Bed and Bath

When I was designing the bathroom, I changed my mind several times until I decided on this light, bright and calming design. I ended up with Carrera marble looking porcelain tile with glass tile accents from Sydney Glass Tiles. I really love the way it looks like marble, but it has the ease of cleaning/maintenance of porcelain tile. Again, I should mention that Reagan at The Floor Store of Acadiana was instrumental in helping me decide on the final product. Thanks again, Reagan!

It only made sense to continue this design into the bedroom. So, I retired the heavy, dark wood bed to the attic and bought a fabric covered headboard which changed the entire look of the room. As always, there are still several finishing touches that have not been completed. I have an accent pillow for the bed being made. I'm hunting for a new lamp for Lon's side table and new shades for both lamps. The benches need recovering and a monogrammed duvet is needed for the down comforter at the foot of the bed. The mirror is going to be another crafty project.....covering the entire thing with oyster shells. Oh, and I know it's kinda passe in the design world, but I love my juju hat above my bed. :)

I created the artwork by painting canvases, adding some shells (some found by us on vacations and some acquired over the years) and pouring a clear epoxy over them. It works for now until I can afford some original art. So, I'm off to obsess about the guest bathroom.
