Photo Reveal: Project Classic Trad

I am beyond thrilled to reveal the photos from Project Classic Trad!! This was such a great project to be a part of, with amazing clients and an overall style that is right up my alley… a blend of traditional with modern. Today, I’m showing the living room and first floor bathroom. I couldn’t be happier to be working with Sarah Heppell on this project. She brought the rooms to life through her pictures and showed a sun filled space on a very cloudy day. That takes talent!! Here is the photo overload… enjoy!!

{I love that we upholstered my client’s favorite wing chair in new fabrics. Tonic Living has the best fabric options to choose from and a local upholsterer created this magic. I call it business in the front and party in the back!}

Before and After: Project Classic Living {The Bathroom}

We are now at the final day of the before and after series from Project Classic Living. To catch up on all of the previous posts for this home design, visit HERE. I love this house and working with these clients. We have other future projects in the works, so this is not the end of this gorgeous home tour. My clients had already been working with a contractor for the bathroom and brought me in for the finishing touches and to bounce off ideas for the overall design aesthetic. I actually created a pinterest board for this design and you can view it HERE for comparison between inspiration and final result. We discussed a couple of different flooring options and patterns and they ultimately decided on the hexagon tiles, which work so well with the home’s traditional charm and character. There is a dramatic difference between the before and after, since plumbing was moved and the space was completely gutted. The after pictures are by the talented Sarah Heppell. Enjoy!





















After Photos by Sarah Heppell

I hope you enjoyed the home tour and the before and after series! It was so much fun for me to look back at where we began and then how we finished. And this bathroom, even with its deeper and longer vanity, looks bigger now than before! I love when that happens. We added function and the appearance of more square footage. Win, win!!


Project Classic Living Reveal {The Nursery and Bathroom}

Showing the reveals from Project Classic Living has been such a blast for me this week! I want to give a huge thank you to my clients for allowing Sarah and I to come into the home and photograph the spaces. It means the world to me to have this project shown in its best light. The nursery was where it all began! My clients found me through a Houzz search and the rest is history! We first met about a year and a half ago and I am so happy to have met such a wonderful family! Thank you to Sarah Heppell again, for making this home shine into a light, bright space on such a cloudy day. Of course, the rest of the week had beautiful blue skies! But it didn’t matter- Sarah made it appear as if it was the sunniest of days. :) Have fun viewing the nursery, followed by the hallway bathroom!














And now the hallway bathroom…










So there you have it… Project Classic Living! We will be working together in some more spaces in their home, so stay tuned. I will definitely show more of these rooms in the future, including the before images. The contractor did an amazing job with this bathroom. Plumbing was relocated and it is a completely different space. I hope you enjoyed the reveals this week. This is the most I have posted in one week, in a long time. 😉

Bathroom E-Design Reveal – Before & After!!

I am so excited to show you this before and after today! A while back, a wonderful e-design client, who I have worked with on some rooms before, contacted me about putting some love back into their downstairs half bathroom. She wanted a more serene, spa like vibe and was definitely ready for a change.


Short of changing the vanity mirror and pedestal sink, they pretty much replaced everything else! My clients couldn’t wait to take the tile off the walls and floor. They were also looking to change the wall color and bring a softer, more modern look to the space. Here is the design plan I came up with…

The Design Plan

I knew that the new lighter wall color, stenciled top walls, wainscoted lower walls and new marble flooring were going to be the game changers. Everything else was the icing on the cake. Are you ready to see the afters?!?


Can you believe it’s the same space? My clients worked extremely hard to make this bathroom reflect their style. They did the work themselves and did a phenomenal job!! The best compliment on Instagram was a reader asking if that was wallpaper. It’s a stencil and you can purchase it HERE, in small. Thank you to my clients for allowing me to share their hard work. Bravo to you both!!

My Dream Bathroom with Decor Planet

If you have been a reader of my blog for a while, you may have seen my posts about wanting to renovate our bathroom. This is a project we hope to tackle within the next few years and my mind is constantly spinning with how I would like it to look! I have always loved a white bathroom, just like I love white cabinetry in a kitchen. I imagine loads of whites, grays and soft blues in this bathroom. I can just picture subway tile, chrome fixtures, glass knobs and a true spa like feel. When I was recently introduced to Decor Planet, a site that has everything you would need for a bathroom renovation, I was hooked! You can truly get luxury style at a discount with this site and if you live in the NYC area, you can pop in and see the choices for yourself in one of their showrooms. Since I am always putting together virtual design boards with e-design, I thought it would be fun to create a dream bathroom with items from Decor Planet!

My Dream Bathroom ……………………………………… 

I could spend the day in this bathroom, if it were mine! I added a rug and some decor pieces to finish the space, but the main renovation pieces are all from Decor Planet! To view the pieces from the site that are on my board, click on the words below the design board.

There are endless possibilities with this site. Not only can you find loads of accessories to choose from for your bathroom, you can also read their blog for how to’s and advice on tackling projects yourself! I am now more excited than ever to get this renovation started.

Make sure to stop by Decor Planet and tell me your favorite bathroom accessory!

Our Master Bathroom Plans

With our basement renovation behind us, what kind of blogger would I be if I didn’t start thinking about the next big project?? Ever since we moved into our home {almost 8 years ago}, we have wanted to make changes to our master bathroom. We have made some small adjustments so far… replacing the lighting, changing out the faucets and painting the walls. But I do have more plans for this space! When I think about a dream bathroom, I am picturing a modern style vanity, pretty lighting, light blue/gray wall color, chrome, subway tile, white stone and loads of texture. Basically, a modern/traditional style bathroom that feels like you are on vacation! Here are some great inspiration pictures I have found that bring this dream to a reality…

Bathroom Inspiration

Do you get where I’m headed with my plan?? Now this renovation probably won’t happen for some time, but it’s good to get a jump start on the ideas and all of the planning. Modern Bathroom is a great site to start with! They have any bathroom furniture style you could possible imagine and I have found my favorite vanity. The Avanity Windsor in White is the perfect combination of modern and traditional, which is just what I like. It is also very similar in style to the vanity in the first inspiration picture! I like where this renovation is going, even if it’s only in my head for now. :)
