Powder bathroom complete.

Our powder bathroom has come a long way! Not only did we enlarge the space (albeit only by about one foot), but we also enhanced the overall feeling of the space. What began as a small utilitarian beigh bathroom has now become a bright and elegant powder bathroom. Please reference this previous post: Powder bathroom. … Continue reading Powder bathroom complete.

The Bar.

Upon purchase, the “bar” was a bit lacking in character and perhaps even alcohol. It was a small area in the breakfast room, situated between the kitchen and the dining room, more akin to a small butlers pantry than an actual bar. We enjoy our evening cocktails and we love entertaining, so a proper bar… Continue reading The Bar.

Follow up on the Front Fireplace.

Tonight we will follow up upon my previous post: Front Room Fireplace. I wish we knew what the original fireplace looked like. We know the view below was never seen by the original home owners. Although this newer layout featured an attractive contemporary stone fireplace and handsome cabinetry, it lacked depth and character. This wall… Continue reading Follow up on the Front Fireplace.

Front Fireplace.

Tonight we will give you a quick look at the newly completed front fireplace! I will go into more detail tomorrow, as we are on our way out to dinner after a multiple kiddo birthday party day.

Master bathroom.

And now, my favorite bathroom tile; quintessentially Art Nouveau in design, profoundly deep saturation of color, intricately interwoven ribbons of life, elegantly delicate and yet substantially bold flowers that physically push beyond the top linear boundary.

Be Our Guest.

Our guest bathroom is a bit small, but what it lacks in size is more than made up by its joyfully vibrant tiles. Please reference these previous posts for further information on our wall tiles from Golem Tiles and our floor tiles from American Restoration Tile: Wall Tiles; Floor tiles. This current bathroom space was once two… Continue reading Be Our Guest.

Mudroom and mudroom bathroom.

So, as I said last post, our power is on!! This is huge, and I cannot actually wrap my mind around the fact that we are now on the other side of this massive leap. We had to re-do all of the wiring in the house due to the 100 year old knob and tube… Continue reading Mudroom and mudroom bathroom.
