The concentration of bringing this lovely house back to life this week are the bathrooms.
The upstairs bathroom has been completely gutted. We have chosen a marblelized tile for the floor and a wall tile that has nine different, subtle designs in neutral colors. Crossing the fine line between wanting a really modern bathroom, but one in keeping with the turn of the century character of the house, choosing the bathtub was a big decision…and the verdict was a pedestal bathtub.
the vanity should go well with the tile floor:
The biggest challenge is the bathroom we are building on the first floor in the space that was once a small porch. The previous owner boarded up the small porch and used the area for storage. Ugh.
This is what it looked like:
We got rid of the old windows, railings, etc. and enclosed the space.
This bathroom will be black and white, with the one brick wall. The black tile has a white border design. This sink will have long narrow block glass windows (8 inches times five feet)
and we are considering this shower:
Stay tuned to see two beautiful bathrooms –next week, we hope.
