Bath Tub



                                         {Via SPI Design}


Designer's Notes


SPI commissioned this sculptural solid stone, oversized tub in France. Weighing over three tons, the tub had to be lowered into the bathroom with a crane via the skylight since it would not fit through the bathroom door.




Hammerschmidt contemporary master bathroom

Designer's Notes

For this master bathroom remodel, the entire bathroom is demolished. A wall dividing the space is lowered to open the plan and allow natural light into the previously closed-off vanity area. All finishes and fixtures are updated, including high-end, back-painted glass tile, green onyx countertops and a pebble floor.


Hammerschmidt sleek contemporary bathroom tub

Designer's Notes

This sleek bathroom is set apart in its careful detailing. Convenient niches are tiled to compliment the wall color. The custom vanity's flat-panel doors are edged in stainless steel to protect the doors and add a subtle, sophisticated accent to the rich wenge wood, and the floating vanity feels even more ethereal due to being light from underneath. Sleek chrome fixtures and hardware continue the sleek lines of the spaces even in the smallest details.

Parisian Hotels

My daughter has inspired me to re-do her bedroom with a Parisian theme so I have been looking at pictures of different places in Paris for ideas.  I just fell in love with the fronts of these hotels.  It looks like a heavenly place and is now on the top of our travel list.

white wood floors

I have been running around the house trying to figure out what I should change next, add paint to, get rid of, move to another room etc and then it hit me...the floors!  I absolutely love these white hard wood floors.  It's really NOT happening in my home, my husband looked at me like I had completely lost my mind, but I can dream.  How beautiful they would be in my daughter's room or in the hardly used living room.  If my house was just 10 years older I could pull it off... Until then I'll just have to admire these floors via pictures.

Happy Monday...blue glass

I absolutely love blue glass, especially vases. There's something so fresh and vibrating about cobalt blue.  I remember one of my favorite sparkling waters was in a beautiful cobalt blue glass bottle.
