overdue updated pics

February 2, 2010

Earlier this month, I took some pictures of the house in preparation for a presentation I was doing at work.  I meant to post it on here, but it slipped through the cracks.  Better late than never.  What do you think of our “peacock feather” wall?

inspiration – powder room

September 28, 2009

I am not usually a fan of overly-ornate decoration, but something about Marsh & Clark‘s powder room intrigues me.  We have a powder room with similar size and proportion planned for the main floor.  It is missing the end window however, and I think that is the jewel of the this whole room.

things we can’t afford – washbasin

September 8, 2009

I am starting a new category called “things we can’t afford”, it’s self-explanatory. The first entry into this is the washbasin waschtisct 5.1 by roller GmbH. The cost for this is €593.00 (sink included) + 69.00 for shipping, so it’s not too outrageous. It is something I would love to have in our home…someday, but not today.


inspirational bathroom

This image is the inspiration for our bathroom. The bathtub is especially beautiful and simple. Strangely, simple usually means more money. I am finding that finding a cheap tile with that colour is proving to be difficult.

Bathroom Sink

Our limiting budget means that we will be basically shopping out of the Ikea Catalog. Fortunately, they have things that are easy on the eyes and wallet. For the upstairs bathroom, we are going to with the LILLÅNGEN Sink cabinet with 2 doors option. The stark white finish with the aluminum framed glass doors should contrast nicely with the floor tiles we picked for the room The downstairs powder room will have a similar setup but with only one door.


Bathroom Floor Tiles

September 2, 2009

There are a lot of details that will need to be decided for our home renovation. One of the first things that we decided on is the bathroom floor tiles. Because it is a smaller area, we were able to blow our budget slightly to indulge in a really interesting material. It is called WoodStone by Porcelain gres. The colour we are using is called “african wenge”. We wanted to go for a woodsy rustic floor in the bathroom, but of course, wood is out of the question, so this is almost a better alternative. I think this will look great with the white bathroom fixtures. The image below gives a good taste on what the material is like.
