It’s that time again folks. Show us where you live Friday over at Kelly’s Korner. I had to skip last week because I no longer have an office. Instead we have a nursery. I have a small cramped corner in the family room where I get to put the laptop. Don’t be jealous.
When we were shopping for a house, the number one thing on my list was a great master bathroom. I drove the real estate agent nuts because I refused to compromise. She became acquaninted rather quickly with Buffy when she told me I might have to compromise. For the readers new to Confessions of a Semi-Domesticated Mama, Buffy is my inner diva. She’s kind of a bitch. Anyhoo.
The house we bought was the very last house we toured. We walked through more than 40 homes in 2 days. Finally, I found it. The holy grail of master bathrooms. It was as if God opened up heaven and shone down a big light on the bathroom of my dreams. Even Matt was impressed and pretty much all he requires in a bathroom is a toilet and a shower. The rest is just gravy, according to him.
I knew the minute I walked into the house that I was looking at my future home. It was completely 100% remodeled with upgraded everything. It even had a built in hot tub on the huge back deck. I wanted this house. It all hinged on the master bathroom. I was afraid to look. I cautiously peeked and I swear to you, I heard angels singing. The light of God shone down upon the bathroom. Matt says it was the skylight, but I know it was God rewarding me for not killing the real estate bitch who had tried to talk me into buying an inferior home with a builder grade bathroom…as if! I know…I’m a bathroom snob. So be it, I’m okay with that.
The bathroom has imported Italian travertene tiles, a dual sink marble vanity that was totally gorgeous framed by 2 large amazing mirrors. Now the tub, oh the tub…I was in love. The surround was done in complementing Italian travertene tiles, the tub itself was a super deep marble soaking tub that the owners had ordered specially because of the thermo doo hickey layer on the bottom that keeps the temperature the same for the entire time you’re in the bathtub. OH MY GRACIOUS, what a marvelous invention. So if you’re in the tub for 20 minutes or 2 hours- the temp of the water remains the same the entire time. I told you that God was shining down upon this bathroom, didn’t I? One of my most favorite ways to relax and de-stress is to take a long, hot bubble bath with a great book and a nice glass of wine. Ahhh…..
There are a few things that we are going to eventually change though. I want to tile the shower and get rid of the horrible 80’s gold framed door in favor of a seamless glass one. I also want to change out the existing shower head to a rain shower head and either re-stain or replace the vanity cabinets. I’m also planning to replace the little light over the tub with a hanging chandelier. Eventually. It’s on the very long To Do list, the one that makes Matt twitch when I show it to him.
Here is my master bathroom:
I love my bath. These are the only three pictures that I have on this computer. I wish I could show you more. I would also love to show you the other 2 bathrooms in the house but….well, to be honest one is the kids bathroom. No matter how often I clean, it always seems to look like this:
