We completely renovated a 1980's outdated master bathroom (think metallic wallpaper) and created a tranquil space to escape my 3 boys! The post on my blog contains many of our sources.

I absolutely love this bathroom. And although I love the tub, I've decided against a
freestanding tub because I realize I will be on my hands and knees cleaning behind it when I'm in my older years. I've decided to do an alcove tub with decking on 3 sides. But this is beautiful, well done!
Though Spring is more than a month away the warmer weather we've had and the garden posts that have been popping up in the last week have me thinking it was a good time to post about
screened in/sun porches. Funny that before I get all the photos loaded it starts to snow! It's 41 degrees here, but it's snowing like crazy. Wasn't in the forecast either.
You may have noticed that my dear hubby has a finger bandaged in a couple of the pictures. Just a reminder to never ever stretch your arms to either side of you to hold wood in place while you're using a framing nailer. Or any nailer for that matter. The thing double shot and a humongous nail went straight through his finger, bone and all. Major ouch and a trip to an Omaha hospital emergency room. The nurse and female doctor had to call in a male doctor to remove it. Hubby watched. I didn't, but did take a photo of it with my cell phone without managing to look at it. Don't worry, I didn't post that picture.
We have a chevron wood wall in our family room. I have no idea what to do with it. Right now it is stained an orangeish brown color.... very dated and dark. Same thing with the fireplace,
the brick is dark red and just dated looking. What do you think? What would you do? We installed dark hardwood floors throughout the entire home and the walls in here are painted French Gray- a Blue/Gray. Help!! Here is a link to my pinterest board to kind of show my style and what I like: http://pinterest.com/ashopaholicmom/for-the-...
Anyone with ideas in this area for plants. Full sun, drought tolerant, low maint, favorite color purple. Should I raise the empty area in the front to place some annuals and perrennials. Thinking about purple coneflower, purple salvia, purplewave petunias.? Should I move the smaller shrubs Help! Please

One of those dwarf laceleaf maple trees would give you the burgandy color to accent all the
green. They only get a few feet tall and they weep down. I keep mine trimmed up underneath instead of letting it get out of control and weep to the ground. It's very attractive. And the branches would give you some winter interest after the leaves fall. Flowers will only give you color and interest part of the year.
