“It’s all in the details”. We hear that phrase a lot, especially when it comes to decorating. Last weekend I painted the inside of the half bath window, the mullions, black. It’s a small thing, but it makes such a difference! [The half bath is difficult for me to photograph but I'm practicing]
This window needed painting anyway. I’d painted the window trim a bright white but the mullions were still cream/off white. I always do that when I’m painting a room. I paint the window trim and leave the sash and mullions undone. I did it in the laundry room. See?
That wasn’t really on purpose. But I’ve since decided it’s fine and it’s staying that way. It’s not a good method in general because some windows have remained unpainted for years. Windows are my least favorite thing to paint. I can’t be bothered with taping off all the panes so I free hand it and then spend a bunch of time scraping paint off the glass.
In the half bath, I decided to go with black because it’s a detail in a small room making it a little more noticeable and the bathroom door has been painted black. I like the continuity.
The window over my kitchen sink is also sporting the same look. Do you like the look of dark window sashes and mullions?
Do you make decor changes around the house for winter? Other than switching out a few accessories on the mantel in the living room, I don’t. But I moved my new cowhide rug to the master bathroom. It seemed like an outrageous idea at first: cowhide in a bathroom?? But I did it because it is winter. And the bathroom floor is cooooold. And this was the only small-ish rug I had to try out in there.
I just wanted something to cover more surface area so I wouldn’t have to feel as much of that cold tile floor. It works and it’s cute.
This room is not finished. It’s been in limbo for a couple of years. [See some of the transformation here and here] There are several things to address like light fixtures and an unpainted wall behind the toilet. Now I’m kinda over the changes I made at first, like the textured walls, and may need to start over. We’ll see.
In the meantime, the rug is working out great.
