Guest Pooper Re-do

You may have seen some pictures on instagram of our gutted guest bathroom. Its a bathroom that we never really use, but when we have a new human in the house its gonna get constant use. Our 100 year old home was remodeled about ten years ago, during the housing boom and it was done very sloppily. You know that we already changed some of the flow of the house, and pimped our kitchen a little bit. But aside from that and some basic things like installing insulation we haven't done too much. (Well, we updated the facade, and created a deck off of the bedroom, so I guess I lie).

I thought I would show you my ideas that I have for the space, since I kind of like to decide things as I go. I chose 4" white tiles, to be laid in a brick pattern like this because it was like practically free.

My very favorite feature is the blue grout! I saw yellow grout somewhere recently and it really got my wheels spinning. I decided that since this bathroom has no tile accent colors, that I could kick in some  colored grout and it would be playful and fun! I chose Ocean Blue grout from Custom Grout. but of course that might change b/c I haven't actually seeeen it yet.

So, blue grout on the walls, and then very dark grey grout on the floor. I bought these same hex tiles. Also because of how cheap they were: like 3usd a square foot from Floor and Decor. I went to a fancy kitchen and bath place that wanted 13usd for the exact same tile per square foot. C'mon Son!

I had bought an Ikea vanity b/c I thought I had to sacrifice what I wanted for more storage. But then I realized screw it. I wanted a pedestal sink so I bought one, and returned the ikea sink/faucet. You know what? I have learned that I regret decisions that I make because I think its what I am supposed to do. Instead I have decided to do what I want and trust myself. I got a medicine cabinet to go over it. (I have no.freaking.idea why med. cabinets are so expensive. I really don't get it. )

I bought this faucet.

Yeah, I just bought all chrome hardware. I didn't really want to deal with trying to match finishes and all that crap. I like the brass look but its a bit too allovertheplace right now for my taste. 

PS. My dream shower curtain. I can't bring myself to spend this, but dude! Where else am I gonna be able to use this fabric? I am like yearning for it! I should probably use it somewhere when I don't need 3 yards of that shit. Dayum, that is expensive! The price has gone up at Just Scandinavian too :(

Tile is happening today! They assure me that the bathroom will be finished by Friday but I don't believe that! They will have to put back the pooper and the sink and all that noise. We are having a party for O's 40th on Saturday, and I suspect that our friends will be peeing all over the place in our bathroom. It will be like college again I guess. Why does everything have to happen all at once? There is never a convenient time to do a remodel at your house, its just a freaking mess! But its worth it for the end result. I am just dreaming of the day when it is all done, and clean and I get to just bask in the glory of many good decisions. Send me positive energy though cuz lordy I need to just be at the beach right now!

They Don't Have Any Proof

New painting in the store today! 48x60 "They Just Don't Have Any Proof." 

I had so much fun painting this, my friend Erin says its a perfect synthesis of my abstraction style and geometric style. Y'all know how much I love geometric, linear and graphic shapes. Sometimes I try to be restrained and just make clean shapes but then I can't control myself and I have to scribble or I will scream! Its a metaphor for life peeps. I just am having a lot of fun having this painting in the studio. I will be sad when she sells.

Ashley Westrich Wedding with my Wise Math painting

So like two years or so ago, a graphic designer named Ashley Westrich contacted because she wanted to use my Wise Math painting for her wedding invites. I said sure thang, she made super pretty invites and collateral for her super cute wedding, pictures were taken then New York Magazine Weddings picked it up, and now I am blogging about it. Circle of life friends. 

The rest of the wedding is super pretty too! Love her dress, and the table settings too. How cute are they!

I wanna go! pouty face.

Beautiful dress, looks like she chose the perfect silhouette for her shape and style. I can see from this pic that she chose the Wyeth Hotel to get ready, loooove that wall paper.

I officially need to get my mitts on a gold cake now! Also three piece suit, way to go Mr. husband. Also also, that bought has anemones in it: bonkers. Thank you Ashley for doing Wise Math proud, thank you for being such a great client, and for keeping up with me and showing me how your wedding turned out!

New Paintings in the store right now!

Real quick, before I forget, I am sending out a newsletter tomorrow am with some discount codes because I have new paintings and prints for you to enjoy.

Runk Pock, 48x48 mixed media on canvas.

The Other Olivia is finally up in the shop. You will notice that the price for the watercolor style paintings is higher than acrylic paintings. The reason for this is because it takes a hella long time to make these paintings, and a lot of space too. Just in case you were wondering.

Flying Man. This one should be called "Evolution of how to cover up a giant blue Penis". Cuz thats what happend.

Got some new prints in the shop too!
