The black and white marble now covers the powder room floor, much to my pleasure.
design by Steven Gambrel
But with a 10″ backsplash and a wallmounted gold-ish faucet. I’m sure Steven Gambrel didn’t find that piece of stone in a weedy castoff pile. I hope it works!
More patterns makes it way into my daughter’s room via two enormous carved screens. Measuring 4.5 x 8′, these screens only cost $150 for the pair and will operate as her closet doors. That is her closet beyond that looks as if it has a Dan Flavin light installation inside. That is actually a piece of the ceiling trim, but now I’m thinking a neon light for her nightlight.
Show stoppers, huh? Well, she isn’t too excited about them…let’s just say she didn’t squeal and say “thank you, thank you, thank you, I love it!” like she did when she say the sparkly penny tile installed in her bathroom. I’m asking her to give them a chance once they are all painted, the color of her choice. Darn opinions!
And this is a go for the dining room fireplace!
My husband decided the Arabescato pattern was fine for a fireplace surround rather than a whole countertop–and he got to choose the final design of the fireplace. We’re full of compromises around here.
And finally some subtle striae to round out this pattern post:
I found this remnant of Alabama marble that is the perfect size for the basement kitchen. Since it is not a heavy prep kitchen, I don’t feel concern about putting marble in for countertops. Any staining or etching will hopefully blend into the pattern of the stone.
Now I’m ready to hit the week…saving our front entry from looking like a bank, looking for a new refrigerator, ordering sliding door tracks, working on the trim, and finalizing some paint colors. Oh, my brain hurts!
