Going Modern in the Bathroom

Most would assume that going modern in a bathroom would make it look even more cold and sterile than it already does, but they haven't seen all the options yet!

The right lighting can make any room feel warm and plants get it a fresh look that bring a sense of comfort and color to the room.

This modern floating vanity provides tons of useful storage space! More of our favorite bathroom upgrades: http://www.bhg.com/bathroom/remodeling/planning/our-favorite-bathroom-upgrades/?socsrc=bhgpin052513floatingvanities=1

Using neutral colors along with the modern materials can give it that warm feeling you are looking for paired with some great mirrors makes it even brighter. I love that tile!

Even with the darker tones for a more manly bathroom doesn't have to look cold and miserable. It still looks modern and sleek with a hint of color and I love it! 


There are some great vanity and shower tub options that are on Modern Bath that can help you match these looks.

There's a couple of things I like about this room: large round mirror; the vintage wall hung vanity echoes the journey to all of the modern interpretations we see today, but is one of a kind - and those timber tones in a bathroom - sensational.

You could even mix the modern with the vintage for a completely different look! It's a great mix of new and old that comes to life when it's together.

A Peek Inside Movie Houses

Every now ant then I like to pull up the websites of companies that manage properties for movie and photo shoot rentals.  Here are a few favorite spaces I found this time.

Making the Most out of a Small Space

Sometimes it's the small spaces that seem the hardest to work with, other times they are the most fun! You may no feel like you have a lot of room in your home, but here are a bunch of spaces that make the best out of the square footage they do have!



Who says you can't have a hugy comfy chair in a small room?

Or a kitchen table that only has two chairs?


A closet in your staircase might not be your initial thought.

Or a desk in your closet! But it looks great doesn't it?

Simple Ways to Spruce Up for Fall

Changing decorations out for seasons is an easy way to bring the outdoors in, but sometimes it's not the most convenient. For starters, storing all these decorations can be a bit overwhelming and frustrating. Spending a huge budget on changing decor isn't always ideal either. Here's a happy balance of both that can get you on the right track!

Blankets and candles are things almost all homeowners have around the house. Placing them in the right spot can really change up the decor and bring some fall loveliness in! Since these are also things that are already have around the house, you won't need to find extra storage options for them later.


It's amazing what a tray of white pumpkins can do! Trays are so versatile and can be used year round in different locations, and pumpkins - although they aren't always cheap - aren't something you'll have to worry about storing! 


Empty frames, burlap, a great jar, some old books, and that touch of outdoor fall really gives this mantel a great look. These are things you  might be able to find laying round the house that you can pick up! If you aren't interested in using pumpkins, you can always find acorns or pine cones to take their place. Using things you already have is a great budget option.


Here's another option for things lying around the house or outside that you might find as a great budget friendly home decor option!

Even decorating the outdoors can be overwhelming! For me a simple wreath can do the trick and look so elegant at the same time!
