wow, people. is there really a need to be this harsh about a decorating post?? one or two harsh comments is enough to get the point across...and even then, is it really necessary?

that hendrix poster is a brilliant way to tie together the pink and brown/gray. excellent job making a boring bathroom look intentional!

mine never end up on the floor but they do end up on a chair, or at the end of the bed. dirty clothes always go in the hamper, so i've trained myself there, but i can always talk myself out of chores (there's always tomorrow!). i'll definitely try this counting trick because i always feel better when i just get it done, whatever it is.

I loved those tables Grace! Congrats! I think they look awesome next to the couch.

My favorite piece of secondhand furniture is this 1950s green settee I bought with my stimulus check last year. It's by far the most wonderful thing I own.

it is sad to say that i have moved around my entire life (military kid) and have never done this! i always had a suitcase with the essential personal items but never a box for essential house items. thank you for the tip!

Isn't the point of camping to spend time in nature, away from the masses and noise and pollution?

I have a friend who stores the ugly things in a hall closet and pulls them out only when the giver of the ugly thing is coming to visit. I always thought that was the nicest thing to do, if you have the room. Then, after a long while and a few visits, you can get rid of it. Even they would forget what they gave you.

Thank you for this info! I've been looking for a good, affordable drum shade for a while and I'm laughing that I never knew there was a Lamps Plus just down the street from me...apparently I haven't been looking hard enough! Ha.

ok, on a second look, i see that those black towel bars and soap holders are stuck on the wall, so disregard my replacement comment. man, i've been there and i really feel for you!


Apartment Therapy Boston | Good Questions: Shower Curtain for Pink Blue Bathroom?

that. is. just. awesome. if you aren't awake in the morning before you walk in there, you certainly will be as soon as you do!

i would say go all white with accessories. you already have so much color going on that to add more graphic elements might make it too busy, and i think the white might calm it down some. just my two cents, but i tend to like calmer bathrooms, especially since it's the first place i have to go to in the morning.

i agree with patrick to try and paint the window sill...at least get rid of that orange and you can easily, and inexpensively, replace the black towel bars, etc., with silver ones (and you can take them with you when you leave). that'll help as well to minimize the whirlwind of color.

There is also a great company called Outstanding in the Field that does the same thing, except it's not a TV show. Anyone can go and they host around 30 or 40 dinners a year all over the country. Check it out and go! www.outstandinginthefield.com
