the blues — a lot of us get them, but the secret may be to actually embrace them. there’s so many beautiful shades of blue out there in the world, and bringing them into your home can do wonders. a pillow, a piece of art perhaps — blue blends well with so many other colors, and is truly a classic. from my very favorite wallpaper to worn in denim blue jeans to old school converse sneakers, here’s a look at putting a positive spin on blue!

rustic modern black and white bathroom with freestanding tub. / sfgirlbybay

longing for a feminine, but not over-the-top girly bathroom? then this is the post for you. if you’ve seen my bathroom, you know i love a black and white bathroom, but i think even with a classic look like that, you can still add funky and feminine touches — vintage mirrors, nude sketches and portrait paintings for instance, add an interesting and artistic twist. a vintage stool looks chic next to the tub — and a stylish spot for your favorite scented candles, and perhaps some pretty healing crystals. be sure to add the softest bath towels for a touch of luxury.
