before and after

before & after: kirsten’s bathroom + janelle’s room

by Grace Bonney

sometimes a small change can make a big difference. and in the case of kirsten grove’s bathroom, all it took was a little wallpaper and paint. kirsten’s bathroom wasn’t in bad shape, but needed something to give it a bit more visual interest. so her loving husband painted the walls a crisp, clean white and wallpapered the ceiling in a sophisticated damask print and then- the kicker- kirsten repainted her mirror in a bold sunshine yellow. small details sometimes make all the difference in a tight space. i just love the way that yellow brightens up the room. great work, guys!
