Black and White!

It's Show and Tell Friday!

I blogged about our guest bathroom previously and thought it would make a nice post for Cindy's at My Romantic Home Show and Tell Friday.

This is my inspiration piece - a picture we bought of downtown Montreal while on a trip there many years ago.  I love the pastel coloring with the black outlines.

I found this lovely lamp at Homegoods in a black and white toile...

And these pretty black and white bird plates also purchased at Homegoods...

And I added some new white bath towels and black hand towels.  And I displayed a beautiful white crocheted doily I purchased at a craft fair for the toilet top.

And I couldn't resist the black sign (Live Well, Love Much, Laugh Often) above the mirror.

I love the simple white shower curtain with the black ribbon trim.  You can see it reflected in the mirror.

I'm thinking of making a shade for the window in white muslin with black trim -- one of these days when we are home and not traveling.  And I need to get new rugs on the floor.

Please join our host Cindy at My Romantic Home (here) for more Show and Tell Friday!  

Thanks for coming on my tour of my guest room.   

You can find out about my wall color (here) in a previous posting.

  6. Sandy....your bathroom is quite pretty and very elegant. I love toile!!!

  7. I am so glad that you found my blog and was able to tell me what a wonderful time you had driving through Canada. I'm glad you have met friendly courteous people. Not all of us are, obviously, we aren't know for being friendly exactly. I used to live on the Alaska Highway, in Ft. St. John. You no doubt passed through that town. If you stopped at the McDonalds, you were possibly served by my nephew.
    Okay, to your post, your bathroom is really lovely. I love black and white, such a timeless combination, and I like how you had added just a small touch of turquoise. It looks beautiful.
    Thank you for stopping by my blog and be sure to stop by again. Enjoy the rest of your trip.
    Hugs, Cindy S
