Looking through interior design photos for inspiration for your own home, you’ve probably noticed that some rooms simply look more inviting than others.

Get The Look: Shortcut To An Industrial Style Bathroom

If there’s one piece of design advice you hear over and over again it’s this: update your hardware. It’s tried and true, but so over-stated that it’s become tired and trite.

Style Guide: Contemporary, Modern, and Mid-Century Bathroom Vanities

If you’re just starting to explore your sense of style, the lingo used by designers can be confusing or off-putting. People often use the words “modern” and “contemporary” interchangeably.

By and large, laundry rooms come in two flavors: banished to the basement, or put on a pedestal in gorgeous, fully-finished, dedicated laundry rooms. But what if I told you there was another option?

I’ve talked about cottagecore at length – from what the style is to how to recreate it at home. But there’s one room in the house that’s never talked about in the cottagecore movement: the bathroom. It seemed strange; the bathroom is arguably the most important room in the home, and can be a huge […]

Modular Bathroom Vanities: Building A Custom Bathroom For Less

When you’re shopping for a new bathroom vanity, it can seem like you have two options: either buy a pre-made vanity from your local big box hardware store, or shell out for custom cabinet work. But having someone else design and build your vanity isn’t the only way to customize your space. Modular bathroom vanities […]

Decorative Flush Mount Lighting: Low Ceilings With Style

I talk a lot on here about the importance of good lighting – how layering multiple stylish fixtures can add depth and beauty to any room in your home. But what if you have low ceilings? Big chandeliers or dangling pendant lights are a no-go in many homes. Flush mount or recessed lighting can make […]

Big Style in a Small Bathroom: Beautiful Bathroom Vanities Under 30″

Decorating a small, high traffic bathroom is a bit of a juggling act. Finding a vanity that fits in the space, with all the storage and features you need is hard enough – to say nothing of getting one that looks good, too. But being “small” and “functional” doesn’t mean a bathroom vanity can’t be […]

Better Bathroom Lighting: Using Mood Lights To Create A Luxurious Finish

Often when we talk about bathroom lighting, it’s in terms of the purely functional: pros and cons of having different kinds of lighting above and around your vanity.
