behind the glamor: a CA home + design "small space big style" showhouse update

the california home + design magazine "small space big style" showhouse opens to the public in 3 weeks, and this is the state of the bathroom i'm designing:


now if i hadn't done construction before, i'd probably be sobbing hysterically right now, and calling it "small space, big bummer", but honestly, whenever construction is involved, you've got make it ugly before you can make it pretty, so in reality, things are humming along just fine. my shiny new tile from walkon tile and specceramic is on site, the custom wallpaper i designed with black crow studios is being printed, plumbing fixtures from snyder diamond are en route and the warner brothers studio facilities cabinet and furniture shop is making me some special goodies, so we should be good to go on september 14th. oh, don't get me wrong- it'll be a nailbiter right to the finish, but hey, that's how construction projects roll, and somehow, through the dust and the chaos, beauty always emerges...

i must admit, i got a tad worried onsite today today after seeing how far my second floor design-mate, Molly Luetkemeyer, has come with her rocking mezzanine office/lounge, but molly patiently talked me down. ok, she really didn't talk me down, but she did make me feel less stressed by making me laugh and laugh and laugh. it's a good thing her mezzanine office/lounge and my mezzanine bathroom aren't middle school projects or our teacher totally would have seperated us for talking too much with our neighbor... love that molly loot!
molly loot getting inspired. remember when pinning meant this, not something you did on the internets?
so remember, the showhouse opens to the public on september 14th- be sure to join the cool kids up on the second floor, where it's gonna get loud!

So random....worked with Molly on TLC's "Clean Sweep" waaaaay back in the day, she's hysterical! And one hell of a design talent. Love seeing her here!
