About me:
As a hobby I enjoy sewing so have always had a passion for Fashion and Interior Design. I am 64+ and counting and counting in age and if there is a project I can do myself I will try it but will never hesitate to seek the expert advice and/or service of a professional when needed. I do try to keep up with the times but as I am more apt to think-outside-of-the-box and have an INTJ Personality, I do not necessarily follow trends. 
My favorite style:
Transitional 
My next house project:
I am currently upgrading my home which is actually a compromise between my husband and myself as I would prefer to downsize whereas .... he does not. (That's what you do folks when you've been married as long we have been.) There are a total of sixteen spaces to do which will entail new flooring, countertops, replacement of three bathrooms etc. etc. The list goes on, so if there is anyone who wishes to donate some products to the cause, please feel free to do so. I am a very appreciative soul. ºÜº

Doesn't Kohler offer their own version of a washlet? Combo toilet and bidet?

@curlieq - Yes, here is the Kohler bidet seat link: http://www.us.kohler.com/us/C3-Toilet-Seat-with-Bidet-Functionality/content/CNT2400393.htm
They also have an amazing bidet toilet if you can stomach the $6k price tag. We have seen it and it is pretty amazing. It takes "clean" to a whole new level as you never need to touch it. It also can play your music for you : ) Here is the Kohler Numi link: http://www.us.kohler.com/us/Numi-Comfort-Height-one-piece-elongated-1.28-gpf-toilet-with-integrated-bidet-technology-(less-remote)/productDetail/Styles-of-Toilets/949936.htm?brandId=430036&skuId=949924&categoryId=429984&hash=id%3Dfilters%26startIndex%3D20%26scrollTop%3D547

Interesting to read this when I've just posted a design dilemma where one of the first pieces of advice was -- paint out the blue/gray walls. I'd really rather change every other element in the room.

@cltsig: Could you possibly share the colour you used as am looking for a colour in the gray family and find your choice very appealing. Also, does it have much of a sheen/gloss to it? Thank you!

The company that makes the marine quality paint that was used to cover my laminate cabinets is AWL.
the stuff is amazing if applied properly and that means sprayed on in shop and on site where uprights etc. can't be removed. I don't know what prep was used (probably some serious sanding?) but the final result is an incredible euro looking, tough as nails lacquer finish. Stands to reason as this product is used to paint yachts. AKZO NOBEL....North American supplier: East Water St. Waukegan Illinois 60085 TEL: 847-599-6212, FAX: 847-599-6209 Australia: Unit E54 Gold Coast City Marina 76 Waterway Dr. Coomera Queensland 4209 Australia. TEL: 61.7.5573.9655, FAX:61.7.5573.9677 Europe: Bannerlaan 54 2280 Grobbendonk Belgium. TEL: 32.14.25.7770 FAX: 32.14.23.0880. this is not something that you can just paint on but if you have the money to invest in getting someone to do a do a proper job you will NOT be disappointed in the final product. My laminate cabinets went from dark brown to off white and they're virtually perfect.
