The kitchen cabinets are white on the periphery and the island is stained dark brown. The counter tops are quartz and reverse. Dark on the white cabinets and creamy white on the island. They are truly beautiful. You can see some of the flooring in these photos. It was interrupted when the counter tops showed up early.
In the master shower, we closed in the back wall to add a niche for soap products and made the shower larger. The tiles are very contemporary larger white tiles with waves. Here it is before grouting. The seat will match the counter tops.
The master bath floor is a hexi tile that is beige and white. Some of the tiles repeat the wavy lines of the shower wall. I love this floor.
We removed the mantles in both sides of the fireplace and tiled to the ceiling on each side with very large rectangular tiles. They are a mottled grungy grey. Very cool!
When picking lemons, i discovered this tiny little hummingbird nest. there were two birds, who we named George and Gracie. Who knows why! Over the course of about 5 days, the went from barely visible above the top of the nest to not being able to fit in the nest. Mama never got too excited when I was around. I didn't hover, just staying long enough to catch a couple of photos each day.
I wanted to tell the story of George and Gracie. What better way than through digital scrapbooking media.There are so many wonderful products from which to choose.
Next up was the placement of cabinets. This is a view from the front door. The column on at the corner of the the bar was removed; the one across from it was reduced. The view from the front door is so much more expansive. I love that deep chocolate wall.
In the bar area, the wall nest to the door way was removed. A wine fridge and other bar elements will be centered on the kitchen wall viewed through the new expanded doorway.
