budget-friendly updates for the bath

September 12, 2019

Of all the rooms I work on for my e-clients, the bath is the one I surprisingly get a lot of questions about.  Many think they have to do a complete haul to update their bath if it’s too small or they don’t like the current tile and in many cases, renters want some options…

shower curtain trick

January 28, 2019

I finally got around to hanging some art in the upstairs guest room bathroom over the weekend (for those asking, it’s a nautical chart that my hubby used to navigate the Intracoastal years ago that I framed!)  I’ve always loved this bathroom but it never ceases to amaze me how even a single piece of…

clean + classic bathroom plans

August 5, 2016

I think we’re the only people on the planet who are crazy enough to embark on a pretty decent sized renovation while well into my third trimester but, hey, that’s how we roll.  I’ve mentioned before that we were in the process of finishing our upstairs and turning it into a full-on guest suite, complete…

attic inspiration: tamara kaye honey

February 12, 2015

We’ve been dragging our heels about finishing our upstairs bonus room for a while now, but after seeing LA-based interior designer Tamara Kaye Honey’s STUNNING attic-turned-master bath remodel in the latest issue of Lonny, I’ve got stars in my eyes and major motivation to get my butt in gear! Beautiful brass accents and warm wood…

benjamin moore whale gray + gray bathroom cabinetry

May 13, 2013

After posting this gray cabinetry shot in my portfolio last week, I got a TON of emails asking what paint color was used (it’s Benjamin Moore Whale Gray, one of my absolute favorites!)  Going darker gray was a pretty big step for my client, but once she saw how well it picked up the grey…

stylish storage in the bath

May 1, 2013

If there’s one place where most of us can agree more storage would be a Godsend, it’s in the bathroom.  Built-ins are my favorite option to really maximize even the smallest of spaces, but lately, I’ve been loving bookshelves, etageres, wide picture ledges and free-standing pieces of furniture as beautiful – and sometimes more affordable…

white subway tile + dark grout

August 22, 2012

I love my house.  A lot.  We built it from the ground up and I can honestly say there is very little I would change if I could do it all over again.  The one thing I would change is the grout in the shower of my master bathroom.  We have white subway tile with…

March 12, 2012

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Aside from throwing elbows to get through Ikea on Saturday, for me, this weekend was all about relaxing and regrouping after a long and crazy week.  I tried to limit myself to an hour of Pinterest and about fell over when I stumbled upon this guest bathroom…

my master bath plan

August 18, 2011

Last year, when we built our new home, I knew exactly what I wanted in every part of the house.  I like to think that working with me was a builder’s dream, because, even before ground was broken, I had already picked paint colors, tile, hardwoods, cabinet style, granite, even which way to run all…

bathing beauties

June 6, 2011

I’ve had bathrooms on the brain lately, three in particular, to be exact.  With the help of a wonderfully talented tile guy and some fabulous materials, I’m thrilled with how well these babies are coming together, so I thought I’d give a little sneak peak. White carerra marble subway tile was our first choice for…
