MILDE green meadows suite


A local Contractor recommended me to his clients that were preparing to remodel their master bath and bedroom and needed help selecting all of the finishes and coming up with a plan so he and his crew could put together a bid and start the project.


The clients couldn’t wait to get rid of their yellow walls, they wanted brighter/additional lighting and they really liked the look of the natural travertine stone tile in the Picasso color.

The Client:

Two retired doctors, one from education and one from dentistry. They’ve agreed to keep the house (as a central point) and travel around the world visiting family, friends while seeing the sights.

What We Love:

•     The ombre tile layout in the shower. We wanted to incorporate some of the colors from the B&F Travertine- Picasso stone tile floor and tub surround, inside the shower, by installing Daltile- Sky Bridge in Brown, Beige and Off-White.

•    The painted vanities. The floorplan wasn’t going to change, the cabinets were in great shape and painted them would save time and money. A local painter, removed them, painted them, reinstalled them; new hardware pulls were selected, purchased and installed, while the Cambria- Dover countertops were being fabricated.  

•    The sconces. The crisp, rich, bronze color of the sconces matches the Delta- Addison plumbing fixtures and the glass atop the sconces matches the ombre effect we created with the shower wall tiles.

What We Did:

I met with the clients to discuss what they wanted to achieve and the direction they wanted to head for the different finishes. They liked the layout of the bathroom and bedroom, but they really wanted a fresh look and needed more lighting. Knowing the colors they liked and the fact they liked the look of natural stone; I took some travertine samples to their house along with a few coordinating tile options for the shower, roman tub backsplash, paint color options for the walls and the vanity cabinets, coordinating quartz samples and pictures of optional lighting and plumbing fixtures for the couple to narrow down. All of the initial decisions were pretty much wrapped up in the second meeting, except for the lighting fixtures, which we looked at a couple additional options, but ended up circling back around when it was all said and done. I put a finish schedule, aka cheat sheet, together for the contractor to order off of and we used this as a tool to stay on the same page, a detailed tile layout was drawn to scale for the client to approve and for the installer to go by. Making sure the clients felt comfortable with what we were doing and taking this task off of the contractor’s list of this to do were my main goals.
