And now for something completely different.

Our house is 23 years old. I seems like yesterday that we stood in the builder's showroom choosing these cabinets and fixtures. Everything has been looking tired lately so it seemed like the right time to renovate and update the bathroom.

I envisioned shifting from the neutral earth tones we have here towards a rich, luxurious and dramatic colour palette.

I found a grey floor that I loved and from there pulled in subway tile and mosaic tile in natural stone tones of grey, burnt red, wheat and clear glass.

The tub , sink and too are white ( bye, bye almond tub and sink) so the contrast will be dramatic.

Day one, the tub and tile came out and the new tub was set in. We're coming up to one full week without the tub but showing at the health club has worked for all of us so far.

Hopefully, tomorrow it'll be done!
