Guest Bath…Before & After

Where we went with more of a zen vibe and used textures in a big way in the master bath we flipped the switch in the guest bath and went in for a Hollywood Regency vibe. We used a favorite color combo platter of mine…a vibrant green mixed with black & white, then played with the hexagon shape in several places that set a mod/ vintage tone. And for good glam measure we went with a mirrored vanity and a vintage milk glass pendant.

viola…hello hollywood!

It’s 127 time…Show & Tell Day One

Can you believe it…it’s that time of year again. The days are long, the weather is warm and the 127 is on!

If you aren’t familiar with what the 127 is I will quickly get you up to speed…it is the World’s Longest Yard Sale! Yes you heard it right…it is held the first week of August , it’s on rural route 127, it runs from Alabama through Michigan and it’s 690 miles long!

Whenever I share my enthusiasm of this epic adventure I get one of the following two responses…Oh wow that sounds AMAZING, what’s it like? or eww!  I get more wows that ewws but I get it, treasure hunting isn’t for everyone! So for those who are curious instead of a photo recap of this year’s trip I decided to do my 127 Show & Tell video style…

One rental mini van, three days, four states and 961 miles and this is how it went down…

Day One…Signal Mountain, TN to Crossville, TN

 

 

Check out tomorrow for day two’s clips from the road!

Dream Textures

bathroom textures

bathroom textures two

Although I am a total ROYGBIV gal and color is my middle name (not really it’s Suzanne) for my master bath remodel that is just wrapping up I leaned hard into textures…when I say hard I mean I followed my normal gig of more is more. AND I LOVE IT!!!!

These are the textures I combo plattered into the bath of my dreams. I will have a reveal and some fun before and afters but still waiting for the final touches!

Now onto the guest bath…

Often the question comes up of how and where do I get inspired from a design perspective…

For me it’s simply that I get out there with me eyes wide open no matter where I am with ferocious curiosity. I look up, look down, open doors, ask questions and go into corner’s (you never know what you might miss otherwise) of wherever my adventure might take me. Those adventures are sometimes a hike out in the wonderful world of Mother Nature, exploring a city and all it has to offer, rummaging through a flea market or in this case an amazing visit to Palm Springs.

Palm Springs for me was an EPIC ULTRA hotbed for all things design and inspiration…here is my Show & Tell.

stay curious,
