From stinky pink to super chic.

From stinky pink to super chic.

I’m sure there are a few people out there who appreciate an all-pink bathroom. Brit wasn’t one of them. But it wasn’t just the pink that was so offensive … it was the stink.  The stink that can only come from the most sinful of all bathroom decorating practices: wall-to-wall carpeting.  Why hasn’t this been outlawed already, seriously? Call your congressman today.  Other notable features included an even ancient-er layer of brown linoleum under the carpet, lacy cat curtains, and strangely rubbery wall tiles topping off every other available surface.

For Brit, the only possible solution was rip it down to the studs and create a completely modern and pink-free bathroom landscape in it’s place. Believe it or not, everything is still in the same general location, even though it looks insanely different. Don’t you want to rub up against all that penny tile?  Just me then?  Much more to see on her blog House Updated.

    Where’s the shower curtain? I would splatter soap and water EVERYWHERE in that bathroom.

    She’s planning to hang one! Just a finishing touch that’s not quite up yet.

    My parents installed carpet in all 3 of their bathrooms….they don’t like the feel of cold floors. I beg them EVERY time to just get heated tile or buy a rug.
    Love the penny tile and wood sink!

    I’d love to see a couple splashes of color in there; maybe in the rug and hand towel (or future shower curtain). It looks great though!

    What is a cat curtain?

    Thanks Lindsey for sharing the bathroom and thanks everyone for taking a look! The “cat” curtains are crocheted curtains with cat patterns in them (look closely, the cats are at the bottom of curtains in the “before” shot). And yes, we need to hang the shower curtain rod (which is sitting in our basement!). Thanks again everyone!
