I’m thinking of putting up a disclaimer such as “this blog contains nothing but house remodeling ramblings -Â continue readingÂ if somewhat interested”, or maybe sign up on Houseblogs.net or something, ya know?
Sooo, with that said…
The drywall guy is here today, nailing away like crazy. Rosie and I are in here, and try as I might, I keep straying away from client work, and browsing around remodeling web sites. The subject matter lately are sites with light fixturesÂ and kitchen tiles for backsplash ideas. This California tile maker, Jeffrey Court,Â does some of the prettiest backsplash arrangements I’ve seen so far. Gorgeous! Take a look for yourself. As usual, picking out something is another difficult decision. It’s all about the decisions, yes?
Currently I’m leaning towards something along these lines – those small topaz glass ‘dots’ are amazing to me. I can imagine how they would look on a larger area and in the light of the morning sun… yum, what a sight to behold with my first cup o’ coffee of the day, ya think?
For the lighting in the kitchen, including the dining room chandelier, my first concept would be to have the main ceiling light and the pendants, in a light glass shade with oil-rubbed bronze as the finish, then a Tiffany style chandelier in the dining room with a similar bronze finish. Of course there are a kazillion variations of all the above as well as whether I want the arrangements reversed. The only thing about having the Tiffany style in the pendant lightsÂ and the main kitchen ceiling light, is that I think that would look too “busy” in the kitchen – between the counter top, and the flooring… ya, too much I think.
ANYway, ’tis the latest meanderings for this Monday. I leave you with a photo from one of my Flickr groups,Â Hewn & Hammered. This guy’s Craftsman house has to be one of the most spectacular examples of an Arts and Crafts style bungalow I have ever seen. Check out this picture of his dining room. Isn’t it beaUtiful?
Okee doke then, c’yall later!
