BLACK + DECKER Big Finish Progress

Hey guys...

As you know, I'm participating in the BLACK + DECKER Big Finish initiative. I have selected our guest bathroom to attack with some changes, so that it finally feels finished to me. 

I checked with a designer friend of mine this morning, to get the name of a great stone yard, and hope to be able to go there today. Woo! (also I just checked with Jordan to make sure he's cool with me changing out the countertop. Thankfully, he's pretty easy going about all my design changes around here) I want to get something that looks like Cararra marble. Something lighter than the gray Cararra that's in the shower area, so that there is at least a little contrast. I also plan to add trim around the mirror, but I don't think that will be hard. 

I have been spending a little time this morning looking around for a cute rug. I feel a little stupid, because I bought a red Oriental rug for this space last year. It never felt quite right though, so I think I'll move yet somewhere else in the house. Just incase you forgot, here's what the space looks like now: 


Here are three rugs I'm considering:




Which one do you guys like best?! I like one and two, because they are both really similar to the inspiration photos that I am using for the redesign. Bright colors! I've got a thing for 'em. 

I like option three, just because it's weird. A little offbeat and a little weird, in the color choices. I think my favorite right now is 2. Tell me what you think -- I need to order one today... the BLACK + DECKER Big Finish is over on December 10! Yikes, I've got to get myself in line.

I also need to select fabric for a new shower curtain - that will be easy, I think. I will probably just make one myself. 

Anyway... wish me luck! And don't forget to let me know which rug you like. 


BLACK+DECKER has launched a movement to get all the unfinished home projects moving again. Join them for the opportunity to win $10,000 cash and products. Plus, they might put you and your finished project on a billboard right in the middle of Times Square.

    1. thanks daddio... might be needing your help again with this one. hehe.

  2. I like them all, but I'm kind of feeling #3 most. I have bold colors and patterns in my place, and I've been trying to calm things lately. I guess that's why I pick 3. :)

    1. i do love that one!!!! I actually decided on another one... that's not even listed here!! I will probably post about it tomorrow. I understand... I always go back and forth between COLOR and neutral.

    1. i know - i like the inconsistencies in that one!

  4. There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives. Information Information Information
