Hooked on a Beach Bathroom!

Thanks to Julia for hosting Hooked on Fridays!  Make sure to head over to Hooked on Houses to read more of what people are hooked on!

Thanks (and happy 2 year blogoversary) to Melissa at The Inspired Room, for hosting the A Beautiful Life series!

When I was thinking about what I was hooked on this week, this picture popped into my mind.  I took this picture on a vacation in Mexico in January 2008.  We took a catamaran tour to Isla Mujeres (the Island of Women – woo hoo) and spent some time on this beach.  As I ALWAYS do, I roamed with camera in hand to find inspiration.



I’ve always loved beach inspired bathrooms, in fact today I have a triptych of photos from another beach vacation (French River PEI – July 2004) on my bathroom wall (are you sensing a theme here ?????).

Problem is the bathroom is sunshine yellow – not really a beach colour – unless it’s on an umbrella like this :o)…



So, as I was browsing the fantastic world of design blogs the other day, I came across this bathroom tile that would be A-M-A-Z-I-N-G in my beach inspired bathroom (thanks to Design Shrine).

I checked out the website of Evit from Italy, and found that this tile also comes in various colours.  This one looks just like pebbles on a beach. (sorry I couldn’t get a bigger picture).

For the walls I though a light grey-beige colour like Benjamin Moores OC-19 Seapearl to represent the sand



And a dark countertop to represent the drift wood like this (again sorry for the size – hard to find a bigger picture)


Then I could accesorize with goodies like this …
