Jenn's "Vintage Natural" Bathroom

Vintage Natural




Toronto, Canada



Colors Used

Behr Paint - 'Ashes' Green, Ferm Living Wallaper White. birch, pops of gold, blue, and red

Color Inspiration

The age of my home meant that I wanted the bathroom to reflect the same aesthetic, so I chose a vintage-looking gray, and paired it against the vibrant green in the wallpaper, anchored by the freshness of the white.

Color Tips

Most importantly, you have to know who you are before you can know what colour - or how much colour - you can live with. For me, less is more.

I love your bathroom! The eclectic details and of course, that wall paper, make it realistically cool and charming.

PS, is the plate the one Anthropologie sells? It is beautiful.

Wow, this is amazing! I wish I had this bathroom. It looks like an Anthropologie product shoot, in a really good way!

@Canidice & River - the sink is the Kohler Brockway
@laurennoel33 - it's the Fords Mill from Rejuvination, without any shades - I had edison bulbs in there, but one broke :/
thanks for the votes!

My goodness, this is hands down my favorite bathroom that I have EVER seen! The sink is striking, but everything just ties together so well. Nice work!

Stunning, stunning, stunning. Absolutely my favourite bathroom ever. That means all design blogs, web sites, friend's homes, magazines, tv shows, etc...

I'm thinking about this sink for my kids' bathroom... but wanted to paint the base a different color than the black it comes in. How easy was it to paint? What kind of paint did you use? Thanks so much!
