"If you look at the people who make up the Bravo landscape from Jeff Lewis to Rachel Zoe and Padma Lakshmi and Tabatha Coffey and the 'Millionaire Matchmaker,' these are very strong personalities that people love to watch and that you... don't see anywhere else."

Now that you're an Empty Nester and looking to renovate your home, it's the ideal time to add the bathroom renovation you've been wanting for years. You may choose to renovate an existing bathroom or add a new one on the main level. You’ll definitely want to do this if you’ve decided to relocate your master suite to the main level, but even if you are not planning to do that, carefully consider the option of a full bathroom available to you on the main level.
Here are just a few of the many considerations for great bathroom design for Empty Nesters:
1. Include grab bars in a shower or tub or simply plan for them by adding the blocking in the wall framing when you renovate the bathroom. It’s much more cost-effective to include these details now than have to rebuild for them later.
2. Choose a vanity with an open area below the counter to accommodate a chair or wheelchair.
3. Design the shower with a bench and add hand-held shower heads that can reach the seating area.
4. Design the layout to allow space to manoeuvre a wheelchair or walker.
5. Non-slip surfaces everywhere!
Especially in the kitchen and bathrooms, it’s critical to get the details right when designing for an efficient, functional and beautiful home renovation. You don’t have to navigate the complexities on your own. Jim Bell has the expertise and 30 + years of architectural design experience to design a spectacular home to serve you now and well into the future.

The autumn is bringing a lot of things into our lives and home that we never expected. The best of which is a 4 year old Siberian husky mix named Winter "Winnie" Levell whose main hobby is sleeping! She is such a blessing for me because I really have been pining for a pet that would cuddle! The hardest thing this season is learning to let go and trust in the Lord when we experience criticism or tension with others. I'm such a people pleaser that feeling any sort of rift in a relationship with a friend causes me a lot of anxiety. I'm learning to do what I can to resolve tension, while always seeking biblical counsel and wisdom. I hope that this amazing season grows me more as a follower of Christ, a wife and a friend!
What is the best part of the season of life you are in, and what is the hardest?

Could you live in this cottage? Aye or Nay? Love this shot by @lauriebracewell of this beautiful thatched wonder called Pike Cottage. Formerly called Tilt-Up-End cottage, in stunning Chipping Campden, England. I'm not asking because it's an obvious answer, for some living in such a popular cottage that people want to visit would be a big no no. I think, given time, I could just about get over it 🤓
We are experiencing (in most of Britain) an incredible spot of warm weather this weekend. In fact, London is going to hit 23 degrees (75 fahrenheit) tomorrow due to Storm Ophelia dragging up lots of hot weather from Spain. It's way above the normal for this time of year. There are even some brave Brits wearing shorts!
Wouldn't recommend shorts during the annual shin-kicking games, that have been held here since the early seventeenth century thou'. The town has been home to rural games, now called "Robert Dover's Cotswold Olimpick Games" with the highlight being the annual sport of....yes, kicking each other in the shins until the pain becomes unmanageable! We are bonkers. This sport has been a perennial favourite at the games for over 400 years. That's a lot of sore shins. Thankfully, hay can be stuffed down the trousers to ease one's brave passage to later rounds!
Have a lovely Sunday! I'm off to kick some leaves and scoff a pile of roasted spuds! Brilliant shot by @lauriebracewell 🇬🇧 Want your Photos of Britain to be featured? Follow us and tag us in the picture too! We feature the very best of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland! 🇬🇧
