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 →
Did you see these cuties and wonder just what the rest of the room looked like?
I’m not always fortunate enough to photograph an entire room after a project is finished. But in this case Jenni graciously invited me back into her home so I could take pictures of her daughter’s beautiful bedroom! Just for you!
Several years ago a friend gave us an adorable pink, multi-patchworked poof which had long ago lost it’s luster. I had grand schemes in mind for re-covering it with awe inspiring sewing skills, the cutest of fabrics and trims like you’ve never seen before.

The fact that this so-called “guest bedroom” looks more like a girl’s bedroom is, believe me, strikingly evident every time I walk in this room.

Several of the fabric options I considered for this window included some old pink silk curtains, a gray check duvet cover that I toyed with making into curtains and several sheer options. The fabric I used was purchased at iKea a few years ago for $.99/yd as possible wedding decor but became curtains instead!
Silk was my fabric of choice when I first began looking at options for this dining room window treatment. The issue was going to be finding the right icy blue-gray to complement the different shades of both colors found in this room.
Fortunately, I found the perfect fabric. A smooth, icy blue, silk called Patiala that provides just the right balance between blue and gray.
