So - I'm looking at tile options for the en-suite...

I like this ( option A ) flat white tile.

And - this ( option B ) beveled edge tile.

Tiles will be going up onto the wall behide the basins.

BUT - which option should I go for?

I'm also thinking that I want plain frameless mirrors, as in the image above?

Mirrors will be cut to size, same width as the basin? And - the same length as the wall lights below?

These are the wall lights I LOVE!

I'm thinking 2 for each basin? one on either side of the mirror? They measure 160cm in length! Which means they will fill the space in from the top of the basin to the picture rail above.

As the tiles are cold and hard in the way they look and feel and the wall lights are industrial in design, I'm also thinking that I may need to soften/add texture with ornate cornicing - picture below?

En - suite...

Even more glass jars...Just need stuff to fill them!

Glass bottles and wooden inlay boxes form Capri.

I'm now thinking that I want to tile the wall behide the basins?

White tiles with black grouting?

And - as we are heading upstairs to pay for the rug and vintage chest of draws, I SPY a lovely pair of...JUGS!

Jonathan's dressing room...

I'm going to have to stop leaving the house, I seem able to spend money anywhere and in places I least expect too!

Like on Sunday, we were working our way though a list of errands that needed doing one of which was hitting the pet store for dog food, next door to the pet store is a furniture store, it wasn't my intension to go in...

BUT - seeing as we where in the neighbour hood!

And to my surprise I found this...

And this...

Both of which where on SALE and will be heading to Jonathan's dressingroom.

Reception 3...

The 1st thing my Mother says to me when we get back from our holiday isn't welcome back, it's..."Get yourself into TKMaxx"

So - The following day...after the gym, we head into TKMaxx for a look!

And, came away with 3 chunky knit footstools...just like this green one

A golden gnome

3 large glass bell jars

Cushions from the Buckingham Palace gift shop

 Oh - and 2 white porcelain vases.


Before we left for Capri I asked my Mother not to KILL me hydrangea's or me kids...

One out of the 2 requests was successful!

SO - HAPPY to see me kids!!!
