Project by: Maura
Location: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
We recently renovated our bathroom, which took five weeks from demo to completion. In the months prior, I used a Pinterest board to collect ideas and refine what we wanted in the space. In the beginning it was all soapstone sinks, but as time passed, we evolved towards the elements that more readily fit our home and limited budget.
I acted as our designer. I sourced every element and conveyed our plans to our contractor, which, as an opinionated design dilettante, was much more work intensive than I anticipated. I learned a lot about the roles of the contractor and a designer in the process. There were a lot of meetings that took place in the hallway before my coffee even finished brewing (why are contractors all ready to start their day so early?). In the end, though, we got exactly what we wanted and more than we had hoped for.
