June 30, 2015

Our Tadelakt bathroom | Renovations. Interior Design Project by Karine Candice Kong Read on www.karinecandicekong.comOne of the projects I most proud of out of all the things we achieved with our house renovations (loft conversion, new kitchen, the resin floor) is our Tadelakt bathroom. Its a material I have been wanted to use for years because it looks and feels like polished concrete and the results achieved really exceeded my expectations.  READ MORE...

LOFT CONVERSION PART 1 | RENOVATIONS

March 16, 2015

Bathroom in loft conversion, Home of Karine Kong, Founder of www.bodieandfou.com READ ON >> www.karinecandicekong.com

When we started our major renovations in our London home, the first big project we tackled was the loft conversion to create a double-bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Once this new room was finished, we pretty much moved in and camped there for about 7 months while the builders were working their way down through the second floor to create a new room where the terrace was, then the first floor where we raised the floorboards and finally to the ground floor where we replaced the tiles and floorboards by a resin floor and fitted a new kitchen. You can see more photos on Instagram under #bodieandfourenovations.

5 SLEEK, MODERN BATHROOMS & MIRRORS

August 12, 2014

Now that our loft conversion is finished and I found this very cool bathroom mirror, I’m tackling our master bathroom, which is going to be white, minimalist with a resin floor.
For the basin, I’ve ordered a beautiful basin designed by Antonio Lupi similar to this one.

Taps: I’m looking at Vola or the taps designed by Antonio Lupi (subject to costs)
Bathroom mirror:  I haven’t yet decided but the Pebble Grey bathroom mirrors may well do the trick as they have an interesting collection of cabinet mirrors. I just need to work out if our bathroom mirror can be fitted into the wall rather than wall-mounted as Elisabeth did for her bathroom.
Door onto the balcony: I think Steve is looking at something like this on a smaller scale.
In the meantime, here are a few looks I really love…

I really like the design of this wall-mounted storage unit that combines style and practicality. It’s a feature in itself and looks fabulous and striking. If you are after an industrial feel, check out this wall-mounted clothes rack that would great against metro tiles.

This one, designed by Antonio Lupi, stole my heart…everything is so neat, nicely displayed and a far cry from the 80s bathroom I had to cope with for the past three years ;-) The space is narrow, yet everything looks very balanced and I suspect the basin is in the recess on the right hand side.

You can’t go wrong with white marble especially when the basin is as beautiful as this one, yet I’m more of a Corian person than marble but the mirrors are exactly how I would like ours to be fitted.

The basin of this one is a bigger version of the one I’ve ordered and if we can’t fit the mirror into the wall, then having an illuminated mirror might be plan B, I think.
So out of all of these, which do you prefer?

The perfect mirror..

August 1, 2014

Our loft conversion with en-suite bathroom is almost finished (give ot take a door & radiators to install). You can see some photos I posted here and here before going on holidays or search for hashtag bodieandfourenovations on Instagram to see the whole project.

BODIE and FOU Style Blog: Bathrooms and the perfect mirror http://blog.bodieandfou.com/


The whole house is a building site and Steve and I are literally camping in this new room (LOVE the view!) but I think, we are managing the disruptions pretty well.
We have the basics covered!
We can shower (LOVE the new shower & our tiles) and we’ve added a mini fridge in one corner so I can carry on doing smoothies for my healthy challenge.

One thing that has bugged me since the beginning of this project was finding a cool, nice mirror.
I wanted something a bit more special than a straight rectangular one and I’ve finally found the one I want which will also be part of our AW/2014 collection.
What do you think? I think it has a very cool, Scandi design and the shelf below will be just perfect to display my favourite cosmetics.
