Mod Cottage Bathroom Redo

How we took our drab boring bathroom to fresh mod cottage!

Here is our upstairs bathroom before.

Our bathroom walls are just a simple white satin by Behr.
They were actually a lovely pastel seafoam green when we moved in.
It was BB (Before Blogging.)


With just a few simple touches we went from drab to fab.
A rustic vintage table I picked up from a local junk shop for $10.
There is not a lot of storage, so I used a large basket to roll up our towels.

I used a vintage wire basket to store the t. paper.

The 2 prints came from Dwellings. 
I've actually had them for several years.
From my apartment living days.
And a vase with a pop of fresh green.

I love nothing more than simple white walls. 
I think it really allows for the rooms colors and textures to stand out.
You can help let your warm wood tones stand on their own.
I love to do this when I have a vintage wooden piece I've added to a room.
I think the crisp white walls, rustic wooden table, and modern prints
are the perfect mod cottage mix.



  1. Love that table! What a warmth it brings to the space. And great idea putting the tp in that wire basket--cute!

  2. LOVE love Love all these textures and lines! It's so cool looking! AND I can totally relate to the BB way of decorating! I'm totally gonna use that! Absolutely fabulous job!

  3. Your bathroom looks fabulous. Love those prints, but especially the wood table and that ultra-chic wire basket!

  4. Hi Carrie, what a beautiful job you have done with your bathroom. It's absolutely gorgeous. I have found and am following you through Debbie's Newbie Party and hope to visit more often. Please visit me and perhaps follow me, I would love that. Hugs, Chris

  5. Beautifully done! I LOVE that table...what a score for $10! *cha-ching!*

  6. WOW! You did an amazing job--and I agree that ten dollar table is so perfect against the modern sense of the room. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Beautifully done! Love the mix of metal, rustic wood, green plant in a great vase and those stunning art prints. I wonder if I could duplicate those on my own? This bath looks welcoming now.

  8. This looks great, I love the art work-nice job!

  9. I can't decide which element I love the most - they are all so gorgeous.

  15. Fabulous black and white combination! Great job. Thanks for sharing.
    Hope to see you on my blog:)

  16. Lovely changes! I love the mix of modern prints with your rustic table. The white walls are a great backdrop for your art, too.

  17. Those wall art pieces are fabulous!!! They totally make that bathroom pop!

  18. It's so pretty. I think the large pieces of art is a touch of pure genius. Plus the wire baskets and the addition of the wood table does such a nice job of warming the room up. Love it.

  19. Hi, stopping by from WOW at Savvy Southern Style. I love your bathroom. So simple but so effective that at first I didn't realize it was a bathroom. My eyes went right to the browns of the table/prints and the greenery and then finally realized there was a toilet there. You are so right about the white walls really working with that great wood table. Thanks for sharing and for the inspiration. I'm off to see more of your blog now.

  20. LOVE it! Came by via Kim's SSS blog! That "junk" table is totally cool as are the baskets! AWESOME job!
