Aya's old guest bathroom was certainly functional, but it wasn't providing the calming effect she was looking for. Check out how she transformed it from 70s standard to sleek and serene.

From Aya:

This bathroom had not been touched since the 70s, so we thought we'd modernize it a bit. We replaced the old vanity with a double sink IKEA vanity with ample storage. The old faux travertine flooring was removed and new tile was installed. We chose the gray because we wanted a nice, serene color so our guests can feel comfortable while they're here. We chose the long glass kitchen cabinet doors from IKEA to give the small bathroom an airier feel. The artwork was created by myself using paint chips. I chose pinks, reds and oranges to give a pop of color in this otherwise neutral room.

Thanks, Aya!
