When it comes to decorating, do you embrace your inner style guru or are
you daunted by deft designers? Either way, now just may be the perfect
time to hone your décor diva skills with the look of bathroom-bodacious
The bathroom, with its limited real estate is the perfect place to embrace
your inner artistic genius. Whether you love plaid, chevrons, stripes, or
if you are downright dotty, perfectly imperfect is the name of the game
here! There really are no rules, no one-size-fits-all. Paint outside the lines,
inside the lines, without lines at all, wherever your paintbrush takes you.
We’ve given you a few ideas, but by all means, feel free to personalize
them any way your inner décor divaness takes you.

horizontal stripes and painted with DR 106-0 Sprout. Once that was dry,
we taped vertical lines and painted with DR107-4 Jamaica Me Crazy. Once
that was done and dry, we taped out the dark squares and filled them with
Rapture DR108-3. Tip - remove tape when paint is wet if possible!
HOW DO YOU LIKE THEM ANGLES?
We used Chilled Out DR136-4 as the base colour and Contentment
DR 133-1 for the herringbone. Take a rectangular piece of cardboard and
cut each side of the top at 45 degree angles. This will be your guide. Take a
small brush and do one stroke on each side to create your authentic
