Retro Renovation TV is up and running, and here is my first video. Actually, it is the first in a three-part series, spotlighting my blue bathroom renovation. In this first video, I talk about basic design decisions that I made. In video #2 (tomorrow), I will talk about some features that turned out great and which I like a lot. And in video #3 (Friday), I will talk about things I’d change if I had it to do over again. Overall, though, I was very happy with the way this bathroom turned out. And the video, too. The video is not perfect – but it’s a start. And hey, my intern/director/editor John Gervasi and I did it all ourselves. The media empire grows. All that said, this is the first time we’ve tried this. So there’s some things to improve. Like, I gotta figure out how to add music… and there are a few mis-spokens. Like: that’s not a lav faucet, it’s an 8″ spread, etc. For example: Depending on your internet service, it might take some time to load the video. Let me know if there are any issues, and we’ll see what we need to do to make this all go smoothly … because I love doing videos, they are such a great tool to talk about design dilemmas and solutions. 🙂
Vintage nursery rhyme wallpaper — now reproduced by Bradbury & Bradbury
Old Mother Hubbard's cupboard surely had shelves and drawers wallpapered in whimsical vintage wallpaper -- just like one of these four new/old designs from Bradbury & Bradbury Art Wallpaper now being reproduced based on original document designs in their archives.
