Days of Walnut and Marble: Custom Bathroom Vanities

I still see Pumpkin Spice Latte used un-ironically and when I do, I wonder if the writer thinks twice about it? Shudders internally? Or, is it something healthy people with happiness in their hearts still look forward to every Fall? I think of that drink the same way I think of cable knit sweaters -… Continue reading Days of Walnut and Marble: Custom Bathroom Vanities

The Trouble with Bathroom Design: A Classic Bathroom in Marble and White Oak

Bathrooms are frequently the most expensive per square foot room in the home which is always surprising considering the kitchen's pricey reputation. Bathrooms have a lot going on in a smaller footprint. From a designer's standpoint, there's a lot of work that goes into the design. We create tile elevations for the installers, we call… Continue reading The Trouble with Bathroom Design: A Classic Bathroom in Marble and White Oak

Vintage Bathroom Inspiration: Green and Black Tile

This week I've got another round of vintage bathroom inspiration. What I like about this style is it's bold and easy. You don't have to hunt down a certain ceramicist for a particular tile glaze, you don't have to do a whole lot of soul searching to design this type of bathroom AND it will… Continue reading Vintage Bathroom Inspiration: Green and Black Tile

Vintage Bathroom Inspiration: Red and Pink Tile

I had the pleasure of touring a circa 1904 home here in Denver with original millwork and one original bathroom semi-intact. I love dilapidated beauty and I love original home details. The site visit was so invigorating I walked away with the key in my pocket and had to go back the next day and… Continue reading Vintage Bathroom Inspiration: Red and Pink Tile

Turning a Craigslist Dresser into a Sink

This end of summer heat we're experiencing has thrown me a little. Nelson, the lab mix, is shedding like it's July and every day I sweep up snowdrifts of fur from the places around the house where it likes to settle. I've been having fun decorating the new addition in our home but that's been… Continue reading Turning a Craigslist Dresser into a Sink

10 Classic Bathrooms for a Classic Cottage Look

We are building an addition and we're waiting (and waiting) for a string of sunny, warm and dry days for the foundation to be poured. As I'm writing this, Denver meteorologists are probably sweating in cramped television studios after little to no sleep because they've lost their minds about an upcoming winter storm. Clearly, foundation… Continue reading 10 Classic Bathrooms for a Classic Cottage Look

“Give me an old house full of memories and I will give you hundred novels!” ― Mehmet Murat Ildan This 1908 home is situated adjacent to City Park, Denver's largest park and one of the city's oldest urban spaces.

Craving More: Vintage Bathroom Style

I am working on an obsession with vintage style bathrooms.  I'm still craving more of things - more art, more color and more pattern.  I'm bored of the seeing the same things online for sale on the big retail sites.  I'm ready to get back in the antique and junk shops and mix it up.… Continue reading Craving More: Vintage Bathroom Style

Love Your Bathroom Again (Part 2: The Shower)

How's your February going?  It's been so snowy here in Denver!  Usually our snow melts when the sun comes back out the next day after a storm but we have snow in our yard that has been there since THANKSGIVING.  That's a first in the 16 years we've lived in the Denver area.  We have… Continue reading Love Your Bathroom Again (Part 2: The Shower)

Love Your Bathroom Again (Part 1: The Tub)

Confession:  Bathrooms used to be my least favorite room in the home to design.  This was problematic because I design a lot of bathrooms.  I never used to feel jazzed up about selecting finishes for bathrooms and I think I know why.  It's a room that is fairly predictable.  There's a toilet, sink, mirror, lights… Continue reading Love Your Bathroom Again (Part 1: The Tub)
