Beautiful Boston Bath

Friday, September 19, 2014

Just because a designer is given an architecturally void space and a tight budget doesn't mean that an amazing transformation can't happen! Stephanie Sabbe of Sabbe Interior Design, was given a bathroom in a Boston Loft with the direction that no walls could be moved, and the basic layout needed to stay the same. 


Before



After

The 'vanity' was a Craigslist dresser score that was outfitted with a porcelain vessel sink {I'm really into a square sink right now!} The faucets and sconces were mounted on top of the mirror {love} and the simple gold frame was mimicked as molding on the rest of the bathroom walls. 



BM Woodlawn Blue paint looks beautiful paired with the gold and the white. 



The floor is covered in a herringbone Carrara Marble and the shower in a simple white subway tile. So sleek.



And that's a Pottery Barn chandy {!} above the reclaimed gorgeous tub. 



What a beautiful bathroom!!

Bathroom art

Tuesday, September 09, 2014

Decorating for teens is hard. Sometimes an opportunity arises where we can subtly inspire our teens to do better through thoughtful artwork. Here are a few I have selected in case you are shopping for new bathroom artwork for your precious teens. 








You're welcome.

From this to that

I love repurposing furniture into something new and unexpected and using it in a different room of the home. Here is my antique empire sideboard that we got for a steal at least 15 years ago at an auction. I have it in the foyer and it houses keys, stamps, and warranties. 

  
{I added those enormous glass knobs}

And here is the same dresser used in an industrial loft as a bathroom vanity. I love the masculine vibe this old dresser gives this space. All of the old apothecary bottles and decanters look so great in here -- not to mention the backdrop of that 1/2 black wall and the cool leather strapped round mirror. 


The same piece of furniture used 2 different ways.

 I am getting ready to simplify my space and I'm planning on selling a ton of furniture, but now I am reconsidering holding on to this piece because I love it as a vanity AND it's really tall which makes this tall girl quite happy.

Classic bathroom redo: Before and After

Thursday, February 20, 2014

I love it when readers share their Before and After's with me!! A friend that I grew up with sent me some pictures of his bathroom as it appeared a few months ago.



Bless his heart. 
let's talk about this.... 2-toned wall tile in flesh and pinky brown. lots of it. ugh. very commercial white tile with ginormous grout lines. fairly contemporary vanity and mirror.
 A strange hodgepodge that equals a not so lovely combo.



He ripped pretty much everything out. He added wainscoting to the walls and painted them a crisp white. Classic subway tile was added to the shower and it continued all the way to the ceiling. 



Beautiful volcanic ash rectangluar tile was installed on the floor. I really love the fact that he went with this shape AND that he laid it lengthwise. It's a much more interesting shape than the generic 'square' and it helps to make the room appear bigger when laid in this direction. Because the room is relatively small, the addition of the frameless glass shower doors allows the room to also feel bigger verses a shower curtain, which, would hide a good 15 feet of space. 




The walls were painted with BM Patriotic White which has really soft blue/gray undertones. A pedestal sink, new mirror, toilet and a stainless light fixture complete this classic, lovely bathroom renovation.





Great job, Scott!
