Furnished Friday...what a roll or two can do.

My bathroom is teeny tiny, so tiny that I cant even get a good angle of a before and after shot, but here is my attempt. 

This little apartment of mine has been quite an experiment. Using what I am learning in school, reading online, in trade publications, talking to friends in the industry to figure out how to best utilize my teeny space to make a beautiful home. 

As the rest of my apartment is finishing up, I realized what drove me most nuts was that my bathroom looked like a total rental. See below:

So I finally decided to do something about it. I have been obsessed with the Scalamandre Zebra print forever- I mean pinterest is full of bathrooms papered in the red, green, brown patterns and they all look amazing- the Kate Spade store as well as the Barney's Mens dressing rooms in NYC are covered with it as well. So without trying to be too original, I went ahead and purchased 2 rolls from Decorators Best. I forgot that the repeat is rather large meaning there would be a lot of waste, but the 2 rolls managed to cover exactly what I needed covered (I only ha about 4ft by 10ft of wall-space to cover). Here is what it looks like now. It makes me so happy, I think I could even live in my bathroom among those zebras.
