The Tracks of my Tears

Oh how I'd love this! Then there'd be no more hip & shoulders with MOTH as we both try & clean our fangs over our one remaining totally inadequate bathroom sink at night.

This wide, sweeping space leading from the bedroom into the bathroom is totally awesome.

The small dressing table space is perfect & the floor-to-ceiling glass windows at the end of the room just bring the outdoors straight into the room. And don't even get me started on all that wardrobe space!

The use of this milky glass adds great interest to the room.

How good does the tub look encased in glass!

Yep, you guessed it, another bathroom post! Although it was a joy to peek into the Bathroom from Hell when I got home from work yesterday & see that progress has been made. Russell the Plumber had spent the afternoon on his belly in the dirt in the tiny space under the concrete floor organising all the pipework & I can see new fittings - hooray!

What's not to love here, everything is divine. The Owners are European & asked the architects to totally rework their entire Master Bedroom/Ensuite Bathroom/Dressing Room space - how jolly sensible of them! The bedroom was moved into the former bath & dressing area and the larger bedroom space was then transformed into a combined bathroom and dressing area.

A glass bathing area was created (including basins, bath and shower) as a free standing structure standing within the larger dressing and wardrobe area, at work I'd being calling that a Co-Axial System! All the surfaces of the bathing area (I just love that term!) — doors, walls, bath surround and vanity countertops — were clad in glass to allow light to create a spectacular environment for a soak in the tub!

This whole renovation is so gorgeous, if it was mine I'd never want to leave! MOTH would be sliding my meals & mail in under the door. It's the weekend, enjoy all the treats that come with it.


  1. A bit spectacular Miss Millie. How do you come across these gorgeous places!???Oh I feel for Russell the plumber. He can join my poor builders lacky who is currently under our house waist deep in mud.... digging... while I weep. Thank you (and thank you caring MOTH)for your comment following our 'natural disaster' here in Qld. It's so nice to know that every time it rains, someone is thinking of 'The House That A-M Built, That Washed Down The Hill'. A-M xx

  2. These are gorgeous! The master bath at WM is in dire need of a makeover. sigh.

  3. I'm with you Millie, why would you ever want to leave?

  14. i started reading your blog a few months ago and enjoy hearing of your tales. not sure if i've ever commented before or not. just thought i'd share what happened halfway across the world a few nights ago. i woke up in the middle of the night, repeating "M-0-T-H, M-O-T-H, M-O-T-H...'s MAN OF THE HOUSE!!" then i slept soundly. pam

  15. I quite like the image of meals and things passed under doors...why, you would never want to leave.
    Just gorgeous. But cleaning all those windows -oh don't get me started!


And none will hear the postman's knock
Without a quickening of the heart.
