"When you realize that a beautiful interior has very little to do with objects and a whole lot to do with spirit, general well being and upliftment you find the soul of interior design. If you have respect for your surroundings and everything has it's perfect place you interact with your world differently you carry yourself differently. My father used to say that the state of your surroundings is the state of your mind. Look around your home, let your home be the foundation of your aspiration."

Girl's bathroom

I am currently working on a girl's bathroom that will be completely gutted with an end result that feels fresh, youthful and fun. We sourced the vanity from Restoration Hardware and that was our starting point.  I then found a great Annie Selke fabric with a bold poppy print perfect for a roman shade.  The colours in the fabric were the jumping off point for the glass mosaic tiles.  I am using them as an accent in the middle of one shower wall. The 2x4 white tiles will be laid in a brick pattern everywhere else including the apron of the tub.  I then came across these great capiz shell sunburst mirrors and little sparkly ice cube pendant's that will hang above each mirror to add some glam.  I hope the girl's like it!
