Welcome back Design Lovers,
We are on week 4 of One Room Challenge, sponsored by Better Homes and Gardens. We hit the halfway mark and I am starting to get a little nervous. I need all your positive vibes. The Bathroom is demoed and ready for all the other finishes and we are now waiting on product! Here is me pre blue bathtub and tile removal, getting excited to move forward!
It has been a slow week work-wise because we are still waiting on product. I have received the pendant lights from Kohler, and I am oh so in love… When I did a quick Instagram Reel unpacking the box, my friend over at the Kohler Signature Store reminded me to put distilled water in those. Thinking he must have sent the message to the wrong person I responded with a quick “Whaaat, water in the lights?” Turns out they DO have water. Inspired by a 1920’s lacemaker lamp that utilized a candle and surrounded by globes of water to reflect light throughout the room. How cool is that???
Speaking of Lights, I am thrilled that I have yet another amazing local sponsor join my One Room Challenge project. Elektra Lights! I absolutely love working with them here locally in Milwaukee. They have a collection of amazing lighting and accessories brands and are super designer friendly. Make sure to check them out! The flush mount ceiling light I selected is very contemporary and clean line with a little twist.
I received the flooring from Floorcoverings International Milwaukee South this week. It is absolutely gorgeous. I mentioned previously that our floors are challenging because we cannot remove the tile due to it being heated with water based radiant heat. This product is amazing, and we can go over tile with it. It is actually an engineered stone product with a protective layer on top ensures the surface doesn’t scratch, while the rigid mineral core and cork underlayment are super easy on the feet. I love the gray tone with white marbling through it! We chose this design for its look, but also for its size. A lot of times people think they need to go with smaller pattern or smaller scale tile for a small room… In my opinion, making a bold statement on the floor with large scale tile will actually make the room look bigger.
We were also able to get the countertop measured this week. Typically, the measure is done AFTER the cabinet is in, but being that this is a wall-to-wall vanity they were able to get it done!
This Friday we are installing the drywall and waterproofing the tub surround for the new tile. Once our tub is here we can get the plumbing going and then tile and other installations.
Check in next week for more progress!!
Thank you for following along and thank you to my amazing sponsors:
