Guest House Remodel Bathroom Floor

Courtney’s Guest House Remodel Progress Report

Guest House Remodel Bedroom Entrance Before

When my daughter Courtney and her husband Drew purchased their home last year the property came with a guest house situated at the back of their yard. Eventually this will be an “adorable little guest house” but before the remodel it barely qualified as a potential guest house.

This spring marked the beginning of the remodeling process and as with many remodeling projects it has taken much…MUCH…longer than expected.

But it’s coming along and it’s going to be SO CUTE!!! Continue reading

Historic Home Remodel (2)

Today, I’m sharing portions of a lovely old 1920’s era home that was recently remodeled for resale.
One of the upstairs bathrooms featured a clawfoot tub and rainshower shower system. I wish I’d seen the home in it’s before stage. All the updates were utterly charming.
Especially the bathrooms.

Master Bath Valance & Cafe Curtain

Master Bathroom Makeover and New Window Treatment

Master Bath Valance & Cafe Curtain

I should probably call this an update rather than a makeover because technically the changes I’ve made to our master bath are purely cosmetic. But new paint, window treatment, rugs and a couple of towels made a big difference! So, it’s a makeover to me.

My number one concern, beginning this process, was working with the existing tile. The main tile consists of two shades of beige, one with a strong yellow undertone, laid in a harlequin pattern on the floor and used in the shower and tub surround while the bullnose has a slight pink undertone. Two undertones that tend to fight each other.  Continue reading

Master Bathroom Remodel – Before & After

Master Bath Vanity & Mirror BeforeSponsored by DecorPlanet

Bathroom styles have sure changed over the years. When you consider the attention to detail shown by 60’s era trim carpenters, this mirror/medicine cabinet combo is really quite decorative…but dated. It was time for a change.

The resulting change for this bathroom wasn’t just cosmetic. It was a top-to-bottom overhaul which included removing a wall, taking much of the room down to the studs, building a custom vanity, new floor, new shower and much more!

I came on board when the contractor asked for help with design choices like…paint color, tile, lighting, fixtures, etc. The added bonus was getting to see the process before, during and after.

Navy & Flax Floral Window Treatments (3)

I wavered back and forth on how to describe the color of this floral. The fabric itself is called Harris Navy, a linen blend fabric with a traditional Jacobean print, but I wouldn’t call it a true navy.

Prussian Blue? Blue-gray? Steel Blue? Navy-ish?

In Irene’s new home, the wall color is Sea Salt by Sherwin Williams and the glass accent tiles around the master bathtub are in varying shades of gray. When we found this fabric we knew it was the perfect choice for this master bathroom.

The Cutest of Lake House Sleeping Quarters

Lake House Bedrooms (8)

Do you ever dream about how you would decorate a second home if you ever had the chance? I do.

For instance, I often dream about how I would decorate a beach house if I ever had the chance. Or a mountain cabin. Or a lake house. Or a guest cottage.

This is one of those day dreams I hope to see fulfilled. One of these days.

In the meantime, I oooh and ahhh over the ones I see online.
And in this case…the one I got to sleep in.

Builder’s don’t think about curtains.

It’s my job to think about curtains and I’ve come to the conclusion that Builders don’t think about curtains. Ever. Are you surprised?

Have you ever lived in a home with arched windows in a bedroom? A bedroom facing East, South or West?
Have you ever had windows built so close to the fireplace that they must have been part the fireplace design?
Or maybe you have a kitchen window reminiscent of the one above?

Then I imagine you agree with me.

But I digress.

This post isn’t about Builders it about these adorable, simply elegant, curtains!
