About Kate: I believe great photography is as timeless and as unique as you are. It's part art and part photojournalism and I would describe my style as casual, thoughtful, warm, and elegant. 
I thrive on capturing real laughs and real love.

Our Bathroom

I love our bathroom! A nice bathroom in a rental is hard to find, my friends! The bathtub is deep and luxurious, the windows are the coolest in the land, and there is a great nook for plants. Nice paint, recessed lighting, and lots of storage are other plusses.

To decorate, I photocopied a few favorite images from a book with photos from the early 1900s and framed them in inexpensive Ikea frames. WIth the humidity of a bathroom, I didn't want to put up anything fancy that could get ruined. This is a great way to display art and keeps with the tailored look of our vintage-modern bathroom. (I know vintage-modern is an oxymoron, but I'm using the term anyway. If you've got a better term, I'm all ears.)

One nice thing about renting is you find out things you love or hate in a house. We will never ever ever have white tile anywhere in our home! It's impossible to clean without bleaching the crap out of it! And after you bleach it, it stays white for about 11 seconds. Needless to say, I took this photo 10 seconds after cleaning the bathroom. Another thing we'll never have is cabinets with little ledges. Holy hell, they're hard to clean.

That is a super nice bathroom! And I am with you on the white tile - I have it in both bathrooms AND the kitchen in my new place in Oxford. I can't tell you how much I hate it - I sweep, mop, take the dog for a walk, and then there's dirt all over it again. Be glad it isn't in your kitchen. I swear, white linoleum was easier to keep clean!
