1820-30 Creole brick b/t post cottage renovation pics!

Y'all helped me with my bath and kitchen, so I thought some of you might like to see how the white subways w/gray/silver grout look with the marble countertops in the kitchen, and the same subways with the white hex flooring and carrera marble vanity top, and beadboard walls in the bathroom.
It's not a strict period kitchen and bathroom, but they were choices that were appropriate to the house and didn't detract from the beauty of it. It's a 1820-1830 Creole cottage: 1100 square foot main house and a separate 400 sf former kitchen building/slave quarters in the back. Thanks, everyone!

Thanks for sharing, nolagirl! It turned out fantastic and I love your choices (well, I never tire of white cabinets and subway tie). They tie the house together beautifully.

Hello--what a fantastic old house! I didn't know what a Creole cottage was like. It's a very comfortable looking home that showcases the old detailing but isn't a dogmatic recreation of the past. Perfect.

Nolagirl, it is absolutely awesome! I'm redoing a Louisiana house myself. I cannot get enough New Orleans architecture, you just did a perfect job on it. I haven't checked this site in awhile, I need to more often!

What a fabulous house! Can I move in? :) I guess I missed all of your previous posts (and couldn't seem to find them when I did a search), so forgive me if I'm repeated what others have asked, but what's the history of your house? Is it a "typical" house for its era/location? Why is there a building in the backyard? How was it used--and how do you plan to use it?

I'm a domestic historian, so I can't help asking nosy questions when I see a neat old place! :)
