Bronze + Brass Bathroom Renovation

Gold and brass metal accents are continuing to rule in the design world. Many designers wonder: Can I mix metals? The answer: YES! If done correctly... 

I put together 3 metal combinations for you! The first is often overlooked: Bronze + Brass! 

The oil rubbed bronze framed mirror and vanity light fixture pair well with the dark, luscious wood grain laminate. The light quartz contains warm and cool striations that help balance and anchor the different metals. Overall this palette provides a clean, warm atmosphere for any bathroom renovation that can easily be completed with any of the bold color accents below!

Whimsical Bedroom

In December PANTONE unprecedentedly choose two colors of the year, "the blending of two shades - Rose Quartz and Serenity."

"Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace."

PANTONE is serious about color. They choose to blend two colors together to highlight calm, opposing shades that highlight our need to unwind and our movement towards gender equality. 

At first glance I pictured the colors of the year in a lofty bedroom full of plush pillows and fur blankets. I immediately wanted to design a bedroom that incorporated these shades. With my own minimalist twist I designed 4 bedroom palettes. Which would you choose! Comment below :)

Nightstand Decisions

The thought and deliberation that goes into designing a bedroom is on another level. The bedroom is possibly the most important room in your home. It should be happy, functional, comfy, inviting, relaxing... and organized!!! That's a long list of goals for one space. 

Right now our bedroom needs a little love and attention. We need nightstands, a headboard and a new dresser. Our IKEA furniture has held up through multiple moves but will soon retire to the local Salvation Army...

My Favorite YouTube Channels

Ingrid Nilsen

I love Ingrid! This was the first YouTube channel I started subscribing to back in the day. She started out with makeup how-to videos. She has since expanded her subject repertoire to home tours, DIY, recipes and many other light style topics. <3

Jerry Seinfeld is a genius. Just watch it. You are sure to be entertained.
