Black Bathroom

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

(via Remodelista)

If I had cash for a real remodel I would definitely go all black and white in the pink bathroom.

Black penny rounds would go everywhere on the floors and lovely white subway tiles all over the walls. Its a classic look but still modern with a totally great retro flair.

Remodelista has a great round-up of black tile that is making me crazy.

Stupid pepto pink tiles. I know some folks really adore them – I thought they were cute too when we first moved in.

Now…not so much.

They aren’t like cute fun baby kitty pink, they are like beige molting pink and always remind me of sickly feverish flesh. Some of the tiles are cracked and most are not in great shape. I know when we go to resale the house that bathroom might be a BIG issue.

(The Parker via My Marrakesh)


I’ve been dying to know what these rugs were ever since I saw them at The Parker in Palm Springs. When I saw them pop up at Desire to Inspire via images of April Tidey’s amazing interiors I just had to ask. Thanks to midcenturyjo I now know.

I’m blogging it here so I don’t forget.

***A quick google informed me that they are VERY expensive…so never mind. You will never see them at The Brick House. Boo Hoo.

Desire to Inspire)

Why must lovely dark houses keep popping up and persuading me to paint my house charcoal! Dammit!!! I know, I live in the desert. It is a HORRIBLE idea to paint my house almost black when it can easily get over 100 degrees for three months and I have no insulation.

Oh but I LOVE it SO much. When is form better than function?
