bathroom vanities

Grey-vanities
Now that I started day dreaming about new bathroom vanities, I can't stop myself from doing research.

Mid-city-neighborhood
Some people would say designating "mid-city" as a neighborhood is silly.  To me, it makes perfect sense.  It's mid-way between Logan Circle and U St. Corridor on 14th St, NW and it has a distinct personality.  It's chock full of interesting, independent stores and restaurants that have anchored the area long before it became a popular destination.

riveting rooms

Grey bathroom2
Last week, a friend decided to redo her powder room.  Immediately, I was intrigued and thought to myself "maybe I should redo our bathrooms too".  I've already replaced the mirrors and light fixtures.  Next, I could replace our vanities.  I hate them but they provide a lot of storage.  The idea of replacing them or painting them or SOMETHING led to a marathon browsing session.  Although this isn't exactly what I want, Ikea has a similar vanity for $300.  Not that I want an Ikea vanity, but see what I mean?  Ideas are percolating.

Chocolate-cake

Chocolate cake with cream cheese icing is my favorite cake.  I made one over the weekend for a friends birthday and let me tell you, it was divine!  I added a tiny bit of coffee to this version and it added a new layer of flavor.

Emerald-green
Emerald green…it's pantone's color of the year and one of my favorite colors.  I love how it can be sophisticated or playful in decor.  Happy President's Day!

wth?

Sometimes, listing photos make you scratch your head and say "wth?"  A few of my favorites below:

Blurry-garage-photo

why yes, a blurry picture of a garage spot does entice me to go see this unit.

Messy-bedroom

an unmade bed and clutter everywhere makes this bedroom really appealing.

Crazy-wallpaper

crazy wallpaper is exactly what I want in my new dining room.
