Lots of good things have been happening at the house, I’ve just fallen back into being horrible about updating the blog. Above, you’ll see the main bathroom, both it’s current state and what it was like when we bought the house.
On the floor and ceiling are the mosaic tile, which is composed of 1″ x 2″ marble tiles with tiny quarter inch square pieces of marble set in it. It’s gorgeous, but I don’t recommend going with such a design unless you really know what you’re doing. We didn’t, and it’s caused several days worth of additional work to get everything to come out correctly. It was pretty easy to work with in the 6″ strip in the wall, it was when we were trying to do large chunks of it that it became a pain.
This room really embodies the idea that we’ve tried applying to most of the rooms in the house. We want every room to be truly unique, with something that sets it aside from what would be the norm. I can’t wait until we get the vanity finished for this bathroom, it’s going to be a real work of art all by itself.
With the window and the marble up now, it’s hard to photograph this room well. During the day, there is so much light flooding the room, reflecting off all that tile, it changes the color of everything. If you try using the flash, it just reflects back off of everything. I need to learn more about photography.
