michigan + half painted walls

Emily Oster

Last night, we returned from a whole 10 day vacation in Michigan! The week plus flew by and this morning I am tiredly getting back into the swing of real life. For anyone who has ever been to Michigan in the mid to late summer, you know there is just no beating it (personal biased opinion of course)! We started our trip with a couple days all the way at the top of the mitten on Mullet Lake. We then headed south for a quick 18 hours in Harbor Springs/Petoskey before making our way down the west coast to the town of Pentwater. I finished the week outside of Detroit at my parent's house celebrating my sister's upcoming wedding while Jeff and Booker made there way home via Saugatuck. It was an incredible time spent on the lakes with family and friends - new and old - and I look forward to many more summer trips just like it. 

Returning from being away, it can be difficult to get right back into the blogging mode. I usually get started by scrolling Pinterest, catching up on my Blogroll and reflecting back on inspirational things I did, saw and thought about while on our trip. One thing that stood out to me from our trip was a particular bathroom - I know sort of strange but this is how my designer brain works. Set bathroom was in the amazingly delicious American Spoon Cafe in Petoskey. American Spoon is a Michigan preserve company that also has a cafe that serves up its up its yummy products alongside other local fare. Last Monday, we enjoyed breakfast there before getting on the road and I am going to say it was one of the best morning meals I have ever had.

But back to the bathroom - it was understated and simple with the main design element being a half painted taupe wall. I am not usually a fan of "paint treatments" but this totally worked and I am dreaming of how I could do the same thing in our bathroom. Check out these inspiration images.

penny tile

I love the look of penny tile. Its such a great material in that it is super classic but still lends itself to many different periods and styles. A personal favorite is when the tile is used with contrasting grout. My favorite color combination right now is gray tile with white grout although it is hard to choose just one color palette. I am hoping to use it somewhere in our house maybe as the floor in our new mud room or in a future bathroom renovation. Happy Wednesday!
