As much as I loved the colorful rug I included in our previous plans, I couldn't justify spending $70 on it, especially when my husband hated it.
Also, even though I really wanted a neutral rug from the beginning, I thought the space was too neutral with the black and white art and black and white pelmet box. I thought I should add some color but admittedly, I think I went a little color-crazy with my rug selection haha
Needless to say, I wasn't loving the overall direction of the room so I went back into planning mode! I also went back to the idea of having a neutral bath mat. I found this one from Crate & Barrel and instantly fell in love:
I love how the diamond shape in the rug is similar to the shape of the lotus pendant's leaves:
When I was searching for a new bath rug, I stumbled upon this beautiful blue ikat fabric (that also has a diamond pattern):
It was the last yard available so I bought it even though it was pretty expensive ($30/yard). I plan on using it for the pelmet box above the window. I won't need to use much fabric in the water closet so I'll be using the remaining yardage to make another pelmet box for the window above our shower! Two pelmet boxes for the price of one is a win-win for me :D
I wanted to find a basket that we could store extra toilet paper rolls in. I happened to find a $6 one at HomeGoods that was perfect!
The texture is exactly what I was looking for and the braided detail is an added bonus!
When everything is all said and done, the room will look something like this Photoshopped mock up:
And that makes me happy!
