No Lynne, In looking for the rug online I found it at another site and it is a lot more turquoise than green and that is not the color we want in there.

Oh, rats! It came across as such a nice green in that picture!

May I ask where else you saw it? I'm always looking for South Western decor...

Yes, everyone is helping with the project and no the whole house is not like that.... YET. I have hopes though. Dan is enjoying this project so much that he wants to continue the theme into the bedroom. Great for me cuz I love the fall colors and have wanted that in our room for a long time.

Lynne, I will send you the site.

We finally picked rugs. Decided to go with a very simple dark green. Also added in deep brown towels. I love both of the colors in there.

Here is the look along with 2 new plants I picked up today at WM. A Marginata Dracaena and a Croton.

And the other two plants I picked up. A China Doll and Snake plant.

Thanks. Yet another weekend went by with no work on the bathroom. Eventually we will get the fence painted and once I get those last few plants in pots, it should be getting pretty close to done. I am going to put a string of battery operated Christmas lights interwoven in the lattice for a light source other than candles as well. I bet it will look great with all the reflections in there.

Thanks Penny, I love all the plants in there. The funny thing is that I am usually so grumpy in the mornings before a shower, but I go in there now and instantly relax cuz it is so pretty in the bathroom.

Updating.

We spent several weeks not working on the bathroom. But we finally got the fence painted and I fixed up the counter how I like it now.

Here is the entire counter.

The left side with a rubber tree, African violet, and ivy.

And the right side with a China Doll and Mother in Laws Tongue.

This are is loaded with gifts from my friends here at the Forum. The beautiful box and wind chime from Diane, the ivy from Angie, the Wild Willy in the planter from Cindy plus the one hanging from her store, the AV from Sarah and the white flower keeper from Loz. I also bought the fountain from Loz through Avon.

Pretty cool huh!

Very cool, Triss!

I really like what you've done with it all.
Do the kids use this bathroom also, or do they have their own? Little hands can get in trouble with all that wonderful stuff in there!

Does the skylight open in there, or does is stay pretty humid?

Oh and the kids do on occasion use the bathroom for a bubble bath. They like the big tub. They are pretty good about hand off the breakables though.

Not done. Dan has this idea to make two very large planters. Kinda like walls. One to go between the sink and tub, one on wheels to go in front of the tub. Both about a foot taller than the counter and with space to be able to put more plants.

I also still have to do the top of the linen closets and some kind of hanging plant behind the toilet. Dan would also like a vine on the back of the toilet to be able to twine throught he fence.

At the rate we are going, we will need a new project for winter. This one went way faster than I thought it would.

It has been a while since I have done an update. For my birthday I received a bunch of new plants from my hubby. Finally getting them put where they are supposed to be instead of just sitting in the room. Also potted up a few things that have been waiting.

This is the Black Pagoda Lipstick plant. I lost a lot of leaves in the transplant but believe it or not it looks better than it did in a WAY too small pot.

And the overall look of the mirror side of the room. We added a little fancy ribbon over the top of the mirror that has a vinelike pattern and the lipstick plant is hanging to the left.

And a look over the tub with the lipstick plant to the right.
