Add Some Luxury to Your Bathroom

Our home was built in the late 80’s and while out master bath is neutral, it is definitely in need of some updates.  Of course I would like to gut the entire thing and start from scratch, but that’s not exactly an option right now.  So update it is.  And while I have been pouring over ideas, I came across a few items I am sure will give me that retreat I am looking for.

 

I dream of a warm soak in a eep tub with a glass of champagne and a candle at my side.  With this rolling valet from Frontage you can keep all those little items close at hand. So, soak away.

When you step out of a bath or shower, wrap yourself in a nice plush towel.  Now let’s face it, most of us haven’t purchased new towels since we moved into our homes. Well it’s time to replace those worn and ripped old things.  Try these Ralph Lauren Towels from Bloomingdales. They are soft, cozy and come in a rainbow of colors.

And to keep those towels nice and warm, this towel warmer from Brookstone does the job. It may look small but it can warm two large towels at once.

Lastly, do you sing in the shower like I do?  Then stream your favorite tunes through this waterproof bluetooth speaker. from Brookstone. The little tail is flexible so you can wrap it around anything and use it anywhere.  The tail is also removable so you have the option of using the suction cup at the bottom.

It’s Easy Being Green

Where have I been? Well, truth be told I was enjoying the wonderful weather of summer and taking a little break.  But now, I’m back and recharged! So, let’s start sharing…

For several years now, the soft, neutral look has played a major part in interior design. Soft grays and beiges have dominated creating a clean and soothing look. But are times changing?

New decorating trends indicate the bold color is making a comeback, and in my opinion, not a moment too soon. One color I have seen popping up quite a bit is green. Both on the runway and home design, green is taking center stage.

This beautiful kitchen was designed by Kelly Wearstler for actress Cameron Diaz. The emerald green cabinets beautifully set off the brass backsplash and fixtures.

Designer Kat Burkis created this bright and airy dressing room in chartreuse and apple-green. “Strong colors supply meaning and definition that give these areas special significance,” she says.

Wouldn’t you love to fall asleep in this elegant and soothing bedroom. The green walls and floral prints give a nod to nature and create a relaxing atmosphere.

Now if you’re ready to infuse some green to your home but don’t want to as far as these designers, start small with one of these pieces…

As I was writing this post last evening I was watching the 2016 Emmy Awards. Look how beautiful these green dresses look on the red carpet.
