Recently I had the opportunity to do more work for people who have been clients of mine for the past 7 years. I helped them with their first condo at Maple Leaf Square in Toronto:
and then was contracted to do their second one at The Pinnacle:
This time I was asked to repaint the main living area and master bedroom/closet since it had been 7 years and it was time for a change. I chose Benjamin Moore’s Quicksand for the main are and Castke Gate for the bedroom.
The next part of the project involved removing the wall to wall carpet in the master bedroom and closet which was badly worn. We discussed buying more of the hardwood that was throughout the rest of the unit and carrying that into the bedroom and closet.
In the discussion, the idea of tiling the area came up, which they seemed to really like. I agreed to doing the tile as long as we picked a tile that would be elegant and warm and not look like bathroom tile. I had never tiled a bedroom before, so I was a bit apprehensive, but thought, hey, why not? We chose a beautiful gloss 12X24 tile which would be laid in an offset “brick” pattern.
It was a fairly big job as we had to move out all the furniture out and disassemble the closet organizing units so they could also be moved out. Then once the tiling was all done, everything had to be moved back in and re-assemled.
A lot of work but in the end, I love how it all turned out:
