TUB AND CHANDY

VAN WICKLEN DESIGN
 One of my projects right now is renovating my client's master bathroom.  The lighting is one of the issues we're updating.  I had recommended a chandelier over the master tub area.  However, the husband wasn't so sure about how a chandy would look in a  bathroom, over a tub.  However, the wife loves the idea.

I thought a few inspiration photos might help .....

My clients already have can lights in the ceiling, so the chandelier isn't a must.  However, they just add a decorative touch to such a focal point as the tub.

Some cities prohibit the installation of a chandelier over a tub, so be sure to check the building codes in your area.

I'll share pictures of their remodel soon.  In the meantime I'll share with you the inspiration photo used for their bathroom....

This beautiful bathroom was originally designed by the talented Carla Aston  from the  Woodlands, north of Houston.

So other than bathroom remodels , care to know what else I've been up to?  

We've been still tweeking the new house we moved into last May.  And I'm hoping to start taking pictures this Spring to share with you.  Today we've been slaving away on the outdoors because the weather here is beauuuuutiful .  Hallelujah for sunshine!  In Texas, in the blink of an eye, the weather can change...so we're enjoying today.

My large scale projects at the moment are  2 different homes that are still being built and can't wait to share pictures when they're ready later this summer.    Right now I can only give you a sneak peek.

One is a "Texas Farmhouse mixed with rustic industrial modern details",


(Huge ceilings will have gorgeous beams in this living room)

(Fabulous black steel exterior on the windows)


 and the other is a "rustic French meets Louisiana" style home.  Here's a sneak peek at some elements I love in this project:
(fabulous interior courtyard with fireplace and spa/fountain)

(front entry leading into the courtyard with beautiful wood columns )
(LOVE the herringbone brick pattern in the courtyard)


Both very unique and great house designs that I"m excited to share with you.





 Stick around for the reveal..... I'm so excited to see both of these come to fruition!  (you say sometimes I forget to show those "reveal" photos??  No , I don't... promise!  Sometimes it just takes awhile to get that right photo op).  Take for instance the  lake cottage  Fish Camp  I worked on....I haven't been back to take pictures .  But, I'll be going there this June to finally take  photos of the completed project, and can't wait to share this beautiful and charming place.

If you have the time,  let  me know your thoughts, do you like a chandy over the tub?  Always LOVE hearing from you!

Have a great day,
