Fun Friday ~ Before and After

I thought it would be fun to come full circle this week and see before and after pictures of this powder room. This is in the home of the client that I spoke about in my Monday blog. She loves the green and orange mix and has for years. Nicolette did a blog on copper a while back and I commented that I am using a copper sink vessel in a project. I said I would take some pictures. Here they are ~ with my little Canon. When Bob comes, my professional photographer, I am sure he will know how to shoot a powder room with two big mirrors and perhaps use a wide angle lens so you may see more of the room at one time. I on the other hand was a bit challenged. I am even in some of the shots ~ mirrors ~ what can I say.

First, before shots. This is before we did anything at all....

When we painted the public spaces, we painted the powder room the lovely pale green we used in the family and sun rooms. I took more pictures as we were getting ready to design it....

We added a beautiful vanity with storage and copper sink vessel, chrome fixtures and accessories, the lovely aluminum vases (still awaiting their sprigs), large scale art and mirrors (one full length & one for the vanity both custom framed in copper), and a fabulous pendent (there was no ceiling fixture previously), and an area rug atop their beautiful hardwood floor. After.....

I actually took these pictures today. Just a few more touches and the powder room will be done. We started discussing the design for her dining room ~ I am excited!

Happy weekend!


  1. I love that light fixture. It's amazing what a transformation a small space can go through. What's the care for the cooper sink .. will it tarnish over time?

  2. You know I meant copper .. not cooper ;-)

  3. Yes my dear, I know ~ cooper means copper. The sink won't tarnish over time. It will gain a lovely patina. Mild soap and water is all you need to clean it. If one enjoys the shiny copper, a cleaner to remove the patina may be used.

  4. Awesome!! I love the scale of the mirror. Where do you get those soap dispensers? Kristin
