THE ATRIUM


It is no where near selection time
but I can toy with thinking about it right?

This space is kind of odd
JUST LIKE I LIKE IT!

It will be the space that connects the original house to the 
renovated garage apartment turning master suite, and is only about
20 x 15 x 10

It will be 2 stories of glass and cedar
the art studio loft upstairs will have a turret and the office will be below the studio
there will be double doors that step out into the yard and patio and pool

I have put a drain in the center in case I want a 
Zen Garden with fountain
Butterfly Habitat
or 
Inside/Outside shower
:-)

so the floor must accommodate that 
and I do not want it to look new


tumbled marble?

I have white carpet and very dark handscraped wood 
in the other parts of the house

It's my chance for some of that blue color that I love and 
that will bring the color of the pool indoors!
My one chance to pop on this end of the house

but I love this shape and color and could have a nice blue rug

but I find myself loving
these Moroccon Mediterranean Casablanca tiles

I could polish the concrete and paint a mural

but I just keep thinking about these tiles!

I don't have a good vision for how something square is going to fit into this odd triangle
still thinking....
suggestions?

Love, love, LOVE the blue in the tiles! Perhaps I am influenced by my Dutch (blue) heritage?
Thank you for your "surprise" visit to my wee corner of the world to-day...it is always a delight to know that you popped by for a visit!
Most warmly,
Judy

Stained concrete and then you can do WHATEVER you please in that area! And that stuff can be dressed up for a party or put its work boots on splashing paints around in a frenzy of artistic orgasm. OMG did I say that out loud?! Well.....you know what I mean.

This is going to be a REALLY cool space.

Just wanted to stop by to thank you for all the great comments you've left. It's really hard for me to keep up with everyone but I'll try to stop by every now and then to catch up. I appreciate you taking the time to comment and just wanted to let you know that.
