We just dealt with a week of sanding, staining and sealing the floors. I thought that we would have to be out of the house for that, but we were able to avoid most of the dust and the odor by long office days. We are not supposed to walk on the floor, but we soon discovered that if we waited unti...

Our backsplash tiles arrived! I chose handmade ceramic tiles. If I had known that it would take six weeks to make these, I probably wouldn’t have ordered them. Nevertheless, the tile setters began today. They cut and lay the tile to fit, gluing it on. Then they will return in two days to grout it...

We chose our under-cabinet lighting today. Our contractor had factored in the cost with fluorescent lights. I don’t like the color of that light, and even in my ancient kitchen I had installed halogen lights under the cabinets. I like LOTS of light in my kitchen. Our experience in educating ourse...

The painters were here ALL DAY, en masse. Five painters with drop cloths and ladders, all scrambling around. It was a circus. Once everyone left, Jimmy and I went into the den and opened the newly installed exterior doors to the side yard. The deep grey is sophisticated and cozy, but not bright e...

Thankfully, my husband and I have very similar taste in our preferred color palettes. However, as I have mentioned previously, my husband has opinions on every aspect of our interior and exterior home design. So… I will explain. Our home is a sweet, stucco, Mediterranean Bungalow. When we first p...

Here in the San Francisco Bay Area there are many buyers paying cash to buy a home in order to win in multiple offer situations in this very competitive market.  Paying cash is a great strategy to buy the home. The question the buyer must consider after closing escrow is "does it make sense to ge...

The half bath has been the most difficult aspect of this project. It is small, so all the components have to work together well. I have found it difficult to imagine the end product with no existing components. So, I can’t decide what the mirror should look like without having the sink in place. ...

Our painting crew has been here for the past several days. They are working on prepping the walls and trim for paint. Of course, we have so much new trim work, and all of it fashioned to replicate the original, but there is plenty of old wood also. So, another round of dust, dust, dust as they sa...

Molding, Woodwork, Floor Tiles, Finishes and Door Knobs! They have been working on the wood trim for the past few days.

Lions and tigers and drawer pulls, oh my! Okay, now I see why it's smart to hire a professional! Do these decisions about coordination ever end? I have been dreaming of un-lacquered brass drawer pulls. I love the old-timey look, I love that you don't see them that much, and I love that they will...
