Bathrooms lend themselves to personalization due to the function they serve. A bathroom should be a place where an individual, alone and at rest, feels completely comfortable, content and calm, no matter what image the greater space endeavors to project. Here are the ones that caught our attention lately.
Yellow is a bold design choice, but it's popular in adventurous kitchens for a good reason – it's a cheerful color full of energy and optimism, associated with cleanliness and freshness. Part of this energetic perception contributes to its association with the marketing of healthy foods. It's appetizing! Yellow is the color of ripe bananas and fresh citrus fruits like tart pineapples and lemons. And if you're working with an especially dark kitchen, there's simply no better way to brighten the space and let this warm natural tone bring nature to you. Check out our yellow room inspiration post to see ideas for the rest of the home.
The bedroom; one of the most sacred rooms of the house and one of the rooms where we spend the most time (even if it's to merely sleep). It can also be one of the few room where you can design and decorate it to meet your particular tastes, and not have to worry what Tom, Dick and Harry thinks, as they'll never see it. For couples, there needs to be a balance, a juggling act, sacrificing personal extremes and coming to an agreement on a design that works for both.
A vanity or a sink stand is one of the main features of every bathroom, it shoes your style and colors, highlights your décor. You can rock vintage vanities with refined design in ivory, pink or lavender color and gold detailing. For a modern bathroom a mirrored sink stand is a great idea, find a matching mirror for a chic look. If you have a refined and luxurious bathroom, you can rock a lit up marble vanity with adorable faucets. Glam bathrooms look awesome with gilded sink stands and faucets, and a whitewashed vanity would look great in a shabby chic bathroom. Don't forget of the storage space – open shelving or drawers, we need them to store all the bathroom supplies and makeup.
The Container Store’s Clear Shelf Divider is a clever way to keep sweaters, jeans and other items neatly stacked on your closet shelves. It serves double duty, thanks to a built-in valet hook for hanging items.
The beautiful dandelion example below, to me, speaks something about me and my life. It is more than a nice looking picture; and this is what to aim for within this trend, which will be a popular one for 2014.
A sofa can be considered the base and focal point of any living room, so choosing it is very important. If you want, you can always choose a neutral sofa that will easily fit any space but I'd like to share girlish ones. Pink, blush, lavender, purple with metallic accents are right what you need to express yourself, and the design can be totally different, from vintage refined to simple and modern. Prefer soft upholstery, rounded shapes and oval backs, gilded legs and lots of soft and fluffy pillows.
With this in mind, we return to our reality. Now that summer is over and we hurry towards wintertime, outdoor canopy beds are put aside for an encounter with cozy canopy beds in the bedroom. Feathered beds used to be frameless bags filled with feathers that had to be fluffed every morning. Now we indulge in soft but sturdy mattresses with luxurious bedsheets under breezy canopies.
The next step is to determine how much work, cost and house renovating it will take to convert your attic into a master bedroom. For older houses, the heating, ventilating and air conditioning will have to be run to the attic and possibly plumbing pipes. For many home owners, the expense of having to run new services to the attic is minimal in comparison to the benefit of added space and functionality. Before you get started, ask a contractor or a home improvement professional to assist you in estimating the costs. Remember return on investment (ROI) could bring you back more money than you invested into the initial conversion.
Such a bright and light-filled room often looks a bit cold, so the designers opted for pastel furniture and décor. The furniture is modern, simple, partly from IKEA, which is a symbol of timeless Nordic décor. Pastel pillows, banners, chairs, wall and fireplace décor spruced up a cold space and turned it into an inviting one.
