i hope this finds you with a big 'ol smile on your face.
i'm wearing one.
it's friday......... aNd... i just arrived in Dallas for Hope Spoken!

it has been years since i've had a long drive like that solo.
though my rear was tired of sitting... i loved the drive.
cranked up the tunes...
sang like i didn't care who saw...
and talked to the big man above.
it was great.

i wanted to hop on & share something really fast...

our master bath

it's where we brush our teeth...
and wash our faces...
where he shaves...
while i try to tame my hair.
where our little one loves to take a bath.

Untitled Untitled

i'll say... i knOw... it's a simple blank canvas of a space right now.
would like to add some color... and touches here & there...
but it's one of those things i've been "getting to".
oh my word... my "getting to" list in this house is mighty.

it's not super noticeable here...
but the frames around the mirrors are actually a lighter shade.
have been pondering a color change to those.... easy enough.
i just keep going back & forth on that.
hmmm

home...
the making of it...
is such a process isn't it?!

sometimes the process & ideas flow like a river...
it feels clear... the direction you want to meander...
and other times... it seems your feet are stuck in the mud.

 i'm learning... that bOth are good... at least i think so.

i'm not a bath tub person... but felt it was important for resale.
ha!
so used to moving... it's part of me.

lil bit likes to bubble up & watch a show in there every so often.
precious little... she's like a tiny peanut in there.

you would have thought it was the world's most important decision...
when it came time to pick the plumbing fixtures.
just as my sister told me... i called her a bazillion times you know....
she was right...
in the end either way would have been perfectly great.

to me they're a bit "modern"... and a bit "classic".
i like that.
i'm really happy with them though... would choose them again no question.

one thing i was certain i wanted... i had them build in a little foot ledge.
see it down there in the shower?
so when i shave... i've got a foot prop.
that thing may be my favorite!

subway tile... i clearly love it.
the grout color on the walls... the choosing of... of my word... that was a doozy too.
in this bath i finally leaped with subtle... by going low contrast.
for some reason i felt my mind would crave the simplicity... the quiet in here.

of course i see spaces with high contrasting grout... and i freak...
i love it so much.
:)

the sconces... when i saw them... i knew.
i love their shape against the rectangle tile.

the man cave.
bahahahaha
 
the tile made it's way in here too...
in a high... almost five feet... wainscoting... around all walls.
can't believe i took a pic of the toilet. 

UntitledUntitled Untitled

there's a little nook on the opposite side of the shower...
right now... it's temporarily housing a small cabinet & a favorite print.
i'd like a tall narrow cabinet in there... to fit the area better...
and i'm thinking that might be a fun spot to add a pop of color too.

Untitled Untitled

it was funny... before it was built...
i imagined myself being at that sink (above)... the one on the right.
once we were actually standing in it... no way...
it felt right for me to be at the other.
hubby thought so too... we fell into place.
 i guess it's like when you go to a hotel and one side of the bed feels right.

i do want to add a hanging pendant above the tub.
just need to find one.

i look forward to seeing how this space evolves.
my feet might feel stuck right now... but when i do get them out...
i love that part!
after all one of my favorite things is tweaking home.
