Part Two : Anylu

When you enter our casa, you walk into one of the original rooms of the house. It is huge! The approx. size is somewhere around 15 feet by 25 feet with 18 foot ceilings. The ceilings showcase some beautiful beams called vigas. We are using the right hand door (twin entrance ways were common) as our main entrance and wanted to give it a foyer feeling. Thus Carlos and Roger decided that a huge mirror with an entrance table below where we could put flowers would be a great welcome. Anylu had the mirror designed and it is now installed. Simply beautiful. Enough said!
The door to the right is our main entrance

This mirror is huge and is a beautiful addition, and see how it reflects the beams!

The last part of this project was to add some under sink cabinets in two of the 3.5 bathrooms. The first being our master bath off the upstairs master bedroom. Here there is a double sink with tile counter. We wanted enough room to hide all the toiletries as well as toilet paper and clean towels. Anylu designed a very nice hanging cabinet with double doors, three drawers as well as cubbies to hold clean rolled towels. As this floats above the floor we can clean underneath it easily. 

The last items are in the new casita where the bathroom has split vanities on either side of a doorway. Here Anylu designed and installed smaller versions of the same cabinet. Should be very functional!

I will be so excited to see these wonderful additions when we visit our house next month. We are so busy here in St Louis working on all the projects with our house here, getting ready for the big move...Just not enough time in the day!
