Inspiration: Brighten Up the Bathroom!

Posted in bathroom, details at 6:36 am by homehappy

A simple, yet great idea from ApartmentTherapy: Put a beautiful flower (or two) in a small vase on the sink, to transform a cold bathroom into a bright and lively one.


Here’s another related tip from BHG: Instead of spending lots of dough on lots of flowers to fill one large vase, create striking and inexpensive centerpieces by filling a cluster of small vases with a few stems of flowers. The colored-glass vases are flea market finds that glow in the sunlight.
