Statement Niches!

Hi there!

Looking for a trend that could actually save you money and looks fabulous?!? YES!!

I’m so digging the fancy, statement bathroom niche trend!  Keep the surrounding tile simple (and affordable), then spend just a little for a WOW moment in the niche.  It’s such a great idea!

One day, in the far future, when I redo the tile in my master bath, I may just have to get me a fergilicious niche!!

The one negative?  Your bottles are totally on display!  Including that nubby soap bar and bright pink razor… Ooohhh, they should start making brass and glass razors.  Heart-eye Emoji!!

So, that’s what’s on my mind today!  With 3 of 4 boys in school and still recovering from my vacation cold (why?!?!) I’m slowly getting back into the rhythm of real life.  It’s hard, right??  I’ve been describing the summer as this big black hole, because when you have kids around the house, you don’t want to work, you don’t want to sand tables – you just want to play all day!!

Are you guys in the same boat?

Zen Inspired Bathrooms

Hi Friends!

You know, it’s always been my opinion that the Japanese know how to do a good bath.  Zen is what I expect at a spa and I’d really love to incorporate that style and vibe into my bathroom… one of these days, when I figure out what the heck to do!!

In the meantime, we can drool over these relaxing spaces and get a bit of inspiration.

I’m not really sure if a rain shower is for me, (not since using the one in my pool bath) cause A. I love a shower with more water pressure and B. it would take forever to rinse out my hair, but wow, this one here is a SHOWSTOPPER!

I’m a big fan of this long, skinny tile.  It looks so chic and effortless and I imagine that I’d love it just the same in 20 years.

Homify

Note the black toilet paper.  These people committed to the look.

This black tile is giving me all the feels.  I LOVE it!!  I’m also really curious how that shower door opens.  It looks like witchcraft is at work there.

Small but impactful!  The wood cladding is so working in this space.  What a genius idea for a long, hall-like bathroom!

Wanna get your zen on?!  ME TOO!!

Just a few fun products I’ve had my eyeballs on.  I haven’t seen the ivory tile, but I’m thinking that I need to, stat!

Green Nightstands

Hi guys!

It’s been a wild few weeks, amiright?!  With the end of school and baseball, a girls’ trip to Ojai, work caca and a dental emergency (worst EVER), I’ve been an over-heated ball of nerves… mostly good stuff, though!  Needless to say, I’m pretty geeked up that this (should?) could be a week of relative normalcy.

With that outta the way, are you guys ready for the randomest post in the world?  I have actually been trying to write this darn thing for over 3 weeks!  Not too long ago, I was reading something, somewhere and I saw these dark, green nightstands.  They got into my brain space and I could not stop thinking about them.  Like, should I be (immediately) painting my nightstands hunter green?  So, of course, I had to tell you, my buddies, all about my new obsession BUT I COULDN’T REMEMBER WHERE I SAW THE DARN THINGS.  Arg.

I searched and I searched and I searched.

Then I saw them… And do you know what?  They are NOT green!!!!  WTF.

Here is the picture from Little Green Notebook, that Jenny’s team designed for a client.  Look at those nightstands… like a super, dark green, right??

Okay, exhibit B –

Not green!!  SOOOOOOOOOOO not green.  She edited the photo exposure and changed a bunch of colors in the room…. Look at the pillows.  Damn Gina.  Of course that doesn’t change the fact that I much prefer the green color on the nightstands and think it is a fabulous option, if you go painted.  Everyone and their mama has wood nightstands, why not be different?!

Here are two others I found that I thought also looked pretty sweet.

RoomforTuesday spray painted this!

This one’s really cute too.  And it’s certainly unique!

I think overall, I’m really loving green in the bedroom and I’ve got a few ideas on refreshing my own room.  It’s been quite awhile since I’ve done anything to it, so a plan may be forming…. and maybe green nightstands should be on the list.  Perhaps?
