Calm before the Storm

Its 6am.  I love this time of the morning.  Before I had Clay it was unheard of to be up or even awake before 7, but now, its the best time of the day!!!  I'm laying in my bed - which (hopefully) in the short term future will actually be where my kitchen island bench will be - looking out at a really sunny day!  The husbie has left for work a good hour ago and I still have another hour before hurricane Clayton is awake!  This time of year is always a bit crazy.  My mind is well and truly frazzled and I can't remember a thing.  I only remember what my phone tells me to remember.  So if you come and see me and I don't write down what I am going to do for - tell me to write it down.... Seriously!

Anyway - excuse the rambles... I wanted to show you a gorgeous little bathroom reno that is nearly done.  This house was purchased by a young family earlier this year. Designed in 1927 by the renowned architect E.P Trewern this house features some of the most divine coffered ceilings and detailed plaster ceilings I have seen in a long time!  I always say to my clients they should live in a house before they start to renovate, but with 2 little girls and 1 bathroom with no bath and the smallest little vanity, a bathroom reno was a bit of an immediate must.  As we had to keep the existing linen cupboard, we built the room out by 450mm into the neighbouring bedroom to accommodate a toilet and larger custom vanity.  This created so much space and allowed us to put a 1600 bath in and a separate shower.  We wanted to keep the traditional integrity of the building but bring it into the 21st century so we kept the VJs above the tile line and kept to a smaller bluestone mosaic on the floor to reference the original hexagonal mosaics.  With the shower screen and mirror to go in and a lick of paint to come - I still think this little bathroom is a family friendly stunner!
