I love tile. I might even be a little obsessed with tile. So the fact that tile, even very bold tile, is making a comeback in the bathroom has me very excited. Lately I've been noticing an interesting trend in tiled bathrooms: bathrooms with tile on the ceiling. That, my friends, is commitment. Is this something you would do? Or is it all just a little too much? READ MORE »

Name: Sarah Priestap-Porter and Jeffrey Porter . Our land-mates are Arlo (rescue mutt) and Glaumur (Icelandic Horse) Location: Tunbridge, Vermont (Central Vermont, for y'all who have no idea where this is) Size: 1620 square feet Years Lived In: 1 year, owned When I started dating Jeff back in 2009, one of the first things he told me was how his dream was to build a house for his family some day. It was college, and the time when everyone talked about big dreams, so I never took it seriously. After all, he was a photography major with a little woodworking experience at the time, not some experienced builder. It wasn't until 2011 when we moved to Vermont and he began to apprentice with a timber-framer that I realized how real his dream may be. READ MORE »

This intriguing double L-shaped office was designed and built by eDEN Garden Rooms down the side of a home in Reigate. "Our client came to us with a vision to turn the space at the side of their home into a multi-functional office," says Mia Walmsley from eDEN. "The beautiful ceiling-to-wall windows help to punctuate the shape of the garden room, and coupling these with large bi-fold doors ensures that light streams into an otherwise potentially dark room. "As well as plenty of practical living and working space, we also included integrated storage at the far end of the garden room, which works neatly with the streamlined design, tucking away down the side of the main house. As you can see, although this project is built in relative proximity to this customer’s home, there is still plenty of access space around the garden room itself, which is accentuated by their large social patio area." ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Tuesday posts are sponsored by Garden Spaces , suppliers of contemporary garden buildings, offices, gyms and studios, many of which do not require planning
