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.

Inside Laurel Nest

Monday, September 08, 2014

After seeing the beautiful exterior of Laurel Nest, it definitely sets the scene that inside will be just as special. Entering Laurel Nest, you are welcomed into a vaulted ceiling foyer bathed in light. The staircases newel post is actually a rustic Goldilocks and the 3 Bears inspired carved walnut coat rack. 'Once upon a time they lived happily ever after' is stenciled up the risers of the stairs. 


In the Living room, architect Michael Faust designed this large fireplace to mimic a riverbed. Look closely and you will see driftwood woven throughout, including sculptural roots in the corners. I would have loved to watch this being installed! 






There is something so inviting when numerous finishes are used in a kitchen. All of the earthy textural components of this kitchen - the plastered walls, the reclaimed beams, the stacked stones, the slick farmhouse sink, and the limestone floors, combine so beautifully. And I love the unexpected accordion steel light pendants. 






The Master is Bill's favorite room. It truly reflects his Scottish heritage as well as the culture of the Highlands area. 






The see-through fireplace in the master, can also be enjoyed here, in the master bath. The sunken silver travertine covered soaking tub is at the base of the fireplace - so wonderfully inviting. It also features heated floors and a wine fridge 



More beautiful stonework is featured in the shower as well as a river rock floor which is simply open, no shower door needed! It feels just like a rustic spa.



When designing the guest room, Bill kept his mom, as well as Little Red Riding Hoods grandmother in mind. It's loaded with English antiques, floral wallpaper and tons of embellishments. 



Layers of vintage rugs, needlepoint pillows, stacks of oil paintings, handmade tiles inset into the fireplace, and multiple ornate mirrors -- It's all soooooo good!



And what may be my favorite room, this guest room features lots of whimsy - from the old advertising signs to the suspended bicycle. I also love the sketches of their dogs and that great duvet. 



The mix of luxury and comfort, the incredible attention to detail -- all tucked into the woods. It really does feel like a fairy tale!






Deals and steals

Tuesday, August 05, 2014

Checking out all of your FB and Instagram posts, it's hard to believe so many of the kids are back in school already! We are shopping for new room accessories for Maris as she is moving back to college this weekend. She will be living in the sorority house this year and, apparently, this room will be even smaller than last years dorm room. This rug may end up being wall-to-wall carpet. sigh...


{FYI--while shopping, this is how you decide if a rug will work in a college room}


While shopping for her new pretties, I have come across some great sales that I wanted to share with you. First up, Golly Bard's is offering 25% off everything in her etsy shop today. She has long been a favorite of mine and creates beautiful watercolor nature paintings. 
 


Serena and Lily are having a private sale today before it hits the website tomorrow. There are some awesome discounts -- wallpapers are 50% off, paint is 65% off, as well as some great furniture and bedding sales. I have been watching and considering these kids chairs for a project for a while. Now on sale!

 


Lindsay Letters has extended her 'Christmas in July' sale and has some fun holiday prints and cute t-shirts at great prices. 





And while on the computer finding these great deals, I have had a bit of a peeping Tom {cat}.....


I title this one "Kitty Purry does curtains'

And now that this view has been discovered, the curtain rod has a new best friend. They hang out together.
 a lot. 

Have you discovered any great sales? Let me know!!
