The Powder Room
This is our downstairs powder room. If you enlarge the second image, you might be able to see the pretty damask pattern in the wall tile. When the light shines brightly through the little window the pattern on the wall tiles is very evident and is just gorgeous.
Behind the sink wall is a generously sized shower and to the direct right another wall hides the toilet. To the centre right are the steps down to the laundry. I cut up the grey floor tile into mosaics for the shower recess. They look great and they were so affordable! Everyone comments on the tiles. Oh how I LOVE a bargain.... with lots of bang for your buck!
A wonderful Mum at my boys school, sourced the taps and sink also at great prices for me as she is a qualified Interior Designer. Thanks J... we love them!
The rose is from my hubby.... my first bunch of flowers for our new home. He has his 'beer goggles' on at the moment and keeps staring all googly eyed at me and thanking me for the house!!! I'm lapping it up and using it to my advantage whenever he suggests something tragic wrt decoration/design. "Trust me" has so much more mileage now!
We have made a new house rule. We all sit down at our little 4 seater table for dinner together each night and we take turns at saying what we were most grateful for in the day. It's now getting a bit tedious as "this beautiful house" has been done to death. Last night my 'grateful thing'?.....the concreters started on the driveway yesterday and will be all done by the end of Tuesday..... less mud! Oh my poor floors... they're not lookin' too flash at present!
PS. I have tried to visit you all but my internet connection is too slow. It's like being locked out of a lolly shop. The cable guy didn't even turn up for his appointment yesterday so I have to wait until Thursday now for the resheduled appointment.
