Hi folks!  Before I share how things have been progressing with our major upstairs renovation, I thought I’d show you my “dream” of how I want it to end up looking.  I’m lucky to have a husband who supports my insane Houzz/ Pinterest/ magazine flipping for inspiration and here are some of the “winners” we both decided we like and want to emulate:

Below, the beautiful inspiration for the master bathroom~

Pedistal Sink
I love, love, love the arches.  Love the half-wall separating the sinks and the toilet, and love the simplicity of the same tile but in different cuts throughout the room.
I found the below pic in Country Living magazine and realized I loved the ceramic console sink look.


Isn’t that adorable?  Loved the his and hers.

So I asked our architect about incorporating room for two console sinks like that, but space was getting kind of tight and those sinks are pretty wide.  So– voila– latest inspiration, courtesy of Apartment Therapy:

double console sink


There’s something that looks so classic traditional and yet farmehouse-y to me about a double console sink.  I really like its simplicity but I love getting two sink basins in there.

The next picture I found that really spoke to me (and thankfully David too!) was this one, from House Beautiful:

I love, love the brass fixtures with the calacatta gold marble tiles.  So, so beautiful.  And fitting for an old house.  This picture also made me crave two shower heads… how luxurious!

Anyway, what do y’all think?  Can’t wait until it’s all done and we can compare the finished product to the motivating forces behind the decorating decisions.  Hope this bathroom turns out as well as my dreams!
