Downstairs Bathroom Update

I thought it was time to take a few new photos of our bathrooms. This post will just be about the downstairs bathroom, look out for a post about the upstairs bathroom soon!

Even though our renovation was over a year ago, things are still not perfect, but the renovation is done and it’s generally pretty, I just keep fussing over accessories (although I’ll like fuss about that stuff my whole life haha). Also, the fact that I REALLY want to replace the light fixture. We put in a cheap Ikea fixture as soon as the reno was done, it was meant to be replaced eventually, but I just haven’t found the right fixture for the space. Check out the transformation below, it’s pretty awesome too look back on it, I can’t believe the walls used to be mustard yellow and the floors were blue! Also, the closet is the major change for us, sliding doors and shelves inside!

Oh and if you missed the previous posts about this bathroom check them out here and here.

Where the Wild Things Are.

This was a book near and dear to my heart throughout my childhood and all the way into my adult life.

I just wanted to take a moment and thank the man that illustrated such beautiful stories and changed the way children’s literature was created.

Holt Renfrew: Valentine’s Day Window Display

Thanks Holt Renfrew for having such an open minded and beautiful window display for 2011 Valentine’s Day.

There were several love scenes  in each window along the street, but this one stood out the most to me.

I especially love the cupid on the left, shooting love arrows, as well as the giant heart, which is made from vintage valentine cards.

Retro Japanese Cars are the Future

It’s true, Japanese cars are stylish, small, fuel efficient, affordable, eye catching…the list could go on and on.

There’s two cars I’m specifically in love with.

The Nissan Figaro

The Nissan Pao

Both of these cars were created in the late 80’s and come in the most amazing colours. Their price range is anywhere from $4,000 – $14,000 depending on their condition.

In conclusion, I must own one or both of these cars someday.

Amazing, i’ve apparently had this wordpress account since 2007, but have only wanted to really get into in the past week or so. I’ve been using wordpress in my office, blogging for the company. http://www.cowieandfox.com/blog but now i’m thinking I need to get my act together and start blogging for myself! I’ve decided to take down my online portfolio for a while and try this whole social media thing. I’ll keep everyone in touch with what i’m doing via Twitter, blogging and who knows what else…

For now i’m off to figure out how to customize this thing!

Until next time.
