I'm trying something new, so be patient with me! Steve and I went up to our home in Channel Islands Harbor to check out our Powder Room. The sink was installed this week, and I was really nervous to see how it turned out. I thought you might like to see my reaction, so I asked Steve to take some video. Let's see how what happened...
I was thrilled with the installation of my antique marble sink! Tom, my general contractor, did exactly what I wanted. The sink was imbedded into the wall, making it feel like a fountain. Here is another short video of how our Powder Room looked when we hung my gilded mirror...
For those of you who can't watch the video, here are a couple of images of my Powder Room now...
Most of the pieces in my Powder Room are fairly inexpensive. My console is a reproduction from Chelsea Textiles, and I purchased my marble sink from my friend Shane (aka Big Daddy). The spout that we finally chose was actually the spout from my fountain in my back yard (I guess I'll have to find another one for my fountain!). My general contractor, Tom dipped my new brass lever in draino for a weekend. It aged the heck out of it. The only splurge was my gorgeous mirror. She is the Queen in the room.
I'll be spending part of my holiday doing the finishing touches to this room and planting around the shutters that are the focal point outside of the window.
A couple close ups!
Next week I'll be able to show you the lights in place!
I'd love to hear what you think! For those of you who subscribe to my blog via e-mail, you can leave a comment here. I'd also like your feedback on the video. Do you like having video on the blog?
Steve and I are off to Ohio tomorrow for a couple of days (I can't wait to share with you what we're working on!), but I will be checking my e-mails to read your comments. I'll be back on tuesday!
