Tile Progress- Woodard

Happy Friday!!!! It’s a big day here in Houston- the Astros have won their very first World Series, which honestly could not have happened at a better time after dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey for the past few months. So cool to see how a single sporting event can change the mood and energy of a city. We thought about going down to the parade today, but decided that fighting for a spot with 500k of our closest friends wasn’t how we wanted to spend our Friday. Many of the schools even cancelled class today!! Crazy!!! BUT the good thing is I have now managed to carve out a few minutes to sit down and right this blog so another week doesn’t slip through my fingers without a blog post.

Last week I shared the last of the design plans for one of the spec houses I’m designing, and today I have some of the tile progress that’s happening.

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve already seen a little sneak peak of this, but the mini herringbone backsplash is up in the kitchen and I absolutely adore it. Everything is very neutral throughout the house, so this felt like the perfect place to add a little touch of character without going too taste specific. **Please excuse the sub-par iPhone pictures... professional ones soon to follow. 

On the fireplace, we’ve added a light-colored stacked stone, which is also being used on the exterior pillars. The stair treads + railings were just installed and have really transformed the look of the space.
While you don't typically put railing on both sides of the stairs, we had to on this bottom section because of it being open on the right side and because the top staircase railing had to be on the left side. It felt and looked strange to not have the railing be continuous. 
You can get a better feel for the size of the kitchen from this view, although you're missing the whole left side that has the sink + dishwasher. The island pendant lights will be going up soon! 

In the first-floor bathroom, we kept the basket weave tile as originally planned, but changed the shower wall tile to a beveled glass for a little more drama. The single light will look fantastic centered over the round black + brass mirror, which will be hung next week.

The tile work was just underway in the two secondary bathrooms upstairs, but we’re pleased with the countertops and lights so far.

The master bathroom is taking on the light, bright spa vibe we were going for. The marble hexagon floor + accent band in the shower compliment the countertops perfectly. The large subway tile has the slightest unevenness to the edge, giving it some added character. 

The vanities are split in the master bathroom.
On the right side is another sink + a lower makeup counter.
The wood floors are currently being installed (so happy I switched to a lighter color last minute) and the grout on the tile work is being finished up. 

Next week the cabinet + door hardware is being installed, as well as a few other punch list items, but we're getting so close to listing this beautiful home!!!
