The Holiday Spirit: Gifts for the Bathroom

On average we spend about 30 minutes a day in the bathroom, and many of us invest a lot more quality bathroom time than the national average. This is as good a reason as any to make sure your bathroom is both functional and beautiful! Today, we are highlighting two bathroom looks we love, along with a gift guide suggesting small & affordable ways that you can get the looks without renovating. 'Tis the season to shower your home and those you love with stylish everyday essentials-- pun intended!

Oh and by the way, if you do decide that you want to renovate your bathroom, we fully support that, encourage it, and are happy help. Drop us a line. 

 

LOOK 1

MODERN INDUSTRIAL

Not only is this look as cool as it gets, but it helps disguise bathroom grime-- helpful for those of us who don't clean our bathroom everyday (aka EVERYONE). Raw materials, like polished concrete and graphic tiles, help hide dirt and look stunning while doing it. The textured walls are a subtle touch that makes a big impact-- not your typical painted walls. Matte black, glass, and metallic accents complete this look that we love.

DESIGN TIP: If you don't want to re-tile your floor but love the look, you can bring in the beautiful graphic quality of the tiles by purchasing just a few and using them as coasters. Set a water glass or make-up brush vessel on top. Throw in a graphic bath mat and a few other accessories, and BOOM, you're on your way to your very own modern industrial bathroom. 

 

LOOK 2

TROPICAL ESCAPE

Wouldn't it be great if every time you used your bathroom it felt like a mini-vacation? A moment all to yourself? A little recharge time just for you? Well it can feel like this, and it should! We give you the tools to create a bathroom that let's you look winter in the eye and say “not today."  A collection of warm woods, teak accents and tropical motifs will help you bring this look home. We always push for live plants; use as many as you can fit for extra clean air and a casual, laid-back vibe. Your retreat awaits...
