A little over a year ago I decided to add a master bath remodel to our list of home projects before welcoming baby #4! Quite a few people told me it was a very silly thing to do pregnant since I would lose the use of our primary bath for months and possibly not have it finished by the time our baby arrived. Not to mention pregnancy is already enough, why add a remodel on top of it? But I told them all the same thing... I'd rather do it pregnant than with a newborn! 

The biggest change we made was turning the side wall of the shower into a half wall to open up the room visually and let natural light into the shower. It also added symmetry (and you can never go wrong with symmetry) by framing the bath. I opted for classic box molding instead of more tile on the front of the bath for a softer look. I love it!

It was absolute bliss having a sparkly new bath to soak in during my labor at home. I took my first bath with little baby Violet while the sunset caught the brass and sent little rainbows all over the walls... a memory I treasure. 💛

I love marble and always will. My preference is marble with lots of inky veins but Isaac likes it a little more subtle so we met in the middle with this beautiful Mont Blanc. We found a pair of matching slabs and used one for the tub surround and the other for the two countertops. I had new door and drawer fronts made for the cabinets and painted everything to match in Clare Snow Day

For a room that sees quite a lot of the mundane parts of life, this project has left me gloriously excited to shower and brush my teeth! Let the bubble baths begin!

Hello lovelies, I hope you have all been well! After a little break from sharing on here, my creativity is waking up and wanting to come out and play again! I'm ready to be creative; take pictures, plan trips, host parties, make things, bake things, sew things...! I know I owe you all a (very much overdue) kitchen makeover reveal and I will get to that soon, but first let's catch up. 

It's been just over a year since we became a party of 6! Our family feels complete now. At mealtimes every seat is filled with a squirming, happy little girl. I look in the rearview mirror of the car and there they are - the four daughters I was always supposed to have. I feel like I've been waiting for this moment ever since I was a little girl playing house with my dolls. It feels too good to be true!

The girls are flourishing. Olive and Rosie love school and I'm completely blown away by their reading, writing, and drawing abilities. Madeline is picking up so much just by listening to them. Naturally, I think they are the best and brightest children I have ever met! I'd like to put together a coffee table book of the their drawings. They make me tremendously happy! 

Since finishing our kitchen and bath renovations we are taking a break from big projects and just enjoying our home. I keep a few small decorating projects going on the side purely for enjoyment and Isaac happily obliges that little passion of mine. Speaking of Isaac, he is thriving! His work environment and schedule changed recently as part of a very exciting merger and we are thrilled! Family dinners are back in rotation and I'm already planning spring evenings on the deck now that we have our main man home before sundown. 

I love my days with the girls. Becoming a mother brought out the best parts of me (and shined a light on the rough bits too, I'll add!), and I'm so grateful to get up every morning and do what I love most! What an incredible gift getting to play a part in shaping the hearts and minds of these precious girls. I love my job! 

Look forward to sharing more with you soon!

xx Christine
