The “before” shot of this bathroom looks like the kind of room I’ve seen a million times. A plain old bathroom, nothing unusual, perhaps a little dated, and definitely boring. Oh, but this bathroom is anything but boring now…

See, what did I tell you? The “after” is anything but boring! When I saw the changes that Percy has been making to his home over on Design*Sponge I had a moment of design envy. How can one dude be so unbelievably creative? I mean, just look at the painted wall in that bathroom — so brilliant! I especially love the painted on (or is it chalk?) soap dish and toothbrushes. So cute!

After initially reading about Percy on Design*Sponge, I linked over to his own site and blog, Jersey Ice Cream Company. In addition to the gorgeous rehab of his home, Percy also resells vintage furniture. Browsing through the pieces, which are all beautifully photographed against the backdrop of his house, it’s obvious that Percy has a great eye for quality pieces. I’m totally bookmarking his site so I can continue to check the progress of his home and business.
