Half Bath Morrocan Inspired Makeover



Our half bath on the main floor is the only room in the house we did not paint when we moved in. It was about time for a change but for the longest time I did not know what i wanted to do with it. Ive been inspired lately by Moroccan design and that was the theme for our half bath. Chris was doubtful of the purple, he could not see my vision. I told him to relax and wait to see the finished product. After all was complete, he loved it and could not believe the transformation. Before our half bath was green...


I decided on a purple/metallic gold look. After I painted everything purple, I stenciled the main wall with a metallic gold color. I did not want to spend money on a new light fixture so I painted it the same color as the stencil. We added a shelf above the toilet with Moroccan inspired accessories...I am amazed at the transformation and wish I would have done this a while ago. I wish it was not a half bath because I do not want to leave the area.

  6. Wow! That purple is gorgeous! I would definitely drink the required 8 glasses of water per day if it meant spending more time in that bathroom!
