Restaurants + NYC = Bathroom Decor

My husband and I went on a get-away weekend to NYC last week.
It is one of our all-time favorite cities!
We have framed Playbills from the musicals we have seen,
we have never hung them anywhere.
I came up with a strange spot
I think we're going to like it!
It's our master bathroom!
I can hear the laughter even now as I type
but to us it makes perfect sense.
We have long expanses of walls in there that have been neglected.
My theory is that some mornings
it's tough just getting out of bed,
much less going to work.
being surrounded with pictures of things we love,
& places we've traveled,
all made possible because we DO work,
seems like a perfect way to start our day
on a happier note.
In addition to the Playbills I'm going to make a black & white photo collage of signs
from some of our favorite restaurants in NYC,
along with some pics of subway signs, city sights, or whatever else made us smile.
Here's a sneak peak at some of the photos I may use.
I need to crop and edit but wanted to share with all of you now.
I'm impatient that way!

I will post photos of the bathroom when it's done.
We'll see how this experiment goes!
At least it's original (I think!).


  1. Sounds so FUN! I enjoy decorating with things that are meaningful ~ that remind me of places we've lived or people that mean a lot to us. And I really love making photo collages ~ some that I fit together (neatly)like a mosaic, and some that overlap and adorn with other paper or ribbon. Enjoy the project ~ looking forward to the photos of the finished product.

  2. It's been too long since I've been to New York. I drove through the city on my way to CT last summer...but it was in a minivan with 3 kids age 1, 3, and 7 at the I wasn't about to stop to say hello! What a great place to visit for a romantic weekend. Love the pictures, and I think that playbill idea sounds fantastic! Sounds like a great blog post to me : )

  3. What a great idea!
    It's been forever since I've been to New York. Your pictures make me want to go back!

  4. This is a very nice blog. Bathroom decor and bathroom designing is a subtle art which includes the correct mix of colors, shades, textures, lighting etc..
