Hammer It Out

In Bathroom, Spaces on March 28, 2013 at 10:55 AM

Powder rooms are neat to me from a design stand.  I mean they are small and can stay relatively neat, as there isn’t much going on in there.  So I was pretty excited about decorating our new addition.  I ran across a hammered chrome vessel sink and it became the inspiration for my little powder room.

I’m utterly in love with this piece and though the room is tiny, it will be a showcase and I hope everyone gives a little smile when they walk in at its unexpectedness.  Yes, I know that’s a lot to expect from a sink but hey, a girl can dream.  To keep my little sink company, I have gone completely rogue and chosen a fabulous red python tile by Tau Ceramica called Serp.

The thing aobut this that sent me over the edge is the accent color is silver on this little baby.  Some may say it’s garish and I might too, once it’s done but I do know that secretly I WILL LOVE IT!! Can’t wait.

This hammered look is really speaking to me. And while I am accustomed to seeing it done in copper a great deal, chrome is really The Business!!

Do You See What I See?

In Bathroom, Design Options, real estate, Spaces on April 18, 2012 at 2:22 PM

By now I am quite certain everyone reading this firmly believes that I am all over the map without a clue as to what direction I am headed with this renovation.

THAT my friends could not be further from the truth.  I do know where I am going, but I choose to make as leisurely a stroll as possible.  Once I arrive I really want to be able to luxuriate there for a long while in blissful happiness.

I have spent this whole day in my daydreaming ( sort of ) mode and not doing anything that relates to architecture, structural design, building codes or money. This is just whimsical fun, but there really is a method to my madness.

I have a love for shiny things.  A little blinging just makes it better.  But bling is a fine line for the hubs, who I am sure could live the remainder of his life without a single sequin, rhinestone or bauble and be just fine.

Mirrors fall under the category of shiny for me and though yes the above image is a bit more than even I could fathom, the idea of a mirrored furniture piece intrigues me greatly.

The above bathroom inspires a lot of thoughts in me.  This pale shade of blue keeps cropping up in my hoard of images.   I guess I just need to decide what space I really want to use it.  In my mind shades of grey are prominent ( for varying reasons, yes I read the ENTIRE trilogy…)  I do love how grey works with this shade of blue….hmmmm

We may have arrived a meeting of the minds in that rather than using actual mirrored pieces, we are opting for a glass tile that has a glimmer and shimmer to them so maybe that will be enough to suffice.

The tray ceiling is neat as well. I can only guess what that would do to my budget… it actually makes me laugh!
