Bathroom Envy…..

With Maddie in preschool 4 mornings a week and Harry ever more active at almost 11 months, I now understand who the silly old Calgon ads were aimed at.  Calgon may not be my thing, but I’ll take a bubble bath with my favorite L’Occitane fragrance, some relaxing music and a refreshing beverage any day.  Of course, how could you not relax in this setting?

Not to be overly dramatic, but I literally fell off my chair the first time I saw those floors.  LOVE!

It’s all in the details…..

It is often the little details that take something from good to great.  Today, I was perusing the website of Liz Williams Interiors and noticed this image from a 2003 Better Homes & Gardens publication titled “Window and Wall Ideas.”

I immediately recognized this fabric (Scalamandré Aviary in Taupe), a sample of which I have in my files from a trip to the Design Center.  The fabric ended up not working for the intended project and I sortof forgot about it.  But, this image gave me some renewed interest.  I love the band of brown fabric on the edge of these panels, and even think the small bow details could be sweet for a bedroom.

I did a similar band down my family room drapes in our old house.  Unfortunately, the images are on a currently defunct computer that I must get to my IT person to rescue with a whole host of other missing data! 

As I’ve mentioned before, we are on a decorating freeze as a cross country move may be in our future.  But, this doesn’t stop me from planning in case we don’t end up moving.  I am thinking a neutral grasscloth wallpaper for my master bedroom with the subtle blue from this fabric pulled up on to the ceilings.  I’ve got three windows in the master bedroom and a triple window in our sitting room…..I am thinking this fabric would work well for simple pinch pleated panels, with interest added by way of a band of solid fabric. 

Do you have a project where the little details made the project?  I’d love to see photos or hear about it.
