The SGN BaRm!

This mini-mural is in the bathroom off the Sea Gypsy's Nest. My wonderfully talented friend painted the sea horse for me, based on the cover of a book. Thanks so much, Lynn! As always, click to enlarge the pix ~

Of course I had to have her sign her work!!
The bathroom off the Sea Gypsy's Nest. It was originally a gah-dawful shade of rotten chocolate brown; it made the bathroom feel like it was about 3 foot square. Depressing, to say the least! And yes, it feels MUCH larger now !

Another view ~

I was inspired to add the sea glass and sand by the bathroom in my all time favorite restaurant ~ The BeachHouse Bistro in Morro Bay, CA. Thanks, Liz, for the inspiration~ miss you guys much!

Hometown sand! We're just down the street from the Bistro. Can't even imagine a chocolate brown bathroom - love your ocean theme.

Lynn did a wonderful job on the seahorse, I love it! I also like the way you lined the sink area with sea glass, very pretty.
