The bathroom is always a fun and easy space to add some TLC. If you read my blog from last week, you will remember that I mentioned that bedrooms should have the aesthetic of a private spa. The bathroom is an extension of the bedroom and should also be tranquil and comfortable. Not to mention the magical touch of Chase Dowell Interior Design is a must also. 😉

Below are 3 quick tips that will bring tranquility and beauty to your bathroom.

  1. Accessorize. Towels, dishes, framed pictures, trays, florals, candles and other pieces will all enhance the look and ambiance of your bathroom. Accessories should also help keep your bathroom organized.
  2. Lighting. For ambient lighting, install a beautiful chandelier thats breathtaking but not over powering. Decorative sconces make the perfect task lighting in the bathroom for your vanity area. To achieve a spa like atmosphere, switch out your current lightbulbs for a softer bulb or install a dimmer.
  3. Hardware. Make your bathroom photo ready with bronze, chrome, or nickel finishes. Choosing finishes is personal and should reflect your personal style. Don’t be afraid to be corky and creative in this area.

The bedroom is where we spend most of our time in our homes
even if it’s just for sleep. For this reason, the bedroom should be a serene, comfortable, and stylish getaway from all the noise of the everyday grind. Your bedroom should have an aesthetic that makes you feel as though you have your own private spa right at home. Combine comfortability with style to achieve the perfect bedroom that reflects you.

If your bedroom is neither stylish nor comfortable, here are three quick tips to change that around:

Fix #1

What’s On The Bed?

Bedding makes all the difference in a bedroom. Place about 50 pillows on the bed in multiple layers. OK, maybe not 50 but you get the point right? Have some fun with the textures, hues, and patterns.

Fix #2

What’s on the wall?

Use a wall covering to bring edginess and life to your bedroom. If you have a headboard, be sure that the wall covering and headboard compliment one another.

Fix #3

What’s on the floor?

Rugs are always a staple in a room. Not only is this an opportunity to add patterns, textures or hues at the ground level, but it also adds that extra padding for comfortability.

“To see in color is a delight for the eye but to see in black and white is a delight for the soul.” – Andri Cauldwell

Ok. Let’s get to business.

There’s something about this classic pairing that will continue to translate century after century as a staple. With black and white, unity is achieved easily and effectively. Toss in a variety of textures and lines and you have a masterpiece at hand.

I love working with the color black because it is a mysterious color associated with formality, elegance, and power. Though simple in tone, it can be used in many varieties that can bring interest and conversation into a room. If you need a little convincing, check out these B&W design concepts that would make your home undeniably beautiful.
