Time for Paint

Picking paint colors can be a stressful task because what you see on the swatch is never what you see on the wall. I've found some colors in my research but it always surprises me how different colors look from house to house and room to room. That's why most the house looked like the pictures below.

Here's our inspiration picture for the family room. Posted by Caitlin Creer (more about her later :)

A sneak peek..

There is something about having a cherry cabinet in an all marble bathroom. It's a great contrast. Especially when you have the talented Benjamin Blackwelder making the vanity. We used hex tile in a couple places in this house. It has a early 1900's feel.

And nothing like a 1923 original clawfoot tub to compliment the other finishes for this bathroom. If you need one of these call Mike at the Tub Doctor. He has 70+ of them and he can re-enamel them any color. If you're going to do a tub, it may as well look classy. And no, I'm not a fan of the space-wasting corner jetted tubs. They're so 2002.

And this is the kids bathroom vanity, still needs drawers. We did a 1" white ceramic hex tile with a black inlay. This yellow light fixture is going to be a perfect accent in this bathroom.
