Bathroom Beauties

 I hope you all had a beautiful break and have started the year with new aspirations.A new year always seems like the right time to start a new project or be inspired to do something that you really wanted to do last year but did not have the time to do.I am personally very excited to embrace 2011 and fulfil my goals for this year.I hope you all fulfil your too.I wanted to start the year by showing you 2 bathrooms that have recently been completed in a gorgeous old queenslander right next door.The encaustic tiles work so well in this restored 1920s home.Moorish Night and Grey and White reproduction tiles have been used on the floors.I just viewed them and felt so inspired and joyous.I hope you like them too.Have a beautiful year....
