farmhouse bath

happybathJune 20, 2013
I am redoing a small bathroom, I want to do it in the farmhouse style. I already have a white vanity and a over the toilet medicine cabinet, A neutral tile floor. Can I mix metal finishes? I saw a rubbed oil finish pivot mirror that I liked. Can I mix the chrome finish and the rubbed oil in the same room. If I did which fixtures would you do in the oil finish and the chrome? my shower door has the chrome finish on it. I am also going to do white beadboard and white walls.

I say go for it with mixing metal finishes. Have you made any progress in this bathroom to share?

Farmhouses are notorious for little, homely accents with character, like metal tins and "aging" accessories. I also find it very enjoyable to find decor items like those by going to local antique stores and garage sales. The farmhouse style is also wonderful in the fact that nothing has to be perfectly aligned or matching. Mix matching and finding objects with character instead of just style are the way to go.
