We’re buying our first house, and with that comes the fun part of putting our personal stamp on it. Just for fun (and to keep Team Decorate/Renovate on track), I made mood boards for the rooms that will most set the tone for the house. The house was built in 1952, and we want to keep a bit of that mid-century charm. Wanna see?
The living room is bright and white and sunny. I’m thinking our two paintings will set the tone. I covet the California coffee table, but seriously doubt that will ever be an actual purchase. A new sofa along the lines of the one on the board will be in order though.
The kitchen is a big open blank canvas right now. It’s perfectly clean and serviceable, but I know it can be better. In a year or two when we we’ve had a chance to settle in to the house, this aqua and red, slightly retro feel is probably the direction we’ll want to go.
The real project is the downstairs bathroom. It’s a hot mess. My mom and I have been having lots of fun looking for renovation inspiration.
On Thursday she found a photo of the perfect sink. I made a drawing of how I think the bathroom is shaping up on the vanity side.
After too much internet browsing and searching for the correct terminology for this style sink, I have determined that it’s a drop in, apron style, and this particular one is probably the Dresslyn by American Standard. And yes, I do want that yellow (though I’d settle for gray or white)! There are several resources in Portland and not in Portland, and my mom already has a guy keeping an eye open, but in the mean time, if you have a sink like this and want to get rid of it — email me.
