Strictly Black and White Nursery…oh and Gold! 06.25.15

comment & share

Here’s a black and white nursery that screams elegance and opulence!  This rug is definitely too much for a nursery, but I just couldn’t resist adding it; it’s just too stunning! So easy to place it in any room in the house.

Powder Room Makeover – Before and After 06.17.15

comment & share

I’m happy to have one of the 4 areas I’ve been wanting to design in my house completed! The powder room is done and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I shared my inspiration and design plans for the room here. As I mentioned before, I wanted it to have a dark and elegant look with classic lines.  As much as I would have loved to put up that wall paper and have that custom sink, it was way out of my budget for the room. I knew I could get the same feel and look by taking elements that define the space and reintroducing them in a way that’s within my budget. That meant dark walls and gold accents along with classic lines. I love the transformation! 

As I mentioned before, the powder room is extremely small! So it was a challenge finding a pedestal sink that fit in the space with the lines I had in mind. The Kohler Memoires sink was perfect though! I love its elegant look and classic lines. I also came across The Kohler Purist faucet and instantly fell in love! This was my main splurge and I think it’s totally worth it. I love the finish and the lines and everything else about this faucet! I got it in the vibrant modern brushed gold finish. 

The toilet was also from the Memoirs series by Kohler. I stuck with the gold finish for the toilet paper holder as well as the towel ring. Love the quality + price on these! I got them both in the antique finish.

To a certain extent, I love mixing different design styles. Since everything in the bathroom boasted the classic traditional look, I wanted the art to be abstract and modern. I found this print on etsy and had it printed at my local printer.

Powder Room Inspiration and Design 06.07.15

comment & share

Now that I’m finally wrapping up the powder room, I would like to share with you my inspiration for the room as well as the design board I’ve put together. 

In really small rooms, I’ve always been drawn to strong bold statements and dark colors. It doesn’t get smaller than our powder room. I posted a before picture here, and as you can see, it’s tiny and boring! 

I knew I wanted to have dark walls and gold accents.  While looking on pinterest, I came across this bathroom and instantly fell in love with its elegant and traditional look.

This marble sink with gold/brass pedestal legs had me drooling! It looks pretty expensive right? right! I looked into it and found that it would cost me double the budget I had set for the entire bathroom to have this sink custom made (Since our powder room is so small, I would have had to customize it). So after grieving it for half a day, I started putting together a design board that would result in a similar look and feel as the above bathroom but within my budget. 

Here’s my design board.  I am very happy with the end results and love how elegant the bathroom ended up looking. I will share photos of the room later on this week or early on next week! Resources for this design board are below.

Currently Loving 06.04.15

There have been a few things I’ve been loving recently that I’d like to share with you! I don’t do this often enough, but I will do my best to share products I come across that I find myself always wanting to recommend while using them. Here’s what I’m loving right now.

Toddler cups – I got these at babies r us. They have a screw on lid and come with straws. Super lightweight and very easy to clean and handle.

Bella Band – since I entered the second trimester, I’ve been using this band whenever I wear jeans. I’m 30 weeks pregnant now and still wearing my pre-pregnancy jeans!

Fabletics Leggings – I bought these from Fabletics a while ago but I think they still sell them. The quality is amazing and they are super comfy and easy to move in.

Stilla contouring kit – this has to be the best contouring product I’ve ever come across. I usually have a hard time blending the contour or it just looks fake, but this one here blends seamlessly into your skin and looks super natural!

David & Goliath – I love Malcom Gladwell! He writes the most insightful books and has such a unique way of looking at things. I love the perspective he takes in this book and highly recommend it! Also, if you haven’t read Outliers, I must say, you are missing out big time!

Neutrogena Microdermabrasion Kit – If you have sensitive skin and tend to break out easily, then I highly recommend this kit! It has helped me tremendously in keeping my skin looking even and bright over the past year and a half!

Thanks for stopping by!
