Hey, Everyone! Hope all is well and that you’re still out there! It’s been, basically, impossible to post, work, or do much of anything from home for the last month considering we have no office, living room or dining room. Dust, noise and fumes from the floor staining (holy sh*t was that BAD!) have driven me out of the house most of the time so, I apologize, my friends, but I’ve had good reason for being MIA.
Fortunately, all the dust and fumes have lead to some actual progress. Praise Jesus!!!
Here’s where we are today:
The master bath – The shower was just grouted the other day and I’m really happy with the way it’s turning out…and it feels HUGE!!! The centerpiece is a fun mosaic done in carrara and bardiglio marble, the bench seat is carrara marble and the floor is a fluid marble mosaic.
The flooring for the rest of the bathroom and water closet are going in now, herringbone style!! We went with honed fluid marble in 6″x18″ planks. I think the linear veining really accentuates the herringbone pattern.
The custom gray vanity will go in early next week and then I’ll need to figure out sconces. The ones I originally planned to go with (here) won’t work after all. Back to the drawing board.
On another note – I was fabric shopping for roman shades the other day and came across this lovely little sofa!
It was a floor model (and on clearance!!) so I grabbed it for our sun room. I’ve told the kids that they’re not allowed within 15 feet of it. EVER. Let’s see if that works…
I wish I could show you the kitchen but, honestly, we’ve had nothing but problems with the cabinetry (much of it needs to be replaced) and if I start to think about it I’ll dissolve into a sobbing mess ….so I’ll save that story for another day…
One bright spot though is the fab flush mount I picked up for over the kitchen table. We were originally planning to hang a pendant but realized it would interfere with TV watching if you’re in the kitchen (God forbid!) so I went with this Alexa Hampton fixture that I’ve loved forever (click on image for link).
Thanks for stopping by today and sorry again for the radio silence. Life will get back to normal one of these days, right?
