Before and After Master Bath




Welcome to Carol Beck Home, the blog for Carol Beck Interiors and all my home related interests.  It's been over a year since my last post, and I am sooo glad to be back! 

Today, I'm sharing a recently completed master bathroom remodel.  Everything in this bathroom changed except the oversized gray spa tub.  What a challenge!  But, I think it all worked out.  Let's see where it began, and where it ended up.

Before...




I made just a few changes...







The counter top, mirror, lighting all changed too...




The above is now a bit more relaxing, I think...




The oversized blue-gray spa tub wasn't being replaced, so the challenge was to make this look a whole lot better...




After some TLC...




Have you ever photographed a bathroom?  Getting the lighting to show what it really looks like is not my strong suit.  But I tell you, I have the most patient, wonderful clients, who let me in on a Sunday morning to take these shots.  And I thank them!!  I hope you feel a bit inspired.

Now for a few more to wrap it up...








And their sweet cat jumped right in front of my lens when I started.  How sweet is this baby?




Thanks for dropping by and checking out my latest project.  I will be posting again from time to time, and I invite you to come back.  My goal is to inspire you in all things home.  If you've been following for a while, you know I've had a few blogs, trying to figure out what works best.  I think I've finally found my blog home here, at Carol Beck Home.

Talk to you soon,
Carol
PS  I'm working on adding subscription options, social media links, etc.  For now, it's only email.  If I waited until it was done the way I wanted, I'd never post! You know, it's that life/time thing...

Vintage Meets Modern for the Table

Modern meets vintage, with a plate from Target and 19th century silver and mother of pearl serving pieces. 


These pieces and several others are headed to the shop (if I can bring myself to part with them).  Entertaining with style matters, in my book.  What better way to make your guest feel like a million?  Stay tuned for the listings...

Before and After Family Room

My client's family room is almost complete, with only one pillow and a small table left to deliver.  But I thought you might enjoy a quick look at this before and after.  I have done nearly the entire house for this client (Carol Beck Interiors), and what a joy it has been to do something a little out of the box -- bringing a flavor of eclectic Southwest to a New England home.

Here is where we started this past June.  The only elements staying in the space were the new orange 6 Wilson pillows ;-) the artwork on the wall, and the decorative plates on the fireplace.  The window treatments also stayed, as I had done them a few years ago as a starting point for the change to come.

Before...




And the After...




The room isn't perfectly styled in this after, but you get the idea.  When I deliver the table, I'll take a few more angles.

For those of you don't know, I think it bears mentioning that 6 Wilson is my Etsy shop (soon to be a dot com), an offshoot of my business, Carol Beck Interiors.  I confess I am not good about showing my work or even much of my own projects at home, but I'm going to try to make time to change that!  Stay tuned.

Hope you all are happy and warm out there, especially my snow covered compatriots!!
