Today we want to show you something very special. We are not going to show an inside view of a beautiful house, we are not going to show a kitchen, nor are we going to look inside a beautiful bathroom. Today we want to inspire you with the result of the renovation of the smallest space in the house – Meg Biram’s super cute toilet!
Meg Biram is a contemporary artist based in the Washington DC metro area. With a constant series of art classes at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, creative projects and museum visits around the world, art has remained the main passion in her life. But when you see her beautiful toilet, you immediately know that she has a very good feeling for beautiful interiors.
Meg is lucky that her husband is very handy. He used to run a flooring business, and he just loves to build things around the house. He is therefore the right person to fulfill all of Meg’s interior wishes. He has completely renovated the patio garden, and has also realized the super nice walk-in closet. And not so long ago they also completely renovated their toilet.
Meg had a pretty good idea of exactly what she wanted, which she herself describes as a sexy hotel bathroom. She has opted for sleek seamless walls, painted with a dark green wall paint, Tarrytown Green from the Benjamin Moore brand – From the skirting boards all the way to the ceiling, including the sloping wall. The green walls give the toilet that sexy hotel vibe, the way Meg wanted it. The color also looks great with the new floor – Beautiful geometric vintage tiles with a chic marble look.
Vintage standing toilet bowl
Most people who are renovating their toilet today opt for a sleek built-in cistern, with a toilet that floats nicely above the floor. In keeping with the retro look, Meg has opted for an old-fashioned standing toilet bowl. Have you always wanted to buy such an old-fashioned toilet ? So you don’t have to be ashamed of it. Meg proves that it can be really beautiful.
The ‘fountain’ is placed on the wall opposite the toilet bowl. ‘Fountain’ by the way, because it is actually a full-fledged washbasin including furniture. Of course the furniture is completely in the same classic style, painted in high-gloss black, and finished with beautiful golden door handles and a black marble worktop. The black faucet also fits very cool.
Are you looking for fun ideas to make your toilet more fun? Pay particular attention to the small details that Meg has added in her toilet. To match the chic hotel vibe, she has opted for different golden accents. We’ve already talked about the golden door handles, but other examples include the large round mirror above the sink, the chic golden wall lamp above the mirror, and the hook for the washcloth. The toilet roll holder and the frames on the large wall are black again, just like the black tap. Also beautiful!
