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.

Elegant Living Room Design 01.12.15

comment & share

 

Hello ladies! I’m getting up to a slow start in posting this year. I’m finally starting to feel better and have more energy to go back to my regular routine. I’m really excited about 2015…I have a feeling it’s going to be a great year! One goal I want to set this year is to live intentionally, on purpose, and not just go through the motions. Be conscious of all the moments that present themselves for creating beautiful memories; overcome negative thoughts and emotions before they steal my joy; and push myself when I feel sluggish and tired.

To kick off 2015, I’m sharing a design board for an elegant, and pretty extravagant, living room. I’ve been obsessed with this emerald linen sofa for so long, and so it was the inspiration for this living room design. And how gorgeous is this puzzle chandelier!

Hello lovelies! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. 

I’m loving the vintage and modern mix in this board. Mixing furnishings from various time spans makes it easy to refresh the space from time to time. And how about these mirrors! Love them!

Hi friends! This design board is for the CB2 obsessed. I absolutely love CB2 and always find the most perfect modern and transitional furnishings. Except for a few pieces, this board is mainly designed using CB2 products.  See below for resources.

On a different note, I am not looking forward this coming week. It’s potty training time. Luke is 2.4 years and is definitely ready to be potty trained. Me, not so excited about it, hence putting it off for the past few months. Any tips for this new first time mama? It would be greatly appreciated!
