We are underway with our upstairs reno and one thing we've already finished is the small guest bathroom.

This is what it looked like a few months ago. I still love the vintage sink that I got at a yard sale over 15 years ago but it was too low and rusted, so I had to get rid of it. Plus the trad shape really didn't work with the mix I have going on in the rest of the house. I wound up giving it to a friend of mine who's in the middle of a Victorian historic restoration so it will be right at home.

The other thing I had to get rid of was the glass-block window — way too '80s for me.

I went with a Duravit floating sink to open up some floor space and unlacquered brass fixtures from Kohler for a more vintage feel.

But the highlight for me is the new wallpaper, Ocelot from Farrow & Ball. That and the new sash window instantly transformed the room. I framed the window in 6"-wide lengths of marble for a polished look that tied in with the floor.

Only one thing left to decide and that is whether or not to paint the tub black. I'm on the fence... what do you think?
