Basement Bathroom Makeover Update

Meet the tiniest room in my house that has been my biggest design challenge to date. An update on the basement bathroom makeover has been long overdue. Like waaaaaaay long over due. Here’s a quick walk down memory lane. Remember when the basement flooded and we decided since we were forced to renovate, why not gut the bathroom? Well everything came to a screeching halt when it came to one particular detail…the mirror. I know right? It all happened while finishing up Potty Paradise, but didn’t think it would hold me up this badly. But it just goes to show you that design takes time. Don’t rush it…which apparently also goes for naming this space.

That’s right. No one in the house has been able to come up with a good name for this space. We talked about Black Beauty, but that seems basic compared to Potty Paradise. Maybe you’ll have suggestions by the time you get to the end of this post?

Vintage Scores — Hallway Decor

I fell in love with a blue chair last Fall. The Savoy Flea posted it to her Instagram and the velvety goodness caught my eye…my heart skipped a beat. A couple months later, I made my way down to the shop. The entire drive into the city I wondered if the pretty blue peacock chair had sold…I rang the bell, walked in and finally saw her in person. She took my breath away. Another customer walked over and touched her. Laser beams shot out of my eyes and every fiber of my being wanted to scream back off!

I didn’t dare sit in her for fear i’d never leave. It was pure torture to walk out the door.

Home Decor – New Artwork for Spring

Since we moved in, I’ve kinda wanted to break up with the artwork in the kitchen. A beach scene I bought 5 years ago that hung above the mantle in the old house. I loved it when I bought it, but now, well, I think it’s just time for a change. When we moved, I dismissed my old fling and haphazardly placed it in the kitchen…a tropical, Hawaiian beach scene. It’s been a good run with this beachy piece, but let’s shake it up and do a switcheroo. Let’s find some new artwork for Spring!

Home Tour — Marianne Brown’s Denver Dwelling

When Marianne Brown emailed me out of the blue and said, “Hey, my home is unique, cool and eclectic, would you like to feature it on your blog?” I said, “Heck ya I would! Home tours are hella fun.” 

Why do I like featuring homes that don’t belong to me? If you guessed, “Kyla, you’re that total weirdo that looks into homes on evening walks…not in a creepster way…but in a I want to see your pillows kinda way,” you’re completely right. Gotta home tour you think I should feature? What are you waiting for??? Sharing is caring, so email it over for review, and be sure to visit Ashley Redmond’s Tiny Treehouse home tour.

Today we’re touring Marianne Brown’s home in Denver, CO. She’s an incredible photographer and claims thrift stores are her sanctuary…my kinda gal. As most of you know, I’m a chair hoarder. Well, Marianne one upped that sich. She’s a sofa hoarder. Don’t believe me? Check out her Etsy shop chucked full of vintage beauties (and some great photography prints as well, I love the bull print). But mitts of that green 1970’s channel back…because that should be mine, LOL.
