There is so much beautiful design work to see on the internet these days, between all of the amazing blogs out there, Pinterest, e-magazines and newsletters, not to mention the designer portfolios themselves, that sometimes I find myself rushing to take it all in. In an effort to "see it all, " I don't really see anything, especially what it is that appeals to me in a photograph or design. One of the assignments I give to my new clients is to find photos of rooms they like and try to determine what it is about that room or photo that strikes them. Last week on a whim, after seeing a kitchen that knocked my socks off, I wrote a post tilted "Kitchens on the Brain: 10 Things" where I made myself really look for what it was that I liked about that kitchen, I easily identified 10 things. Since one should practice what one preaches, I thought I would give that concept a go on a semi-regular basis, so here is today's installment....
a rustic bathroom
1) Reclaimed wood vanity
2) Gooseneck faucets in oil rubbed bronze
3) Swing arm sconces
4) Interesting mirror hung over shuttered windows
5) Simple accessories including canisters and a touch of green in the form of plants
6) Large hex tile on walls
7) Black paned door and enclosure, looks to be old and re-purposed
8) Crisp white towels
9) Horizontal wood plank walls
10) Flooring - wood in sink area, mosaic tile in toilet and shower area

I hope all of you Moms out there had a wonderful Mother's Day, spent with family, relaxing and appreciating the little things. My Mother's Day included a long bike ride and breakfast at my favorite "greasy spoon" as well as some yard work, burgers on the grill and a few rounds of "Banagrams." It was perfect!
Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design? If so please contact me, I would love to help your room feel better with a Room Rx.
