Powder Room Transformation

   

Happy Tuesday! Today I'm bringing you some home inspo with my some before and afters of my powder room project.

Our powder room started like this {below, left} when we moved in {AHHH!!!}

Then, it turned to this {above, right} when we moved in and replaced the vanity with a pedestal sink + painted it Ben Moore's 'Duxbury Gray.' I loved the deep color and the fact that I used to live in Duxbury, Massachusetts and it is one of my favorite places. But, I quickly realized that the color was too dark for such a small space, not to mention there's not a whole bunch of natural light in here. 

I have a classic interior style but love to add in contemporary pieces and pops of color, mixing patterns, etc {much like my personal style}. AKA, I'm not afraid to get a little bold. I decided on this wallpaper from Wayfair {among other places} much to the dismay of Harrison, who said it "looked like an easter egg". I naturally ignored this. Here are some shots of the finished project ::

This was a fairly inexpensive project. The powder room only took 2 rolls of wallpaper since it is such a small space. Then, I added a new mirror and accessories. All in all, with the cost of wallpaper, installation, new light fixture, mirrors + accessories, this room came in under $600.

I have greenery in every room in my home. I think it adds the perfect amount of green which is a color not many of us have a whole lot of in our decor. Greenery is also a clean and simple way to accessorize shelving, tabletop and more. Homegoods is the place to find it; from faux succulents, to topiaries to vases of flowers and more.

Happy Thursday! Today I have an exciting tidbit of news to share; Many of you have been following along for awhile now and I've gotten multiple inquiries about my home, interior design tips, hair + beauty questions and more. So, I've decided to expand the scope of the blog and take it to more of a "lifestyle" level, rather than solely focusing on fashion. Not to worry, fashionistas -- the majority of my posts will continue to revolve around style, sharing my favorite things, tips and tutorials and wardrobe must-haves. I'll just be throwing in some home decor ideas + tips, beauty secrets, DIY projects and favorite everyday items as well! 

So let's start with a recent DIY project Harrison and I took on. For those of you who don't know, we bought a 1962 fixer-upper in September. Almost every weekend since has been spent on home renovations, DIY projects, sprucing up and more. All of these home inspiration posts are ones that I've experienced firsthand.

A little bit of grasscloth can go a long way! I love the way grasscloth wallpaper can transform a space from regular to upscale in a jiff. It looks amazing in bathrooms, on accent walls and even as a background in built-ins. We chose to use it on an  accent wall in our breakfast nook and only needed about 3/4 of a roll. On such a small space, it's a cheap and {fairly} easy project! 

BEFORE + AFTER

 This 'Before + After' was taken right after we finished initial renovations and moved in. We were using our existing furniture which was too dark for the space, and the original light fixture {which wasn't centered over the table!} It was a HUGE improvement from when we bought the house, but not up to par with the vision I had for this space.

I love the gray color of this because it gives a cool, modern and clean feel.

This is a gray faux grasscloth wallpaper made of vinyl, which not only makes it less expensive, but ideal for places like bathrooms where there might be a lot of moisture. I ordered off Amazon, which is a GREAT place to find certain wallpaper at the lowest prices.

The wall didn't need much after adding the grasscloth, so I ditched the shelving I had before and just stuck with framed art {I love a good mirrored frame}

Shop some of my other favorite grasscloth wallpapers and give it a try! I'd love to see your results.
