Star Spangled Shower

2010 September 2

The new apartment is still awash in random boxes yet to be unpacked, empty storage bins, tangles of various wires, unhung art, and piles of my shoes. We’ve come home empty-handed (and most importantly, couchless) from Jennifer Convertibles, West Elm, The Container Store, Urban Outfitters, IKEA, and vintage shops in the neighborhood. But we have one room very nearly complete (we would still like to hang a couple more pieces of art, but that’s what we are calling “Phase 2”): the bathroom!

It was tough to get full pictures because the bathroom is a small space, but here’s the shower from outside the door. We found a great curtain with spangles of blue sequins unfurling–I’m quite happy with it! We bought a navy handtowel, and gray and navy towels to match as well.

And here’s our sink area. The countertop is granite, which is super nice, and there’s plenty of storage underneath. We also have a small hanging cabinet on the other wall that matches, and shelves above the toilet. One of my favorite features of the bathroom is the window, which looks out on the kitchen. It’s quirky, but I like it, and a row of fabric stars that Joe has had for years hang perfectly up there.

I’m happy with this room, and it’s comforting that we’ve got at least one finished area in our island of uncertainty. But we’re making small progress every day, and I’m more and more excited about the potential of our new little abode!

    i have to say this looks like one of the cutest and cleanest NYC bathrooms i have seen. :) i LOVE the little high window (and the stars over it), although i never would have suspected that it looked out not onto the outdoors, but onto the kitchen–quirky indeed! good luck with the rest of the unpacking and organizing, i look forward to seeing the rest as it develops!
