Here we are, at Week 5 of the One Room Challenge. I can’t believe I’m five weeks in because there is so much left to do before I photograph this Friday. As a recap, I shared my budget and planning along with plumbing selections in Week 2. In Week 3, I broke down the vanity and where to place sconces for optimal lighting. Week 4 was all about selecting a bathroom tile you’ll love for years to come. This week, I’d like to break down the final touches to finish the bathroom.
Week 5, here we go!
When it comes to accessories, I like to think of them as jewelry. They are the accents to your home! The plumbing, vanity, tile and lights are the everyday essentials of a remodel. The pieces you can’t live without. Just like your favorite white tee, black dress or boyfriend jeans - I like these items to be pieces I know I’ll love for years to come. They have to function and be a bit of a workhorse and for me, usually aren’t risks, they are tried and true. But accessories, they can really express a style perspective.
Accessories are more than tchotchkes strategically place throughout a home to give it character. In my bathroom for example, the door hardware, mirror, hooks, shelves, artwork, towels and baskets are all accessories. All the things necessary to put the finishing touches on a room and also function, not just random decor.
