As an interior designer, I am always looking for interesting, creative design that captures a sense of adventure but still functions well in a home environment.

Being a foodie and wine enthusiast, Portland is a mecca for wonderful restaurants. The restaurant’s design is just as important as the food being presented. I especially love going into restaurant bathrooms to see if the design was an after thought OR a delightful extension of the eatery’s overall ambiance.

I am often asking my design friends, “Did you see the bathroom at the new restaurant that just opened?”

There are wonderful creative and exciting ideas to be discovered and used in your own home!

So I will be sharing with you some of my – I SPY – great design – YES in bathrooms!

If you SPY a great bathroom – pass it on!

Motel Modero has modern twist and sleek finishes.

*artwork always makes a statement

* undermount sinks are so seamless, I love the back light on the back splash

*super shiny kleenex box sparkles with the glass mosaic tiles

*observe the  corners of the room and see how all the different materials relate to one another…I also love dark painted ceilings – so much drama looming overhead!
