No design project is a straight line. Despite all the planning, attention to detail, thinking and over thinking (me!) there are always twists and turns, unexpected issues, delays, balls get dropped, it happens. And at our Canyon Meadows Project it all happened. Things I could never have imagined happened … for instance the seller passed away days before my client was set to take possession … perhaps setting the tone for things to come.
Thankfully my client weathered each disappointment and test of patience, even when they felt relentless with a spirit of adventure and sense of humor, because at a certain point all we could do was laugh.
Every design project has a spring board, an element that is the inspiration from which everything else develops. In the #ProjectUrbanCowboy master en-suite, that jumping off point was the matte black fixtures. Sleek and modern, I was thrilled when my clients agreed to them. In particular the wall mounted faucets, which offer a clean and crisp look to the vanity. But unlike deck mounted faucets, wall mounted faucets require significant more forethought and planning. And, of course, should something ever go wrong, it’s good to have the name of someone local who could come out and fix any issues you may have with them, like the team at Make It Drain (makeitdrainplumbing.com/plumbing-services/faucet-repair/) in Los Angeles. Given the popularity of these mounted faucets, I thought I would break down the basics of designing around them for you.
Summer is officially here and while for many that means lazy days in the sun, for me it appears to mean bathroom renovations! I’ve had a number of bathroom projects land in my lap, everything from a powder room looking to make an dramatic impact to a master bathroom looking for a long overdue update. One thing that I really wanted to find was the perfect vanity for my bathroom. There are so many things that go into renovating a bathroom, from finding the perfect vanity and lighting to dealing with contractors, such as plumbers Lynchburg and electricians. You never know how much you have to do until you try it. Over the years, I have renovated my own bathroom and have grown my knowledge of where to find great contractors, good plumbers, and even local electrician services similar to Safe and Sound Electric in my local area. This new talent I often bring to my clients who are interested in bathroom renovation. However, one thing that I really wanted to find was the perfect vanity for a bathroom. There are so many tips for buying a vanity, so at least I won’t be clueless during my search.
