Barn Doors…Can’t Get Enough!

Wow! So, um, it’s been a while, huh? Sorry about that. We have a lot of things in the works but nothing completely finished yet. Rest assured, as soon as we start finishing some of these projects then we’ll post them.

In the meantime, here’s some sliding barn door inspiration! Because, I mean, who doesn’t love a great sliding barn door? I wish there was some place in my house I could incorporate one, but for right now I’ll just drool over them via my computer screen.

That last one is my favorite with the awesome rug and chandelier and the colors. If I had a mountain cabin, it would be that great mix of rustic and modern.

I’m sure the barn doors are just a fad and will eventually fade away, but I’ll just enjoy this very cool decor/architectural deign element and longingly wish for my own.

Until my next design obsession,


Half-Bath Mood Board: London is Calling…

Sorry it’s been a little while! I’ve been busy with reupholstering a scroll bench (more to come on that as soon as I get the legs and finish it), plus I’ve started a new project…redoing our half-bath!

We bought a new construction house and it gorgeous but some of the design elements are just plain awful. For example, the builder-grade towel racks and toilet paper holders? Ours are a disgusting off-white color. If they were white I wouldn’t mind so much but our towel racks, toilet paper holders, toilets, vanities, and tubs are the gross off-white. Bleh!

So I decided to make the bathrooms prettier by getting rid of the towel racks and toilet paper holders and replacing them with brushed nickel fixtures, slapping some paint on the walls and throwing in some great decor items.

Here’s my idea for the half-bath:

We also plan to add some other U.K.-inspired decor like a Beatles album. Oh, and I just finished painting the walls a very light grey color. What do you think?

Have you remodeled your bathroom before? How did it turn out?

Sweaty from painting all night,
