Happy Thanksgiving & Welcome Back!

Happy Thanksgiving!!! There are not enough words in the world to express my gratitude and thanks for all the wonderful people & good fortune in my life. I hope you all have enjoyed the long weekend and were able to spend some time with your loved ones.

First of all... I'm back! Sorry, I took a little hiatus there. Working a full time job and acting as the general contractor while building a new home chewed up every waking moment of my life. But the house is near completion so I finally have some time to blog again!

Slowly but surely I'll take you on a tour of my new home. To start, I'll begin with the powder room.

When I begin a design I always start with an inspiring photo and work my way backwards. There were two powder rooms that caught my eye...

Next I like to identify what exactly it is that I am drawn to. The key elements were the following:

  1. Chair Rail
  2. Blue-Gray & Creamy-White
  3. Silver details 
  4. Black & White Photography 

From there, I begin my own inspiration board and start shopping! 
Here is what I came up with: 

chair rail, faucet, benjamin moore
1. Paint Colour: BM Coventry Gray   2. BM - Gray Mist   3. Light Fixture: Canarm Alexa
4. Faucet: Delta Dryden  5. Mirror: West Elm

Just to give you a little sneak peak of the progress it went from this.. 

To this! 

This week the powder room will be finished. Stay tuned!

Bye for now,

Emily Grace
