My client likes to sit at her vanity to put her “beauty” on and oh my goodness does she look gorgeous in here! Champagne bronze fixtures sparkle in the reflection of the layered, frameless, beveled mirrors. And honestly, anyone looks good in the rose gold antique mirror above the towel bar! She can relax in complete privacy provided by the incredibly modern, frosted shower glass. And she never has to worry about slipping on her new herringbone wood tiled floor. Feminine down to the last detail. Even the depression glass knobs and pulls are pink! What a beauty. (scroll down to see before photos)
I love it when a plan comes together! Here are some pretty incredible before and afters from my last remodel project. They had travertine tastes but a porcelain budget. After some serious scouring, we were able to find the perfect stone look-a-like tiles that gave this traditional master bathroom a modern, clean look.

Remodeling this bathroom was a pleasure but staring at the finished product is seriously waaay better.
Today is the day that the art teacher sends an entire year’s worth of art home! Not gonna lie, it’s my favorite day of the school year! In order to make room for all the gorgeous new treasures, I have to take down and put away the old ones. Here’s a photo of the incredible gallery I’ve been enjoying this year.
I’m going to miss it. Priceless works of art, if you ask me. It doesn’t have to be fancy or perfect to receive a place of honor in this casual kitchen. It just has to be theirs.
When your client is your neighbor and good friend, work isn’t really work. It’s a gorgeous spring here in Houston. Oh how I’ve loved making the short walk to check on the master bath progress down the street everyday. Last night it was in sweats and flip flops. We sat at the kitchen table with a glass of wine and considered Emtek glass door knobs while we caught up with our girl talk. As my shoes slapped the sidewalk on the way home, I smiled the most contented smile. This is so my kind of job.

Happy blog birthday to me!
