PITTSBURGH - Instagram didn't turn homemaker Christine McCall into a designer, but the reactions from friends and family to her redo of her Washington County home did create buzz. Two years ago, she began documenting her house's transition from tra ditional to modern millen nial masterpiece. "It was also a way to keep friends and family updated on how we were settling in," she said. She and her husband, Matt, moved from Cleveland to Venetia with their toddler son in 2015. Suddenly a stay at home mom in a strange land, she followed her design pas sion. Then people started asking for design advice and help. "I loved doing this house, and I thought why not start my own company?" Christine McCall Home is the name, her own home is her portfolio. McCall said the house was tastefully decorated when they moved in, but it wasn't her taste. "We pretty much repainted every thing," she said with a smile. The entrance hall is Edgecomb Gray, and the liv ing room is Simply White, both by Benjamin Moore. The walls of the dining room, which were formerly deep red, are now dressed in a navy blue grasscloth; wainscoting and molding are painted a white semi gloss. Her son's room is also wallpapered in a neutral print. "Wallpaper is coming back," she said. "I was out of my comfort zone doing the blue grasscloth since I don't experiment with a lot of color. But I love how it turned out." In the center of the once very formal dining room is a custom built dining table by Penn Township based Penn Rustics (pennrustics.com). A mid century inspired chande lier by Visual Comfort hangs above it. The McCall home is an artful blend of heirloom pieces, antiques, custom designs, Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware. "I like to mix lower cost accent pieces with high end classic furniture." She hunts flea markets, antique shops, the internet, and Target and Marshall's with equal fervor. A perfect example of her ability to blend is the living room, which includes a bar that was her great grandfa ther's, a ladder from an antique shop, poufs from HomeGoods, a sofa and cof fee table from Pottery Barn, and a cool area rug under the coffee table from TJ Maxx. In the hall, she set up a coat rack and bench with a catch all wicker basket. "We don't have a mud room, so I decided to use this angled space in the entry hall," she explained. The kitchen features a floor to ceiling chalkboard created with chalkboard paint. All of the windows on the first floor are naked. "I didn't use a lot of window treatments, and some peo ple think they look unfin ished, but I like a lot of nat ural light." Her son's bedroom is a mix of Restoration Hardware and fun finds. "I wanted his room to be something he could grow into, so I went with the larger bed and the lower dresser so he could feel independent as well." Another of McCall's sig natures is a touch of black in every space. The French doors between the casual living room and family room are painted black, and the chairs in the dining room are black as well. "My mother reminded me that when I was grow ing up, I would lock myself in my room and draw my dream house plans in Five Star notebooks," she said. "I guess it just took me awhile to realize this is what I'm supposed to be doing." Even the smallest bath room remodel is costly. Because the cash investment in a proper remodel is sub stantial, you want to get it right the first time. Most professionals will advise you to complete things in a manner that will endure constant use. Otherwise, you may be regretful in 10 years' time. Fortunately, several favorite design trends for bathrooms are amazing space savers! Let's review a few guidelines. First, using a large tile format for the floors in even tiny rooms is popular. It's rather counter intu itive in that you might have assumed that if your floor is only 6 feet by 6 feet that a 12 inch by 12 inch tile would be best, but that is not the case. If you jump to larger dimen sion tiles, such as a 16 inch by 16 inch or 24 inch by 24 inch, you will achieve a much more fluid look. The larger tile becomes an expansive design piece. Next, frameless glass shower enclosures are undoubtedly the slimmest option for water enclosure. In order to be stable, the glass used must generally be thicker than glass used in a frame. Because it is thicker, it is also more expensive - at a range of $700 to $1,200 per panel. The weight of thick glass also holds it in place: A shower door panel can weigh 80 to 100 pounds, depending on thickness. In the pictured installa tion, the water barrier at the bottom of the panel is anoth er issue, and the panel appears to be sealed with sil icone. Know that over time this compound can become brittle and require replace ment. Fortunately, this par ticular installation is in a wet room, designed so that little damage can occur from splashed water. Another space saving idea is a very slim or tankless toi let. Eliminating the back tank altogether could mean as much as 8 1/2 inch or so of additional space in your bathroom. As the name sug gests, a tankless toilet is any toilet that does not rely on a tank of water to clear its bowl. Instead, these toilets are supplied water from a separate line at a high enough pressure that a single flush can carry human waste through the drainage system. In situations where water pressure is low, toilets can be helped along with pumps or other technologies that power the flush. Of course the other staple of any bathroom is a sink. Often the space starved pow der room is the place where the smallest sinks are need ed. Corner sinks, pedestals or wall hung are ideal. Here we see a very narrow choice. Kohler offers the Veer, which is only 18 1/4 inch deep and is 21 inch wide with room to put toiletries. This is perfect for small spaces and offers a sharp contemporary design. The Ravenna wall mount sink with integrated chrome towel bar by American Standard is 24 1/4 inches wide and 20 inches deep, making it another good option for the tiny bathroom. For a basic under mount sink, consider the American Standard Edgemere style that has a bowl 18 1/2 inch es wide by 16 1/8 inches deep. For a sleek spatial appear ance in small bathrooms, avoid bulky window treat ments. Notice, too, in the bathroom pictured how the accent wall tile is highly reflective, creating a mirror like surface. Light is reflected on the multiple slim tile units that shimmer as mosaics might. The overall simplicity and well chosen individual elements help to create a clean and seamless little bathroom.
