Reader’s home – Nicole’s renovations have begun

Posted on Thu, 20 Mar 2014 by KiM

In December 2010, Nicole Lamac found her “forever home” in Victoria, BC. She’s been documenting the process over on her blog The House Diaires, and recently featured her laundry/mudroom and main floor bathroom renovations. They are FAB-U-LOUS!!!! Let me show you….

The bathroom was a peach nightmare, and had a terrible layout. They started from scratch with the plumbing so were able to redesign the space.


Herringbone carrera and white subway tiles…how could you go wrong with that?!?!

That was pretty freaking fabulous. Now check out Nicole’s laundry/mudroom. It started out as a 12′ x 10′ bedroom on the main floor.

And turned into this…

A window was switched out for a door. The floor is covered in 20″x20″ semi-polished porcelain with a look similar to polished concrete, and it’s heated. In the freaking mudroom. BOOM.

How about this cute little corner for jacket/shoe/mitten storage? Love it.

I can’t wait to see what she does with the rest of her house!

Helen says:

Love all of it. Gonna go check out her blog!

Ruth says:

BOOM, is right! wow. I have got to take action on my own place…this project is awesome.

Sofia says:

Wonderful! Any idea where she got that painting of the woman with the bird tattoos? I. LOVE. IT.

@Sofia, I'm pretty sure it's Emily Martin's work. She has an Etsy shop where you can buy her work and her website is here:

Sofia says:

@Britta Thanks! I've ordered the print 🙂

Could you let me know where the sink came from. I love it and it is the perfect size for our small guest bath.

Nicole says:

@Nicole This is Nicole (the homeowner 🙂 The undermount sink is by Kohler and the model name is the "Ladena". The vanity was custom-made here in Victoria. Cheers…

Janessa says:

Where did you get the shower curtain! I love it! Beautiful Renovations! <3

Cait says:

Can you please tell me where you purchased the vanity light?

Alexa says:

What brand and color paint is the vanity?
