I thought this was the perfect example of how to make good use of all the space in your home. Rather that create dead space, the designer added a nook above the pantry and narrow shelves above the sink. The shapes that take form are naturally gorgeous and the simple finishes aren't to shabby either! You can see more of this home (and more clever use of shape) here. Happy mid-week everyone, hope it's a good one!

Hello everyone, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Is anyone here ready for Spring yet? The sun was shining here today and it actually felt warm outside and I've decided I am more that ready for the next season to make it's mark. Tulips, fresh light linens and open windows are what I think about when it comes to Spring. It's time to air out this stuffy house, wash the windows and add a touch more lightness to everything-I am most defiantly ready for Spring begin. What are some of your favorite Springtime rituals? New coat of paint on the walls, preparing the garden perhaps? Whatever it may be-I think it's time. We may have another frost before Winter ends, but there is nothing better than being prepared and with the start of a new month and my inspiration folder is full and I've already begun the fresh paint and planters here and I can't wait to do more! Have a wonderful day!!

As we end the month of February (where did the time go?) and a month of beautiful bathroom design, I wanted to close this segment with a nice spread of the perfect places to bathe. Every bathroom must have the main ingredients to make them functional, but going that extra step while designing your new bath should include beauty as well form and function. There's nothing like an inspiring shower or tub to make your daily bathing routine more enjoyable and while I'm usually shower kind of gal (due to time and tiredness) I would definitely pencil a bath into my daily schedule if I had any of these tubs! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and stay tuned next week for my next monthly segment announcement (as I'm quite enjoying these)!

We all need a little sparkle in our life, why not in our homes too! Gems and stones create beautiful scenery on their own or attached within practical objects such as lamps and handles. Although I can't say I know the types or backgrounds of every stone, I do know a little and I'm always interested in learning more. They create such energy and practical beauty, I could have them hanging around every room in my home everyday! Happy mid-week everyone!

Hello everyone and welcome to a new week! The idea for last week was to post when I could however, vacation just got the best of me and I did what naturally felt right-lazy, lazy and more lazy surrounded by tons of fun! That's what vacations are supposed to be about right? and with kids in tow, small spaces can be very challenging to work in! So to start this week off I am posting all my gatherings for last week's bathroom details this week. Bathrooms are usually the smallest of the most used rooms in our home, but they can be used to display just as much personality and style as any living or eating space. Light fixtures, hardware, wall paper, mirrors, accessories, every little detail counts when working to create a relaxed environment to bathe, primp or seek some quite time away from the chaos of the rest of your home (ok I won't lie, get away from the kids). My husband and I have been mulling over the idea of starting a bathroom renovation soon and some of these beautiful bathroom details are really coming in handy for my own inspiration. I hope you all enjoyed a nice weekend and I look forward to getting back on track with my schedule and a long overdue office clean (because who is inspired to work in a messy office)!
Have a wonderful day!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a nice weekend and found some time to reflect on anything and everything that inspires you! I've always found that this is the time of year when I feel the most inspired for future home projects and room styling. The weather is usually drab and rainy and you would think being forced to stay inside so much would get depressing (ok, sometimes it still does and rain and all, I will eventually go outside), but it's usually now when I begin browsing and pinning ideas for the coming months and really take an inventory of what I have and what I would like to change. My style is constantly evolving which tends to keep things fresh and exciting, however a few new ideas never hurt a thing! And if you've never heard me say this before I will say it again-the details most definitely count and sometimes just a few simple changes such as new handles on your kitchen drawers to a new picture on the wall, can make a huge impact on how you use and see your space. I am off to the mountains (finally) for the week and I will be posting a few short things including some beautiful bathroom details you will all want to see!
Have a wonderful day!

Hello everyone! We are almost to the end of another week and my trip out of town is just that much closer. It's been quite some time since I've featured a Brining A Room Together post here and I thought my month of bathroom design deserved one. I found this beautiful bathroom design by Rolies + Dubois featuring one of my favorite surfaces, marble. While this bathroom is very simple and clean I thought I would make a few additions to the look and give this space a little life (i.e. accessorize). We all have our necessities in the bathroom, favorite soaps and lotions, soft plush towels, but what about the decor? I always like to add some plant life to my bathrooms, wall hangings and if I had the room in any of mine, stools and baskets just because! What is your favorite bathroom accessory? Candles, rugs? Oh yes, and while I didn't add it here, great lighting in the bathroom is always a must!
Have a wonderful day!

Continuing on with this months bathroom theme, here is a gorgeous rustic bathroom that's calling my name. Concrete tub (wow), large windows, greenery and the perfect accessory to help wash the day away, candles. What do you think of this bathroom? Could you see yourself spending endless hours in here never wanting to leave? Forget showers, I would make time to take a long bath everyday if I had this tub! Happy mid-week everyone!!

Ok, so the fact that it finally snowed here in Seattle (and I mean a good snow, the sledding and making snowmen type), actually has nothing to do with today's post, but I was just so excited I had to shout it out somewhere and my post title seemed like a great place to do that! Today's finds are a perfect example of why neutrals are so beautiful. I love color when appropriate, but personally I would much prefer toned down rooms that express personality with texture and creative details. Uniquely placed wall hangings, plants adorning shelves in small pots and a little bling here and there, now that's the kind of space I would like to call home (and stay inside reading a book by the fire all day). I hope you all had wonderful weekend and are geared up for another week ahead. One more week and it's vacation time in the mountains (more snow!), I can't wait! Have a lovely day!

Hello everyone and happy weekend! I received an email the other day and it led to the discovery of these artistically beautiful pillows by a new company that just launched called Kuchi Kuu (btw-I love this name). Owner Marsha Bradley uses her and other selected artists images to adorn the covers of these 100% cotton-twill pillows. They are filled with all organic materials and I can already picture many of them in my own home. Check out the Kuchi Kuu website to see all of Marsha's other designs and I'm telling you, they are all wonderful! Have a fabulous weekend, I'll see you next week!
