When we moved into our apartment last year, the inspiration was flowing for how I wanted to decorate the different rooms. We love this place for the many areas that are drenched with sunlight and have more of a “house” feel. Sadly, the bathrooms are not those areas. Frankly, the bathrooms are dark, windowless, and definitely have an “apartment” feel with lots of basic, nothing-to-write-home-about fixtures. It’s not worth investing money into any permanent aspects of the place since we don’t own it, so any updates we do have to be in the accessory realm. I made it my mission to upgrade this bathroom as best I could with an all-white look to keep it feeling light and fresh, and little pops of black for some minimalist accents. I also decided that no product that wasn’t pretty to look at was allowed outside of the cabinets. I scoured all the beauty brands that were not only good products, but had well designed packaging that would serve as decor on the counter.

We found these two art prints at a boutique in Florence and are by far my favorite additions to the space. I love how they add some “unbasicness” to the main wall. We also added some plants to bring some life into an otherwise stark space, along. A luxurious candle, like this one from Byredo and a nice room spray (obsessed with this one from Diptyque) can also do wonders to the overall feeling of the room when I come in here.
Aesop Reverence Aromatique hand wash / Kiehl’s Creme De Corps / Evo gluttony volume shampoo / Evo bride of gluttony conditioner / Banksy in New York book / H&M skull bath towel (similar) / Umbra black waste basket / CB2 nesting tables / Diptyque ‘Bais’ room spray / West Elm woven stripe bath mat
I would love to hear about how you guys add luxe touches to the blah spaces in your home!
