Luxury Shower Drains

Luxury Shower Drains?!  I know, right?  You've never given a moments thought about it until you are sitting here reading this.  But now that I've seen how pretty these are...normal, plain Jane drains seem downright drab.

This is the one I saw in Traditional Home that caught my eye:

So, of course, I had to see what other kinds were out there.  California Faucets has a big selection of luxury drains to match all kinds of styles.

Only downside is that I don't think we'll be doing a bathroom remodel anytime soon.  We FINALLY finished getting our kitchen redone (new counter tops and back splash) and painting the nursery so my husband has put the kibosh on any other home renovations for the foreseeable future!  

Hope everyone had a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend!

Mosiac House Moroccan Tiles

We are in the process of redoing our kitchen.  Not entirely, mind you, but new counter top and backsplash.  I say in the process because as per any home reno, disaster had to ensue.  I literally want to knock Home Depot out but I will save you from the drama of the whole scenario.  And, if it ever gets finished, I'll post some pics.

Because this isn't our forever home, we opted just to redo the counter top and backsplash for resale purposes only.  That and I couldn't take looking at that horrible Texan floor tile that they put all over the counter top and backsplash for one more minute.  But, if I had unlimited possibilities in my choices, I think I would have opted for something with a little more pizazz - like Moroccan tile.  I am dying to cover the fllor of a sunroom or porch in Moroccan tile and maybe even a bathroom or kitchen.

Mosaic House was in my most recent issue of Coastal Living and has a great selection of patterns to choose from.   Doesn't these want to make you start a renovation project, like now?

Check out Mosiac House's website for their full list of options.  The color choice and patterns are endless.  I love how summery and beachy so many of them feel at this time of year!  Plus, even in the dead of winter, these tiles would make you happy!

Jenny Wolf Interiors

I read about Jenny Wolf Interiors in the latest issue of Traditional Home and was immediately intrigued by the tagline to describe her - "home as autobiography".  This is my favorite type of design - one that incorporates cohesive design planning but doesn't strip a home of all of its personal assets - things the home owner loves, cherishes and makes their home unique.  I try to channel this type of design in my own home - from incorporating family heirlooms and treasures from my mom and grandmothers and incorporating my own, slightly more contemporary taste along with the antiques.

So, when I searched through New York-based designer Jenny Wolf's residential portfolio, I fell in love immediately.  Apologies for the number of photos but they were all too beautiful...and this is just a sampling - visit her residential portfolio for more greatness.  Look how each space tells a story of an individual homeowner and not the just the designer.  Enjoy!
