Hey ya’ll and welcome back,
I have hit the home road at a running pace, not only with work but with grandkids catching up on Nana time from the month I was at Kelli’s in New York. So an apology is due for no post last week. I had a SUPER SURPRISE while in NY in the form of a gift to me from my G-daughter. It was a framed picture showing three different poses of her sitting in a chair holding a picture frame. The first was her saying “hushhhhh” holding a picture frame that said “I have a secret”. The second pose was of her looking down at the frame that said “I’m gonna be a Big Sister” and the third frame was her with a wide-eyed, mouth-open surprised look on her face with the frame saying “November 2013”. WOW, my Kelli is pregnant! Ya know what that means….
So this week is a continuation of the home from my last post with the built-in Emperor’s Silk bookcase. This is her new master bathroom. I love the ship-lap walls above the bead board. Not to mention the beautiful beveled oak hardwood floors. My client found her inspiration for the bathroom counters from Pottery Barn and Old White was the color. Again, she is pulling in one of her favorite colors…red.
As you can see there are His/Her vanities with granite counter tops and lovely mirrors. Notice her art work between the windows, you’ll love the crab picture in another photo. She brings in such wonderful country, southern and cajun designs and it all works so well in her home. Love those floors too.
I didn’t show the custom shower except in the reflection of this fabulous mirror. It has a rain shower along with the personal shower. They have a seat ledge the full length of the shower. Talk about indulgence!
I love french, Natchitoches influence of the fleur de lis on her drawer pulls.
The claw-foot tub is waiting for someone to say “Calgon take me away!” Okay…does that phrase from an old commercial tell how old I am? That’s okay…cuz if you remember it you’re right up there with me. 🙂 The shelf has crystal door knobs for holding the towels and burlap flowers.
See the window in this view? I featured last week the reclaimed doors that led into this bathroom and on the wall to the left is a small window that overlooks this tub. I love this window that overlooks the tub…in the master suite…just saying. 🙂
If you look at the ceiling you will see the tongue-and-groove wood with ship-lap walls above the bead boarding. Not to mention that colorful, partyin’ cajun, happy crab.
Ya got to love these door plates with crystal knobs.
Now get ready for this door lovers. There is an old repurposed five-paneled door behind the toilet! She tells her G-Kids that ” it is the door that leads to nowhere”. Ha! Who woulda thunk to do this!
I had so much FUN on this project…of course I say that about every one that I do. I love to see the personalities of each of my clients and how it comes to life in their homes. I hope ya’ll have enjoyed this as much as I did in working on it.
I want to give a shout-out to the great people I worked with. Please find their FB page and give ’em a “like”.
