Today was the absolute best day of my life (I get my histrionics from Flufferella, not the other way around). First, I got to spend several hours away from the boys which always makes me so much happier to see them. I smooched their faces so good when I picked them up.
Peppers: Stop pooching on dat Salty. Pooch on dis Peppers. Dank you.
Second, I spent those hours listening to very, very loud pop music driving to and from Woodbridge and consulting with my builder and his design center assistant and advising on new options to add to their selections center.
The most difficult issue I have with these design consultations is continuing to act normal as they go on instead of getting all giddy on craftsman doors and varied-width, hand-scraped maple flooring which are like cocaine to me. I have to keep reminding myself to be professional and not make dumb jokes and goofy personal remarks. Real life is not my blog.
Since these things are on my mind, I thought I would show you my selections for the master bath. Here is my New Master Bath Plan:
Espresso shaker style cabinetry, grey granite countertop (since you know how I feel about quartz), carrara-look 12×24″ tile, and polished chrome fixtures.
And this slamming glass and carrara accent listello. The white one second from the top.
It may end up looking a lot like the masterbath in this home–though completely different because I’m totally original, and she copied me, and we are both copying the same designers anyway, and so forth.
This is the faucet, only in polished chrome (as are the towel bars, door handles and cabinet pulls).
And these are the front runners for lighting. A polished chrome chandelier with pear-shaped crystal drops and a vanity light with pleated frosted glass shades, halogen bulbs, and a obelisk shaped drop so as not to be too matchy-matchy with the chandelier.
My Original Master Bath Plan was quite different. I had chosen the lightest tile on this
board (bottom right) with the dark grey listello (top left).
I would have done it with espresso cabinets, santa cecilia light granite (which looks oh so different than new venetian gold)…
and an oil rubbed bronze shower enclosure like this:
Either option would be great, right? If you want to weigh in on which you prefer, that would likewise be great.
When I returned from my meeting, my house was wearing a little tutu of its eventual Boothbay Blue Hardie Plank. How utterly thrilling! Is it possible that I will live in that home someday? Is any of this real? Don’t pinch me. I’m getting another post-stress migraine.
