How We Brought European Flair to Our Master Bath + Sources

*This post contains affiliate links. As always, all the views expressed are my own. Welcome back to the blog for another room reveal! We can’t really call this a room transformation, however, because it has looked like this since the day we moved in, minus a few styling details. I’ve just been a little slow on showing off.  I shared a little bit about how a trip to Europe influenced our master bathroom design in a recent article for Design & Living Magazine. You can read it here. There are also some more great wide angle shots of the bathroom taken by J. Alan Paul Photography. As I mentioned in the article, the design of the bathroom is a bit unique in… Read More

Our Master Bedroom Reveal + Sources

Ideas for Decorating the Guest Bedroom

*This post contains affiliate links. We are all about bedrooms this month. Our master bedroom will be featured in Design & Living Magazine in about a week, we are bringing you through the complete process of designing E’s big girl room and today I’m showing off my vision boards for the basement guest bedroom. When you have a good thing going, why stop? The guest bedroom is quickly nearing completion. We are just waiting on a steel ladder and railing guard. Since the room is small and the beds are built in there isn’t the need for a ton of decor, but I wanted the few items we do use to be playful and fun. I put together two design… Read More
