Mom and I did a little DIY roller shade for my bathroom window in one of my favorite fabrics, the signature print by Stone Textile. Unfortunately we forgot to take note of the orientation of the spring roller and the fabric is now backwards. Not a big deal, I just have to take it off and re-glue it. In the meanwhile, its been sitting like this for several weeks. Just keepin’ it real. Life, home, decor isn’t always perfect. But, I think I when get around to turning it around it will be pretty fabulous.
PS- I waterproofed the fabric, because this window sits in my shower. I’ll pull together a full post once I finish the shade!
Today I’m excited to share a bathroom renovation by my father and I that I LOVE. I’ve posted some peeks during the process, but now you guys get the real deal. This was a repeat client (our favorite!) as we previously designed and remodeled their kitchen. We love when clients come back to us with new projects because A) it means we did a good job the first time and B) I already have a sense of their style and personality so it makes the project so much easier.
My client is really fun. She gravitated towards a more modern aesthetic, but also wanted the space to be warm and comfortable. She wasn’t afraid to take a few risks which is always a thrill for me. Pushing your comfort zone always creates the best results. When I walked into the finished bathroom I was just floored. The guys transformed the space into something beautiful (and functional!) Most importantly, my clients love it. Score one for the home team.
An antique-mirrored linen cabinet provides plenty of storage, including two hampers.
This may be TMI, but I took my first bath last night. I wish I could claim it was life changing, but the tub was only 2/3 full and the water was lukewarm at best. (Gotta turn up that water heater!) Nonetheless, as I lay there sipping on wine, listening to a mix and staring at my fine fine tile job, I couldn’t help but feel a huge sense of accomplishment.
This bathroom used to be a crowded, dark, bleh space. And then my father and I teamed up and transformed it into this bright, warm, functional funky perfect oasis. I seriously love my 5×8 bathroom. Storage is good (more on that soon) the shower is fantastic and the details are really coming together. It’s not quite done yet, but here are just some bits that I have been enjoying day to day.
Still down in Mexico. It’s a little piece of heaven! (Look for a little recap when I’m back on Friday.) I must admit though, as I stand at the shoreline, watching the turquoise, blue, cobalt, ocean waves, I can’t help but think affectionately about my new medicine cabinet. Not obsessively. Trust, I have other thoughts. But I am excited to fill it up with my essential goodies when I move in next Tuesday(!)
Don’t mind the sconces. I’m working on recovering the shades.
Check out the inside! The double mirrored interior is such a nice touch.
I just love the arched top (the perfect little Moroccan flair) and weathered wood finish.
Get it HERE. It’s on sale too!
Guess what? In 24 hours I will be down in Mexico with my family and I am SO excited. It’s perfect timing because we are wrapping up our most recent bathroom renovation, #ProjectModernOrganic. It still needs its finishing details but I thought I’d share what has been a really fun design project for me.
The sink cabinet is a modern gray stain wood with an awesome concrete trough sinktop.
It’s seamless and beautiful. I love the concept of two faucets and one sink- really clean yet elegant.
The simple slab drawers will look more tailored and finished once we install the hardware.
Wall sconces set into the mirror will also finish this look.
Instead of a traditional linen cabinet, we built this tall narrow depth piece.
The top doors are antique mirrors. The unit also houses a hamper.
The floors may look like wood, but they are porcelain tile! So gorgeous in person.
The dedicated vanity/make up area is coming together nicely.
It’s hard to see, but that’s a wood counter wrapping down the sides of the desk.
Our area of Philadelphia is pretty traditional, so I always have a blast when my client’s are down for a modern look. I love how the clean lines blend nicely with more organic elements, like the “wood” floors and pebble shower. Once the accessories and textiles are in, it will really shine.
I’m off for now, but have planned a few posts for next week while I’m relaxing in the sun. You will DEFINITELY want to check back here on Monday. I have an exciting announcement.
