Fun Friday ~ Before and After

I thought it would be fun to come full circle this week and see before and after pictures of this powder room. This is in the home of the client that I spoke about in my Monday blog. She loves the green and orange mix and has for years. Nicolette did a blog on copper a while back and I commented that I am using a copper sink vessel in a project. I said I would take some pictures. Here they are ~ with my little Canon. When Bob comes, my professional photographer, I am sure he will know how to shoot a powder room with two big mirrors and perhaps use a wide angle lens so you may see more of the room at one time. I on the other hand was a bit challenged. I am even in some of the shots ~ mirrors ~ what can I say.

First, before shots. This is before we did anything at all....



When we painted the public spaces, we painted the powder room the lovely pale green we used in the family and sun rooms. I took more pictures as we were getting ready to design it....




We added a beautiful vanity with storage and copper sink vessel, chrome fixtures and accessories, the lovely aluminum vases (still awaiting their sprigs), large scale art and mirrors (one full length & one for the vanity both custom framed in copper), and a fabulous pendent (there was no ceiling fixture previously), and an area rug atop their beautiful hardwood floor. After.....







I actually took these pictures today. Just a few more touches and the powder room will be done. We started discussing the design for her dining room ~ I am excited!

Happy weekend!

Silver, silver....



I know gold is coming back. I love gold. But I also love silver. I love diamonds too but that is another story. I decided to search for silver items that I really like. Found them. I can see using these tiles from Metal Stainless Steel Tiles.....



I have a couple of kitchen projects coming up. These would make wonderful backsplashes. I also love silver (aluminum) vases and sculptors (at the top). These are from Bard International...

I really like the shape of the left ones and the texture of the one on the right...


The one on the right, I have in my home; I just placed the ones on the left in a client's powder room. Again, the texture and shapes really stand out to me. I have a theme of diamonds (go figure ~ I like diamonds of any kind) in my living room so the vases add to the unity.

There they are on top of the cabinet.

A few more. This time from Palecek....


I also have the bottom two in my home...
I have three of them on top of my china cabinet...


That's the floor vase with yucca sticks in my family room.

Wow, I guess I really do like silver. I think it is versatile and can be warmed up by placing it with warm woods and hues.

Here is the answer to the age old question (in my opinion)... can you mix metals? Can one have both silver and gold tones in one room? Yes!

What do you think... silver OR gold or can you mix it up?
