faux bamboo sink bases




J. Tribble 'Bristol' sink base
Coastal Living Magazine
I think that if I hadn't found an antique french chest for my master bath vanity, I might have used one of these faux bamboo beauties from J. Tribble Antiques.
They come in colors other than gray, too...

...but do they really need to?

amazing gray/green paint colors

Oh, boy. You loved these bath cabinets. I got lots of e-mail asking the cabinet color.
I wish I knew.
I did find a few more nice gray/green cabinets...

original source unknown
 
 
While I don't know the exact colors of these cabinets, I can give you my picks for some good gray/greens:
 
 
Amazing Gray
Sherwin Williams 7044
(the color of the bookcases in the first photo)
 
 
Analytical Gray
Sherwin Williams 5071
 
 
And my favorite right now:
 
Jogging Path
Sherwin Williams 7638
 
 
Use any one of these on trim or cabinetry and throw in a little gold
 (like the mirror frame in the second photo, or some aged brass hardware)
and I think you'd be a happy soul.

greige bath cabinets

 
 
I'm usually a fan of the blue grays, but this green gray cabinetry is great,
especially with the gold framed mirror.

wicker wrapped bottles





Note to self:
You should've gotten that cute little wicker bottle you found
at the antique shop over the weekend.

indoor trellis

Paul Costello for
The Wall Street Journal
 
Did you see Sara Ruffin Costello's piece in the WSJ recently on the trellised conservatory in her New Orleans Gothic Revival home? She replaced the aging latticework with new and added a Moorish arch above each door.  
 
Oh, boy. Makes me want to do this...

Jamie's touches...




A few new designs from Jamie Herzlinger.
 Love the gray tones in this master bedroom;  the wall covering is from Phillip Jeffries.
This monochrome look is my favorite for a bedroom - so soothing.


 
Isn't this a stunning powder room?
The charcoal gray wall covering is from Jim Thompson.
 
 
 
White and marble is so classic for the bathroom; but the black door stars here, too.

acrylic and lucite furniture

 

in a local store and loved them? 
 
Then I saw this:

 
and realized I wasn't the only one who loved them.
 
But then I saw this:
 
 
and wished I'd bought every last one.
 
Then I saw more images of lucite pieces like this:
 

and this:

 
and this:
 


and it led me to find a whole world of lucite pieces like this:

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
