Here’s looking at you, kid

This is definitely going in my inspiration folder for when we come to remodel the upstairs bathroom.  I suggested a life-size picture of me holding a tape measure to the Husband, but he didn’t think the wall would be big enough.  I’m not sure if he meant for me, or the tape measure…

Found via Vancouver interior designer Patricia Gray’s fab blog, this is the new men’s room at the Sofitel Hotel in Queenstown, New Zealand.

Check out Patricia’s wonderful interior design portfolio as well.  I love how she uses soft curves and different textures to make her clean modern lines seem comfortable and approachable.  Particularly loving this kitchen (under ‘South Granville’ in her portfolio), which is going straight into the inspiration folder for our small downstairs kitchen.  

It looks simple and high-end but it’s full of cool ideas and I suspect it was comparatively cheap (given the absence of expensive stone and granite). I like the two different colours cabinet colours – all white would have been too clinical and all brown would have been too dark.  I love the way that the white (Corian?) countertop continues down the side of the cabinets.  The cork (?) flooring warms everything up and is sustainable and comfortable to cook on.  And I love the use of glass splash backs and (mirrored?) cabinets to bring light to a small area.

And the funky image on the end wall is a masterstroke.

Packing again this morning as we’re off to the San Juans for another long weekend. (Instead of going away this summer we decided to spend lots of time exploring the Pacific Northwest).  Most excited as a new baby whale has been born to one of the resident whale pods so we’re going to see if we can find it.

    Hi
    thanks for posting these pictures of the “South Granville” kitchen I designed.
    Yes the countertops and waterfalls are Corian. The cabinets are Wengee wood. The floor is cork tiles and the backsplash and center over head cabinet doors are backpainted aluminum glass called Alu Glass. I also used this glass to surround the shower and when it is wet it turns into mirror. Very Cool.
    Enjoy your weekend in the beautiful San Juans!

    Hi
    Even Black Hat Marketers have a code,
    (although most of it is how to make Google cry and put your competition in the poor house)
    you can download it here for free … (27 page underground PDF)
    http://blackhat.1add.net
    And don’t worry, you can keep your wallet in your pants AND you don’t even have to opt in.
    Consider it a gift from my friend Howie Schwartz.
    It’s a blueprint on how he annihilates everything in his path when he decides to enter a niche.
    Better grab this now, because he said he’s only going to allow 100
    marketers who aren’t afraid of their own shadows to have it.

    Take care,
    Jhon
    PS After you read the PDF – make sure you check out the below as the live training is starting . . .

    I love that bathroom! That is amazing. I love reading hotel reviews. I need to read hotel news before I travel anywhere.
