Everyone should have a killer powder room. It is the one room your guests will see, so make an impact. Here is a friend’s powder room, which I completely adore. This small eclectic space mixes old and new--the modern white fixtures combined with a vintage brass and crystal chandelier and art deco mirror create a little jewel box . I love the way she placed a large painting, my “Flower Girl II," in a tiny space. The lovely eccentric rug from Anthropologie complements the painting and ties the room together.
If you are think of sprucing up an old powder room, consider interesting wallpaper or a vibrant dark paint color. A powder room is your opportunity to go wild! Embrace the drama!!
These are some of the powder rooms that I love and find inspiration from!
I am crazy about vintage ethnic hemp pillows. These textiles are handwoven and hand-dyed by women of the Hmong Hill Tribe, an ethnic minority group of the highlands in the north of Thailand (the mountainous regions of China, Vietnam, Laos and Thailand). I also like the shibori hand-dyed fabrics. Shibori is a Japanese manual resist dyeing technique, which produces patterns by folding and twisting fabric.
At some point, I would like to create my own textiles but for this DIY, I am using found and bought fabrics.
INSPIRATION FOR HMONG TRIBAL PILLOW
INSPIRATION FOR SHIBORI PILLOW
For the first pillow, I purchased 2.5 yards of Thai Hmong Indigo from Native Arts Treasures on Etsy. I centered fabric over a white linen and cut fabric into an 18 inch square. I used a coordinating denim fabric for the back. Sewed both sides together, add insert and hand stitched pillow closed. Tip: I like to use an insert one to two inches larger for a fuller look.
My second pillow, is made of shibori scraps I found while rummaging through my upholsterer's remnants. I sewed the pieces together to form a pattern. I used the same coordinating denim for the back as I used for the first pillow.
I think they turned out great and look fantastic in my family room.

There are so many gorgeous textiles out there now, it makes my head spin. I have been loving the block-printed linens for a while now and can't help incorporating pillows, drapes or upholstered furniture into all my interiors. I found Etsy to be the great source for pillows. Check this etsy site out.
Here are my favorite designers that do it best...... in no particular order.
Teen Bedroom Makeover
This teen client wanted a bedroom makeover. With a few inspiration photos from the latest RH Teen, this lovely space was created. I think it is feminine and sophisticated and a spaces she will love for years to come.
My client knew she wanted to use the pale gray RH bedding which helped select the colors for the room. I am crazy about a C2 paint I choose for my own daughter's room, Svelte C2-867. The pale blush color was use as the overall wall color. Benjamin Moore's Intense White OC-51 was painted on the vaulted side walls and Love Always 876 for ceiling color.
This unique dresser is a family heirloom but the dark wood finish dated the room. I had the dresser painted a warm gray and added a lighter accent gray to coordinate with the marble top and make the handles pop. The paint really brightened and updated this lovey cherished piece. It turned out great.
A small basement bathroom gets a playful makeover. The homeowner wanted to keep tiled walls and floor and most of the larger elements of the bathroom. A new white vanity, modern faucet, seeded glass vanity lighting and round minimal mirror give the room a fresh look. The interesting Thibaut wallpaper becomes the focal point of the bathroom.
I started by creating a few designs. The first concept is classic with a gorgeous Thibaut wallpaper, wood vanity, coordinating mirror, and great lighting. Second concept, and winner, I call the preppy look. Again, pretty Thibaut wallpaper, white wood vanity and minimal mirror. The third concept is modern and minimal. Blue paint, dark wood vanity and a strip light. Lastly, the boho look. Cool wallpaper, vanity, mirror and lighting.
WINGBACK CHAIR MAKEOVER
Don't get rid of an antique wingback chair before you consider reupholstering it! Give new life to your old family heirlooms and make them fabulous. Check out this transformation.
This update is fresh and light. Originally, the idea was to whitewash the wood frame but the wood was too red. The frame would have looked pink so we painted the chair instead.
A Robert Allen fabric was selected for the front of the chair and a coordinating velvet was perfect for the piping and back.
Painted wood frame with shabby chic affect. Now all this chair needs is a lovely lumbar pillow, preferably a Peter Dunham pillow.
Which is your favorite?
I found this image of a Scandinavian style living room and thought it was a lovely eclectic mix of old and new.
