In my previous post here, I shared Luke’s big boy’s room initial design board and mentioned that I’m aiming to share his room mid July. While the room is entirely ready, I’m still waiting on one piece of furniture that I’ve ordered back in May and it keeps getting delayed. Now they’re telling me I won’t receive it until the end of this month. I don’t want to share his room while it’s incomplete. Once I get it, I’ll post pictures pronto!

In the meantime, I’ll post the final design board for his room. I didn’t really drift far from the original design I posted here. Mike really wanted to put a car bed in Luke’s room, so we found this one on amazon and Luke loves it! The low reviews relate to difficulty in putting the bed together, but I can’t comment on that because the delivery people put it together for us. It didn’t look like they were having too hard of a time doing it, even though it was their first time! But I can definitely say that the bed has good quality and construction.

Stay tuned for his room reveal later on this month/early next month!

Black Friday in July! 07.14.15

comment & share

My love for Amazon continues! The retail mogul announced that they will be offering deals to rival those on Black Friday for one day on July 15. The deals will be available to Prime Members only. I’ve been a prime member with Amazon for the past 2 years and I cannot say enough good things about their prime membership! You really need to try it! You can now try it 30 days free (and take advantage of tomorrow’s deals) if you sign up today!  Once you try it, I can guarantee you that you will find it is worth every penny if not more!

My favorite perk about prime membership is the free 2 day shipping. I do most of my shopping (from home goods, baby products, nonperishable goods, furnishings, cleaning supplies, etc) on Amazon and receive them within 2 days. It’s awesome! I pay $99/year but when I calculated the shipping for all items I ordered over the past year, it was over $360. Not factoring in gas saved, time spent, and the headache from having to go shop for things I don’t need to leave the house for along with a toddler. Like I said, it’s priceless to me.

I also got to stream and watch so many series and movies that I would have had to pay for if I didn’t have prime membership. And I got access to 500,000 free books! There are other benefits that I haven’t had the opportunity to take advantage of, such as prime photos and prime music.

So you can see how you’re getting so much for such a small fee! This post is NOT sponsored by Amazon and I am not getting paid to write it. I just truly find that I’m getting much more for the money than what I anticipated and I really wanted to share that with you and encourage you to take advantage for it! Make sure you sign up and give it a try!

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 money 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.
