see it framed. Love the cornice- great job!
