My blue world is really a happy place

Blue.  It is my favorite color.  I love so many hues from peacock, to aqua to baby blue to robin’s egg.  Give me shades of blues and greens and I’m one happy camper.  It’s probably not a coincidence that my sign is Cancer – a water sign.


My other hero during this renovation (outside of Jonathan) is my friend, and designer, Scott Laslie. Scott and I have traveled in many of the same circles for years in Atlanta.  When we started this project, I reached out to him to help with our interiors. I now know why he has earned such a great reputation.


In addition to having impeccable taste, he listens and delivers.  Scott has since moved to Chicago and without even seeing our home, he came back with an incredible design after a few phone conversations and fabric samples. I am so excited about the way this is going to turn out! (Please ignore my dirty porch staging area)


I’ve mentioned before about my obsession with bathrooms.   I knew I wanted a powder room that was going to be special.  Well, we are knocking this one right out of the park! This is the bathroom wall that the sink will sit on.

The sink wall is going to be tiled from floor to ceiling.  Similar to this photo.


But with this gorgeous, Waterworks blue 1/2″ penny tile.  SQUEAL – I am so excited.



Our found and soon-to-be refinished vintage sink  will be mounted onto the tile wall.


And, this perfect faucet will mount on the sink, thus eliminating any sort of gross contraptions I had previously found.


Since we loved this tile so much, we’ve decided that we will tile the lower portion of the fireplace surround with the cracked subway tile.  We will find an old mantle and lay the tile, in subway pattern, underneath the mantle.  Addison and I can take our piano lessons in such a pretty music room.


This renovation is tough stuff.  This meeting with Scott on Friday made me take a step back and get excited about the finished project, and not the journey. While that’s not the way I choose to go through life, I’ll make this choice to go through the renovation and try and focus on the end result.


We are back in business and blue skies are here again!
