One last thing, we did splurge a little and put in a radiant floor. Thanks Steve for convincing us! He put it in his own bathroom at home. For $750 installed, it's probably going to be priceless in the Winter.
Shower copper pan going in. Our house is old so
we have the slat and horsehair plaster as you can see
The window wall all stripped down and new
I like to take lots of photo's before the walls
get closed in so we know where all of the
plumbing etc really is
New recessed down lights going in
4" size is in now and looks great
Reversing this door and trim really made a
huge difference to the feel of the room by
opening it up
Closet framing going in. Note old wall color
on walls in bedroom
Drywall and plaster making all the difference
Board going in to shower, niche built and
everything roughed in ready for tiler
Ta-da! We still have wall patching and a few
punch list items, so I have left the plastic on
the light for now. Can't wait to get in here!
There are also mirrors etc still to come.
The 12x24 porcelain on the floors and walls
really makes the space feel bigger than what
it is. A great tip. So glad that I went the porcelain
route instead of marble this time. The warm grey
color is also perfect for warming things up.
Ta-da again! The lighter walls look so great if i say so myself and they
make all of our old furniture look a lot better!
We have West Elm pillows (yes, I am an addict) and the
bedside lamp shades are on old cheap bases (to be changed someday)
but the shades are from Target when they had the Liberty of London
for sale. What a find, I still *love* them
Now for the finishing touches:
I love these stripe trays from West Elm-Greys and Whites for the vanity
Crate and Barrel Glass jars for these things
This will be our temporary curtain from
West Elm A little more fun than white and
may be a year before we bite the bullet and do
the glass enclosure
West Elm mirror at vanity. This will relate
nicely to the glam pendant light. I love mixing
the contemporary sleek lines with a few glamorous
items to take the sterility away
when you're using a lot of hard lines
Similar frameless floating
mirror on wall between windows
Wooden bath mat at shower, love this!
It's from Target.
We'll be doing plantation shutters on the windows
Again these are simple, but not overly contemporary
And finally, the debate of the century! I have finally settled
on doing this Knoll Studio Bertoia ottoman and just need
to find a suitable fabric that can withstand the moisture.
This is where I could add a little punch of color if I'm
feeling brave! I'm thinking something in the blue family...
