Welcome back to the house. Today I'm featuring Part 3 which is basically all the bedrooms and their bathrooms, and the "Ladies' Closet/Office".
When we first moved in, my husband and I shared a very large walk-in closet (not pictured) but it was still busting at the seams. We later added the Ikea cabinets on this Wall for extra storage. We originally Painted all the walls the chocolate brown color, but one Spring I needed a quieter, lighter color on at least one wall, so then we added the soft grey blue. The bookshelves are more of a grey brown than the chocolate walls.
Beyond the barn door and blue curtains used to be one large design studio/home office. I had layers of fabric books stacked on shelves. A few months ago, I decided to keep all my design samples, books , etc in a storage trailer in the back. (in hopes of having a commercial space one day). I stepped back from doing alot of residential "in house" work and started focusing more on EDesign. With EDesign, I do so much resourcing online and found I didn't need all the bulky samples in this home space. By taking out all the design studio extras, I was able to turn this space into my Dressing Room! The shelves are now concealed by white curtains where I have shelving for shoes, etc. and more Ikea closets. Now Steven gets the luxury of having his own closet, and I now have the separate dressing area/home office.
The Ladies Dressing Area/Home Office used to be the front porch. We enclosed it, then added a new front covered porch (visible through the windows).
In the Master Bathroom, we totally remodeled this space with Carrerra marble, new vanity, lighting, etc..
Extra large shower in Carerra marble with a rain water shower head and a regular shower head.
Sweet antique chandelier found at Round Top with it's smokey amethyst crystals.
Down the hallway, is another Powder Bath with wood walls. This room doesn't have a window so I lightened up the walls and painted the floor a fun high gloss paint. The vanity was found via Sundance catalog and love the cute small square sink. Space is an issue in this room, so the candle, towel holder , faucets and soap dispenser are all wall mounts.
Leading downstairs is the Play Area just off the two extra bedrooms. The Play Area is my Grandson's lil spot for hanging out. We have loads of fun stuff concealed in the bins and in the storage bench. The soft rug makes for cozy , on the floor, play time.
One bedroom is on the left, the other on the right of the Play Area.
In Luke's room, we originally had the shelves custom made for album covers. We later moved all the albums out to the garage/man cave. The shelves now are a display area for rocks and fossils. We had custom metal signs made for favorite different cities below the clocks. The large louvered shutters were painted black to match the wood windows painted black. I should've had the photographer take a pic of Luke's computer (white box), he built himself. The left wall of this box has a clear glass that shows all the lighted workings within the box. Pretty cool stuff.
Luke's bathroom on photo shoot day. Forgot a towel to hang :).
The bathroom is a Jack and Jill bathroom style. Each bedroom has their own sink but they share a shower/toilet area.
Below is the other bedroom.
Tomorrow I'll finally share the recent exterior pictures also. And later in the week, I'm excited to share pictures from the recent Lakeway project.
(Not sure WHY this post is showing a couple of font sizes and I don't know how to edit this goof. And this month, well you know, it's busy. I honestly don't have time to figure it out right now....so please bear with the look lol.)
Hope you'll stay tuned and enjoy this special season ,
