Spring Bathroom Makeovers

Hi everyone.. please help me welcome Sue from My Bathrooms who I am excited to have sharing here today. These bathrooms are really beautiful and I can definitely see some awesome awesome potential for us DIY'ers and crafters. Hope you all enjoy ...

My name is Sue and I am very thankful to Jodi, who was kind enough to invite me over to share my special bathroom décor tips for spring and summer season!

7 Simple & Easy
Spring-Summer Bathroom Decor Tips


Get your bathroom ready for spring and summer by clearing
away the warmth and comfort that is so necessary in winter and autumn. If you
are stuck for summertime inspiration, try out one or more of the following
seven fabulous ideas!

1. Hello Sailor!


Go nautical in your bathroom this year! The effect is easily achieved by adding jaunty marine touches like a preserved starfish and some shells (or pictures of such underwater creatures if you do not want to fill your bathroom with such items) and adopting a white, pale blue and navy color scheme.  Ebay offers perfect accessories for a nautical theme bathroom.

2.  Summer Fresh


Add some summer freshness to your bathroom décor this year. Invest in a sunshine inspired accessory set that picks out shades of yellows, green, red and orange to fill your bathroom with the warmth and joy of summer.

3.  Spring into the Season


Simultaneously brighten and lighten your décor infusing the décor with cool spring colors such as pink and green, taking out your warm winter shades, like orange, deep red and browns. This will make your bathroom cool and welcoming even on the hottest day.

4.  Go All-White


An all-white bathroom looks great and offers a cool sanctuary for overheated and sweaty bodies! White towels and accessories are easy to find and there is rarely any stress about finding matching items! Touches of ice blue can add an extra chilly dimension and alleviate some of the unrelenting whiteness!

5.  Rustic Charm


Give your bathroom a hint of country joys with some raw wood cabinetry and storage from My Bathrooms.  A hint of rural blissalways goes down well with family and friends and you will love your summer-ready ablutions! Do not forget to add a pot plant or some fresh flowers to add some natural prettiness to your bathroom.

6.  Minimalist Delight


For busy summers when quick cooling showers, rather than lengthy wallowing baths are the order of the day, opt for clean clear lines in a minimalist bathroom,stripped down to the bare essentials. Frills, draped fabrics and plenty of cocooning warmth are perfect for the colder months, but the summer months cry out for outdoor activity and bustle with bathroom visits becoming shorter and
purely functional.

7.  It IS all Black and White


Opting for a monochrome look in the bathroom is an excellent way to clear out winter décor and provide a clean and practical background for your summer activities. Switch colors for black and white soft furnishings and accessories and see how your warm and cozy bathroom transforms itself into a coolly inviting arena.


Which one is your favorite??

Spring has sprung!

Well at least I thought so... until we got some FREEZING COLD WEATHER earlier this week.

I finally got sick of my Christmas wreathe hanging on my door when we got a little warm up a few weeks ago. In combo with the fact that my mom got me some new burlap chevron ribbon from Hobby Lobby... I couldnt help myself.

Isn't she pretty???

Hopefully this is the start of a little more craftiness from me!! Happy Easter :)
