Oh man, this one gives me the giggles. I can’t even imagine the thought process that went into this before bathroom. But I’ll try. “Dear, I’ve had a vision for the half-bath. Close your eyes. See it with me. Picture being swaddled in grapevines. A space where topiaries abound. Where wildflowers sprout from the cracks in a faux brick wall. Where heavenly clouds float high above on the popcorn ceiling. You’re no longer in a bathroom dear, you’re in your very own secret garden! Can you hear the chirping of baby birds? The tinkling of the waterfall? Wait. There is no waterfall, that’s uh, something else. Anyway, it’ll be the most magical pit-stop in all the neighborhood! ”
While there is no doubt this mural was conceived in love and executed with talent, it had long overstayed its welcome. Jessica had lived with and laughed at it long enough, and was ready for a clean slate that was more her style. She ripped up and replaced everything from the ceiling to the floor, and while it may no longer inspire you to break into a Disney song upon entering, it sure looks fantastic now.
