Post tile post

June 8, 2011

Unbelievably, I managed a whole day in the office today but had this overwhelming urge to check out the house. So I picked up the old boy from work at 6pm and we headed off.

Could not believe our eyes when we rounded the corner and saw ALL of the lights on. Our fantastic tilers were still on the job finishing off the last of the floor tiles and cleaning the place up. 3 days - pretty good effort.

Our laundry;

Bathroom;

Now that it's done, I'm REALLY happy about taking the floor tile up over the bath.  Love the straight lines of it all & the white blinds and bath will tone it all down.

Ensuite;



And last but not least, the Powder Room;


I can't really describe this feeling of seeing these colours come together after picking them nearly a year ago.  I know they're not going to be to everyone's taste, but we LOVE it LOVE it LOVE it.

It has come together nicely. Must have been great to see the tiler still working :-)

Yipee for tilers....I always love the tiles continuing over the bath and what about that powder room and ensuite splashback 'special'!!

Love the cute wall lights in the powder room.

Next colour selection worry, I don't think so.....

Love it!

Its so exciting (and nerve wracking!) seeing it all come together after so long isn't it?

Getting close now!!

Just have the splashback to stress out about Deb. Everything else should be fine. Besides, there's not a lot left. Carpet = same as tiles. Timber floor - well you can't take offense at something that neutral. Oh - the render. It could be too too orange?????

Couldn't believe our luck LouNeen. What were the chances of finding them still working (and the house open) at 7pm on a freezing cold night??

Reinsey said...

I don't know what it is Shayne. Exciting, terrifying, overwhelming, surreal.
Now that you're in, does it feel real, or do you still expect to be locked out??

You can't help yourself, can you, I know exactly how you feel, neighbourhood watch told me my roof trusses have been delivered.

Wasn't planning on going down tomorrow, as heaps of other things to do, but now I will be even if just to get a pic. as Scott the framer wont be back till Friday.

Love, love, love the feature tiles.

Don't worry, be happy!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ha-ha, you're really funny and enjoyable to read Reinsey.

Janine K said...

Looks even better in the flesh, your home is beautiful, and I don't think your paint is too yellow at all. It will all tone down once the flooring goes in.

Wow the floor tiles look great Reinsey. We have been waiting for these pics ('cause we have made the same floor tile selections)....hehehe
