Are you a renter, live in a dorm, don’t want to commit to anything too permanent in your decorating style but at the same time, looking for a little change to spice things up at your house or just a new DIY project? If you’re like me, you probably get tired of looking at the same things over and over, day after day and every so often crave a little something different in your home décor. You don’t have to go crazy and change everything. I keep reading suggestions on paint projects to update your home by adding a splash of color to just one part of a wall, for example. Low commitment, low cost and low time. That’s just where my latest idea started -with my peachy orange bathroom wall.
I found this gorgeous glam walk-in closet inspiration photo on one of my endless searches for ways to organize my clothes in my new, but downsized, apartment. Even though I don’t have the space for the fabulous walk-in pictured here, I knew someday, somehow, I’d want to look back on this for inspiration.
Well, it looks like my day has come sooner than I expected and I just might be able to bring this beauty of a room to light (the vanity light of my bathroom that is). The peach walls of my bathroom are similar to the blush pink dress shown in the foreground and the lush tufted grey wall and vintage gold mirror in back have just the look I was hoping to achieve (and a chandelier adds such timeless elegance to any room, but I don’t’ want to get carried away – yet).
Does this not look just like the backdrop to my dream dressing room?!?! I will show you more pix as the progress of fixing up my vintage glam bathroom continues…what do you think of the picks so far?

What girl (or woman) doesn’t love a pretty vanity area to get ready in each day and night? I picture a white vanity table with a matching scalloped edge mirror or a fabulous gilted gold desk and coordinating leopard print stool; whatever you imagine that would make you feel like a queen getting ready for her day. Here are some of the recent treasures I’ve come across lately that you can add to your own personal vanity that won’t break the bank.
My absolute favorites are the filigree perfume bottles that were so popular in the 50s and 60s. One of the ones I have for sale is undoubtedly made by Stylebuilt, a manufacturing company from New York, well known for their “guaranteed never to tarnish” filigree metals that enwrap these beautiful trinkets. Not only are they stunning to look at, but they are super functional as well, serving as a container to hold your most breathtaking of scents, perfumes and fragrances. I have two of these beautiful bottles for sale, one with intricate rose detailing and the other with an ornately melded braided rope.

With Winter on the horizon and a possible snow storm looming in early November, I thought this would be a perfect time to share with all of you some of my cozy finds this past weekend during my adventures in thrifting. With a glamorous look and an oh so soft touch, I stumbled on not one, but two of Bath & Body Works’ dazzling winter white handbags from collections past. One a medium sized tote in winter white suede with faux fur piping and trim; the other a large and stunning creamy quilted tote also with faux fur trim; these two handbags have earned a spot on my wall (literally), hanging high for easy visibility, as any beautiful art object should be seen.
