It All Started with a Talavera Inspired Plaque...

For a single businessman, enamored with Mexican culture, the Master Bath remodel began with this plaque...

                                                                      and this tile!

On a recent business trip to Puebla, Mexico my Client carefully carried a large box of colorful Talavera tiles through customs and into the States, with a vision of transforming his Master Bath into the Latin American experience he cherishes.

 The demolition:

Watch the progression. Now the fun begins!

The tub / shower walls are complete!

New porcelain floor tiles!

    Now on to the vanity... new cultured granite top and faucet have been installed...
                                  ... the back splash and a fresh coat of wall paint...  


What's next... some time to settle in and enjoy ... and then, possibly a familiar textured "worn" wall treatment, aged accessories, Talavera pottery and a switch plate, colorful area rugs...

The Journey Behind a Spirited Cottage Installation

Entering a new phase in her life, my Client reinvented herself with only the personal elements of the style she loved...Cottage! After some quality time discussing and conceptualising the fresh look for which she was searching, we made two lists...hers and mine. While taking pride in, and finding it therapeutic to scour flea markets, antique sales, and online sites herself, she also realized she needed a professional to handle the carpentry, window treatments / custom pillows, furniture placement, hardwood floor refinishing, upholstery, and painting.
