Heavens to Murgatroyd, it's been AGES since my last post! In the past few months, I have spent wonderful and memory-packed times with family over here from Scotland, completed two really fun design jobs, worked Saturday mornings at Masters North Lakes as a Colour Consultant for Wattyl and started a second small business (more on that much later).
Never a dull moment - wouldn't know what to do with myself if I had one :-)
Sooooo, there have been a few photos here and there on my new FB page - Nicola Duncan Designs - of the new bathroom, but to round it all off, I thought I'd share some of the before and after shots that I commissioned from my friendly real estate photographer Todd.
Here you go ....
|On the left, original 50s styling! On the right: ceramic floor tile by Complete Tiles & Stone, Shower Exposure Rail System 2 by Methven, Feature mosaic 'Carnival' from Classic Ceramics, Basin bench Caesarstone Osprey, Taps by Grohe, Basin & WC both reclaimed, Underbench drawer, stool & medicine cabinet - all vintage finds.|
|Bamboo Poles wallpaper in Horizon Blue by Grace Garrett, available from emilyziz.com. Wall-hung loo brush & holder from Argent, loo also has soft-closing lid (which means I slam every other toilet lid I use!)|
|My splurge, Muse wall light from Axo. It's a wire frame with a soft fabric cover - looks like a sea urchin! Wall storage/cabinet is concealed behind the Michael Murphy image, with a mirror on the inside of the door.|
Things I love most?
- the new skylight: it floods this small space with natural light, all for less than $500
- the shower stall: it's huge and I now have a place to put my foot to shave my legs
- the cabinet that's concealed behind the Michael Murphy print (btw, I bought this print, asked the artist Michael if I could reproduce it on the cabinet door, and the amazing chaps at Commex scanned the artwork and printed it directly onto the door)
- my splurge: I put this light on every morning while I have my shower
- and the surprise you get when you turn around and see the wallpaper.
Thanks for reading/looking! Hope you enjoyed.
