There may be light at the end of my bathroom renovation tunnel. The funds are gathered and a builder might just have been found. No firm plans drawn up but we have a builder! Is that putting the horse before the cart? And I have more inspiration pictures. Maybe that’s why no firm plans.
All with a tradition vibe. Then I get the urge to break out with something more modern, with colour, with tile.
The wish list is still growing. Heated towel rails, a free standing tub probably a claw foot (wasn’t this supposed to be a shower room originally?), Kelvin wants waterfall taps and I want a wall of storage. No wonder the plans keep changing 😉
Do you find you collect more and more inspiration photos the more you are delayed in your renovation plans? I certainly do! As most of you will know I live in an 1860’s brick colonial but most of you will not know that our only bathroom is way down the back of the house in the old stables. Oh the foibles of an old house, old plumbing and old renovations completed half way through the 20th century when expediency and low cost were the words of choice for bathroom renovations. What I would really really love for our new upstairs bathroom is something just like these amazing bathrooms by Australian interior designer Justine Hugh-Jones.
My new bathroom plans are gathering momentum. I find myself still gathering images in my inspiration file. Can’t stop. Bath or shower or both? Double sinks for the morning rush? Tiled to the ceiling or a softer look with lots of the old walls on show? Heated flooring or lovely old boards?
I just wanted to quickly thank Sandra, the 3 Jessica’s, Barbara, Erin, and Morag for the donations sent yesterday for Agnes’ vet bills. Much appreciated. And as much as I hate to ask again, if anyone is able to spare a few bucks to help get little Agnes up to snuff so she can live the rest of her life healthy and in a loving home, details are in yesterday’s post. I swear I won’t ask again – my last desperate plea.
I love anything copper, so this bathroom with exposed copper piping is going into my inspiration folder. LOVE IT!!! Via Karhard Architektur.
Renovations at my new old house having ground to a shuddering halt for more than a year are once more on the horizon. We desperately need an upstairs bathroom. It is a long trudge to our one and only bathroom waaaay down the back of the house at two in the morning. I need, I want a new bathroom close at hand. Now is the time to start gathering inspiration and doodling plans and looking for fixtures and fittings and finishes. My house was built in the 1860s so I’m leaning towards a more traditional look but with a touch of boho or maybe a dash of modern minimalism or… well I’ll know what I want when I see it. I would love a tub for soaking and an open shower. A wet room? A modern basin on an old table? What colour? All gleaming white? A hint of dark drama? Warm wood? Here are a few images I have tucked away in my inspiration files.
and totally impractical, would never work in my house but I want those basins and the shelf above
