Before and After – Black and White Master Bathroom

I worked on this black and white master bath project a LONG time ago, but I’ve been sharing it on Instagram and remembered that I never shared it here on the blog. Then, my client actually moved out of her home right after we had her first install, so I never got a chance to get professional photos taken OR finish up the last couple of details. It’s a good thing I took decent(ish) photos with my phone, so I can share them with you!

Let’s start with the before photos.

Gorgeous Packaging and Nature-Inspired Fragrances from the Chesapeake Bay Candle

I LOVE a home that smells good. I’m a candle hoarder and light candles all the time. I love fresh, highly fragrant scents as soon as I wake up (when I’m cleaning), and a soft, floral scent a couple hours before I go to bed.

So, since I burn candles often, I obviously like to use a natural wax, like soy. I used to make and sell candles a long time ago, so I have a lot of experience with different waxes, scents, and formulas.

Chesapeake Bay Candle sent me four highly scented soy candles in beautiful containers to review. Being a designer, and lover of fancy packaging, I love when a product’s container can be reused for cute storage. Once I’ve finished burning these candles, I’ll clean the jars and use them to plant succulents and other plants. I’ve already tried taking the clear package labels off and they were coming off easily with no residue.


One Rug, Three Different Transitional Room Designs

Remember my post from last week about beautiful statement pieces? Well, I didn’t add any rugs to that compilation, because I’ll be doing a separate round up just for beautiful statement rugs. But, just a little preview: statement rugs are an absolute MUST HAVE if you want a beautiful room, and are on my SPLURGE LIST (another upcoming post, I promise).

Persian and Oriental rugs are going to be on my SPLURGE LIST and the STATEMENT RUGS upcoming posts, so I had a lot of fun browsing through the beautiful ones of Fine Rug Collection.

They reached out to me to show you guys how to style their Oushak Oriental rug and I was so excited to put them in a few mock room designs. I’ve come up with three different transitional room designs that show off this beautiful rug.


Light-filtering Roller Shades in My Mom’s Kitchen

I’ve been working on a couple projects in my mom’s home, since I’ve moved my office to one of her spare bedrooms. We had a big Christmas party at my mom’s home, so we wanted to get some updates done there before the holidays.

My mom’s kitchen is really dark, but for a couple hours a day, the windows expose the kitchen to very harsh lighting. We wanted to filter that light, but still have light come in to brighten up that space.


Gorgeous Statement Pieces for the Home that We Love to Look at, But Totally Can’t Afford

This post is gonna be all about the drool-worthy, dreamy, completely out-of-budget statement pieces that we love to look at, but will probably never own.

I know I can’t be the only one that loves a beautiful piece that you know your neighbor won’t have, right?

Statement pieces speak to your personality, whether the pieces are in a bold color, unusual style, and or crazy fun shape.


Simple Last Minute Thanksgiving Tablescape Ideas

Two of my favorite bloggers (Alaya of Behind the Big Green Door and Carli of Fearfully & Wonderfully Made) and I are each sharing a last minute Thanksgiving tablescape.

I love a beautiful tablescape, especially during the holiday, but, I hate having a lot of stuff on my table if I’m not using it. Which means my tablescapes are usually simple and last minute, because I’m usually short on time when trying to pull something together.

So, I wanted to share with you how I pulled together my quick, last minute Thanksgiving tablescape that’s really easy to replicate.
