It’s January 26, and I just took down my last Christmas decoration yesterday. Boy does it feel good! With a busy January, a late holiday photoshoot, a trip to the Big Apple, and a cold/flu, Christmas stuck around for longer than I would have liked. Even though it took a while, I’m excited to finally be holiday-free.
I had hoped to show you around my upstairs during the holidays, but I ended up not decorating much up there, so it never happened. However, I finally “finished” my bathroom project from two years ago and hung some things on the walls in my bedroom. I also spruced up a few things here and there so, I thought I’d show you around up there.
I should mention that, for some reason, all of my rooms upstairs have never felt complete. And while some of the changes that I’ve made have helped, I still don’t feel like things are “done.” Or at least done enough to make me not feel anxious every time I look at those spaces. So, one of my goals for this year is to finally finish the rooms so I feel good when I look at them. We can save that talk for another post; I just figured it was worth mentioning.
Anywho, over in my bathroom I finally hung the light and mirror, installed shelves, and added artwork. This bathroom is right off my bedroom, and it’s the one I use, so it’s nice to have it fully functional again.
(For reference, the mirror is from West Elm [but no longer available], the shelves are from Target, the light is from Restoration Hardware, and the bunny print is from HomeGoods.)
If you’ll recall, back in 2015 I gave this bathroom a mini-makeover with paint, a new sink, and fixtures. In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a bit embarrassed about the bathrooms in my house. Their style is either 90s or 50s. It’s not in the good vintage way, but rather the “we-really-need-to-be-gutted” way. (2017 might be the year of major bathroom makeovers!)
However, this little refresh goes to show what paint and a few new accessories can do. Although a major makeover wasn’t in the budget at the time, it still keeps my progress and design flowing.
Thinking about keeping things flowing, my friends over at Liquid-Plumr sent me some of their Full Clog Destroyer to help keep my pipes flowing freely.
When refreshing a space such as a bathroom, it’s important to also take care of the stuff you cannot see that are essential for a smooth-running bathroom. With regular monthly use, Liquid-Plumr can get your drains moving faster. I know it’s not something you normally think of, but it’s great for fixing clogs and taking care of general maintenance. Prevent the problem, right?
While I still have a few tweaks to make in this space, it’s certainly looking a whole lot cuter. What do you think?
Over in my guest bedroom, I tucked in a few more accessories and added this round mirror that’s been sitting in its box for a year. (See, you think I have everything together, but I really don’t.) I also hung this hand-crafted art piece I picked up a few years ago at an art festival. This space would still benefit from a few more pieces of art, a cozy chair, and some accessories to really finish it off, but it’s getting there.
In my hallway, I moved around some pillows and added a travel souvenir from Hawaii to my DIY picture ledges. I really do love this space. For a brief moment every day I get to pretend I’m at the beach. It doesn’t get better than that.
Over in my closet, I finally hung the full-length mirror that has been resting on the floor for a good two years. And, as you know, I’ve also been busy attempting to clear out my closet of clothes and accessories. While I need to make another round, sending a few bags to Goodwill has made a huge difference.
Over in my other guest room, not a whole lot has changed. This room has always perplexed me, so I may just need to start fresh this spring. While I do like the coral/pink, I never felt it was “me” so something has to change. Maybe it’s time for a full makeover! What do you think?
I hope you enjoyed this peek into my upstairs and are excited for more interior inspiration and home refreshes in 2017. There are lots more coming!
