Master Bath Design Plan

There is still time to enter to win the Pair of Designer Trellis Pillow Cushion Covers giveaway. I will announce the winner this Friday.

I joined Inspire Me Heather's Project Blogging a couple of weeks ago. The goal is to gather anonymous critique and suggestions for your blog. Here is one of the comments Heather forwarded me:

"I thought her blog was absolutely beautiful. Very readable. Nice sized photos. Good-looking sidebar. The only negative I saw was that she rarely posts. If a blogger doesn't post at least 2-3 times per week, I lose interest because I feel like the "relationship" I have with that blogger has been interrupted. Just my personal feeling!"

And it hit the nail right on the head! I started blogging in May 2008 for fun, and never felt the need to commit to the frequency of posts. But, over time the blogging grows on me, and I truly love it provides me with an outlet for creative thinking, writing, sharing and gathering feedback on design projects. In short, writing and reading blogs makes me...happy! So, one of my 2012's resolutions is to blog more often, say 2-3-posts-per-week type of often. Let see how long I can keep up. :-)

Now getting into the subject this post: I've started to plan our master bathroom renovation slated for March/April timeframe. If you've been reading my blog for a while, you will know how much I love the mood board, and here's another one. I find this exercise helps me visualize how the room might look like when different elements pooled together. It also helps organize the list of things I will need to buy (and for this room, it's a lo-ong list!).
Source (clockwise from the top): Bryant sconces, Restoration Hardware (RH) mirror and vanity, Sarah Richardson's Jetstream SR19 Para paint, Schumacher Hothouse in Mineral fabric (cost me an arm and a leg) and Windsor Smith Pelagos in Mist for roman shades, Eames walnut stool, Acri-tec freestanding tub from HomeDepot, Floor-mount tub faucet and rain shower faucet yet to decide where to buy from, Crystal Ball pendant from Union Lighting, Towel bar and other hardware from Rona, RH Cartright wall cabinet, Carrara tiles yet to decide where to buy from.
Do you like the mood board? Is there anything you would suggest changing/improving?

Before I go about buying pretty things, I need to first make sure our contractor would approve the new layout. It involves knocking down a wall, removing a tub and its deck, relocating vent and toilet. This is the current layout of our bathroom...what was the builder thinking when they put the shower door right behind the door? Yes, they bumped into each other every frigging time we get in and out of the shower! And the massive tub deck is a joke...not only could we not use that space, it also quickly became such an eye sore.

This is what I will show to our contractor, and hopefully they will tell me everything is doable. Fingers crossed.
To end my post with something exciting, I will be changing the layout and look of my blog, hopefully soon! :-)
