I hope everyone reading had a safe and happy Fourth of July! Husband and I took off for the Black Hills of South Dakota this year to celebrate, since you haven’t had a proper Fourth unless you know the holy-shit-panicky-fear of dodging for your life as bottle rockets whiz mere inches from your head, lit by 13-year olds that lack any sort of impulse control and/or my dad (fireworks are legal almost everywhere in South Dakota). It was lots of fun! As long as you don’t wear a lot of hairspray or anything else flammable on or anywhere near your head, that is. Sacrifices.
We are finally getting closer to starting on our main floor bathroom remodel, and so Levi and I have spent the past few weekends on the hunt for ideas. But…where in the heckity-heck does a person go in Colorado to get some cool and off-the-wall ideas? After spending a mediocre day at the Denver Design Center recently, I am beginning to realize that it’s pretty fantastic exercise in futility especially if you are not working with a licensed interior designer or contractor. Levi and I would like to be hands-on with most of the remodel (hence no designer or contractor) but use unique products & support some local businesses (sorry Lowe’s) too…so yikes. Our search so far for cool bathroomy things hasn’t been easy, and I am two seconds away from recruiting an architect friend of mine to go shopping with us so we can at least get into some of the numerous trade-only stores. Will they notice that technically she’s a licensed landscape architect? Hehhhhhh, desperation. I HAVE MY SOURCES.
In the meanwhile, we have made a few decisions on the easier aspects of the remodel–like the wall colors & paint. I want the bathroom to be functional but unique, and so we have decided on horizontal black and white stripes. And a gold ceiling! I am excited for that part of it, I’ll have a better mock-up of what we’re planning to do on the blog shortly, so stay tuned…
