A tiny washroom and spacious kitchen were both thoughtfully refreshed as part of the renovation of this "Craftsman- Victorian" house that was built in Virginia at the turn of the last century. Both rooms kept their historical character while becoming more fun and functional. The addition of bead board and a tiled backsplash enliven the diminutive water closet and provide moisture protection for the walls. I love the energizing hue of the deep gold wainscoting and how it picks up on the color of the cattail tiles over the classic wall mounted sink.
The homeowner sweetly commented, "Who ever thought a teeny tiny powder room could look so good?! We could not be happier with the outcome!" That is what I love to hear!
And I can say with certainty that it is much more fun to wash your hands when you have a little water scene to look at while you scrub up. Now on to the marvelous kitchen...Warm earth tones make up the palette in this room, so tree of life tiles in autumn glaze were selected for the backsplash to be interspersed with rectangular field tiles from another source. The tree tiles are each 6x6 inches in size. Here is a close up of the tiles before they were installed:
And here is a close up of one of them installed!
Really lovely job all around. Thank you again, A.R. for taking the time to send such lovely pictures of both of your projects, and for making my tiles a part of your lovely home! You were a delight to work with and I hope you enjoy your tiles for many happy healthy years to come.
