Jenny is the owner and designer behind Penny Jark Interiors. The home that she shares with her husband has a small bathroom that as the “before” photo shows, wasn’t exactly bursting with boldness. Then Jenny brought her style to the space.

From Jenny:

When working with clients I often come to an understanding of what aesthetic they prefer. However when it comes to my own dwelling I go back on forth on style, colors and the overall feeling I’d like in the space. This is a rental bathroom so I was limited on changes I could make. I wanted to make it cheerful with an eclectic,boho glam vibe. When my husband and I moved in a year ago it was painted what I call “blah beige”. It was a sad little bathroom with no life. I envisioned coral walls with gold glam touches.

I think we spent about $100 for the whole makeover including paint, shelf, light fixture (above mirror) hooks and gold spray paint. Spraying the hooks and T.P. holder gold really added a chicness to the whole bathroom.
It’s really turned out to be my favorite room 🙂
