Introduction: The Upstairs Bathroom
This is our upstairs bathroom. It is probably one of the only styled rooms in the house. I based the entire color scheme and decor off a Roger & Gallet soap box (as seen below...we use it to store scissors, tweezers, etc). The reason this little box is so important is that it is the brand of soap I bought him when I visited him during his semester abroad in Paris for Architecture school. Well, and it is pretty.
Another unique piece in the bathroom is a set of decorative wall plates that were my grandmothers. They are from the French Mediterranean coast and I inherited them when she passed away. You can't tell, but they are sort of 3D.
We also have what my husband calls as useless towels set up in a cheapy IKEA bookshelf. We have had this bookshelf forever. It once sat in my closet as a way to store sweaters in our old apartment in Chicago. It doesn't store much but I would love to replace it.
