Dura Supreme - stop showing off (esp pic 1)! Every time I see that pic, I so want to incorporate pieces somewhere in my house. It's too bad you're so far from FL

I love my cute little powder room in the library (gets almost no use). It's dark and rich and shimmery and very elegant.
One of my favorite Houzz pics is from 'Ann Aacks tile bathroom - Velvet & Linen' I love how the picture in that powder room brings it to a different level.

As for floor length mirrors in powder rooms (I guess to increase visual size), my very stylish friend has a powder room with one - behind the toilet. Now, for me as a woman, not so bad, but it makes me think every time of how uncomfortable I would be if I was a guy and watching myself pee - in full defined, living color. I imagine it was there when she moved in.

John David Edison here is a pat on the back, great job. Matarozzi Pelsinger, my favorite for color and texture, thank you for sharing. Buckingham interior I love the tile. LuAnn Development the color and texture are great and I like the fun idea of the disco-ball light, I think I would giggle everytime I saw it. Daher Interior design that carbon-gray grass cloth is beautiful, but not in the bathroom. Fads come and go and some should not be reborn again; like gold & brass fixtures, at best they look cheap. Lets just stick to silver or maybe come out with colored ones like red, black, blue, green, orange, pink..... I don't like the dark colors; however, the plus is that noone will be tying the room up putting on or adjusting their make-up cause they won't be able to see themselves. Maybe the dark ones are for men only; but how would they read in there? Hmmmmm

A very intriguing home. I kind of feel like they threw all of these ideas at it to see what would stick without an attempt to edit them. Kind of like Vegas itself - a bit over-the-top. However, many wonderful elements to go over, appreciate again, and assign to idea books.

My first impression was that your garage was too square, so I love the picture Pamela Bateman posted with the curved top garage doors & trim. Can you add some of the roof support/beam looking things (sorry don't know what they're called) under the eaves like in Madson Design's cabin drawing above? Also if you can make the roof line of the portico & dormer a little more droopy/curvy like the curved roof on the corner?

I also love the hanging roses & a nice picket fence would be beautiful! Make sure the walk to the front door has some curve to it & its made from different sized stones & lined with flowers. And by all means add a garden gate, arch, or arbor with hanging vines.

Came across this today while browsing at HGTV Gardens site. For those whose pocketbook is smaller than their home/garden dreams (like me!), maybe a little hobbit hole (add trees, vines, ferns), below. The blurb says suitable for sleepovers, tho' maybe just little kids:
"Wooden Wonders’ hobbit holes turn backyards into whimsical wonderlands. The brand-new playhouse version Woodshire, produced in Unity, Maine, is an enclosed space ideal for summer sleepovers and imagination-filled play dates, from $2,390 at www.wooden-wonders.com

A friend with a good sense of humor gave my parents this. I always thought it was in bad taste, but when we closed down their house, I couldn't part with it! Now it is in my guest bath.

Jim Hederman - Cabinets can be installed either way. I've always done it the way you have. Test fit and level toe kicks, then put in the floor, then trim and re-install toe kicks.
It seems to me flooring is replaced more often than cabinets. And you aren't paying for square footage of flooring you'll never see. Flooring that you have to put holes through to mount the base cabinets. It does inhibit changing the shape of the kitchen if remodeling though, because then you have to replace the floor.

Don't know if y'all are following the hilarious and heated Houzz discussion about whether to put a TV over the fireplace...? This design gets my vote for a nice and easy solution. Copy states the large graphic over the fireplace was chosen to cover the ubiquitous builders' TV hole. Good one!

Yes, by all means, safety bars. And if not now, at least the blocking for them to be added later. In my 'Your new house' portfolio I plan to pass on, I have visually recorded every improvement we have done. Down to the studs pictures of blocking, electrical runs, plumbing, HVAC ducting, floor joist directions, types of underlayments under the hardwood and tile upgrades, insulation R factors and brands..... In short, every thing I wish had been passed on to me. Oh, and owners manuals of all appliances currently in the house. With their date of purchase and all warranty paperwork.
