So, my “A-Ha” takeaway is this…When you’re faced with a new project, find one aspect that you love…and build everything else around that. It doesn’t have to be in the most obvious place to make an impact.
Inspiration is all around us, but when it’s time to make a commitment to something, I think we all can be a little nervous. Is there something better? Will I love it in 5 years? Or 10?
Last week at Blogfest, House Beautiful Editor-In-Chief, Newell Turner asked us to share our “A-Ha” moments…so I thought I would share the process of creating our new powder bath and the “A-Ha” moment that started it all.
Our new powder bath will be used primarily by our sons and their friends. It is located just outside their new playroom on a 2nd floor. For this reason, I wanted it to be functional, but I didn’t want to compromise on style.
Instead of focusing on wallpaper, like I did on our primary powder bath, I looked down for inspiration. I started with floor tile before shopping for anything else. And, once I committed to this fun, Moroccan style, everything else fell into place.
