Where to Find Patterned Tile + Bathroom Progress

I now fully understand the hashtag #Ihaveathingwithfloors. I am head over heels for our bathroom floor. I will love it for ever and ever and ever (or at least until it becomes dated, which is hopefully NEVER!).  Our bathroom tile has received a lot of attention since I first posted it on Instagram and shared the bathroom design plan.  Like our office painting, it’s safe to say it’s a fan favorite. Since I’m generous, I’m giving up all the details. But first a close up. Ignore the dirt, it still needs a good scrub down. This stunning tile is Cement Tile Shop’s Bordeaux pattern in Pacific Black. I came across it  after seeing patterned floors over and over again in my Pinterest and Instagram… Read More

Why I Changed My Mind About Vinyl Flooring

I gave you sneak peaks at the basement progress last week, specifically the floors, but I didn’t provide much information on our selections. I received some questions about the materials, so I am going to share all the details about why we picked each finish. Today I’m talking about our herringbone, faux wood floors.

Freestyle Friday + Basement Progress

I don’t know about you, but I am ready for the weekend! We are attending a Princess Party tomorrow and get to meet all the Disney princess in person. E can’t wait to wear her new Tinker Bell outfit from Target. Throughout the week, I’ve shown a few glimpses at our basement progress on social media. See here. This week was floor and tile week. We had a few “problem solving opportunities,” but everything turned out great in the end. I’m beyond happy with the results. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so here our some progress pictures. Here it is at night, all complete. I’m loving the herringbone. I’m kind of disappointed they will be covering it… Read More

A High Contrast Black and White Bathroom Design

Whats black and white and gold all over? …Our future guest bathroom! I’ve already revealed the designs and finish selections for the playroom, bar and the guest bedroom, but until now I have only shared a single Instagram post hinting at whats going to happen in the basement bathroom. My virtual silence does not mean I’m not excited about it. The flooring from Cement Tile Shop we selected may be my favorite finishing detail I have ever picked. Check it out below. It looks like art!  Hopefully it is timeless art, not something that is super dated in 10 years or that wears poorly. I think that the fact that it is black and white will keep it on the… Read More
