One Room Challenge - Spring 2021 - Bathroom Remodel - Week 7

Last week before the Big Reveal!

Before showing you what happened over the past week, I want to thank Linda Weinstein and her fantastic team who make this challenge possible twice a year! It's full of creativity and inspiration with all the featured designers and guest attendees sharing their interior design ideas and visions, challenging and inspiring each other to go above and beyond during the course of this eight week period.

"First time on my blog? Welcome and thank you for stopping by! My name is Samia Verbist, I am a French interior designer based in Huntington Beach, California. I got my bachelor's degree in interior architecture in Paris, France, and started my own interior design business in California 5 years ago. I love to create interesting designs for my clients and come up with interiors that go beyond what they would have imagined. I love wallpaper, gold and my favorite color is turquoise! My favorite places are Palm Springs and French Polynesia!"

Most of the hard work was done last week (see week 6), so this one was dedicated to the installation of several items like vanity, lighting, medicine cabinet etc. All the furniture and accessories arrived on time which has been a real challenge in recent months! Delivery is taking longer than ever! But we got everything we need to complete this bathroom renovation!

I don't want to spoil the big reveal that's why I won't be showing you a lot this week! But here are some pictures of what was done during this week:
