mosaic & interiors: bathing is an art

I would choose artistic mosaic work for the bathroom and not industrial-commercial but I  think these samples are smashing, adding so much character in the space. What do you think? I love the grays..for the bathroom making a statement of minimal class, no more "blues" from an italian newspaper-home section here.

Soumela, Greece: Some mosaic highlights of a holy place

I will say little on Soumela and the place as I have been very lazy yet I have all the good reasons for not having the time to read and find out about the history but I know that it is one of the most famous destinations of pilgrimage in Greece dedicated to the Mother of God, Panagia. I am posting some pictures that I took of the interior and exterior of the church that I found most intriguing, sometimes unusually extraordinary and always highly expressive. I love the gold soothing glittering images from the interior which was very difficult to photograph....Hope you like it.

ps: All pictures taken by myself. Please do not distribute or publish without my consent. Thank you.

Mosaic table mat

Is the kitchen still a woman's kingdom?

Perhaps not anymore sadly.

I have made this mosaic with bisazza tesserae in light blue and brown.

ps: my posts will have to be very short as I am in the middle of a huge project in the house, hope you still enjoy the blog :)
