when i start working with a client, i really like to get
and idea of what they like, so i usually hand over a
stack of design magazines (from my way-too ample stash), and
tell them to flip through them and tear out
anything that "speaks to them".
it could be a chair.
a paint color.
an entire room.
anything that they are
really drawn to.
i do the same thing--
every few months, i sit down
with my way-too ample stash
of design magazines and tear out anything that
"speaks to me"...
i honestly did not realize how drawn
i am to certain elements
until i started digging
through my files.
bead board and trim in a bathroom
were one of those frequently spotted elements...
sunny and classic.
i really love the look of painted bead board.
i'm such a sucker for bead board and oodles of trim.
and don't you love the built-ins behind the tub?
really fun and "beachy" feeling.
i thought the layout of this bath was really interesting.
look at all the windows!
great for natural light.
not so great for modesty.
i love the frosted glass door on the toilet closet.
love the horizontal bead board here...
love the dark apron in front of the tub with
the creamy walls.
i really liked the way the tile and
bead board tied in together...
small but stylish.
this makes me want to put a planter
in my shower.
this also makes me want a shower large enough
to put a planter in...
the saltillo tiles look great
with all the white. and i love that
the tops of the walls are a soft blue.
a classic look with the
cararra marble and touches of blue.
like the warm walls,
and the way the shower tile was installed.
