it’s almost midnight and this monday is about to draw to a close. that is if i can pry myself away from the infinite and inspirational images on pinterest. how are you doing this february night? it’s pretty cold even here in miami beach so i hunkered down indoors enough of the day to paint my bathroom and prep it for a makeover. it’s about as basic as it gets with a glass door shower, built in vanity sink and mirror and 60s tile. scrolling through the pictures tonight made me really think about how this tiny space can convey so much from romantic to restful, masculine, welcoming, cozy, elegant, industrial, farmhouse, feminine, modern, natural or serene. just to start. above image via house of jade interiors blog
i started getting obsessed with these kinds of memes
bliss-athome.com these bloggers, photographers and designers are amazing in my book
pinterest.com/parisapartment/le-bath such simplicity and sophistication all at once
pinterest.com/pin/459296861976279559 i love the bathroom cause even the smallest corner can pack a punch
apartmenttherapy.com/the-worlds-most-beautiful-bathroom-sinks and the details can really be appreciated, maybe more than in any other room
apartmenttherapy.com/10-transformative-bathroom-upgrades-you-can-do-in-a-weekend some even consider it a venue to showcase artwork
retrouvius.com/design-projects/villa-highgate and others find that less is more
i love how they mixed the natural floor in with the modern hardware and rainshower
dream green diy-how-to-refresh-tile-grout-without-renovating if you’re anything like me you want a quick fix. this is a great way to use what you have and touch up the grout
flickr.com/photos i thought this designer had some pretty good points: use tray and beautiful hand towels, wallpapers and take a paper into the medicine cabinet
thecraftingchicks.com-drab-to-fab so much fun can be had in the minute finishing touches
decorpad i adore these crystal handles
just a smattering of ideas (click each for links)
personally i reside somewhere between these three. well the decor will have to wait, it’s drying and it’s bedtime. have a good night!
allo everyone! we made it through another week and now it’s smooth sailing straight into the weekend. it was a pretty productive week over here, having help from liz was just the boost i needed to propel me forward. thank god for friends, even if you have to pay them! truth is, liz is a clothing stylist and when she has big jobs i work with her and vice versa. anyway today we put together designs for 14 pieces for the a/d show, made a book detailing the different upholstery techniques, fabrics and piping. i was having a mental block getting organized but now am now serene instead of stressed.
i’m not sure how this post evolved, but all these pics are from pinterest once again (i’m sorry i didn’t label each one but you can find them on my boards at pinterest.com/parisapartment). there’s so much to play with, pair up and ponder that i let it free flow, kind of rolled the dice i guess, and of all things, came up with beautiful blue bathrooms.
of course in design, there’s truly something for everyone. pour moi, i love the old school stuff but get that the modern (especially in a bath), is pretty great too, especially if it’s got a touch of old and new.
i’m not sure if this ‘mod’ bath below is so much more advanced in style and design than, say, the one at the top but i give them an A for effort in originality. there’s a lot to be said for simplicity i guess and not having to clean the rock wall is an added bonus.
this one below kind of brings together old, new, rustic and mod.
ultimately, it’s kind of like goldilocks, you know which one fits you best. this one fits me just right! what about you?
well, c’est tout chere friends, i’m closing up early and am suddenly in the mood for a hot bath. have a great night!
