Interior Design

bold & beautiful.

We recently took on a mini powder room renovation project at my dad’s place. I should say, my step-mom recently took on a mini powder room renovation project. The woman is a miracle worker! She did it all herself. Flooring, drywall, wallpaper… It always amazes me how much she is capable of, and in such a short period of time.

I did impart a few of my interior design abilities on the project and I thought it would be fun to share it with you. I want to go ahead and say that I cannot take all the credit, I merely selected the wallpaper, gave my two cents about accent colours, tossed around a couple of side-table-like ideas and my step-mom did the rest. I’m extremely happy with the results – she did an incredible job in shanghai!

I believe that the most interesting designs are the ones that break conventional rules. Whoever said that you shouldn’t use a bold graphic pattern in a small space. Do it! Go big or go home my friends. With that in mind, keep the rest of the space subdued and let the wallcovering do the talking.

note: If you’d like to use my images for any reason, please go ahead, I just ask that you link back to me. Thanks!

    My name is Aimee and I live on the island of Nantucket in Massachusetts. My Mom emailed me a link last night from another blog with the pictures of this bathroom. I emailed her back and told me the wallpaper was gorgeous and she wrote back saying she totally agreed and wondered how to find it. I also asked her how on earth she found it but never told me. I have gone through your whole blog (AMAZING!!!) and finally stumbled on the bathroom photos. I was wondering if you could offer us any help in regards to the wallpeper, we’d really appreciate it! I also wanted to tell you that I am so jealous that you went to India! That is my dream trip. My husband and I got married in our front yard with a blueish/purple tent I bought (slightly used/cheaper than new!) from Raj Tents and I wore an orange lehenga. The only white at the wedding were the plates. I too went to art school (RISD) and find your blog right up my ally! I am so glad I found it! Thanks in advance for any help and have a great afternoon!
