Canvas print: c/o Easy Canvas Prints
We moved into our house over Labor Day weekend in 2013... and we still haven't finished decorating. Sure, the rooms are set up and the house is all in order... but there's hardly anything on the walls—a mirror and one or two framed pieces—but it's just not finished yet. And that's OK with us... we haven't really found the "time" (because who has time, anyway?) to do it yet, so it all currently sits either waiting to be hung or taking up shelf space in the garage while we take our sweet time to get to it.
One of the rooms we have changed the most is the powder room right off the front hallway. When we moved in, it was painted a deep red. We decided to paint it a pale shade of blue and decorate it with a light, airy beach theme. Though the pieces haven't all quite come together yet, we do have a small basket of shells and starfish that Daniel has collected over the years, and we just got this amazing canvas print made from a photo that I took last summer when we visited Whidbey Island. Our favorite thing to do when we visit Whidbey is go for long beach walks, scouring the rocks for agates. The canvas above shows a glowing agate that I found... they are just the coolest!
I can't wait for the rest of this bathroom to come together. I plan on framing a couple more of the photos I took on Whidbey, and adding a few neat vintage pieces to complete the room. I think the most fun part about owning a house is making it your own—and making it your home. And every home is such a reflection of the person who lives in it... I just love that. So while this may be just a tiny bathroom, it is our little tiny bathroom. Love it and all its beachy-ness.
