Spring may have arrived this past March 20th but it’s only in these last few days that the sun has begun to shine warmer and has me actually believing summer is indeed around the corner. I felt it was time to reflect this in tweaking a few decorations around the house -starting with the powder room. I’ve blogged about the powder room before, you can find the entry here for a quick refresher.
At the grocery store this past weekend I was so inspired by the bright colors of the JOE soap and body cream packaging that I snatched up the entire line (which happened to be on super clearance!) and decided to use them as accessories for the powder room. The round bars of soap look like candy and I loved how they were displayed in the store: on plastic trays with slots so that the soaps could be arranged on their sides. I bought an entire row including the store’s disposable display tray so that I could do the same at home. A few isles over their were some colorful towels and so yes, a yellow towel was also thrown into the shopping cart!
Live plants have always been my go-to home decor accessory -they are by far the cheapest way to add texture, color and interest to any space. The adorable little cup sitting atop the back of the toilet was only $1 at one of my new favorite second hand shops and I planted a tiny fern in it that I bought at the hardware store on my way home.
Isn’t it great when things come together quick & easy?
The 101: Change your towels and accessories with the seasons. Use practical items such as soap and hand cream for an inexpensive and easy way to bring decor and color to a bathroom. Plants always add texture and interest.
