Can I make you jealous?

Have you ever been to someone's home, and felt a little embarrassed by how much you adored it? That sense of coveting that you were certain the homeowner could see (well, maybe it was that distinct pea color of your pallor)?
If you haven't, well, you're either:
a) Not that into design
b) Not that observant or
c) A better person than me for being able to withstand feelings of envy!

As often happens, I stumbled upon a blog that has fulfilled my every need for great Before and After home remodeling pics, and with the homeowner's permission, I couldn't resist posting here for your enjoyment. Caution: You are about to have one of those green moments...

Grace is a home-grown southern Virginia gal who uprooted with her husband, young son, and pooch to California. In the course of LESS THAN 30 DAYS, her husband gutted and remodeled nearly their entire home to fit Grace's design aesthetic of beachy, classic, traditional. All the renovations were designed by Grace herself. I think you'll agree, girlfriend has a great eye!

The most recent reveal came from the master bath - here, a detail of the sconces she chose for the vanity area.
The infamous Before - builder standard vanity.
...And the glorious After! Besides gutting the entire area, replacing the single long vanity with His 'n Hers pedestal sinks, I'm thinking they opened up the roof to the gorgeous "Cali" sun with a large sunlight feature.
The glass tile set in a running (subway) pattern was used on the floor and in the shower/bath enclosure.
Polished nickel gooseneck faucet - be still, heart!
If THAT didn't quicken your pulse, take a peek at the kitchen.
Before: A closed-in space with standard and/or dated laminate cabinets, florescent light, and white appliances.
After: Aaaahhh! Now this jewel of a kitchen can breathe!
Gorgeous, Grace - absolutely gorgeous! The patina-finish pendants and rattan counter stools add just the right amount of casual beachy-ness that doesn't fall into the stereotypical.
Again, what's an amazing space without perfect plumbing and hardware?
Lastly, because I couldn't resist: son Harper's room (btw, he's the cutie hangin' out by the bed.) I'm thinking Grace was inspired by KWeartsler's childrens' room, with its library wall - I would LOVE to recreate that scene!
It doesn't scream nursery, or little boy, it just says FUN!

If you'd like to keep up with the rest of the renovation reveals, I'm sure Grace would love to have you at Grace Happens.
Thank you, Grace, for letting me live vicariously via your reno, and to drool just a bit!
