Early last year I pulled together a mood board for our guest bathroom and posted it on my old blog. I thought now that we’re partway through our renovation it might be fun to revisit what I envisaged all those months ago, and compare it to what is becoming our reality.

In this post are the main images from that mood board, all of which I still love, but it’s interesting to see what has endured and what has changed. I have held tight to my dream of black tapware, that’s for sure. I thought it would work better in the guest bathroom with less use, which will hopefully lead to less scratching and general wear and tear. We’ve moved the bath upstairs, which makes way more sense with a toddler and another little one on the way. I loved the idea of a wall hung basin and searched high and low for one with clean lines, not too much heft (if a basin can even have heft?!) and it had to have a little shelf built in for functionality. I finally settled on this one from Reece. What do you think?

As for tiles, well, all my mood images were white, bright and simple. Along those lines, I’ve chosen white matt rectified tiles for the walls and, as mentioned the other day, delicious terrazzo on the floors. This was always going to be marble hexagonal mosaics but then one day I realised that marble wasn’t really all that ‘me’. I can’t wait to share the finished space! In the meantime, you can see some progress on my Instagram.
