Master Bed and Bath

Our bedroom was just your basic sized master bedroom.  There was nothing special about it.  It was bright, clean, peaceful and comfortable, but it was missing something.  We thought it would be pretty to put in picture frame moldings behind the bed to give it some character.  We also got a really pretty light to go into the center of the room we well as a new bed and comforter. Between the moldings, the bed, light, and the plantation shutters (we did these throughout the entire house), the room ended up looking gorgeous.  Too bad I never took pictures of the finished room, or bathroom!DSC_0034DSC_0058DSC_0060Our Owl Lane house had the most unnecessarily large bathroom I have ever seen. At the time it truly felt ridiculous to have such a huge bathroom, but now I would do anything for that space again.  Our bathroom in Compass Pointe was a lot smaller, the entire bathroom was the size as my closet in Owl Lane (we had his and hers).  The difference was that the Owl Lane bathroom was ugly, brown, beige, and had such chunky huge finishes, while the Compass Pointe bathroom was white, bright, clean looking, and more our taste. We loved everything the builder had to offer but we really didn’t like any of the counter options or the lights and mirrors, so we decided to go with the free or “included” counters, lights, and mirrors, and would eventually redo the bathroom counters the way we envisioned later on.DSC_0006DSC_0016DSC_0022We were in a huge subway tile phase during this house. We had a subway tiled shower and wanted to extend it to the giant bath and behind our sinks. Since the builder didn’t offer this, David did it himself. It was his first time installing subway tile and he did pretty good.  There were a lot of things I am sure he would do different the next time around, but overall it looked pretty good.  I wonder if our new owners are able to tell that somebody inexperienced installed them. My vote is yes, but I am sure David thinks that they look professional.  DSC_0057IMG_3189IMG_3894
