Bano Beauties

hello there, blog friends.
It's almost been a month. Blush
Who would have thought that caring for a newborn
 would occupy my every moment?
I don't mind too much.

Carlo has the most beautiful peepers.
He's so observant and doesn't like to miss a thing.
Hence, mama not having time to surf blogland.
I feel like a broken record {really}.

Well, the marble island countertop is scheduled to be installed next Tuesday.
It's about flipping time.
I apologize, but I'm at the point of pure and utter irritation.
Once it's in, I'll upload pictures immediately.

Since the kitchen project is coming to a close,
it's only natural that I'd find something else to
day dream about and spend money on.
The kitchen and the master bathroom were two of the big projects
I foresaw before purchasing the cottage.
Remember this beauty?
Great bones, no?
The tile though...bleh!
It's too bad because the quality of the stone is quite nice.
And the limestone countertop and seat in the shower probably
cost the previous owners a pretty penny.
While this bathroom won't be an overnight project
{heck...nothing we do is overnight}
I'm beginning to gather inspiration for the space.

I'm loving the paneled walls and the wall mounted faucets.
Again, wood on the walls.  I also dig the vessels and their bridge faucets.
Can you tell I love me some dark wood mixed with clean white fixtures?
Tile soaring up the walls!
Antique cabinet re purposed. Lovely!
Hex tiles and marble.  Can't go wrong.

All very different but beautiful banos.
It will be a challenge for me to decide the direction of the room.
Too many great looks!
We'll be tackling the master bedroom, as well.
Mommy and daddy need a retreat, no?

I'll be back in a splash.
