They have been popping up in all sorts of interiors including dining rooms, kitchens and even nursery rooms (like this adorable one above). I’m referring to the woven lighting trend and I’m loving it. From rattan to rope, cane to basket – the organic material gives a textured, earthy touch to any space.

I’ve been sourcing a few woven pendants and chandeliers that could work in our family room / great room area. Because I’ve selected brass lighting fixtures for the kitchen and dining space, I wanted something different for the the family room area. I’ve been eyeing woven options for a while and narrowed down some of my favorites for you today.

Reveal :: Modern Bathroom with Rove Concepts

This modern bathroom reveal is long overdue folks, but with the One Room Challenge for our foyer and master bathroom it got pushed aside. One of the first projects we tackled in our new fixer-upper home last year was the guest bathroom – mainly because of an active leak that needed to be addressed. Over the years, the bathroom had been updated here and there, but not in a good way. The blinds, contemporary vanity, plastic yellow tiles and glass mosaic tile work needed to go. In fact, the entire space needed to be gutted and it all had to go except the original tub. Take a look at the before images and you will understand.

We wanted the new bathroom to feel fresh, yet timeless; traditional, yet with a modern twist. The black hexagon cement tile flooring was selected first and the white subway tile contrasted with dark grout was a natural pairing. The window was painted a glossy black and dressed with a custom roman shade in a sharp black and white buffalo check fabric. A new smaller pedestal sink, chrome mirror and vanity lighting was also added for a clean look.

As you know, I love to mix styles and love modern touches. To complete the space I teamed up with Rove Concepts, a leader in mid-century modern reproduction furnishings and accessories. I appreciate their focus on quality, detail and use of the highest quality materials to deliver reflect the essence of minimalist design.

I love adding a stool or chair to a bathroom when space allows. Once the radiator under the window was removed, it seemed a lovely spot for seating. Rove Concepts’ Flag Halyard Ottoman was the perfect choice. This statement piece was inspired by Hans J. Wegner and features suspended flag line supported by a durable stainless steel frame. It also comes with a chic Australian long-haired sheepskin to drape over the top. Isn’t it divine?

You know how I like to incorporate live plants in every room and bathrooms are no exception. Rove Concepts’ Strapped Marble Vase caught my eye instantly as I knew it would look great in the space. It now houses a beautiful orchid. I adore the strap detail – it brings a little warmth to the space and coordinates with the ottoman nicely.

Keeping it simple and functional, I selected a black ceramic coffee cup to corral the toothbrushes. The cup’s finish is a combination of matte and glossy. A subtle, yet lovely detail.

I’m completely in love with this new bathroom. And a big thank you to Rove Concepts for helping me get it beautifully styled.

Our kitchen remodel is in full swing. Drywall is being hung and next flooring and cabinets will be installed. The process is in deed exciting, but at times seems to be at a snails pace. While I sit of the sidelines from the construction, I have been busy purchasing a laundry list of items that will make our kitchen unique, personal and of course functional.

One item that took some time to source was the kitchen faucet for a farm style sink. I was instantly attracted to a classic bridge style and in the end selected a gorgeous two handle widespread bridge faucet by Rohl (as seen in the image above). Here are a few that were short runners however…

Sorry for the radio silence, but our kitchen remodel has been consuming much of my time these days. I’ve made tons of decisions regarding cabinetry design, fixtures and finishes, but still have a few up in the air. For example, I still have yet to select the counter stools for an island. I’m torn on material and design. Should I pick up brass accents to echo the pendant lighting? Add a chinoiserie touch? or go with something classic? Here are a few that have made the short list. eeny, meeny, miny, mo…
