I, of course, did not see this as a problem but rather a design opportunity. I'm going utilize my first "opportunity" to change out our mini-loo's to big American toilets! However, there are a few elements we have to work with for the time being. One being the cream vanity, bath, and bath tile.
I immediately had a "great idea". Here is a picture of the before and after of my first bathroom project. I wanted to get white in there but still tie in the cream so I decided on wide painted stripes. Due to my lack of funds after having the rest of the house painted I took this job on myself and I'm pretty proud of it! I give mucho credit to the frog tape that kept my lines clean. The room is about 75% complete. I still need to hang the roman shade, shelves, towel bar, and accessorize. We also need to switch out the toilet...but don't fear I have already picked out my "dream toilet".

|I used to have dream handbags and shoes...now it's dream toilets... can't wait for Cimarron to arrive!|
So, after this great accomplishment I have decided my next challenge will be wallpapering (after I tear down the current wallpaper) in the first floor powder room! And my inspiration...none other than Miss Blair Waldorf herself.
While her buttoned up clothes and structured trenches inspired me in my fashionista (pre-homeowner) days, I'm now using my extensive knowledge of all things Gossip Girl in my decor. And who didn't love that office!?! More specifically the fabulous green toile walls and guess who found the source? This girl! Hoping it turns out as positively fabulous as Miss B herself!
