Pretty but Practical? [interior Design]

While cruising through the Remodelista blog I saw this post on bath trays and thought "are these practical?". Does anyone really use these? They seem like they would get in the way of the task at hand. I need to get in and out! Yes of course they are pretty and great for decor but it would drive me nuts to be moving this back and forth, in and out. I'll think about them for my vacation home after I win the lotto though. Maybe I will have time then to watch a candle burn while bathing. I'll have to Pin It to my "I wish" board in the mean time.

Bar Renovation "Progress" [interior Design]

I'm going to keep it real. There is nothing exciting about this post. It is a depressing "update" on the bar renovation that has been in the works for years now. Since it's taken so long to rework 6 linear feet of space, you can imagine the "progress" you are about to see.

The big news is that the two cabinets are here. Have they been installed since we got them weeks ago? No. The one has had the side cut by my dad to fit around the pipes but that is it. We also got a pretty awesome gift from my sister for Christmas - a beverage fridge. That arrived last week and is sitting in the area waiting for it's final resting spot.

As this photo indicates this area is a hot mess waiting to be addressed:

Excuse the phone photo but does this really look like it deserves a good shot?
We are currently shopping for sinks and we are eyeing something like this:
The "add to cart" price is $212.47 and it's 20" wide. Maybe I can find a little wider to fit the 24" sink base cabinet but that's a good price. In retrospect I should've gone bananas and planned for a 42" trough like this :

I'm grunting like Tim Allen just looking at it...and now I'm wiggling my fingers in thought like the Grinch.
That's all folks! Stay tuned for more thrilling updates.

Photo of the Week #0056

This latest installment has a personal flare to it. This engagement session was shot by James Moes in Machu Picchu and Cuzco, Peru. I may have mentioned it before, but to jog your memory my mom was born and raised in Lima, Peru. These photos are beautiful!

Here is an extra because the shot is so stunning. Having been there in person it really is hard to wrap your brain around. I wasn't crazy about some of the paths literally being on the cliffs edge. Literally. If you weren't paying attention you could walk right off and base jump thousands of feet. I sweat just thinking about it.

Funky Tile [interior Design]

While searching for wood looking tile to use on an exterior project I came across these fun tiles. They definitely can hold their own in a mature space but the colors are so fun that I immediately thought kids bath. One of their standard sizes is 8"x48". Word.

The company is called Uonuon (on a side note you can flip the word up-side-down and it reads the same - marketing smarties). Fun stuff!
