The marble hexagon tiles for our bathroom are sitting in our hallway, waiting patiently for a floor to be installed in the bathroom so they can become a permanent part of the house. Before that can happen, though, we need our plumbing work to be done! Plumber #3’s estimate arrived yesterday, and while it’s higher than we were hoping or expecting, we have full confidence that this guy will (a) SHOW UP AND DO THE WORK, and (b) do a great job. Right? Right! The extra money is worth having to go through all of this for a 4th time, believe me.
By the way, the last time I mentioned the marble hexagons, someone asked for my source—we bought ours at Fuda Tile.
I’ve been trying to choose just the right color for the outside of the clawfoot tub, and I think the center color here (Benjamin Moore “Blushing Red”) might be the winner. It’s just the right amount of pink without being a full-on magenta.
Finding the right light fixture for the ceiling is proving to be tricky. The scale is difficult since our ceilings are high, but the room is very small. It’s going to be the sole light source in the room (except for an alley-facing window), too. Decisions! I know I don’t want anything fake-antiquey (no Restoration Hardware, etc.). I’ve been thinking about the Kartell Gé pendant, possibly in clear or blue, but I’m not sure I’m love with it.
