Yes. Another of our ideas is to revamp the bathroom in bright pastel-colored tiles, with black basins and tub with bronzed fixtures. We're also going to redo the wraparound in the shower, tiling over it. We haven't decided yet what color to do those tiles in, bone or black, or even some other color like a pale orange or salmon-pink. We do know that we're going to set a mosaic into the tiled wraparound wall, either of a large decorative fish like a Japanese koi (I've worked up some designs for that already), or of a single stem of a flower, such as an iris.

After that, we'll start on the kitchen.

Black tiles would be pretty, but what a pain to keep clean.

Btw, it sounds like a cheery bathroom, Sandy.

Thanks, that the way we intend it: we want it to be a space where you can visually enjoy taking your shower rather than staring at a blank expanse of white. The shower doors already have nice decals on them with a kind of frosted fancy-window design. Those may go in the trash too, as not being quite in the spirit of the new look. Probably we'll replace them with a subdued stained-glass effect.

The tentative plans for the livingroom are even more fun - or crazy, as you prefer. Were thinking of using artificials to transform one entire wall of the livingroom and a good part of the ceiling, into a sort of "untamed jungle" look. The centerpiece would be a single artificial tree trunk going up the wall (made of either a mock-up of the real thing, or created by tying twists of artificial vines, stems, and leaf-and-flower-bearing lengths onto a wire frame, with branches fanning out across the ceiling. At the base of the trunk would be more leafy vines, flowers, and smaller decorative trees and shrubs, spread out along the wall and extending perhaps 2 feet into the room, all of which we'd "contain" within an arc of some sort of fencing, be it white picket or black ironwork.

And on the facing wall of the stairwell landing going up to the second story, I'll paint a sort of European seaside village scene, so that it looks as if you're walking up the stairs and right into a picturesque coastal village.

Sounds interesting, but also sounds like a good bit of work.

Take pics and pop them in here when you're done so we may see. Cheesy

It may be another year before it's finally done. Lots of things on the plate right now.
