I guess you like the wrong things then...
Srs question: I hate drywall. I'm looking for non-drywall options for our bedroom/bath addition. I like monolithic surfaces. I have some ideas, but I suspect that some of you will have suggestions I haven't considered. Thoughts?
Stone, teak, cedar, mahogany...
Had a friend who covered K and hall in corian. I liked it.
Matt's going to make fun of you if you don't.
Memories ... When I did the very first remodel eons back in San Francisco, we expanded the loft mezzanine level into a bigger bedroom/ bathroom. The wall between bedroom and bath was translucent cobalt blue panels, framed by a metal frame. It sounds very 90's/ 00's - and it likely is.
But it looked very cool as a) the shade of cobalt blue was fantastic and subtly illuminated in the eve with the light in the bathroom, 2) all the sink pluming was done inside the blue panels (One to the bedroom, one to the bathroom with a minimal long sink in front of it). The plumber did the tubes/ plumbing in a rather artistic and highly symmetric way so that added to it's charm and design.
I was in my late 20's so then I thought it was very cool. Unsure about it today though. There you go, talking about aging designs and preferences ... or aging in general ...
Apparently I've been on a bench building binge.
First; new toys
Next, bench. This is going to be a saw bench, so while I'm making it seating height the actual purpose is to saw things on it.
As usual, doing everything by hand.
Onyx lit from behind or large slab stone.
I don't dislike Danish modern. I just don't like period looks. The stuff Baum is talking about is stylistically so close to mid century that it is indistinguishable to the uninitiated but it is far more interesting simply because it has been enabled by technology and the time and sense it took to edit and refine. It isn't going to necessarily be more interesting in twenty years, but it is now.
It looks like you guys are thinking the same things that I've been thinking. I was hoping one of you might be thinking more affordably...
I like something about her...
You should see the electrical outlets we are using.
Please do share.
For a drywall installation, I like these:
We have those in sonoma. In sf we are using trufig which seems like a better, more versatile product.
Not as pretty as the Bocci ones, but I like these.
