Bye Domino!

Posted on | August 27, 2008 | 9 Comments

Today is my last day at Domino. I am moving up to Marblehead permanently to work on the house. Leaving New York was stressful decision I went back and forth on for the past year. In the end the experience of renovating an old house and starting a store seem to match up more with my lifestyle. I will miss New York and all the great people I meet working at House & Garden and Domino. Starting after Labor Day I will be blogging full time about the house renovation and new products and finds. See you next week!


Bathroom Tile Inspiration

Posted on | August 15, 2008 | 6 Comments

Penny Round Tiles in celadon from Ann Sacks, apartmenttherapy.com.

One of first projects on the new house is re-doing one of three bathrooms. I’ve been pulling together a little bathroom inspiration to maybe get an idea of what kind of tile we might want to use. We definitely want something classic in white or carrera marble. The house is 250 years old so we don’t want to get to modern. I love hexs, penny rounds, basketweave, and subway tiles. But which one to choose? The bathroom is on the first floor and maybe a potential rental apartment. So I don’t want to go to fancy. Check out some of my ideas above and below.

Small hexs, apartmenttherapy.com.
