Entries in bathroom (101)
Along with this post comes a little story. The other day I noticed some fabulous interior photography by Ottawa photographer and the king of lighting Justin Van Leeuwen. He mentioned the spaces were created by local interior designer and small renos firm Grassroots Design. While perusing this firm's impressive website, I noticed they are located a few blocks from my house. Then while snagging some photos for this post, I discovered that the first 5 photos of this post are the kitchen and bathroom of the house next door to me! (The brick seen through the window in photo #4 is the side of my house). CRAZY! Anyway, their kitchens and bathrooms are the bees knees. LOVE!
Yesterday was a big day - the official closing of the sale of our itty bitty house in Ottawa's Little Italy that I bought back in December 2007. I had alot of fun working on that house over the years but super excited to have a house that has SPACE and is more than 12' wide. Despite my former house only being about 800 sq ft, it took us 6 full days to move all our crap out, and yesterday after cleaning the old house and locking it up for the last time, I was finally able to start unpacking at our new house. I cannot wait to start thinking about how I am going to decorate - paint colours, new furniture, new lighting...FUN!!! I do not have much to show you at this point but I figured if I started snapping some pics it would keep me motivated (I am so freaking exhausted and sore). The only room that is totally unpacked is my dressing room. Because this house has ample bedrooms hubby and I each have our own dressing room. OH YEAH. Mine is at the back of the house facing west. I might put down a rug at some point and I need curtains ASAP, a bit of artwork and my pegboard/jewelry holder frame hung on the walls....
I have lugged around this plexi shelving unit to numerous places I have lived (it was used in a Club Monaco store I worked at during college) and it is now displaying some my favourite footwear (Rick Owens, Silent Damir Doma, Guidi and Maison Martin Margiela).
I adore my bathroom - the tiles and stained glass window excite me to no end. I need to replace the pedestal sink so I can have some sort of counter space/storage and find a way to get electricity in there (WTF?!) but I am just so stoked to finally be able to use my Urban Outfitters ruffled shower curtain that I bought a few years ago and have not been able to use. I think it is perfect in my new bathroom. I mean, polka dot ruffles AND marble hex tiles?! *SWOON*
The only thing stopping this bathroom from being perfect is that it's not real. Oh how cruel (and life like) computer rendering is these days. Can't wait to see the real thing when it is built. Design by Studio You Me and filed away for inspiration by me.
