Tips For Turning Your Bathroom into a Spa Retreat

dream bathroom

I spend a lot of time in my bathroom getting ready in the morning or doing my bedtime routine at night. Too much time is spent in this room for it to be anything but fabulous. I want my bathroom to create a feeling of relaxation. Also, since I don’t have a powder room or guest bathroom, I want to keep my personal items out of sight or neatly organized and make my guests feel right at home.

Home Chic: My Home!

dream desk

I’ve finally finished decorating the apartment and I am so proud of it! It’s the first time I have lived somewhere and had full control over decorating decisions. In San Diego I had roommates, in DC I had roommates and in LA I lived with my sister but in Dallas I live with my bf and he sorta let me take the reins.

Of course it’s not a house so you can’t really make it your own but decorating helps!

I took it one room at a time and worked slowly and I am so glad I did. When I finished one room and the excitement of seeing it completed wore off, I would get started on the next. It prolonged my enjoyment. Of course, the decorating is never really finished. I am always scouring Home Goods, antique stores, World Market and Pier 1 for more items. I just love making my home a nice place to be.

Below is my completed apartment!

Kitchen:

This was easy to complete considering it is a beautiful kitchen to begin with. Dark mahogany wood, granite counters, green sub-way tile back-splash, dark wood floor…all it took was a few easy touches. A golden peacock feather serving-tray from India, a cookbook display (which is extremely useful), a spice rack and a few odd- and-ends. It is my favorite room in the house.
