How to Decorate a Small Bath with Big Style.....Tip #1

Several weeks ago the Master Bath was revealed, and since it's completion we have really been enjoying our new space. The renovation took much longer than we anticipated, so we decided to take a mini break, before tackling another home improvement project. Now that we are somewhat rested it's time to turn our attention to the powder bath. You can see how the powder room looks here. After this bath is completed we will only have two more bathrooms left to renovate. Yay! Since we are redoing the powder room we've decided to steer clear of the same ole, same ole bathroom per se. This time around we plan to give this space the WOW factor. We figure it's the powder room, so we've decided to GO BIG or GO HOME! After the decision was made to GBOGH, the first thing I did was surf the internet to find pieces that caught my eye and tickled my fancy.


I knew I wanted a vessel sink and this sink was totally an eye catcher for me. I absolutely love the color, the shape, the crackled look of the glass and the ethnic vibe this sink exudes. The faucet is really cool too, and I think it grounds the sink nicely. This sink was found on amazon, so check it out when you get a chance. I am not affiliated with amazon.

The only things that are staying in this space are the mirror and the light fixture, everything else has gotta go! I am still debating on whether or not to paint the mirror, but I guess I will make that decision once the bathroom begins to take shape.


Hubby is going to build the vanity, and It's going to be super simple but stylish. We have opted not to add doors to the vanity, instead we will use decorative baskets to house all of the needed paraphernalia. Below is a pair of  drawer pulls I found that tickled my fancy. These pulls are going to be a great addition to our simple yet stylish vanity.


Was I right about that last statement or what? I love these pulls so much because no two are the same, plus I think they are going to look quite stunning on the vanity. These pulls were purchased on a recent trip to Hobby Lobby. I looked for them online in hopes of adding a link, but no such luck. (sorry!) So if you are interested in these pulls check with your local Hobby Lobby Store.


As I stated earlier Hubby is going to build the vanity. Now, there will be room left in the budget for a solid surface counter top. So next up, a trip to the granite yard. Once there it didn't take me long to find what I wanted. However, the first remnant I found was a no go. It was defective and couldn't be used. So back to the drawing board I went. Right when I was about to give up, I scored big! I stumbled upon a remnant, that matches the granite that I already have in my kitchen perfectly! Who knew? I am tremendously excited about all of my selections for the powder room thus far. When finished I believe this room is going to be simply amazing!!!

Now for tip #1 How to decorate a small bath with big style.

1. Be true to you!
More often times than not I find that a large number of us are afraid to just be ourselves when it comes to decorating/creating our spaces. What I am about to say I say out of love. Just because a trend is hot doesn't mean you have to fall for it hook line and sinker. And just because everybody else is doing something, doesn't mean you have to do it. Don't get me wrong it's okay to stay current with what's going on in the industry, but what if the current trend is something you don't like? Are you willing to sacrifice "Being true to you" for something that you really love or want to do in your space, for the sake of what everyone else is doing? I certainly hope not! Here's a prime example. The color grey is super hot right now and it has been for quite some time. Every where you look you see it. If you don't believe me check out your favorite blogs or turn on the TV. Grey seems to be the only color that some of our favorite TV personalities use. I know, I know it's "the new beige" and "it's here to stay". But what if you don't care for the color grey? Would you still use it because it's a popular color, even though you don't like it? That's absurd!!! Instead, why not pick a color that you not only love and gravitate to, but a color that will set the tone and create the perfect back drop; for all the things you love. Lastly, give yourself permission to "Be true to you" and your home will begin to take shape and evolve into the perfect place that you've created just for you! I hope this helps someone.


Make today a GREAT day!

My Fall Table

There are only nine days left until Thanksgiving. And I am so excited because I get to share it with close friends and family. By the way, the grand baby will be here too! Yay! Ok, back to the post.   My Fall Table turned out quite lovely if I must say so myself. This year instead of using a table cloth, I used a variety of fabric samples swatches to cover the table. So, what do you think? I love all the different colors patterns and textures, and they actually play off each other nicely. And I am hoping the fabric sample table cover will be a great conversation starter as well. I will let you know how it goes. Spode  China and pumpkins from the Dollar Tree who knew? Initially the table had two fall wreaths and two lanterns. You can see it here. But I had to remove one of each to make room for the table settings. You know how I love animal print. I think every room needs a little touch of it. How about you?             

Easy Last Minute Ideas For Fall

The count down has begun! Can you believe there are only 8 days left until the turkey is carved? So, today I figured I would share some easy last minute ideas to get you through Fall/Thanksgiving Holiday. So let's get started! These diy wreaths may look quite intimidating but on the contrary they aren't at all. To get this look you will need a grapevine wreath, garland of your choice, floral wire and ribbon. Simply take the garland and place it around the wreath. Once the garland is in place attach it to the wreath using floral wire. Next, add the bow and hang the wreath. Project complete! Your family and friends will be impressed. For best results make sure that the garland is long enough to cover the entire circumference of the wreath. If the wreath above is still a bit much, why not give this wreath a try? The only things needed are a grapevine wreath and ribbon of your choice. Now make a big bow and attach it to the wreath. Voila!  I used a pipe cleaner/chenille

How I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30

 I am over the super excited to bring you one of several posts revealing how I decorated my Christmas Tree/Foyer for less than $30.Yes,you heard me right. And I must say it looks quite fabulous, but before the reveal can take place, we have to go through the process. Sorry!!! So, keep reading to find out how I transformed the space for so little. Each year I try to incorporate creative ways to decorate my home on an extremely tight budget, and this year was no exception. But in order to get the ball rolling on this project, I needed some inspiration. Well, my inspiration came via a promise I made to my grand baby. I promised her that Zsa Zsa(that's me) would decorate a Christmas tree she would love. However, with that being said, I also knew the design/decor had to be whimsical and playful enough for her. But it also had to appeal to the adults in the family as well. (mainly me) So, I put my design thinking cap on and came up with a plan, that I thought would appeal to both partie
