February is the month for love, so let’s talk about how to makeover your bathroom and boudoir to create a beautiful and luxurious space for relaxation and rejuvenation, shall we? Even small changes can create a new ambiance in the space you spend at least a third of your life.
One designer said, “The boudoir is the place where the man is the invited guest. It should make the spouse or significant other look beautiful and feel pampered.” Could your space use a “refresh?”

When you think of interior design for this important suite of rooms, it is natural to think of function and form, but the elements of texture, lighting and color can create dramatic transformations without a major renovation.

Let’s start with color. If your goal is to create a space that exudes calmness and serenity, here is an example of how to make an instant change to a room that does not need structural changes. “Cool” colors like blues, greens and shades or tints of white can be used effectively to evoke a sense of softness and visual texture to your room.

Since you are likely to entertain at least once during December, you are probably thinking about how to make your home feel and look its best without spending the money you’d prefer to spend on presents. When you focus on the “experience” you create for your guests and family, your home will always present its best face.

Top tips for the holidays include doing the extra little things, and here are a few of my favorites:

  • Swag bag with a $10 Amazon card and a $10 Starbucks card with a two-pack of homemade cookies wrapped in cellophane and tied with a beautiful ribbon for dinner guests.
  • For overnight guests, find out their favorite music and download some music to an iPod and have a docking station set up with the music in their room.
  • Include a carafe and glass on both sides of the bed

  • Find out your guests favorite flowers and have at least one vase in their rooms.
  • Get two luggage racks for the closet for easy unpacking and packing (and to preserve your bed covers).
  • Include candles and a lighter in the room.

  • Have comfy bathrobes and slippers in the closet.
  • Include a little basket with snacks like granola bars and fruits in the room.
  • Have a hairdryer, extra toothbrushes, and a basket of toiletries in the bathroom including Q-tips, cotton balls and Band-Aids.
  • Include a journal for your guests to share their favorite memories.

  • You can get a small flat screen TV for hundreds of dollars, and even include two pairs of headphones so they can listen without disturbing the rest of the house.
  • If you know their favorite actors, rent a movie, or add a few of those movies to your Netflix queue.
  • Write a handwritten note to let your guests know how important they are to you.
  • Include a map of the area, and even local magazines and a local guide book if your city/town has one.

Enjoy the time with your friends and family. They will cherish the memories of how you made them feel. I know I am looking forward to seeing lots of our friends at our Christmas party and can’t wait to see all the relatives over the holidays.

Then, once the decorations are packed up for the next year, make a checklist of what you’d like to enhance in your home for next year. Let me know if you’d like a complimentary “My Interior Design Dream Book” planning guide as my gift to you when you book a consultation for January.

Cool weather is even sneaking into Central Florida and my thoughts turn wistfully to a fireplace. I have a little fire pit outside but I long for a beautiful indoor version or an upgraded fire pit. Here are some to dream about……what is your flavor? Indoor or out? Or both?
