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.

After all the shopping is done take a minute to watch this video and dream about these fantasy gifts – personally I would like the “Dream Folly”!
Finally Design Gifts (you didn’t think I would skip those did you?!)
Accessories to impress your gift list and none will break the bank.
Stone Candles designed by Tom Dixon for Design Within Reach. Can be used with a variety of candle sizes – very clever.
Love this Chunky, Tasseled Throw from West Elm. Looks and feels hand-made, the perfect gift for those cold winter evenings.
