Design Distraction

I was hoping to be able to share photos of the new loveliness in my living room after my more furniture mojo post last week, but things are still up in the air.  It has been hard to write about interiors this week because my guts want this new furniture SO much.  Tonight, I am trying to distract myself with something completely unrelated…. bathrooms.  Here are some photos from my favorites file while I try and get my head straight.

I love bathrooms that incorporate furniture. The black cabinet creates a great focal point.

The textures and light in this room are amazing.

The layout of this bathroom is why it is in my favorites file. I like the idea of my own space and being able to get ready in the same room as my husband without constantly bumping into one another.

The wallpaper and the pops of color are great in this room, but I saved it because of the cool old fashioned shower pan.

This bathroom has it all, a gorgeous shower, beautiful stone tile work, furniture styled vanities.

Hopefully, next week I will have some fun posts about my own house. Keep that mojo coming!


About sanctuaryhome

The Sanctuary Home blog was created in May 2009 to augment my interior design business, Jamie Foley Interiors. Below is the design philosophy that guides my business and this blog. A beautiful house isn’t a home unless it speaks to its occupants and fits their lifestyle in appropriate and unique ways. I believe that design can be approached in two ways. The first is from the gut, what feels right. The second is from a logical methodical perspective. I design using the second approach. I feel that having a reason why a piece is selected, having similar elements in the room or throughout the home makes it feel unified even if the similarities are not obvious to the casual observer. It makes a home feel special and contemplative. Building the interior of a home is a process. I create a plan for investment pieces that will last a lifetime, filling in with less expensive, less important pieces that can be replaced when they wear out or look dated with additional investment pieces or of the moment trendy items that update the home. Using vintage or antique pieces with new grounds a home. If everything in a home is new, it feels like a model home, it has no soul. If you use all old pieces, if feels like you live in a garage sale. The beauty is in the mix. Creating timeless interiors involves using pieces from all design styles. It gives the home a layered look and allows a home to look as if the pieces have been acquired over time. Using furniture from all one style or period makes a home look fussy and intimidating. I look forward to working with clients with all budgets and design aesthetics to create a home that special to their family. I encourage clients to express their individuality throughout the entire design process, this ensures your home fits your needs and will delight you every time you walk through the door.

    That second photo is one of my all-time favorites. I totally think I could pull that off in my master bath, don’t you? 😉
