This is the mainfloor half bath, as it looked when we bought the house (although the previous owners did take their fuzzy toilet cover and mats.  Aww, shucks).  The ceramic tile continues into the hallway and the front entrance.  It isn't as bland as it looks.  Somehow the ugly from the walls was reflected downward.

If you were giving this room a makeover, where would you start?  I will post some "after" shots soon.
