I simply can’t believe we are diving head first into March already. Not that I’m complaining or anything. The weather in these parts has been beautiful and signs of spring are everywhere. But, February went by in a blink and I’ve hardly had the time to blog so here’s a round up of what I’ve been up to: Day dreaming and plotting plans for our master bath remodel, working with an awesome new client on design of their living room and entry and a quick trip to New York City for my day job where I got to stay in an amazing hotel (pics below).
Master Bath Planning – Here are the finishes I’m playing around with for our master bath: weathered oak, marble, mixed metals (brass and chrome) and of course a dreamy free-standing tub. I’m on the fence about going with a marble tile floor in a hex pattern or a beautiful cement tile.
Speaking of beautiful bathrooms, I was fortunate enough to stay in a fabulous New York City hotel last week that among other things, is home to some of the most fabulous bathrooms — The Greenwich Hotel. I fell head over heels in love with it and I think I may be ruined for life. The furnishings were warm, worldly and luxurious. No two rooms are exactly alike and the bathrooms… filled with brass, marble and gorgeous tiles. Be still my heart.
And finally, I’m excited to be making some progress for a local client’s living room and entry. Here’s a progress shot below. Down came the dark wood paneling and up goes new dry wall. What’s amazing is, the husband is doing just about all the work himself on weekends and evenings…On the entire house! Impressive. Yes, this makes it a little slow going, but it will be worth the wait.
My clients wanted a warm, casual and inviting space. As you can see from the photo above, they’ve got great beamed ceilings and a dramatic rock fire place. This is their formal living room and they want it to be a place for the grown ups to relax by the fire, read and entertain. Here’s a look at their inspiration board.
I’ll share progress pictures one of these days, but for now, bring on spring!
