A few weeks ago my brother-in-law asked me if I could take pictures of a couple bathrooms he just finished working on, he needed some good pictures of those projects and since he knows I keep on taking pictures on an almost daily basis, well, I guess that's why he asked me.
It was a bit nerve wracking, it's different when you do things for yourself than when you do work for somebody else. I made sure to pack everything I thought I needed, extra batteries for the camera, sd- cards, tripod, lights with extension cord just in case, and a few other things. You know... Better safe than sorry. ;)
It was a dark, rainy day, but I had to forget about using the extra light I brought. The bathrooms were tiny but adorable! They had a really good lighting plan, so that's what I used.
The owners have been renovating the whole house, trying to bring it to present times. Outside the bathroom, there is still wallpaper that needs to be removed.
The wall niche by the side of the vanity is such a great focal point besides serving as a storage or display solution.
The color palette is soothing and at the same time playful, perfect for a kid's bath.
However, the wave glass mosaic in the shower area is what gives this bathroom a big splash or energy.

The polished nickel fixtures with their stream lines complement the modern design in this bathroom.
The second bathroom, besides being on a smaller size than the previous one, had no natural light. However, it was equally beautiful.
From outside the door this is the view. Vanity and toilet on one side.
Here once again, the modern polished nickel fixtures are show stoppers.
I couldn't helped it. I had to turn it on!
Well, the wall tile is equally striking.

Both bathrooms had those angled walls, and I love how the tile was brought all the way up.
A place to store all the shower necessities was nicely done.
A corner bench and the gorgeous river rock flooring completes the shower area.
I took several close up pictures of the work done in these bathrooms, like in this last pic. Those are the small details that tell when a project is done by professionals. Perfect!
I'm not a photographer, I've been learning and still have a long way to go in this department. I'm happy with the results of this assignment. ;) I think this is one more of the many opportunities that blogging brings your way, who knows what's next.
Thanks for stopping by!
